The purpose of this website is to assist current and prospective international recruitment partners for Claremont Graduate University. On this site, you will find information on how to become a partner and resources we provide to support our partnerships.

Becoming a CGU Recruitment Partner
Claremont Graduate University adheres to the NAFSA Code of Ethics when recruiting international students. The university does not work with representatives on a commission basis in absence of a signed agreement. To apply as a new partner, please complete the online Recruitment Partner Application. You will need to enter the password CGU to access the application. Following submission, the university will take the steps in reviewing and considering the application for partnership. Upon approval, partners will be provided an agreement to sign that will indicate the terms of the contract and the flat rate commission available.

Application for Admission
The application for admission can be found via the CGU website and is required for a prospective student to be considered for admission. Every applicant must submit all required documents for the program to which he/she is applying. A list of requirements can be found by selecting the program on the Application Checklist page. We accept unofficial documents but require originals to be submitted after admission. Representatives are required to verify the authenticity of submitted materials.

International Scholars Program
The university has a direct entry score requirement of 95 on the TOEFL examination. Applicants who score between a 75 and 94 on the TOEFL can still be admitted to the university, but will be required to complete our International Scholars Program prior to beginning program coursework. Applicants from English-speaking countries or those who possess a university degree from an English-speaking institution may not be required to submit proficiency scores as part of the application.

The International Scholars Program (ISP) is specially designed for non-native English-speaking international students who are ready for graduate study. It prepares students for the rigors of graduate study through an integrated cluster of classes that refine language, research, and participation skills. ISP is not a typical “language program”: it is designed to help students succeed in graduate-level courses by teaching the practices and expectations of American academic and business culture.

For more information on the program, including IELTS score requirements, please visit the program webpage.
