You may also schedule on-campus interviews online.

The best way to gain a true appreciation for the qualities and opportunities that make this college unique is through a campus visit. We are always pleased to meet students and learn about their interests, and we welcome you to meet our students, visit our classes, and see the community here for yourself. The Pomona College Office of Admissions is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. throughout the year.

The office is also open Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. from late September through early December, except Thanksgiving weekend.

If you are traveling long distances to visit us, it may be advisable to to confirm Office of Admissions hours and availability.

Visitors are welcome at any time of the year, although visiting when classes are in session will provide the most accurate view of campus life. We recommend avoiding the periods immediately before or after a break, and before or during final exams. We encourage visitors to allow a minimum of two hours for a tour and information session and additional time for an interview and to visit classes.

Please make arrangements for interviews at least three weeks in advance; in particular, Saturday and holiday interview appointments fill quickly, as do appointments in December, as deadlines approach. Requests to stay overnight in a residence hall should be made two weeks in advance, and will be honored only for high school seniors and transfer applicants.

Members of the Pomona College Admissions staff conduct group information sessions daily for interested students and parents. The sessions offer an overview of the College and its programs, followed by an informal question-and-answer period. Please see the schedule above for times, which vary at different points in the year.
