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 2016 enrollment may be submitted online at the Common Application website after August 1. 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.

How Jules Greene Does Summer: An Illustrated Look

I now think about where I was this time last year, when I was fresh off the tails of high school and pretty darn directionless with how I was going to spend my summer, and yeah, I can totally see why some people have not been able to recognize me.
