Just 35 miles east of Los Angeles, Claremont Graduate University offers an intimate, high-touch academic research environment. Our unique brand of graduate-only scholarship transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries to foster the creation of new knowledge—and new ways of seeing and improving the world.

Globally recognized faculty-scholars lead our specialized programs, which may be tailored to your specific interests and career aspirations. You’ll receive practice-based training and individual mentorship that prepares you for successful employment and enables you to effect positive social change. Due to global health circumstances, we are planning to conduct most fall semester (2020) classes through virtual learning. We look forward to a return to campus in the future and seeing you in Claremont—a vibrant location that offers year-round sunshine and an array of dining, entertainment, and outdoor activities.


Statement on Fall 2020 Instruction

Claremont Graduate University’s fall term begins on Monday, Aug. 31. Classes during the fall semester will be conducted fully online except for a limited number of labs, studios, practica, one-on-one tutorials, and research studies that require hands-on work and physical access to campus spaces. On-campus activity is subject to CGU approval and to CDC, state, and county health and safety guidance.

Classes have been designed around 1-hour 50-minute blocks to limit virtual fatigue and to increase flexibility. Students can find out more about how their individual classes will meet by checking them on the CGU Class Schedule.

CGU looks forward to welcoming you into our fall 2020 class.

For more information, visit CGU’s Fall 2020 information page for students, or contact the admissions office, 909-607-7811.
