PURPOSE 

The Oglethorpe idea is to forge the strongest possible link 
between the "academic" and "practical," between "human un- 
derstanding" and "know-how," between "culture" and "profici- 
ency," between past and present. We are persuaded that there 
is ultimately no contradiction between the concepts repre- 
sented in each of these usually divorced pairs. 

There can be no basic disagreement among educators and 
laymen about the common elements of the student's real needs 
and interests. He is to learn as much as possible about the 
principles, forces, and laws influencing or governing Nature, in- 
cluding human nature and human associations; to learn to take 
account of these notonlyfortheir own sake butfor growth, guid- 
ance and direction for himself and others; to express his deepest 
individualityintheworkorcalling mostappropriateto histalents; 
and to discover his proper place, role, and function in the com- 
plex relationships of modern living. 

Living should not be an escape from work. Education should 
therefore encompass the twin aims of making a life and making 
a living. But inescapably he is part and parcel of society. He 
fulfills himself by the measure in which he contributes to the 
happiness and progress of his fellows. Education, as an institu- 
tion of society, has a social obligation. It cannot neglect either 
the individual or the community without damage to both. The 
social order at its best is best for the individual; the individual at 
his best is best for society. The business of education is to strive 
for this optimum. 

What difference should an education make? There are peo- 
ple, deficient in formal schooling, who are happy and useful. 
They understand and get along well with their neighbors. They 
are an influence for good in their community and earn a living 
by honest effort. Any truly educated man displays the same 
traits. The difference is in degree rather than kind. 



10 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 



Whereas it is usual for people to understand their fellows, 
howmuch widershould be the sympathies of the educated man! 
His contacts go beyond the living and embrace the seers of all 
the ages, whoas his companions should inform his mind and en- 
large his vision. 

Never before have people been so alive to the necessity of 
mastering rather than being mastered by the economic and sci- 
entific forces atwork in ourworld. Creative brains and individual 
initiative, tempered by a strong sense of social responsibility, 
are the only sources of payrolls compatible with a free society, 
and improving living standard, and a better way of life. Where 
else can we look for this creative urge other than to adequate 
education of qualified talent! 

We make no claim that formal education inevitably bestows 
these benefits. We insist that it can. If that be true, how may the 
mark be reached? We shall always have to remind ourselves as 
teachers that education is a difficult art. The pitfalls we would 
shun are hard to escape. Of all people, the teacher must remain 
the most teachable. The quest for wisdom is never-ending. We, 
too, must continually grow in order to stimulate growth in those 
who come to us to learn. We shall also have to remind ourselves 
that subjects are merely the means; the objects of instruction 
are the persons taught. We must be forever mindful that educa- 
tion, in order to be true to itself, must be a progressive experi- 
enceforthe learner, in which interest gives rise to inquiry, inquiry 
is pursued to mastery, and mastery at one point occasions new 
interests in others. The cycle is never closed, butisaspiral which 
always returns upon itself at some higher level of insight. 
Growth in everything which is human must remain the dominant 
objective for the individual and for society. 

We therefore stand for a program of studies which makes 
sense from first to last, which hangs together, and which pro- 
motes this desired result. Not only in professional training but 
also in the education of the human personality, the materials of 
instruction must have a beginning, point in a definite direction, 
and prepare for all that ensues. We necessarily make provision 
forandgivescopetodiversified talents in preparation for varied 
careers. But this much we all have in common: each man has to 
live with himself and all have to live with their fellows. Living in 
community, with human understanding, involves arts in which 
we are all equally concerned.

HISTORY OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

Oglethorpe's history dates back to 1835 when a group of 
Georgia Presbyterians, influenced by the example of Princeton 
University, secured a charter for the operation of a church- 
supported university in the academic pattern of the nineteenth 
century. Actual operations commenced in 1838 at Midway, 
a small community near Milledgeville, at that time the capitol 
of the state. 

