Tiger Access Program

For more than 20 years, Occidental has hosted fall and spring multicultural programs.

The Tiger Access Program (TAP), formerly known as the Multicultural Visit Program (MVP), introduces traditionally underrepresented, first-generation and/or low-income students to Oxy's academic and residential community. Historically, the College pays travel expenses for high school seniors interested in Oxy to visit campus and witness firsthand what makes us unique. COVID-19 restrictions have changed our ability to offer transportation to campus, but we are committed to creating a personalized and informative experience for underrepresented students considering Occidental College.
