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 PDF of our international student information sheet is available by request. The application deadlines are the same for students studying in 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% of their demonstrated need. In the past few years, 40-45% of incoming international students have received need-based financial aid. 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 the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with their application materials. 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 Test of English as a Second Language (TOEFL) or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) as a placement exam.
