Pomona College and Pitzer College suspended study abroad for fall 2020 but have yet to make a final decision on spring study abroad.

The shortened semester has students struggling to keep up, especially without the usual fall break. This year 5C students will go straight into finals week immediately following the Thanksgiving holiday.
While the 5C campuses have gone quiet with online classes, some graduate students at Claremont Graduate University and Keck Graduate Institute are toiling away in their Claremont classrooms — some conducting research on COVID-19 vaccines and virus detection strategies, and others visiting campus to access art studios.
