A Commitment to Need-Based Financial Aid
With Pomona’s generous program of financial aid, no student should hesitate to apply because of cost. One of a handful of institutions committed to both need-blind admissions and fully funded, need-based financial aid, Pomona College meets 100 percent of the demonstrated need of every student admitted, with more than half of our students receiving financial aid.
For the 2011-2012 award year, Pomona College distributed more than $29.8 million in scholarship and grant assistance to Pomona students receiving financial aid. The College strives to provide a consistent level of financial aid funding for all four years, as long as a family’s finances remain the same.
In order to be eligible for any financial aid awarded by the College and by most federal, state, and major private aid programs, students and parents are required to file a confidential financial statement on which a determination of financial aid eligibility can be based. All Pomona College aid candidates must also apply for any state or federal awards for which they may be eligible so that College funds can be made available to as many students as possible.
In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) as amended and enacted by Congress and signed into law by the President in August 2008, which reauthorized the Higher Education Act of 1965, the Office of Financial Aid has formalized and adopted a code of conduct which guides our adherence to ethical standards and compliance with the laws and regulations that govern financial aid operations. Interested parties may access the Pomona College Financial Aid Code of Conduct here [pdf] .
