The cost of attendance is what the college estimates it will cost to attend Pomona for one year. Included in the cost of attendance are direct costs for tuition, fees, room and board for students living on campus, and indirect cost estimates for books, supplies, personal expenses, and transportation.

Students that live off campus are not billed directly for room and meal plan charges. Instead, the cost of attendance for financial aid is based on average expenses for off campus living. The average is determined from surveying students living off campus to determine the average amount that is spent on living expenses, along with data from housing surveys for students in California and across the US.

* Medical Insurance may be waived if student can verify they are already covered by comparable coverage as determined by the Dean of Students Office.
