The mission of the University of Charleston is to educate each student for a life of productive work, enlightened living, and community involvement.

The University of Charleston offers scholarships to new international students. Awards vary but are based on high school GPA and ACT/SAT scores for freshmen and on college GPA for transfer students.

At all degree levels, St. Catherine integrates liberal arts and professional education within the Catholic tradition, emphasizing intellectual inquiry and social teaching, and challenging students to transformational leadership.
