Required Writing Supplement
Check out the questions for the Required Writing Supplement for transfer applicants.
Using the Oxy Supplement on the Common App, respond to the following questions:
1. If you’ve had the opportunity to visit campus, please indicate when and in what capacity, and briefly describe your visit experience. (250-word limit)
2. There are thousands of colleges and universities. Why are you applying to Occidental? In your opinion, what distinguishes it from your other choices? (300-word limit)
3. While we realize your interests may change in college, what are your current academic and intellectual curiosities? (250-word limit)
Attention first-year applicants: please visit your required supplement questions in the First-Year Student Application Requirements section.
Transfer applicants, in addition to our supplemental questions, don't forget that we also require a writing sample from a college course (with grade and commentary if possible).
