Welcome to The Catholic University of America's Graduate Studies website! The Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies works collaboratively with faculty and administrators from CUA's twelve schools to enhance the academic quality of graduate programs, and provides leadership and support to the University's graduate mission.

Each candidate who has fulfilled all degree requirements and has been recommended to the Academic Senate by the faculty is required to attend the commencement exercises, unless excused by the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies.
To be excused from commencement exercises, a letter must be sent to both the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies and the school dean, indicating the reason(s) for requesting the permission to be excused. If permission is granted by the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies, the student is responsible to make all necessary arrangements with both the school dean and the Office of Enrollment Services in forwarding the diploma.
