A Commitment to Need-Based Financial Aid
Pomona College is one of a handful of institutions which practice need-blind admissions and provide need-based financial aid. Pomona meets 100 percent of the demonstrated need of every student admitted, with more than half of our students receiving financial aid.
In the 2012-2013 award year, Pomona College distributed more than $30.7 million in the form of need-based institutional grant aid. Total scholarships and grants from all sources - federal, state, and private - was approximately $34.3 million.
In order to be eligible for any financial aid awarded by the College and by most federal, state, and major private aid programs, students and parents are required to file a confidential financial statement on which a determination of financial aid eligibility can be based. All Pomona College aid candidates must also apply for any state or federal awards for which they may be eligible so that College funds can be made available to as many students as possible.
While Pomona continues to not include loans as part of the financial aid package, many families and students choose to borrow to finance the expected family contribution. The average loan indebtedness of students graduating in 2012 is $15,714.
In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) as amended and enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President in August 2008, which reauthorized the Higher Education Act of 1965, the Office of Financial Aid has formalized and adopted a code of conduct which guides our adherence to ethical standards and compliance with the laws and regulations that govern financial aid operations. Interested parties may access the Pomona College Financial Aid Code of Conduct here [pdf] .
