Freshman Student Profile

Multifactor Admission

Cal Poly Pomona uses a multifactor admissions (MFA) model to create a Cal Poly Pomona eligibility index (CPP Index) for an applicant’s desired major. This admission model considers an applicant’s "A-G" GPA along with other non-academic attributes (click "MFA Model" to view) and excludes SAT/ACT scores to determine an applicant’s admissibility. Prospective students can view CPP's minimum indexes for admissions for the Fall 2021 application cycle below.
