Junior Visit Program

Attention juniors! The Spring Junior Visit Program is an insider’s view of Oberlin that will allow you to take a tour, sit in on classes, speak to admissions counselors and current students, complete an interview, and attend other events on campus. The 2016 Junior Visit Program dates are below and registration will open in early January 2016. 

Program Dates:

  • Monday, February 15th 2016
  • Friday, February 26th 2016
  • Friday, March 11th 2016

There is no cost to participate in the program. However, transportation costs and any incidental expenses must be provided by each family.

A note about Interviews:
Admissions interviews are typically reserved for high school seniors; however, interviews will be offered during the Junior Visit Program on a first-come, first-served basis. Interviews are typically 30 minutes, are informational in nature, and are not required for admission, except in the case of homeschooled students or students completing high school in fewer than the traditional 4 years.

Not sure if you're ready to interview? No problem! There will be many opportunities to interview in the future, both on-campus and off-campus. Off-campus options include alumni interviews, phone or Skype interviews, or interviews in a city near you.

A note about Overnights:
The Admissions Office is not able to sponsor on campus overnight accommodations for the Junior Visit Program. If the prospective student knows a current Oberlin student and would like to stay on campus with this person overnight, please indicate this on the registration form.

Special hotel rates have been secured at La Quinta Inns & Suites in North Olmsted and the Hampton Inn in Westlake, OH. Alternately, the Oberlin Inn is within walking distance to the Admissions Office; reservations may be made by calling 440-775-1111. Please note: The Oberlin Inn is currently under construction. Additional information about accommodations, local restaurants, and transportation services can be found on the Visiting Oberlin webpage.
