Tuition and Fees
Tuition is billed in July for the Fall semester and in December for the Spring Semester. Room, board and other miscellaneous charges are posted on the student’s Oberlin College account as they are received by the program. Oberlin College pays the program, so all payments should be made directly to Oberlin College. In some instances a deposit made directly to the program is necessary to secure a spot.
Any approved academic leave of absence (ALOA) semester, whether through an Oberlin Affiliated Program or not, will be charged Oberlin College’s standard tuition rates. If the program tuition is higher than Oberlin's tuition, the higher tuition will be charged. Room and board costs for the semester are those charged by the program.
Any student approved for study away programs and wishing to receive aid must complete the same financial aid forms as those students intending to remain on campus. All financial aid deadlines and requirements apply. In addition, students who wish to apply financial aid (Oberlin, Federal, etc) to a study away program must complete the ALOA Consortium/Contractual Agreement and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid.
For students approved for an academic leave to attend a non-affiliated program, no Oberlin need-based or merit aid is available; however, federal aid (e.g. Pell grant, Stafford and PLUS loans) can be applied to the cost of your program if you complete the ALOA Consortium/Contractual Agreement and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid.
