Transfer Students

Johnson Hall in the spring

Ready for a change of scenery? Occidental may be just what you’re looking for.

Whether you've started your journey at a two-year or a four-year college, we hope you'll seriously consider joining our intellectual and residential community. And, if your academic trajectory has been a bit more off the beaten path, we look forward to hearing about how you've gotten here.

We know transfers make significant contributions to life at Oxy—so much so that we purposefully reserve places for you. In fact, we welcome approximately 50 transfers to our new student cohort each year.

Transfer students are afforded the same benefits as incoming first-year students with regard to financial aidclasses and registration. For specific questions, please review our transfer student FAQ or reach out to us!
