Before you apply, we recommend that you carefully review the Cal Poly Pomona out-of-state freshmen admissions requirements to be considered. Selection to all Cal Poly Pomona is competitive as we have more qualified applicants than we can admit. Cal Poly Pomona will consider you for admissions to your alternate major if space is available and cannot guarantee consideration for your alternate major/program. We prioritize applicants within the same academic college. Students who have been admitted should review the Next Steps Checklist
