Key Dates and Deadlines

CGU operates on a priority deadline cycle. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit complete applications by the priority dates in order to assure maximum consideration for both admission and fellowships.

Once the priority deadlines have passed, the University will continue to review applications for qualified candidates on a competitive, space-available basis. The final deadlines listed are the last date the University can accept an application in order to allow sufficient time to complete the admissions, financial aid, and other enrollment processes.


Fall 2022
Priority Deadline February 1, 2022
Final Deadline July 5, 2022
(International applicants)

New Urban Leadership (UL) cohorts start every other fall. The next UL cohort begins Fall 2022. With special permission from the Director of Urban Leadership, students can apply/enroll earlier and start on their elective classes, but UL cohort classes will not start until Fall 2022.
