Claremont College Consortium California

Partnerships between colleges to benefit students

Claremont Consortium

The Claremont College Consortium California is a group of seven schools of higher education located in Claremont, California. The partnership includes five undergraduate colleges, and two graduate schools.

Unlike most other college consortiums, the Claremont College campuses are adjoining and within reasonable walking distance of one another. The purpose of the Claremont College Consortium is to provide the specialization, flexibility and personal attention commonly found in a small college, with the resources of a large university. These colleges have a tradition of being selective in their admittance and all are consistently ranked among the best schools in the United States.

Claremont College Consortium California-Graduate Schools

Claremont graduate University

Another member of the Claremont College Consortium is the Claremont Graduate University.

" CGU is like no other graduate-level university in the nation. Founded in 1925, Claremont Graduate University is an independent institution devoted entirely to graduate study.

"The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has classified CGU as a Comprehensive Doctoral/no medical or veterinary. On our 19-acre, tree-lined campus in Claremont, 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, our eight academic schools and one independent department award master's and doctoral degrees in 22 disciplines. Enrollment is limited and classes are small, so you receive the attention you need.

As a member of this consortium, a partnership of seven independent institutions, CGU is able to offer a greater breadth of faculty and campus resources than is typical of a university with 2,000 students. At CGU, students are encouraged to pursue personal academic interests and research agendas even when they transcend the boundaries between individual departments.
