Exams and Admission

The Cal Poly Pomona LSAMP program has financial resources dedicated to improving LSAMP student competitiveness for admission to graduate school. The following opportunities are designed to attract, expose and support our students so that they are better prepared to gain admission in to graduate school.

  • LSAMP will pay for the GRE examination 
  • LSAMP will pay for graduate school application fees for graduating seniors.

Travel funds

Students in the program have access to funds so that they can travel to conferences and present their research at local and national meetings.

LSAMP sends students to the Southern California Forum for Diversity on Graduate Education.
