I am a CGU or KGI student. Can I be seen at SHS or MCAPS?

2024-02-06T13:54:49-08:00

CGU and KGI students will no longer be eligible to receive in-person services at Student Health Services (SHS) or the Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services (MCAPS) after the end of the 2022-2023 academic year. This action is because the institutions will no longer contract with The Claremont Colleges Services to offer in-person services at SHS and MCAPS. The staff at SHS and MCAPS have truly valued the opportunity to serve graduate students at The Claremont Colleges, and we would like to express our sincere wish for every student's success and well-being in the time ahead.
