Courses Open to and Appropriate for New Students


Return to: College of Arts and Sciences, Degree Programs and Requirements

This list contains courses that are open and appropriate for summer registration by incoming first-year students. If you have advising questions about these courses, please email first.year.advice@oberlin.edu. Changes to the original version of this document have been noted with cancellations (strikethroughs) and additions (bolded).

Courses with pre-requisites and courses that require consultation with a member of the faculty before registration have been omitted from the list; you will be able to register for these courses when you arrive on campus in the fall during the on-campus registration period and add/drop.

For complete descriptions of these courses, please see the list below.

A quick guide to fall course meeting times and days is available at: http://new.oberlin.edu/office/registrar/class-schedules/ or you may search PRESTO (presto.cc.oberlin.edu) for schedule information.

Language Courses: If you have no prior experience in a certain language, you should take the 100-level course in that language. If you have prior study or exposure to the language, you must take a placement test before registering. Please see the new students website section on Academic Planning (https://new.oberlin.edu/new-students/academic-planning/) for information about placement exams. The placement test will guide us in placing you in the correct course in our curriculum; once you know the results of the placement exam, you will be able to register for the appropriate class after you arrive on campus.
