We have enhanced our website to support counselors with additional information and virtual resources—please feel free to check out Oxy's School & CBO Counselors page. All of our publications for counselors and prospective students, including the Financial Literacy Guide and Report to College Counselors, are published on this site. • Occidental has moved its Early Decision II deadline forward one month, to February 1. This extra month will afford students the opportunity to have their full first term of senior year considered as part of the application. It will also give students and their families added time to research Occidental before identifying it as their first choice. More information is available here. • Earlier this spring, we joined hundreds of our peers with a commitment to a test optional policy for first-year and transfer applications. • Occidental opted for a fully virtual fall semester, but we are hopeful to bring back students to our residential community for the spring semester. We are coordinating with Los Angeles County health officials and hope to have a definitive announcement in early December. Furthermore, as you will see within the Report to College Counselors, in February Occidental welcomed Harry J. Elam, Jr. as the College’s 16th president. As Stanford University's vice provost for the past decade, Dr. Elam brings proven leadership skills, a profound understanding of undergraduate education, and an enthusiastic embrace of our commitment to access and excellence. We are thrilled to have President Elam join the Oxy community! While the start of this school year has certainly brought its own unique set of challenges and obstacles, we are continually grateful for all the work you do for students. If you or your students have not yet had the opportunity to further engage virtually with Oxy, we would be remiss not to ensure that invite has been appreciative of your continued efforts.
