Claremont Graduate University is happy to provide tuition benefits to employees of The Claremont Colleges. In addition to the benefits provided by CGU, some of the following organizations offer tuition assistance to their employees who enroll at CGU. We encourage employees to contact their respective Human Resources office for eligibility information.

The above benefits are available to those accepted into a degree program at CGU and require annual employment verification. To submit employment verification, please contact the Office of Admissions.

Affiliate Fee Waivers
Students, staff, and alumni of The Claremont Colleges may receive an application fee waiver upon request.

Applicants should submit a request for a fee waiver to with proper documentation. Waiver requests will be reviewed by the Office of Admissions and response notification will be sent within 10 business days.

CGU will not issue a refund to any applicant who fails to secure a fee waiver prior to submitting the application and paying the required fee.

*Tuition benefit discounts are applied in the form of institutional fellowship. Applicants will also be considered for departmental awards and in the case where they are offered a departmental fellowship and are eligible for an employment discount they will be awarded the greater award amount, not both. If employees are receiving full sponsorship from their employer, they will not be eligible for the additional discount through CGU. If the employer provides a partial sponsorship, then the student may still be eligible for a CGU discount.
