Claremont Graduate University Reviews
A lot of people complain that the school is expensive, which is true for its PhD program. Most PhD programs fund their students but CGU doesn't seem to have that luxury. However, as a Masters student who does get some funding, I have no complaints because I know how rare it is to find a school that funds Masters students. That aside, I've explored all the resources available to this school and I really like what CGU offers. They try to do a lot with student diversity, health, and academic help (e.g. Writing Center, digital services, library services, etc.) and I've found the workshops they had on career development to be very helpful. I think that if one utilizes those resources, the school isn't what everyone calls "overpriced." However, some of their resources are still being developed, such as the fellowship office so perhaps that's why people had/have complaints. Since it's a smaller school, the people (not only professors and advisers, but admin as well) are willing to help you out when you need it. I'm finding myself to have an incredibly positive experience so far with CGU.
I have some support on campus which helps navigate my program. I enjoy the subject matter in class. Class discussion can be engaging if everyone has read.
Claremont Graduate University gives you very little compared to what they charge in tuition and many of the administrators see students as inferior. The school of community and global health at CGU is fantastic, but the university as a whole is too expensive, and not student oriented.
