CGU Spring Preview 2020

    Claremont Graduate University hosts an annual Spring Preview event for prospective students to sit in on a sample class session, explore our beautiful campus, and network with our faculty, staff, and students. Students are able sit in on preview classes taught by CGU faculty as well as gain insight from admissions representatives about the next steps in their graduate career.

    Due to current circumstances, CGU hosted Spring Preview virtually this year, providing many of the same opportunities - online!

    We hope you will take the time to watch our graduate service presentations and our class preview sessions to gain valuable insight into the graduate school experience. You will be able to hear from our engaging faculty and staff and learn more about all of the opportunities provided to students at CGU.
