In response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Admissions and Financial Aid staff will be working remotely for the foreseeable future. As a result of our remote working environment, there will be no information sessions, campus tours, and in-person events until further notice. Our responsibility to manage the risk of coronavirus spread, along with adhering to state and local guidelines, outweighs our significant disappointment with not being able to introduce you to CMC in person and host you on our beautiful campus.
However, our commitment to communicating with you and sharing as much as we are able to about the CMC experience remains steadfast. While we are not on campus, our main phone lines and email will remain operative during our normal business hours of Monday through Friday (8 a.m. – 5 p.m. PST).
We will continue to add online resources for you to explore campus, so please check back with us frequently. Also, keep reading CMC’s COVID-19 website for updates about CMC’s response to these unprecedented challenges. We truly appreciate your patience, understanding, and resolve.
Take care of yourself and everyone around you.
Follow our Admission student tour guides as they explore their favorite campus spots.

WAYS TO ENGAGE
For prospective first-year and transfer students
We are hosting virtual information sessions, which will include an overview of the CMC mission and community while providing an ideal opportunity to have questions answered by admission representatives.
Tuesdays at 3:00 p.m. PDT
Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m. PDT
Thursdays at 5:00 a.m. PDT and 3:00 p.m. PDT
All online information session times are in Pacific Daylight Time (PDT). Please plan accordingly based on your time zone.
Please know that we do not use demonstrated interest in our application review. Whether or not you are able to visit campus will not be a factor in our admission review.
For admitted students
Admitted students, congratulations! We will be hosting virtual programming opportunities for you to learn more about all of aspects of the CMC experience and unique components that make us who we are. For the most updated information, check the link below. Also, keep an eye out for emails from your regional admission officer.
Explore the Claremont Colleges
Though you physically can’t be on campus, you can still “see” what we’re all about by exploring a virtual tour of the Claremont Colleges. The tour is dedicated to the broader community in Claremont, but offers specific glimpses of CMC life.
The fall 2020 transfer application deadline has been extended to April 15. We will continue to accept the Common Application, Coalition Application, and supporting documents through this date. Please check the Transfer Application Instructions webpage for the most updated information.
At Claremont McKenna College, our students are dreamers and doers — high achievers who understand that learning informs impact and that impact in turn inspires learning. We give them the tools they need for critical decision-making; the experiences they crave for intellectual and interpersonal development; and the community they seek for motivation, inspiration, and lifelong fulfillment.
