Frequently Asked Questions

Admissions FAQ

CGU's master's degree programs are designed to be completed in 1-1.5 years full time and 1.5-3 years part time. Time to completion will vary based on program and units taken per term.

Applicants who apply by the priority deadline are among the first reviewed for admission and considered for fellowship funding (CGU scholarships). Registration for classes opens early so we encourage applicants to submit their applications by the priority deadline.

You can learn more about the application process and requirements here.  Applicants must have either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS). While either a BA or a BS is a minimum requirement, it is recommended that you speak first with our enrollment team about your academic and professional background to ensure a competitive application as well as to discuss any program specific admissions requirements.
