For more than 20 years, Occidental has hosted fall and spring programs designed to broaden access to an Oxy education.
The Tiger Access Program (TAP) introduces traditionally underrepresented, first-generation and/or low-income students to Oxy's academic and residential community. Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, our TAP program will be in a virtual format for Fall 2021. The College is excited to welcome a new TAP cohort to explore Oxy through virtual experiences and programming over two weekends this fall. Each program will include a brief information session, introduction to Oxy's academic and student life programs and a chance to connect with current students.
Interested students may choose to participate on either Sunday, September 26, 2021, or Sunday, October 17, 2021, at 10:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. PDT.
