The Catholic University of America


Offered in Virginia and at The Library of Congress

All students must expect to earn credits on the campus of The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, because not all courses can be available at an off-site location. In fall, spring and summer sessions, we offer courses at off-campus sites. Any credit earned for coursework by CUA in Virginia can be transferred to CUA's principal location outside Virginia as part of the degree offered by CUA. Please consult our course schedules for more information on distance course offerings each semester. Jefferson Building, Library of Congress
