National Catholic Register Catholic Identity College Guide

Published annually in September, the National Catholic Register's College Guide is the Catholic student's resource for finding a quality Catholic education that is faithful to the Magisterium of the Church.

The schools listed in the guide have gone on record in answer to our questionnaire, based on Pope John Paul II’s 1990 apostolic constitution on higher education, Ex Corde Ecclesiae (From the Heart of the Church), its 2000 Application to the United States, canon law, and other Church documents.

Inclusion in the College Guide is free, and open to all Catholic colleges and universities able to complete our application and questionnaire.

Acceptance in the College Guide also qualifies you for a listing in NCRegister's online College Guide.

View the 2020 College Guide, published in our September 13, 2020 issue.

Colleges interested in being included in this Guide are encouraged to download and submit our application form here.
