From enrollment to graduation, Olivet College is committed to your personal, academic and career success.
How do we make this happen? Our highly qualified faculty and staff are committed to engaging with you, our students, throughout the learning process. While the learning that happens in the classroom is powerful and important, you also grow as an individual while you live, play and interact with your faculty and peers outside the classroom. In fact, we often form connections with students that last well beyond graduation.
We invite you to campus to experience Olivet for yourself. We thank you for your interest in this great place, and look forward to seeing you soon!
Olivet College is fully accredited as an institution of higher education by the Higher Learning Commission. The college received reaccreditation for the maximum ten-year period with its last accreditation review.
