The Exchange & Study Abroad Program is open to both exchange students from J. F. Oberlin's partner institutions abroad and to independent applicants. In either case, applicants must have completed at least one year of previous college- or university-level study with a good academic record. A grade point average of at least 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) and one year's previous study of the Japanese language are recommended (although not absolutely required) for admission to the program.
