Claremont Colleges

The Claremont Colleges are a group of colleges located in Claremont, California forming a tightly integrated consortium. Each college is independent, but course schedules and budgets are coordinated, particularly amongst the undergraduate colleges. Students at any college in the consortium may take classes from any of the other colleges, a policy facilitated by the fact that the individual colleges' campuses are adjoining, forming in effect one large campus for the consortium.

The five undergraduate colleges are:

The two graduate universities are:

The Claremont School of Theology[?] is affiliated with the consortium, but not a member.

Athletics teams from Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College and Scripps College compete as one team. Male athletic teams are called the Stags, and women's teams are called the Athenas. The teams participate in the NCAA's Division III and in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC). Pomona College and Pitzer College compete together in the SCIAC. Their teams are called the Sagehens.
