Pomona College goes Permanently TO

Here's some good news in the college admission world amid an increasingly confusing standardized testing landscape. Pomona College, one of the Claremont Colleges in Southern California, is going permanently test-optional.

As a college that is widely considered one of the strongest all-around liberal arts colleges in the country, and a top school for social mobility of graduates, with a mega-selective 7% admit rate from around 12,000 annual applicants, this is an impactful move, setting the stage for other similar institutions to follow.


Congratulations to Pomona's faculty, administration and admission team for making this powerful statement.
