Investing in education equates to an investment in human potential. At Oberlin College, our financial aid policies reflect a historic commitment to inclusion and academic excellence.

Financial aid packages meet 100 percent of the demonstrated need for every student as calculated by the Office of Financial Aid. Grants typically make up about 75 percent of a student's award, with the balance composed of work-study and low-interest loans.

Oberlin’s Net Price Calculator offers assistance to families seeking an estimate of their need-based financial award. Although the Net Price Calculator is a helpful tool in planning for the cost of college, it is only an estimate.

The Office of Financial Aid maintains the strictest confidentiality with students’ and families’ personal information. If you have additional questions or cannot find the information you are looking for, please feel free to contact us.
