Important Admissions Disclosures
Accuracy of Submissions: Applicants are required to sign a statement at the end of the application form certifying the accuracy of the information submitted. Any misrepresentation may be cause for denial of admission. If misrepresentation is discovered after admission, dismissal from CGU and revoking of any degree granted may result.
Use of Applicant Documentation: All records submitted to the Office of Admissions at CGU become part of a candidate’s official file and can neither be returned nor duplicated for any purpose. It is recommended that candidates obtain copies of their official credentials to keep in their possession. No copies will be provided to third parties outside the University even if the applicant requests this release. Copies will be provided to appropriate offices at the University, however, in the interest of academic matters or financial awards relative to the applicant. Applications and supporting documents are retained according to the retention policies of CGU.
Retention of Applicant Documents: Admissions retains and destroys after 18 months all application materials received from applicants who did not register for courses after admission, who were denied admission, who did not respond to CGU’s offer of admission, and whose application files were never completed.
