About Pomona College

Founded over 120 years ago, Pomona College was established to provide the kind of education one might receive in an East Coast private college like Williams or Dartmouth. Pomona still carries that tradition today, with an exceptionally low student-to-faculty ratio and small average class size.

Pomona College’s academics reflect its high standard of excellence, with more than 45 majors available. As a liberal arts college, Pomona only offers undergraduate academics. This means that the college is focused exclusively on your education, rather than graduate programs and research.

Tuition at Pomona is high, but the school offers several financial aid opportunities to help meet eligible students’ needs. The college recently replaced loans with need-based scholarships in its financial aid packages.

Due to its prime location, college life at Pomona is diverse and exciting. The school is less than an hour away from the ocean, the Mojave Desert and Los Angeles. Whether you’re looking for an adventure in the wilderness or entertainment in the city, Pomona College offers plenty of options.

Amazing professors teaching small, interesting classes. Twenty years after graduating, the friends I made at Pomona are still my closest friends. Beautiful, spacious campus with gorgeous landscaping, a state-of-the-art athletic center, and interesting architecture.
