Pitzer College History

Pitzer College was named for benefactor, noted philanthropist, and orange grower Russell K. Pitzer (1878-1978). Founded in 1963 as the sixth institution of The Claremont Colleges, Pitzer began as a residential liberal arts campus for women with a curricular emphasis in the social and behavioral sciences. Pitzer was the first independent women's college to open in the United States since Bennington College in 1932.

The College began in 1964 with an entering class of 153 students. The founding faculty, students, and staff designed Pitzer as an innovative liberal arts institution. The College's pioneering programs embraced interdisciplinarity in teaching and learning, creative and cooperative classroom experience, and community governance, encouraging every voice to be heard equally and fully.

Pitzer College received accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in 1965. By 1968, the College's enrollment had grown to some 550 students, and in 1970, Pitzer became co educational with a student population of 618 women and 80 men.

Today, Pitzer enrolls approximately 1,000 students in more than 40 fields of study leading to the bachelor of arts degree. Some of the more popular concentrations are psychology, sociology, political studies, media studies, environmental studies and art.

Students continue to create their own academic programs in close collaboration with faculty advisers. There are no formal lists of requirements at the College; rather, students are guided by a unique set of six educational objectives: Breadth of Knowledge; Understanding in Depth; Critical Thinking, Formal Analysis and Effective Expression; Interdisciplinary Perspective; Intercultural Understanding; and Concern with Social Responsibility and the Ethical Implications of Knowledge and Action.

In keeping with its distinctive heritage, Pitzer remains dedicated to individual growth while building community. Students are expected to engage in community service learning, and the campus is now a leader in sustainability, intercultural understanding and global study and inquiry.

Students of ethnically diverse backgrounds come from all parts of the United States, as well as from nearly 20 other countries to attend Pitzer College. In addition to learning from one another, students are encouraged to participate in one of Pitzer's study abroad and international programs. Pitzer challenges students to develop a set of courses that will expose and engage them with issues from the perspective of at least two cultures and two disciplines. Students are also invited to take advantage of the many other Claremont resources that enrich and strengthen their appreciation of global diversity.

Wecome to Financial Aid

Pitzer College's financial aid program supports the goals of the admission program: to bring to the campus a student body of quality and diversity. Financial aid at Pitzer is awarded to students on the basis of financial need. During the 2008-09 academic year, approximately 42% of the Pitzer student body received some form of financial assistance.

Financial aid is assistance that helps pay the difference between your family's determined ability to pay and what it will actually cost for you to go to college. Financial aid at Pitzer College is viewed as supplementary to your family's financial ability and commitment.

Any student whose family is unable to meet the costs of a Pitzer education is encouraged to apply for financial aid.

All full-time regularly admitted students with demonstrated financial need who are citizens of the United States or Trust Territories, or who are permanent residents of the United States, are eligible for financial aid.

The Financial Aid Office uses the information supplied by the family on the FAFSA and the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE about income, family size, assets, and family members in college to determine the amount the family can provide toward the cost of education. The computation allows for necessary family expenditures such as taxes, reasonable living costs, educational savings for siblings, and unusual medical expenses. It protects a portion of the family's assets as allowances for emergencies and educational savings. Part of the remaining income and assets is assumed to be available for current college expenses. In addition, each student is expected to provide between $1,550 and $1,900 for books and personal expenses from non-term earnings and a portion of any personal savings or asset.

The three types of financial aid offered at Pitzer College are:
(1) grant funds (those funds that you do not need to repay or earn);
(2) loan funds (funds that you must repay after you graduate); and
(3) employment funds (those funds you earn by working).

A financial aid award or "package" combines these three different types of aid. Pitzer College will ask you to assume a larger loan each year as you progress toward your degree. The average indebtedness of those students who received financial aid for four years at Pitzer and graduated in May 2008 was approximately $15,100. You assume the responsibility for repayment when the loans come due.

Tuition Management Systems (TMS) offers choices for financing education including monthly payment plans, education loans, e-payment options and one-on-one education payment counseling.
