Financial Aid

A Commitment to Need-Based Financial Aid

Pomona College is one of a handful of institutions committed to need-blind admissions and meeting the full demonstrated financial need of all students who enroll. 

The Basics

  • A student's financial need is determined after a careful review of each family's financial documents. We do our best to take into account each family's unique circumstances.
  • For eligible students, the Offer of Financial Aid is composed of grant aid and a modest student employment allotment. While loans are available, Pomona does not use loans to meet a student's financial need.
