Harvey Mudd, founded in 1955, is a private college of engineering and science. It is one of the Claremont Colleges, a group of five undergraduate colleges and one graduate school with adjoining campuses and shared facilities and services. Its 18-acre campus is located in Claremont, California.


HMC is one of the premier math, science and engineering colleges in the nation. We’re also unique because we are a liberal arts college.

We educate engineers, scientists and mathematicians who become leaders in their fields and have a clear understanding of the impact their work has on society.

We operate on an "early in-early out" semester schedule.  Classes begin a few days on either side of Labor Day; we have devised a short "fall break" in mid-October, have the traditional days off after Thanksgiving, and usually end classes around the 5th or 10th of December, with a wekk of finals afterwards.  Students are away from campus from about the 20th of December until about the 20th of January at which time the spring semester begins.  Our spring break occurs in mid-March, classes usually end after the first week of May, and commencement closes the spring semester in mid-May.
