Diocese of Arlington

Welcome to CDU

CDU is partnering with the Diocese of Arlington to provide high quality online programs and courses in adult faith formation.  The online option from CDU gives each person in the diocese the opportunity to study the Catholic Faith alone or with a group using a convenient, flexible, and adult-friendly format.  Members are also invited to work towards receiving one of CDU's noncredit certificates. The courses and seminars required for each of the noncredit Certificates provide a systematic way to grow in knowledge of the Catholic Faith. Click below to learn more about these. As a subsidy partner you can take the required seminars and courses at a discounted tuition rate.
