aren't required, but are strongly recommended. They are an incredible opportunity for the admission team to learn about the individual behind your transcript and essays, adding a truly personal dimension to your application. Oxy alumni are available across the nation and in select international cities if you'd like to schedule a local alumni interview. Please note that alumni interviewers are volunteers and have limited availability, so we strongly encourage you to request interviews at least 4-6 weeks in advance of our application deadlines.
Information Sessions in Your Hometown
Occidental College Admission Officers travel the country and abroad each Fall to visit high schools and hold information sessions about the College. Students on our mailing list will receive an email if we are visiting your school or holding an event in your area. Make sure you are receiving emails from Occidental so that you don't miss out on a great opportunity to connect with an Admission Officer in person!
Virtual Information Session
While we travel to locations across the country and the world, we recognize that we aren’t able to meet every prospective student in their hometown. For those that haven’t been able to visit campus, we are offering an opportunity to learn more about Occidental College in a virtual setting.
