Joining OSCA Is Easy!

Each year, OSCA conducts lotteries to determine which students will become members of OSCA the subsequent Fall. All participants receive a randomly assigned lottery number to ensure that all applicants have an equal chance at becoming members of OSCA. 

In February, OSCA conducts a Spring Lottery for students returning to Oberlin College in the Fall or subsequent Spring. 

In June, OSCA conducts a similar Summer Lottery for students new to Oberlin College. 

At all other times of the year, students may become members of OSCA by joining the Wait List.
