Transform through experience
Mentorship, a broad curriculum, and hands-on experience prepare you for employment—and a lifetime of learning. At Catawba, you can begin as you are and transform with your interests. By offering our students the chance to be active participants inside and outside the classroom, Catawba focuses on developing the whole person. Students thrive in our nurturing campus environment by playing on one of our 22 NCAA Division II athletic teams, joining one of our more than 40 clubs or organizations, playing intramural sports, being part of our Catawba Spirit marching band, or participating in a musical group or theatre production.

Inspire by example
Committed professors challenge and encourage you while teaching you to think critically and creatively. When you’re engaged in your work, you’ll inspire others by example. You’ll get work-world experience through research and internships. With our C2C: Catawba to Career program, you’ll have help deciding on your major and minor in addition to exploring career options.

Belong to a legacy
You’ll belong to an inclusive and welcoming community of students from diverse backgrounds. Here you’ll feel supported to become the very best version of you. With small classes, a 13:1 student-faculty ratio, and the ability for students to create their own academic major, Catawba’s strength lies in its ability to help students nurture and fully realize their dreams.

We know affordability and value matter! Catawba is committed to helping students from all financial backgrounds achieve their dreams of a high-quality education. One hundred percent of freshmen at Catawba receive financial assistance. The cost of a private education at Catawba College can be comparable to that of a public university. Our financial aid staff will work with you to determine all the options available for you when it comes to your financial aid package.
