2019-20 Pomona College Catalog


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. An International Applicant FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) webpage is available in the Admissions section of the Pomona College website. Additionally, a hard copy of our international student information sheet is available by request. The application deadlines are the same for students studying inside and outside the United States. 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 their demonstrated need. International students who need financial aid may apply for transfer admission.

English Language Assessment

Students who have not attended a school where English is the primary language of instruction must submit official or self-reported results from either the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with their application materials—in addition to self-reported SAT and SAT Subject Tests (where available). If providing TOEFL or IELTS scores 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 as placement exams.
