Does ArtCenter have a relationship with Occidental College?


To enhance the learning opportunities we offer students, ArtCenter provides unique cross-enrollment programs with two neighboring instutions: Occidental College (“Oxy”) and Caltech.

Located less than 10 miles from ArtCenter’s campus, ArtCenter has an approved Humanities and Sciences exchange program with Occidental College, an institution noted for its interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to the liberal arts.

During the Fall and Spring terms, full-time ArtCenter students can enroll in a non-studio liberal arts and sciences course at Oxy for no additional tuition charges, as long as the course meets specific Humanities and Science requirements in their major. Certain restrictions apply and Oxy may require additional fees beyond tuition. For more information about the Humanities exchange program, contact ArtCenter’s Registrar.

In return, full-time Oxy students can take art and design classes at ArtCenter through the College’s ArtCenter Extension (ACX) program. Oxy students interested in enrolling should contact the ArtCenter Extension office.

Oxy provides additional resources to ArtCenter students, faculty and staff. Individuals may register for borrowing privileges at the Occidental College Library, which has over 500,000 books, journals, magazines, newspapers, videos, audio recordings, CD-ROMs, microfiche collections and other materials designed to support and enhance student and faculty curricular needs.

Occidentail supplements ArtCenter's health and wellness programs by opening its sports facilities to our students during the Spring and Fall terms.
