Perspectives on Pomona (POP!) 

September 30 – October 3, 2017

October 7 - 10, 2017*

Application deadline for both programs:

August 20, 2017 

*Please note Saturday, October 7 is an SAT test date.

The Perspectives on Pomona (POP!) fall fly-in program welcomes students from diverse backgrounds who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education to experience the Pomona College campus.

During POP! prospective students will have the opportunity to meet current students, speak with faculty and explore the Pomona College community. Although space is limited due to the small size of our engaged community, we are dedicated to providing this opportunity to those whom the program will most benefit.

All POP! participants are provided with on-campus housing, meals and shuttle transportation between local airports and Pomona College. Limited travel grants are available to cover airfare expenses.

The application for the 2017 POP! programs is now closed.
