Students at the Catholic University of America will pay a 3.6% increase in tuition, room, board and fees for the 2017-2018 academic school year. For most of the undergraduate programs, the tuition will be $43,300. The 3.6% increase was approved by the University’s Board of Trustees.
Last year in April, the Board of Trustees raised tuition, room, board and student fees for the 2016-2017 academic year by 3.8% in comparison to the 2017-2018 academic year’s 3.6% in-crease. The increase for the 2016-2017 school year was enacted in order to expand and renovate the school’s campus infrastructure as well as modernize classrooms.
