Special Students

Procedures for Oberlin College Employees or Their Spouses

Oberlin College employees or their spouses must obtain a registration form from the registrar's office; the forms are available beginning on the first day of classes in each semester. The employee or spouse must fill out the form, obtain the appropriate signature, and return the form to the registrar's office by the add/drop deadline. The employee or spouse must also pick up a staff tuition remission form (available at the registrar's office), complete the form, have their supervisor sign it, and send it to the appropriate dean's office for approval. Employees are not registered for their course until the approved tuition remission form has been returned to the registrar's office by the dean's office.

Procedures for Persons not affiliated with Oberlin College

Persons interested in attending Oberlin as special, non-degree students (with the exception of Oberlin College employees and their spouses) must apply through the admissions office for admission as a special student. Once admitted, special students register through the registrar's office (Carnegie 124). Special students should obtain a registration form, which is available beginning on the first day of classes, complete it, obtain the appropriate signature (instructor and/or dean), and return the form to the registrar's office by the add/drop deadline. The registrar's office will then process the registration. Oberlin high school students are charged a $25 administrative fee.

Questions about special student status should be directed to the Office of the Registrar (440-775-8450).
