Whether you’re an Ole, or just don’t know it yet, come to our Admitted Student Day program. You’ll have a chance to meet your classmates, get a head start on planning your first year, and talk to faculty and staff about what to expect. And, of course, you’ll get to enjoy a meal, take a look around the campus, and experience life as an Ole!

At every step of the way, the St. Olaf community will be there to support you, challenge you, and guide you towards a life of financial independence, professional accomplishment, personal fulfillment, and community engagement.



St. Olaf’s signature Conversation programs are interdisciplinary, team-taught explorations that take students on five distinct intellectual journeys through influential texts and ideas that have shaped our past and will guide our future.



For a little while, you’ll have two logins. For enrollment deposits, Admitted Student Day registration, and applications to our Conversation programs and Learning Communities, you’ll continue to use your Admissions login. Later in the spring, you’ll switch to your permanent St. Olaf student login for housing, course registration and other new student activities. If you are ever confused about which login to use or have any problems, please give us a call.

If you have any questions or need help, please do not hesitate to call or email by finding admissions officer contact information.
