Pomona College has plans to enroll up to 10 qualified undergraduate students from Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria. Pomona College will waive the accepted students’ tuition and fees, as well as room and board charges, for the Spring 2018 semester.

Undergraduates currently enrolled in an accredited college or university in Puerto Rico are eligible to apply. Those accepted will be able to enroll at Pomona for the upcoming spring semester, enabling them to continue their progress toward a bachelor’s degree at their home institution in Puerto Rico.

Application materials and more information are available online, and the deadline is Dec. 11, 2017.

All students will be notified of their admission decision Dec. 21, 2017. Spring semester at Pomona begins Jan. 16, 2018.

For more information, students from Puerto Rico should contact Adam Sapp, director of admissions, at adam.sapp@pomona.edu.
