Message from Pomona College

We honor our Servicemembers, Spouses, and Dependents!  Pomona actively seeks to enroll qualified individuals who have served (along with their family member who have served alongside) in the United States Armed Forces.

We believe veterans and their families contribute valuable life experiences and varied perspectives to our classrooms and community. A proud member of the Yellow Ribbon Program through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, Pomona College also commits to meeting the full demonstrated financial need of all applicants, making a Pomona education accessible to eligible veterans, regardless of financial means. The College also offers an application fee waiver to any veteran or active-duty service member applying to Pomona. 

Pomona College Overview

As the founding member of The Claremont Colleges, a unique consortium of seven independent institutions (two graduate and five undergraduate) on adjoining campuses, Pomona offers its students the personal experience of a small, academically superb liberal arts  college and the breadth of resources normally associated with major universities.

With the ability to cross-register for classes at the other Claremont Colleges, Pomona students have 2,700 course options, as well as major shared resources such as a 2-million-volume library, seven dining halls, religious life center, recruiting events and multiple student resource centers.

Pomona’s approximately 1,600 students engage in a comprehensive curriculum in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences, with 48 majors, a 3/2 engineering program, and pre-professional advising in law and health/medicine.

With a student-faculty ratio of 8 to 1, and average class size of 15, students have the opportunity to work closely and collaboratively with professors who are both committed teachers and top scholars in their fields.

As a fully undergraduate college, moreover, Pomona offers research and internship opportunities on and off-campus to all students, with funding available for these professional experiences. Nearly 60% of students conduct research with faculty, while 84% complete an internship prior to graduation.

The Pomona College Community

The extraordinary ethnic and social diversity of its student body gives Pomona a broader mix of backgrounds than just about any comparable educational institution.

Half of the student body identify as domestic students of color, while international students make up 11% of the student body. This rich diversity lends itself to wide-ranging programming (speakers, events, course topics) and vital discussions inside and outside of our classrooms, preparing our students to engage with a range of individuals and communities in their futures.
