Advising and Support



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 assist underrepresented students and those who are first generation, low income, or have a disability.

If you are an international student, the Office of International Students will aid in your transition to living and learning in a new community. From immigration issues to finding your way around Oberlin, the staff is committed to helping you achieve academic and personal success.

In addition to an academic advisor, class deans are available to support you as you address various academic, social, and personal issues. Each class has a class dean who works in concert with faculty advisors to support students as they navigate the various adjustments and complexities of college life.
