Local Area Admissions

Applicants who apply to non-impacted majors and are from local area community colleges (Mt. Sac and Citrus College) who meet the minimum CSU eligibility requirements will be admitted. You are considered a local area student if the majority of your units come from the local area community college.

Cal Poly Pomona is impacted by major:

Applicants transferring from local area colleges are required to meet the minimum CSU eligibility requirements only; 60 semester (90 quarter) units, "Golden Four," and a minimum GPA of 2.0.  Transfer applicants applying to an impacted major will receive "Local Preference" for admission consideration based on our local area designation.
