Prospective Parents

Welcome, parents and guardians!

To help you through the college search process, including visiting, applying, and enrolling, here’s a step-by-step guide, based on where you may be in the college journey:

We are just starting out, and we’re interested in learning more about Cabrini University.

First, congratulations on this upcoming milestone in you and your student’s lives!

Cabrini University is a four-year private institution located on a tree-lined campus in Radnor, PA, which is a suburb of Philadelphia. We are an inclusive, co-educational Catholic community that supports students in their life journey and empowers them to become advocates of social change. Through our curriculum, students develop leadership skills and bigger-picture awareness to bring about change in their professional and personal lives.

Check out our Quick Facts page

Next steps: Request more information about Cabrini (this will sign you up for emails directed to parents of prospective Cabrini students). Your student can request more information here (we strongly encourage students to complete this form for the most up-to-date information about Cabrini).

Visiting Cabrini will provide helpful insight into the feel of our campus. Typically, students first visit our campus when they are high school sophomores or juniors, but it’s never too early or too late to visit. You’ll be able to talk to an admissions counselor and a current student during your campus tour. Schedule a visit at cabrini.edu/visit.

Can’t make it to campus? Speak directly to someone in our Admissions Office by calling 800.848.1003 or 610.902.8552 or by emailing admit@cabrini.edu.


We decided that we love Cabrini!

We are ready to commit to Cabrini University. Now what?
