CGU will implement a phased return to campus beginning in summer 2021, leading to a full return by fall 2021. This was communicated in an email from the Office of the President: CGU Return to Campus Update (5/6/21). Students should note that some classes will continue to operate remotely in the fall term and should check the class schedule for details. More information will be available soon as we update the return to campus policies and procedures.
