Interviews aren't required, but are strongly encouraged as they help us get to know you.
Fall 2022 First-Year & Spring 2022 Transfer Applicants
Interview requests are now open! All Occidental College admission interviews are conducted by our senior fellows or alumni volunteers. No matter where your interview is conducted or by whom, all our interview types are weighted equally in our admission process.
If you'd like us to learn more about you beyond your application, make sure to schedule your interview before our application deadlines. All interview requests will close December 2021. While they are highly encouraged, please note that applicants will not be penalized in the admission process if they do not have the opportunity to interview.
We look forward to learning more about you!
