Advising and Support

Overview

Overview

Professional staff from Student Academic Services takes the lead in providing students in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music with comprehensive support through Learning Assistance Programs and Guidance Services. In addition, focused services support the efforts of underrepresented students and those who are first generation, low income, or have a disability.

If you are an international student, we offer services through the Office of International Students that support your transition to living and learning in a new community. From immigration issues to finding your way around Oberlin, the staff is available to help you achieve academic and personal success.

In addition to an academic advisor, class deans are available to support you as you solve various academic, social, and personal problems. Class deans work in concert with faculty advisors to support all students as they navigate the various adjustments of college life.
