Admissions



International Students

The College welcomes cultural and linguistic diversity, but has no English as a Second Language or other remedial programs for non- English-speaking foreign students. A “Guide for International Students” is available on the Admissions section of the Pomona College Website at www.pomona.edu and is available in hard copy by request. The application deadline for students studying outside the United States is Jan. 1 if submitted electronically. Candidates who have not studied in a school where English is the medium of instruction must submit official results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) directly from the Educational Testing Service or International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Financial aid for foreign students is limited, although every admitted student applying for financial aid at the time they submit their application will receive 100 percent of his or her demonstrated need. Foreign students who need financial aid may not apply for Early Decision or for transfer admission.

English Language Assessment

Students who have not attended a school where English is the medium of instruction must also submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with their application materials—in addition to SAT and SAT Subject Tests (where available). If providing TOEFL or IELTS results presents a hardship, please contact the Office of Admissions for possible alternatives.

The College will not use the results of the SAT English Language Placement Test or the Test of English as a Second Language.
