Conservatory Orientation

Conservatory Orientation

Welcome to Oberlin! We look forward to seeing you in August and are busy preparing for your arrival. Among our many tasks, the Office of the Conservatory Associate Deans assists students with advising and is a good resource for help with a variety of issues. Students can make appointments or come in during walk-in hours, which are held several times per week. 

On this website you will find important information for conservatory majors, and for college students interested in conservatory courses, lessons, and ensembles. If you have not already done so, you must complete your New Student Registration forms accessible via the applicant portal, ( Review our Orientation schedule to see the activities planned to help in your transition to Oberlin.
