For Families: Virtual Sessions & Personal Connections

Frankly, we’re thrilled your student is considering Pomona College, and we’re eager to support your student to navigate the admissions process. We understand how challenging the college search, application and decision processes can be. If we can be of assistance along the way, please feel welcome to contact us at admissions@pomona.edu. You can also connect with your student’s particular admissions officer by email, or sign up for an individual chat.

Parents, guardians and family members are warmly invited to attend our virtual information sessions, Q&A events, and webinars with their students. We would also love to welcome you to campus for a visit: you may register for an information session, a student-led campus tour or use our online self-guided tour to explore on your own. Or tune in to the Sagecast podcast series: Backstories of alumni like tech entrepreneur Shadiah Sigala ’06 or faculty like Grammy-nominated Music Professor Genevieve Lee; Mentorship Stories like those of Quantitative Skills Center Director Travis Brown and Pomona Scholar of Science Nicah Vhin Driza ’20; or Student Experiences like those of gap-year students Danny DeBare ’22 and Sophie Schnell ’22.

We realize the cost of college is a driving factor for many families as they embark on a college search. We are proud to be need-blind through the admissions process for all applicants who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents and/or who graduate from U.S. high schools, regardless of nationality or citizenship status. We meet 100% of students’ demonstrated financial need, and we do not include loans in our financial aid packages. In 2019-20, 55% of our students received need-based financial aid, with the average aid package totaling $58,528. To estimate your student’s eligibility for need-based aid from Pomona College, use the online tools MyinTuition or the Net Price Calculator.
