Affiliated Programs

Oberlin Affiliated Programs

An Oberlin-affiliated program is one which has been nominated by an academic department or program and approved by the Off-Campus Study Committee. Eligible students may apply Oberlin and federal aid to these programs. Programs recognized by the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) are considered affiliated programs. Information about the application of the GLCA Tuition Remission Exchange benefit is available at the Costs and Financial Aid section of this website.

The Off-Campus Study Committee, with appropriate departmental input, has carefully reviewed the list of Oberlin-affiliated Programs. The programs on our affiliated list represent geographic, academic, disciplinary and program diversity. Occasionally, a student may wish to request that institutional aid be applied to a non-affiliated program. This request is made to the Off-Campus Study Committee through a rigorous petition process. Such a request must be made on the basis of compelling academic reasons. Petitions will be considered on the strength of the academic program, administrative structure (housing, health and safety issues, etc.) and on the rationale presented by the student. Petitions must be received by March 1 (for Fall programs) and October 1 (for Spring programs). Students must meet with a Study Away Advisor in Peters 205 prior to submitting their petition.
