New Student Guide

The New Student Guide is about learning and thriving at Pomona. It is organized into two sections: 

  • Academic Life: This includes placement exams, Breadth of Study (general ed) requirements for graduation, and how to register for classes. Your faculty advisor will also assist you with this process.
  • Office of Accessibility Services: This section will inform you about how to register for accommodations and the documentation required to complete your request.

As you get ready to come to campus here is a list of items that you will need to bring to campus as well as some additional suggestions. If you have additional questions, please email

For information on things you need to do before classes start, visit our To-Do List. For information about orientation activities, please visit our Orientation section.
