A coalition of Pomona College students organizing as #HomelessAtPomona say that many petitions to remain on campus have been rejected.
The 5Cs are sending students home and moving classes online, and many students have been left wondering about housing and financial issues.
Despite Pomona College’s promise to first-generation and low income students to support their financial needs, FLI students are too often left with no help to buy hundreds of dollars of textbooks.
The programs Pomona College has implemented to help students afford textbooks have left many students unclear if and how they can receive financial support for academic materials.
Pomona violated its work-study contract, informing nearly 60 students that they had reached their work-study limit and needed to stop working.
Some international students at the 5Cs report difficulties with the financial aid processes due to more restrictive policies compared to domestic students, such as need-aware admissions.