For nearly three decades after its founding, the university 
steadily grew in stature and influence. Its president during 
most of that time, Samuel K. Talmage, provided gifted leader- 
ship and, at the same time, gathered about him a faculty of 
unusual ability, at least two of whom would achieve real distinc- 
tion: James Woodrow, an uncle of Woodrow Wilson and the 
first teacher in Georgia to hold the Ph.D., and Joseph LeConte, 
destined to world fame for his work in the field of geology. 

Oglethorpe alumni went forth in those years to play roles 
of importance in various fields. Perhaps the best-known of her 
graduates was the poet Sidney Lanier, a member of the Class 
of 1860, who remarked shortly before his death that the great- 
est intellectual impulse of his life had come to him during his 
college days at Oglethorpe. 

But the life and service of the school were suddenly cut 
short in the 1860s as Oglethorpe became a casualty of war. 
Her students marched away to become Confederate soldiers; 
her endowment at length was lost in Confederate bonds; her 
buildings were converted to military use as a barracks and 
hospital. In a sense, her fate became bound up with that of the 
Lost Cause. 

After the close of the conflict an effort was made to revive 
the institution, first at Midway and then by re-location in Atlanta. 
However, the ravages of war, together with the dislocations of 
Reconstruction, posed obstacles too great to overcome, and 
in 1872 Oglethorpe closed its doors for a second, and seem- 
ingly final, time. 

But three decades later, thanks largely to the determined 
energy and vision of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, the school was 
revived, chartered in 1913, and moved to its present location 
on the northern edge of metropolitan Atlanta. The cornerstone 
of the first building was laid in 1915 in a ceremony witnessed 



12 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

by members of the classes of 1860 and 1861; symbolically, 
thus, the old and the new were linked. 

From then until his resignation in 1944, President Jacobs 
became and remained the guiding spirit of the endeavor. He 
developed a number of ideas and enterprises which brought 
national, and even international, recognition to the school. 
Most notable among these were the establishment of a cam- 
pus radio station as early as 1 931 , and the completion in 1 940 
of the Crypt of Civilization to preserve 'for posterity a cross- 
section of twentieth-century life. 

Still a new era opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1944 
when Dr. Philip Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a 
group of faculty associates, initiated a new and exciting ap- 
proach to undergraduate education called the "Oglethorpe 
Ideal' As described more fully in the preceding section, the 
new departure was founded on the conviction that education 
should encompass the twin aims of making a life and making 
a living, and that toward these ends a program of studies 
should be developed which made sense from first to last and 
which meaningfully hung together. 

The last twenty years of Oglethorpe's history have revolved 
around the central issue of finding more effective means of 
answering the challenge posed by these fundamental purposes. 

At the same time, though the University is sympathetic 
toward all religions and encourages its students to affiliate 
with a local church of their own choosing or synagogue, formal 
support from church bodies was discontinued. Today Ogle- 
thorpe stands as a wholly private and non-sectarian institution 
of higher learning. 

The College has also developed a program of physical ex- 
pansion to keep pace with its academic growth. Five new 
dormitories and a new student union building were opened 
in the spring of 1968. The new complex is designed not only 
to add additional space to campus facilities but also to blend 
architecturally with the existing pattern of buildings on the 
campus. Traer Hall, a new women's dormitory, was completed 
in 1969. 

The new science center was completed during the fall of 
1971 and houses the science and psychology departments. 

Renovation of Lowry Hall for a new four-floor library facility 
was completed in July of 1972 as was the renovation of Faith 
Hall for a student infirmary and auxiliary services building. 



HISTORY OF OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 13 

Phoebe Hearst Hall was renovated in the fall of 1972 for a 
classroom building. Most of the classes with the exception of 
science and psychology are held in this building located di- 
rectly across from Lupton Hall. 

Lupton Hall, which contains all the administrative offices 
on the lower level, first floor and second floor, was renovated 
in early 1973. Students can find all the administrative offices 
in this building, including the Office of the Dean, Dean of 
Students, Registrar, Financial Aid and Placement, Admissions, 
Business Office (lower level), Development Office (second 
floor), and the President's Office (second floor). 

