For School Counselors

Dear Colleague,

We are grateful to you for the important role you play in supporting your students’ college aspirations. As you assist your students with their college search, we hope this site will make it easier to locate information about Oberlin’s application process, financial aid, visit programs and other useful information.

I want to especially draw your attention to our multicultural fly-in program. We offer all-expense paid trips to visit Oberlin for students of color at three different times in the fall. To learn more about how your students can take advantage of this program, please visit

We also offer college counselors the opportunity to visit campus as we participate in the Ohio Counselor Tour each spring. The Ohio College Tour includes Oberlin, Kenyon, Ohio Wesleyan, Wittenberg and the College of Wooster.

If you are interested in participating, register your interest on the tour website or let me know so that I can make sure you receive an invitation. Or, if you’d rather visit Oberlin on your own, we would love to host you any time.

On behalf of members of the admissions staff at the College of Arts and Sciences and the Conservatory of Music, we would like to thank you for your past and present contributions to the life blood of Oberlin: our students.

If you have questions or comments, please call us at 800-622-6243 or write to

Best regards,

Manuel Carballo
Vice President and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid
