"The Teacher Education Cohort at CGU does NOT measure up to any value at all. The Coordinators of this high priced program were very disorganized. The model is out of touch with 21st century issues. The program is back in the 1960's. It costs too much"

"Not worth the cost! Middle class families will be in deep debt entering a Teacher Education program! Coordinators have NO clue how to create a vibrant program in today's market."

"What a waste! This program is overpriced. Not worth it. Extremely poor coordination. Financial assistance is in student loans only. Only the wealthiest can attend and those with complete scholarships and grants. For the majority of American college students, forget it."

"Big mistake attending! This school is using a 1960's model to a 21st Century era! It cost too much. Made a big mistake. The Teacher's program is living off an old model. Coordinator is awful. This is definitely NOT worth the cost of a teacher education program!!!!!"

"Can't believe how expensive this school is with an awful teacher certification program! Not worth the price at all! Would not invest one dime in this out dated program. The President and Vice Provost of the school are totally clueless to the value or lack thereof of the Teacher Education Department protection given to a student teacher thrust into the chaotic world of public education. A student admitted into the Teacher Education program is better off as a cast member in the movie Hunger Games. School is living off its brand name!"

"Most disappointing! The CGU Teacher Education Induction program for such an elite private school is a shame! It has a lot to do with those who are coordinating the program at this time. Terribly overpriced and the return value is zilch!!!"

"CGU Teacher Education Internship is overpriced! The name brand does not correspond with quality outcome. The coordinators lack transparency, honesty and integrity. Past performance does not constitute future success. CGU Teacher Education is currently operating under an old "gatekeeper" approach to educational institutions. It has basically lost its "first love" and has become what is most wrong with elite colleges that are merely living off of their brand name. Check the stats carefully, ask prior students specifically and judge for yourself!"

"Claremont was my dream school and so far it has lived up to all of my expectations. The faculty and staff have been extraordinarily helpful each step of the way. The graduate campus is small and easily accessible. Considering that it is graduate school where you are expected to be totally independent, there is a great deal of assistance for you particularly with regard to writing. The Claremont Writing Center has to be unique as it extends a great deal of support to advanced writers in the graduate fields of study. With regard to my program in education, I have now gotten over the initial shock of the 16 page syllabus. It has taken some organization skills to make sure that all the assignments due are on time but I have gotten used to the pace."

"While teacher candidates are exposed to an abundance of information, particularly as it pertains to english language learners and special education student, teacher candidates are left to figure out on their own teacher basics such as lesson planning and classroom management strategies. I constantly felt like I was struggling and was not a fully supported to be an effective teacher. It doesn't help when the administrators and advisors aid their "favorite" students."