Future plans for the development of the Oglethorpe phys- 
ical plant include the addition of a Fine Arts Center and addi- 
tions and renovations to the athletic complexes, including 
Hermance Stadium. 

To all of this, it may be finally added, Oglethorpe enjoys 
the great asset of location in Atlanta— one of the great metro- 
politan centers of the South and one of the most rapidly devel- 
oping in the nation. A city blending the graciousness of the 
Old South with the social progress of the New, Atlanta is a key 
center of transportation for the entire Southeast, with excellent 
service by air, rail, and bus; it is also a hub of the modern high- 
way system being built through the region. With a metropolitan 
population of well over a million, an ideal location in the foot- 
hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and a temperate climate 
throughout the year, the city offers many attractions and cul- 
tural opportunities to the Oglethorpe undergraduate as a part 
of his whole development.

ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY 
APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION 

Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students 
from all sections of this country as well as from abroad as 
candidates for degrees. It is the policy of the Admissions 
Committee to select for admission to the University those 
applicants who present the strongest evidence of purpose, 
maturity scholastic ability, and potential for the caliber of col- 
lege work expected at Oglethorpe. In making its judgments, 
the Committee considers the nature of the student's high 
school program, his grades, the recommendations of his coun- 
selors and teachers, and his scores on aptitude tests. 

The candidate for admission as a freshman must present a 
satisfactory high-school program. In addition, he must submit 
satisfactory scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test of the Col- 
lege Entrance Examination Board, or American College Test. 
(Scores of the Florida and Iowa State Tests will be acceptable 
if the applicant has taken one of these as a result of statewide 
policy.) 

It is to the applicant's advantage to take the American Col- 
lege Test, or Scholastic Aptitude Test as early as possible 
during his senior year in high school. Details concerning the 
program can be obtained from high school counselors, or by 
writing the American College Testing Program, P.O. Box 451, 
Iowa City Iowa 52240, or College Entrance Examination Board, 
Box 592, Princeton, N. J. 08540. 

The Oglethorpe application form contains a list of the mate- 
rials which must be submitted by the applicant. No application 
can be considered and acted upon until the items indicated 
have been received. Applications will be considered in order 
of completion, and the applicant will be notified of the decision 
of the Committee on Admissions as soon as action has been 
taken. 

Though the exact date will vary from semester to semester, 
generally the deadline by which admissions will be closed will 
be announced by the University. 



16 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 



ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

The University invites and urges those students who have 
taken the advanced placement examinations of the College En- 
trance Examination Board to submit their scores for possible 
consideration toward college credit. The general policy of Ogle- 
thorpe toward such scores is the following: academic credit will 
begivenintheappropriateareatostudents presenting advanced 
placement grades of 5; exemption but not credit will be given in 
the appropriate area from basic courses for students presenting 
a grade of 4; neither credit nor exemption will be given for 
grades of 3 or 2; maximum credit to be allowed to any student 
for advanced placement scores will be thirty semester hours. 

COLLEGE LEVEL TESTING PROGRAM 

The tests are administered by centers across the nation un- 
der the control of the College Entrance Examination Board, Box 
592, Princeton, New Jersey, 08540. General and subject exam- 
inations are given in a wide and continually enlarging number 
of subjects. 

Norms for the specific tests are set by the chairman of the 
division to which each test pertains, providing that Oglethorpe 
offers such a course. Scores above the credit norm earn credit 
for the course. Scores above the waiver norm exempt the 
student from the course. 

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Applicants for transfer from other recognized institutions of 
higher learning are welcomed at Oglethorpe, provided they are 
in good standing at the institution last attended. They are 
expected to follow regular admissions procedures and will be 
notified of the decision of the Admissions Committee in the 
regular way. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as transfer credit courses 
comparable to the courses we offer which are applicable to a 
liberal arts or a science degree. A two year residence require- 
ment is in effect, but may be reduced to one year by joint decision 
ofthedeanandthechairmanofthedivision in which the student 
will major. Therefore, two years of transfer work is the maximum

given without such decision, but up to three years of transfer 
work may be granted with such decision. Acceptable work must 
be shown on an official transcript and must be completed with a 
grade of "C" or better. 

