Students sitting at a table at a MVP event

For more than 25 years, Occidental has hosted fall and spring programs designed to broaden access to an Oxy education.

Through our Tiger Access Program (TAP), we welcome new cohorts of students to explore Occidental in the fall and spring (for admitted students only) with specialized programming and on campus fly-in opportunities. Selected students get to experience our residential & academic communities while connecting with current students, faculty and admission staff. While TAP is open to all eligible high school seniors (U.S. citizens, undocumented/DACA students, and Permanent Residents), the program focuses on furthering access for students who come from underrepresented groups, are first-generation, low-income, and whose identities are in other marginalized communities. 

If you are a high school junior who wants to know when the Fall 2024 TAP application goes live, complete the TAP interest form!

Should you have any questions about the program, please send us an email at
