Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Pomona College, founded in 1887, is a private, liberal arts college. It has an unusual mix of students - geographically, ethnically, economically - for a school of this academic quality and size. Balance among social and natural sciences and humanities is unusual too, and Pomona is one of the few National Liberal Arts colleges in the west. It is one of the Claremont Colleges, a group of five undergraduate colleges and two graduate schools, with adjoining campuses and shared facilities and services. Its 140-acre campus, with a Spanish-influenced architectural style, is located 35 miles east of Los Angeles.
