Registration for winter term 2018 has moved entirely online. To support students in this transition, One|Stop drop-in hours will be available. Students who would like assistance with registration or want to discuss ideas for winter term can attend One|Stop hours from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 26 in the Rathskeller. Subsequent drop-in hours will also take place from 11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Rathskeller on the following Mondays: October 30; November 6, 13, 20, 27; December 4, 11.

Information for Students

1. Registration begins after you have met with a sponsor and agreed on your participation in a Group Project or the design of your Individual Project. Do not start this process on December 1.

2. Have your project all figured out? Go to studyaway.oberlin.edu, and click on “Winter Term Project Registration” in the left hand navigation bar.

  • From the main winter term project registration page, you will see two categories of projects: Group or Individual. Each category will list the three types of projects underneath it.
    • From there you can click on the type of project you would like to do, and you will find more information about the project.
    • In rare cases, the Sponsor for your Group Project will provide you with a link that takes you directly to the online registration page for that specific project.
  • Most importantly, the entire registration process for any type of winter term project will be organized directly through the studyaway.oberlin.edu portal.
Group Projects Individual Projects
* Find your project from the groups listed.
* Click “Apply Now” and fill in application for your project.
* Can’t find it? Email Mike Rainaldi in the Study Away Office.
* You will receive an email after you have been “accepted” into the project.
* Log back into the system and “commit” to the project.

From the Winter Term Registration landing page, click on the type of Individual project you would like to do.

On the next screen, you can click “Apply Now,” and complete the following 3 items:
1. Fill out the Project Proposal and print it out on paper
2. Take it to your Sponsor for their signature, then scan and upload the signed proposal to your application.
3. Send your Sponsor a “Sponsorship Request” through the online portal
Once you have completed these three tasks, and your sponsor has physically and electronically signed off, press "submit"

 

Information for Faculty

Sponsors of Individual Projects:
1. Help the student design a project that is likely to have a real impact on them and is achievable in the time allotted. It is always good to ask them how they plan to manage their 6 hours a day commitment to a full project. Make sure you will have what you need to decide if credit was earned at the end of the month.

2. Sign the student’s Project Description and make a copy for yourself (or ask the student to email you the scanned version). Sadly, the software won’t do this for you.

3. You will receive an automatically generated email asking you to confirm your sponsorship. Log into the system and answer yes or no.

Sponsors of Group Projects:
Please get in touch with Mike Rainaldi if you have not done so already.
