What is Session DD?

Session DD stands for Dynamically Dated course. These are special scheduled classes that have start and end dates that do not conform to our structured 15, 16, 25, and 26 sessions. Academic calendar deadlines are calculated for each dynamically dated session class. If you are enrolled in a DD class, you can view Cardinal Station by selecting the Academic Calendar icon () to the left of the class listing in the Schedule of Classes.

Both CUA and visiting CUA students can audit courses offered during the summer in consultation with individual departments and professors. Those auditing a course will receive the same tuition charges as those taking the course for credit. [back to top]

Will Catholic University's summer course apply toward my degree?

Students are urged to obtain written permission of their dean or academic adviser to ensure that the credits earned at The Catholic University of America may be transferred as they intended. The Catholic University of America is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Universities. All summer courses meet or exceed Middle States' standards for contact hours.  [back to top]

How do I transfer the credits once I complete the course?

Your dean will most likely need an official copy of your CUA transcript with your final grade. The Office of Enrollment Services at CUA must have a completed Transcript Request Form before they can mail out any documentation to your school. There is no separate transcript fee. To obtain a syllabus for a specific course, contact the individual department in which the course is offered.  [back to top]
