Students attend the school for three two-week terms over consecutive summers and complete a written project between each term: Project I, an analysis of the student’s credit union, and Project II, which involves strategic planning for the credit union’s future. Students also take a comprehensive examination at the end of each school year.
The university level faculty is made up of distinguished professors, attorneys, high level credit union professionals and consultants. To promote the learning experience, students live in Pomona College dormitories, take their meals in its dining halls, and engage in numerous structured out-of-classroom service learning activities.
