Advising and Support

Overview

Overview

As a member of the Oberlin community, you have access to a wealth of academic resources. From academic advisors to foreign language labs, class deans to learning assistance programs, our faculty and staff members are prepared to help you reach your academic goals and support you throughout your academic journey.

Professional staff from Student Academic Services takes the lead in providing students in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music with comprehensive support through Learning Assistance Programs and Guidance Services. In addition, focused services support the efforts of underrepresented students and those who are first generation, low income, or have a disability.

In addition to an academic advisor, class deans are available to support you as you solve various academic, social, and personal problems. Class deans work in concert with faculty advisors to support students as they navigate the transitions of college life.
