Program Description:
Spelman
Spelman College, located in Atlanta, Georgia, is a historically Black college (HBCU) for women. The College is a member of the Atlanta University Center consortium, where students can enjoy taking courses at Morehouse College and Clark Atlanta University as well as use their common areas for studying. The College provides a comprehensive liberal arts program through study in the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. It offers over 85 clubs and organizations. Students also often find various activities to engage in Atlanta including exploring local culture, food, internships and research opportunities.

Academic program:
Pomona College students enroll in, at a minimum, the equivalent of three Pomona College credits and a maximum of 4.75 Pomona College credits. Grades earned at Spelman College will be calculated into the Pomona College GPA.

Courses must follow the Transfer Credit Policy and should be reviewed by the student’s Academic Advisor. The Department Chair will ultimately decide if courses taken through the domestic exchange program apply towards the student’s major, therefore please consult with them before moving forward with the application.
Please keep in mind that General Education credit is not awarded for coursework taken on domestic programs as it must be taken at The Claremont Colleges.

Living arrangements:
Students will stay in one of Spelman’s dormitories and participate in the meal plan.

Number of students:
Spelman College has a student body of approximately 2,100 students representing 43 states and 13 countries. This includes more than 99% students of color (98% Black or African American), 0.5% international students, and more than 13% first-generation students.

Pomona College student participation depends on interest. Historically, up to two students participate per semester.
