Apply online via Cal State Apply

Before you apply, we recommend that you carefully review the international freshmen, transfer or graduate admission requirements. Selection to all Cal Poly Pomona programs is competitive as we have more qualified applicants than we can admit.

International Freshmen and Transfer Application Checklist

All international applicants must declare a major at the time of application. Visit our University Catalog to explore undergraduate majors.  

Undergraduate applicants (freshmen and transfer) – If you have attended school in the U.S., you will be asked to enter your U.S. coursework on your Cal State Apply application. If you attended school outside of the U.S., you will not need to enter your coursework. However, you will be asked to mail a copy of such international transcripts so that we may assess your academic profile.

Applicants are encouraged to review the following helpful resources when completing the Cal State Apply application.

Apply online October 1 through December 4, via Cal State Apply

Cal Poly Pomona makes admission decisions based on self-reported information from the application! Provisionally admitted students who intend to enroll at Cal Poly Pomona will be required to submit an official transcript to verify eligibility and high school graduation.

Note: The application is open for non-impacted majors from institutions outside of the US through March 1, 2021.

A $70 non-refundable application filing fee must be paid at the time of application submission. Instructions for payment can be found on Cal State Apply.
