Have a creative streak? We want to know about it.
Your academic qualifications will matter the most in admission, but your art supplement can show us some of the other talents you’d bring to Oxy. SUBMISSIONS MUST BE UPLOADED OR POSTMARKED BY FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 2014
Visual artists may upload images (up to three) via your application portal. Applicants will receive instructions via email about accessing the portal shortly after submitting the Common Application and Occidental Writing Supplement.

*Due to the volume we receive, please note that submissions of any kind cannot be returned.
Guidelines for musicians: Vocalists and instrumentalists should present at least two works of contrasting style or historical period; composers should present recordings of two contrasting compositions; and jazz musicians should present a slow jazz ballad and an uptempo jazz standard.
