Tiger Access Program

Students sitting at a table at a MVP event

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.

Program at a glance:
