New Resources Program
Pitzer College established the New Resources program in 1974 to bring the small, liberal arts college experience to students of non-traditional college age. The program was founded with the conviction that a truly diverse campus is one eager to encounter the added dimension brought by students of a range of ages as well as backgrounds and interests.
To be considered for admission the applicant must be in good standing at the last institution attended and be 25 years of age or older. New Resources candidates may download the application online or request a hard copy from the Admission Office. In addition to the application for admission and a non-refundable $60 application fee, New Resources candidates must complete two essays, send official transcripts and submit two references from professors or employers.
New Resources students can transfer a maximum of 64 semester units or 96 quarter units from a community college. An additional 32 semester units or 48 quarter units may be transferred from an accredited four-year institution. Applicants for the New Resources program are required to have an on-campus interview with an Admission Counselor by May 1. The interview provides prospective students the opportunity to have questions answered concerning admission, programs of study, transferable credit and financial aid possibilities. Please contact the Office of Admission at (800) 748-9371 or (909) 621-8129 to arrange for this interview.
