What is a Non-Pomona Program?
Non-Pomona Programs are study abroad programs that have not been pre-approved by the SAC. These programs are available to students whose academic needs are not met by the existing slate of Pomona Programs. In order to apply for a Non-Pomona Program, students must first petition the SAC for approval. Pomona normally requires a 10.0 GPA minimum for Non-Pomona Programs. Any student below a 10.0 GPA must present persuasive reasons why this policy should be waived. Students below a 9.0 GPA may not apply for a Non-Pomona Program. Additionally, students should complete the appropriate college-level language study in preparation for the proposed program, if that language is taught at The Claremont Colleges. Students are expected to complete a content course related to the study abroad destination.
All Pomona College study abroad policies and procedures outlined in this guide apply to students who participate in Non-Pomona Programs, except as noted.
