... Let only the eager, thoughtful, and reverent enter here.

Because the life of a great liberal arts college is created in large part by the students who live and learn there, we work to enroll those who will both contribute to and benefit from the extraordinary opportunities here.

First-Year Admissions

If you're a senior in high school or applying with less than one year's worth of college credit, you will be a first-year applicant. 

Transfer Admissions

If you've completed at least one year's worth of college credit by the time of your potential enrollment at Pomona, you will be a transfer applicant. 

Diversity and Access

Diversity is crucial to Pomona's educational mission. It's that simple. From our strategic and institutional initiatives, to our need-based and 100%-needs-met financial aid policies, to our no-hassle fee waiver policy, and our commitments to enrolling and supporting undocumented students and veterans of the armed forces, we continually strive to promote access to a Pomona education.

Visit Pomona–Virtually

While travel is restricted and our campus is closed to visitors, we offer many ways for prospective students and families to learn more and connect with the Pomona community. Live info sessions, Q&A events, chats with admissions or current students, webinars, and live-narrated tours are just a sample. We'd love to meet you in Virtual Land!
