Local Area Admissions

Applicants who apply to non-impacted majors who meet the minimum CSU eligibility requirements will be admitted.

Cal Poly Pomona is impacted by major:

Transfer applications applying to an impacted major will receive "Local Preference" for admission consideration if the majority of their units are coming from one of our local area schools. As a campus, Cal Poly Pomona provides additional consideration to ensure a local area admission preference. In addition, as a part of our commitment to provide access to veterans, Cal Poly Pomona gives "Local Preference" to all veterans regardless of transferring institution. Due to the discontinuation of “Campus Impaction,” Cal Poly Pomona will offer additional consideration to our “service area (PDF)” schools, Chaffey College and Rio Hondo College.
