Access Oberlin

Access Oberlin is a selective, all-expenses-paid visit program for high-achieving high school seniors who have not yet had the opportunity to visit campus. We encourage applications from students from diverse backgrounds such as Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Hispanic/Latinx, or Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander. To support socioeconomic diversity, the selection committee will also consider students from families with limited financial resources, regardless of cultural or racial background, as well as those who are among the first in their families to attend college (first generation). Program dates and registration for Fall 2015 will be available in Summer 2015. 

Regional Fly-ins

Take advantage of a special trip to Oberlin for high school seniors from your area! The Regional Fly-in includes round-trip air transportation, ground transportation between the airport and campus, overnight accommodations in a residence hall, and all meals on campus. Registration for Fall 2015 will be available in Summer 2015.

    Senior Visit Days

    High school seniors are invited to experience Oberlin through a Senior Visit Day, a full-day program that includes an optional overnight stay in a residence hall with a current student. Registration for Fall 2015 Senior Visit Days will be available in Summer 2015.

    Spring 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 even stay overnight in a dorm. The 2015 Spring Junior Visit Program has concluded. Details about the 2016 program will be available next winter.
