Event Registration

Important Notice (Updated June 19, 2020):

We understand how important the college search is. We love introducing Oberlin to future Obies and for many families that means visiting our campus. Due to COVID-19 and the emphasis on the safety of our community, we have suspended many of our admission-related campus visit activities until further notice. This includes in-person interviews, college information sessions, and any larger admissions events. Learn more about Oberlin’s response to COVID-19.

The admissions office is open for guided campus tours on a limited basis beginning June 23, 2020. Updates will be shared as additional campus visit activities become available.


In-Person Visit Options

Before scheduling a visit to campus, please review our COVID-19 Guidelines for Admissions Visits.

Conservatory of Music Information Session & Tour

We are offering a combined information session and tour to a limited number of conservatory prospective students each weekday. The Conservatory Information Session will take place inside the Birenbaum Innovation and Performance Space. The tour will explore all major areas of the conservatory complex, including recital halls and practice spaces. Originally planned to be outside, the format of the conservatory tour may be adapted for health and/or weather reasons depending on the current circumstances.

Advance registration is required. Please select your desired visit date from the calendar below to check availability.

If you need to change or cancel your registration, please contact us at conservatory.admissions@oberlin.edu. If there is no visit option on the date you select, all sessions that day are currently full. Please choose another date, or contact the Office of Conservatory Admissions at conservatory.admissions@oberlin.edu for additional information or options.


Virtual Visit Options

Oberlin College Information Session

A live presentation about Oberlin College and the admission process led by an Oberlin admissions counselor and Oberlin student(s) and with time for Q&A. These sessions are typically offered Mondays and Fridays at 4pm EDT, Wednesdays at 7pm EDT, and Saturdays at 1pm EDT.

Information sessions for international students will be offered twice a month at 8 am EDT (UTC -4). These sessions will cover the same material, with an added focus on Oberlin's international student community, and are offered at a time that is hopefully more accessible for prospective students around the world. If you have any questions, or if these times are inconvenient for you, please email international.admissions@oberlin.edu.

Q&A with Oberlin Students

A panel of 3 or 4 current Oberlin students will share their personal Oberlin experiences and answer all of your questions. Ask us anything! Q&A Sessions are currently being offered on Thursdays at 4 pm EDT.

Once per month, our session will focus on topics of Diversity and Inclusion — please register for a Thursday session titled “Many Voices Panel” if you would like to attend a panel with this focus.
