List of alumni of the Pontifical North American College

The Janiculum campus of the Pontifical North American College, as seen from the dome of St. Peter's Basilica in June 2014.

This is a partial list of notable alumni of the Pontifical North American College in Rome, a Roman Catholic educational institution that forms and educates seminarians and student priests for dioceses in the United States (as well as Canada and Australia). It was founded in 1859.

If the prelates and priests listed here completed their normal course of pre-ordination theology studies while at the North American College (in general, the bachelor and licentiate), only their year of ordination is given; if they were sent to the College for graduate studies or continuing education after ordination, then that graduate degree or program is listed.
