Arts and Sciences Admissions
Oberlin is a highly selective liberal arts college founded in 1833. We are a community of thinkers, scholars, artists, musicians, and activists who share an intense desire for learning, creation, and engagement. We care about the world, believe we can make it a better place, and have the courage to try.



Applications to Oberlin for 2015 enrollment may now be submitted online at the Common Application website. In addition, we encourage you to submit the optional Application Part I as early as possible, so that we are aware of your intent to apply and may follow up with you regarding important dates and requirements. 

There is no fee to apply to the College of Arts & Sciences.

Smells Like Tween Spirit

We all had an awkward phase. Me, I was a twelve-year-old Twilight fan rocking out to Nirvana, lamenting that my classmates weren't as cool as Daria Morgendorffer.

Support Is.......

As a college student, everything is not just about academics. But those little things that harm you as a person will harm you as a student.
