Certificate of Advanced Study in Evaluation

Getting Started

We are accepting applications for spring 2015 admissions. However, demand for the program is high, so apply soon!  We strongly recommend submitting your application by January 15th, 2015.

Please note:

• The GRE is not required of certificate program applicants.
• Applicants are invited to request a waiver of the application fee to the program.
• CGU’s accreditation requires that all enrollees submit complete transcripts from previous programs, as well as letters of recommendation. Letters for certificate participants who have been practicing in the field for an extended period of time may be from professionals. It is preferable, though not required, to include one academic reference if possible.

All applicants must have earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university to qualify. Most participants have also earned a master’s degree as well.

Evaluation faculty will review these materials and contact the most qualified applicants to discuss a program of study once admission decisions have been made. For more information, please e-mail (john.lavelle@cgu.edu) or call 909-607-9016.
