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.



Oberlin College has approved a policy that allows applications for admission from undocumented persons to be considered as part of the domestic pool. For more information, please visit the undocumented applicant page.
