The Catholic University of America

Welcome to the Policies Website

Welcome to The Catholic University of America policies website. All officially-approved University-wide policies will be displayed on this website, including governance documents such as the Faculty Handbook and the Bylaws of the University.  Schools and Departments may host non-University wide policies on their own websites. Any copies (print or online) of policies that are inconsistent with the official version hosted on this site should be disregarded. The most current version of a policy will be found on this site.

To find policies by area of operation, click on the headings on the left hand side of the page and a list of policies in that area will appear. An A-Z index appears under Quick Links on the top, right hand side of this page.  A search box also is available at the top of this home page.

Please also be aware that the Announcements contain complete information about the graduate and undergraduate programs and academic policies of the University. Law School Policies are contained in the Law School Announcements, available at under Academics.

Questions regarding University policies may be directed to the University's Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer and Chief Privacy Officer, Vin Lacovara (tel. 202-319-6170, CUA-COMPLIANCE@CUA.EDU) who administers this policy website and the University's Compliance and Ethics Program.
