Admissions



Campus Visits and Interviews

The College welcomes visitors and strongly encourages students and parents to visit the campus. Tours and information sessions are offered every day the Office of Admissions is open. Members of the Pomona College Admissions staff conduct group information sessions for interested students and parents. The approximately one-hour-long sessions offer an overview of the College and its programs, followed by an informal question-and-answer period. Student-led tours of the Pomona College campus last about an hour and are typically available when the Office of Admissions is open. Prospective students who visit while the College is in session may be able to attend a class and can sign up to do so in the Office of Admissions. The widest selection of classes is available in the morning, and relatively few classes are scheduled for Friday afternoon. Most classes range from 50 to 90 minutes in length. Students interested in music are encouraged to contact the Music Department to arrange a visit to a rehearsal or class.

Prospective students who are in their senior year of high school and transfer student applicants may arrange to stay overnight in a residence hall as the guest of a current student. Visitors will be provided a visitor’s ID and meal passes for the dining halls, along with cots and linens. Visitors may also accompany their hosts to classes. Requests for overnight stays must be made at least two weeks in advance and are arranged only for October and November. No overnight stays are scheduled during school breaks. In April, overnight visits are reserved for admitted students.

We do not offer on-campus interviews, but interested students may submit an online request, beginning in late August, for an alumni interview in their area.
