The Catholic University of America


Your student is about to begin an exciting new journey and we at The Catholic University of America, understand that you will be beside your student every step of the way. You play an important role in your student's success.

Through the Orientation program we encourage students to learn and understand the expectations and offerings of the Catholic University community. We hope that you and your student will talk about expectations, responsibility, transitional fears, and exciting opportunities, both before and during orientation and throughout their time at Catholic University. In this light we have designed a family orientation program that moves in conjunction with the student orientation program. Students and families will be encouraged to attend many sessions together, while other sessions will be marked specifically for families or for students.

If you have any questions over the course of the summer please call the Orientation program at 202-319-5627.

We look forward to seeing you in August!

Orientation Registration

Family members will register for Orientation at the same time as their student. Your student will be asked whether any guests will be attending with them. It is important that you be included in their online registration so that the appropriate number of meals and materials are ordered. There is a $60.00 charge for all guests age 12 and over who accompany our new students to Orientation.
