Apply for the Four Year Graduation Pledge

A Commitment to Education

Graduating in four years is often a top priority of both students and families as they make decisions about a college education. The Cal Poly Pomona Four-Year Graduation Pledge Program is designed to guarantee graduation within four years for freshmen entering the University. The pledge program involves a promise by students to balance school, work and personal responsibilities so that their commitment to education is honored. The University, in turn, provides an effective and coordinated advising program and facilitates registration in appropriate course work. Our pledge program is based on the philosophy that if both the University and the student uphold their commitment, graduation in four years should be guaranteed.
