New Student Registration Steps: Becoming CAA Cardinal College Student

Tours are giving exclusively online during the COVID times. Email Executive Director DeAnna Pursai Virtual tours are conducted throughout the week over Zoom.

Step 2: Complete the Online Registration Form

After the tour you will be sent the online Student Registration form and updated student/parent policies for reference. Please submit the form online when complete.

Step 3: Make an account set-up appointment:

The CAA Student Registrar will receive an electronic notice that the application was submitted. She will then reach out and schedule an online virtual Zoom appointment with the student and their conservator, or emergency contact to set-up an online account through the CAA website to register for classes and verify all pertinent information. The Student Registrar will teach you how to use the registration system and get your student registered into the classes of his/her choosing.
