Information about your financial aid application status [i.e., which forms have been received and which are outstanding] and financial aid awards is available through PRESTO! , Oberlin's online records system.

To find financial aid information in PRESTO!, you will need your Oberlin identification number [your T number] and your personal identification number [PIN number]. These are the same numbers you use for registration.

Applicants for Financial Aid

Your T number is printed on the top right corner of all financial aid letters.  T numbers are confidential and should be safeguarded.

When you enter PRESTO!  for the first time, your PIN will be preset to your birth date in a MMDDYY format. For security reasons, once you sign on using that PIN, you will be told that the PIN is disabled and asked to create a new PIN immediately.  You will be prompted to select a new PIN and a security question that will allow you to access PRESTO! 

If you forget your PIN, please contact the Office of Financial Aid to have it reset.

PRESTO! is available only to students that have applied for financial aid at Oberlin. Award information will be made available on PRESTO! at the same time that financial award letters are mailed [usually in late March or early April for regular-decision applicants].

Current Students

Current students should use their PRESTO! PIN number to access financial aid information on PRESTO!

Award information for returning students is made available on PRESTO! at the same time that financial aid award letters are mailed [usually beginning in June preceding the academic year].

Current students who forget their PIN should contact the Office of the Registrar at for assistance.
