Welcome to your summer transition to becoming a Catholic University student or as we like to say "Becoming A Cardinal". We are hard at work preparing a great in person August orientation program for you, but we recognize that your transition from a high school student to a college student is already well underway. We are here to help with all sorts of great resources including our virtual program called Becoming A Cardinal". 

Each first year student will be enrolled in the Becoming A Cardinal program at https://becomingacardinal.catholic.edu/ beginning in June and we will be expecting all of you to complete this online program by August 1st. When you visit the page you should be able to use the “Student Login” option to login using your Catholic University login credentials. 

This virtual program will start your journey of learning more about what services, resources, and expectations we have for all of our students here at Catholic. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from some of our current students in a number of the videos on the platform, create a list of links for information that you are personally interested in, and continue to visit the platform throughout the summer and even once you’re here on campus to reconnect with any of the information you need.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to us at cua-orientation@cua.edu or 202-319-6003.
