Facts & Statistics

Tips for Getting In
  • Be a self-starter.
  • Show interest in science and math.
  • Stand out scientifically.
Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Everyone says the school is hard, but students don't realize how difficult the school is until they are enrolled here.
  • How small the school is—900 students may not sound too small, but it is tiny for a college campus.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Call the admissions office at (626) 395-6341 Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST, to schedule interviews.
Campus Tours
Student-led tours depart daily from the admissions office, and reservations are not required. If you are unable to make a student-led tour, the admissions office offers a booklet to aid you in a self-led tour. For groups of six or more, please call the admissions office at (626) 395-6341 at least two weeks in advance for special arrangements.
