Investing in Your Future

A college degree is an important investment in your future, but financing that degree is often a concern for students and families. CUA's Office of Student Financial Assistance works to help students and families make a Catholic University education accessible.


Helpful Information

The process of applying for aid can seem complicated and time consuming, and our goal is to make it go as smoothly as possible for you. Catholic University participates in a wide variety of financial aid programs to assist our students and their families in paying for their post-secondary education. This is the place to find information about the various financial aid programs available at CUA as well as our policies and procedures. Financial aid policies and procedures can change due to changes in federal regulations or university decisions regarding aid; you should check this site regularly to get the most up-to-date information.
