Admission Requirements for Veterans

The California State University system and specifically Cal Poly Pomona have given highest priority for admission and enrollment to veterans in recognition of their service to the country.

Admission requirements

Admission requirements and deadlines are based on whether you are applying as a first-time freshman, undergraduate transfer, graduate or credential student. Go to Admissions and review the material applicable to your level of study.

Recognizing that veterans may not be able to meet the standard admission application filing deadlines and/or mandatory orientation requirements due to service or travel limitations, Cal Poly Pomona offers veterans additional flexibility throughout the admissions, orientation and registration processes if needed. Admission applications from veterans are given priority consideration and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis since every veteran’s academic and military experience may be different.

If you have difficulty completing the admission process within the admission application period, contact Elke Azpeitia, our veterans services coordinator, in the Veterans Resource Center at (909) 869-6994 to discuss possible alternatives.

Pre-admission advising

We recommend that you set up a pre-advising appointment with a veterans admission counselor in the Office of Admissions & Outreach early in the admission process to help facilitate your admission and enrollment at Cal Poly Pomona. You may contact either of our veterans admission counselors by phone or email or by scheduling an appointment at (909) 869-5299.
