University of Saint Katherine is Closing

After almost 15 years of providing meaningful instruction and degree programs, the University is forced to close due to financial conditions. We are not accepting applications for summer or fall terms. We are working diligently with our students, WSCUC, BPPE, the Department of Education, and over 15 excellent colleges and universities to ensure the efficient transfer of our students, thereby allowing them the opportunity to complete their degrees.

Commencement is scheduled for May 18, 2024 and closure is May 17, 2024. Parchment will continue to remain the service for obtaining transcripts.

The Office of Student Assistance and Relief of the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education will provide direct support to affected students. This includes offering resources and information on student rights and available options, as well as connecting students to state and federal economic relief programs. As a result of USK’s closure, students may qualify for a discharge of federal student loans. Information on closed school loan discharges, including eligibility criteria, the loan discharge process, and answers to common questions on closed school discharges, is available here.

Transcripts: Parchment will continue to remain the service for obtaining transcripts.

We are grateful for our donors and supporters through the years, our staff, and the people who made USK a remarkable institution. Please contact Dr. Frank Papatheofanis at if you have questions.
