Student Academic Success.

We are here for you!

Welcome to our virtual home!


There are a lot of things we are proud of here at Catawba College, and at the top of that list is our pledge to always embody our core values of Scholarship, Character, Culture, and Service. You’ll see it manifested in everything we do, and in every interaction you have with both our professional staff and our student staff. These core values distinguish a Catawba College student from college students anywhere else.

Whether you are a first-generation college student, a student-athlete, or attracted by our size or a particular major, coming to Catawba College is more than just "going back to school." It is an adventure in self-advocacy, independent living, learning to balance social life with the rigors of academics, and living out our core values. You’ve got big things to do. We are here to help you do them. 

Dream big about your future.


Our Success Staff is here to help you realize all of the opportunities that Catawba has to offer you. Our services are designed to:

  • Prepare you for life
  • Help you reach your future goals
  • Provide you with tips and advice for staying on track academically
  • Create your unique student success plan
