Alumni Registering For Classes

Definition of Alumni

For the purposes of this policy, alumni are CGU students who have earned a CGU degree and are not currently enrolled in a degree program at CGU.

Participants in degree programs at CGU are considered current students regardless if the student has earned a previous degree from CGU.  For these individuals, continuing student policies and procedures apply.

Individuals who previously attended CGU, but did not receive a degree, are not considered alumni for the purpose of this policy.  These individuals may enroll in summer courses as a Summer Visitor or must petition for readmission as a CGU student.  If the last semester of enrollment for the former student was five or more years, an application through Admissions is required.  Tuition and fees for the semester of enrollent apply for all enrolled and visiting students.


Enrollment in Courses

Enrollment in courses must be completed before the Add/Drop deadline for regular session announced in the Academic Calendar for the semester of interest.

  1. Download and complete the Alumni Registration Form.
  2. Permission of the instructor is required for the alum to enroll in any course, whether on a graded or audit basis.
  3. The alum's signature is required on the registration form.
  4. The completed form is submitted to the department.  Upon approval, the form is sent to the Registrar's Office for processing.
  5. Payment of fees is made to Student Accounts.

Alumni who plan on enrolling in more than 12 units or three courses should consider returning to CGU as a student in a new degree program.  Refer to CGU instructions regarding readmission.  However, if more than five years have elapsed since the alum's last semester of enrollment, an application through Admissions is required.


Tuition and Fees

Applicable tuition and fees are available from the Tuition & Fees table on the Student Accounts website.  The following provisions apply to alumni who meet the definition above.

  • A 50% discount off the current per unit rate applies, provided the total number of enrolled units in the semester is less than 12.
  • No discount applies to enrollment in 12 or more units.
  • The CGU Student Fee/Technology Fee is required during each semester of enrollment.

Refunds, if any, are based upon Add/Drop deadlines and the Financial Calendar under which Student Accounts operates.

NOTE: Per federal requirements, financial aid is NOT available to alumni and students in non-degree programs, such as Certificate programs.


Transcript Records

The CGU transcript is an official record of an individual's enrollment at the University.

When an alum is enrolled for courses in a new term, the term is created on the student's transcript and the course or courses recorded, similar to other CGU courses taken by the student.  All grades received are factored into the student's GPA.

If the alum is subsequently admitted as a student, courses taken as an alum may be counted toward the student's degree program if applicable to the discipline or field of the degree.
