A Message for Victims of Recent Natural Disasters

Recent hurricanes and fires, as well as earthquakes in Mexico, have had a destructive impact on so many. The Pomona community has reacted with sadness and concern. The Office of Admissions extends its sympathies to those affected and offers support in the application process to those suffering through this uncertain time.

To support you in the application process, the Office of Admissions offers the following assistance:

  1. If you need an extension for the Nov. 1 Early Decision I deadline, please email admissions@pomona.edu with the request.
  2. If paying the application fee presents a financial hardship for you or your family, please request a fee waiver, consistent with our policies. Please request the “Pomona-specific fee waiver” on the Common Application, and we will automatically grant the waiver to domestic or international students.
  3. We will grant extensions to teachers and counselors for submission of the school profile, letters of recommendation, official transcripts and other materials. If an extension is needed beyond the Nov. 1 deadline, please email admissions@pomona.edu with your request.
  4. If you had difficulty taking a standardized test this fall due to a natural disaster, please notify us at admissions@pomona.edu so that we can assist you.

If you have any other questions about the admissions or financial aid application processes, or if we can assist you in any other way, please contact us at admissions@pomona.edu or call at (909) 621-8134 (Office of Admissions), or contact the Office of Financial Aid at (909) 621-8205 or financial.aid@pomona.edu.
