*In response to the number of requests for deadline extensions related to disruptions caused by COVID-19, Occidental's Regular Decision application will remain open until 5:00pm Pacific Standard Time on January 18, 2022. All applications and supporting credentials received by this date will be reviewed without penalty. (Students may see a message from the Common Application stating that the application has been submitted past the deadline, but this can be ignored).
Your academic record will speak for itself. But what else matters? Our best advice is to be yourself. There's no formula for getting in. Creative, soulful, funny, introspective—all words to describe some of our most memorable applicants, but the common thread is always authenticity.
