The Office of Admissions hosts live monthly webinars on a variety of topics, from information sessions for prospective students, to financial aid and application tips.
Webinars are online sessions that students, parents, counselors or educators can log in to at a pre-designated time. Friendly admissions and financial aid officers, as well as current Pomona students, use video sharing to present information on a scheduled topic, always with a Q&A period at the end. Recordings will be made available here once the sessions are complete.
