The Claremont Colleges Information Sessions

The Claremont Colleges -- Claremont McKennaHarvey MuddPitzerPomona, and Scripps Colleges -- are united by a unique spirit of collaboration and connectivity that influences every part of academics, athletics, and student life. The “5Cs” are literally located across the street from one another, so students can attend a small, tightly-focused college even as they enjoy the benefits of a bigger, multi-faceted campus.

We invite you to attend our upcoming virtual programs for prospective students, their families, and counselors to learn more about our shared and singular approaches to liberal arts education.

During our programs you'll discover what makes our consortium special, and hear more about our distinctive missions. After the presentations, you'll have a chance to ask questions to the presenters. 
 
Thursday, February 25 at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5 pm MST)

This session provides an overview of the Claremont Colleges and an introductory understanding of each individual college. For more detailed information of each college please visit their respective websites.

Registration for each event will close 24 hours before the event start time. There is a 1,000 person limit for each event, and we will have a waitlist. If you are on the waitlist you will be notified via email if space becomes available for the event in which you are registered.
