Occidental Alumni Interview Request

    Interviews aren’t required, but Oxy alumni are available across the nation and in select international cities if you’d like to schedule one. But if you live within 50 miles of campus, we ask that you come to Oxy for your interview.

    Alumni interviewers are volunteers and have limited availability, so we strongly encourage you to request interviews at least 4-6 weeks in advance of our application deadlines.

    Please allow up to two weeks for your Oxy alumni interview assignment. At that point you and the alumni representative will be able to communicate directly to schedule your interview. Our alumni will not have Oxy email addresses, so be sure to watch your inbox (and spam folder) closely for a message. If you have any questions, please contact Olivia Martinez (omartine@oxy.edu).  

    REMINDER: All types of interviews (whether on campus or off; with an alumni representative, senior fellow, or admission officer) are weighed equally in our admission process. Thank you for not scheduling more than one interview.
