Oberlin College

Tuition & Aid
Bottom line

Oberlin’s top-notch education does not come free. The annual tuition is $44,500 and students will spend another $14,000 a year on housing, living, and other expenses. That said, Oberlin is very committed to helping students financially. One hundred percent of needy freshmen receive financial aid here, and 60 percent of the undergraduate population as a whole. The average grant was $28,500 to students who needed aid last year. Oberlin is also one of the few American universities that offer a substantial amount of aid to international students. Those who get into Oberlin will get a truly unique education. As one student exclaims, “Oberlin has let me expand my horizons in ways I never would have imagined before I got to college!”