SPECIAL AND TRANSIENT STUDENTS 

In addition to regular students, a limited number of special 
and transient students will be accepted. 

Special students are defined by the University as those not 
working toward an Oglethorpe degree; they are limited to a 
maximum of five semester courses, after which they must apply 
to the admissions office for a change of status to that of regular 
student or be requested to withdraw from the University 

Transient students may take a maximum of two semesters of 
work here, provided that they secure a letter from the dean of 
their original institution certifying that they are in good standing 
there and that the original institution will accept for transfer 
credit the academic work done by the student at Oglethorpe. 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE 

All correspondence concerning admissions should be ad- 
dressed to the Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe University 
Atlanta, Georgia. After receiving the application form, the appli- 
cant should complete and return it with an application fee of 
$20; this fee is not refundable. 

Entering freshmen must also submit the following: letter of 
reference from a high school counselor or teacher; official 
transcript of high school work; aptitude test scores; statement 
of good health. Transfer students must submit the completed 
application form with the $20.00 application fee (non-refund- 
able), plus the following: letter of reference from the dean of 
the college previously attended; official transcript of each col- 
lege attended; a high school transcript if less than one full year of 
college work has been completed; and a statement of good health. 

When a student has completed the application process, the 
Director of Admissions and the Admissions Committee will 
review the application. Within two weeks, the applicant will be 
notified of the committee's decision. If accepted, the student 
will be required to submit an enrollment deposit to reserve ac- 
commodations for the next term. Dormitory students must submit 
a deposit of $200.00; day students— $1 00.00. While the deposit 



ADMISSION TO THE UNIVERSITY 19 

is not refundable, it is applicable toward tuition and fees as 
stated in the acceptance letter. 

If you have any questions please contact the admissions 
office (404) 233-6864 or (404) 261-1441. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS 

Oglethorpe University provides worthy students with oppor- 
tunities to obtain assistance in financing their education. These 
opportunities are provided under conditions which give a rea- 
sonable guarantee to the applicants and to the University that 
they will go to those persons best able to benefit from them. 

The many sources of revenue made available to students are 
Oglethorpe Merit Scholarships, Basic Educational Opportunity 
Grant, National Direct Student Loans, United Student Aid Fund 
Loans, Educational Opportunity Grants and the College Work 
Study Program. The State of Georgia provides loans, scholar- 
ships and grants to Georgia residents attending Georgia Private 
Institutions. The Tuition Plan is available to parents who prefer 
to pay for tuition and other academic fees on a monthly basis. 

The loan programs mentioned above provide loans at small 
interest rates. Except for loans, all assistance funds granted by 
the Scholarship and Loan Committee are outright gifts to eligible 
students. Other funds are made available to the Committee by 
interested persons, groups and business firms from time to time. 

The Oglethorpe Merit Scholarship Program is unique in that 
scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit rather than 
need and are made available to a great many more students 
than traditional scholarship programs. 

Oglethorpe Merit Scholarships are awarded in amounts of 
$500, $700, $900 and $1 ,000 based on the applicant's Scholas- 
tic Aptitude Test scores. Qualities of citizenship and potential 
for success are also part of the basis for awarding these scholar- 
ships. They are renewable annually based on the student's 
grade point average for the previous year. 

The J. MACK ROBINSON SCHOLARSHIP is an endowed 
scholarship awarded annually by Atlanta businessman J. Mack 
Robinson to a deserving student who meets the general qualifi- 
cations of the Oglethorpe Merit Scholarship Program. Prefer- 
ence is given to students majoring in Business Administration. 

For further information regarding application procedures 
and qualifications contact the Director of Financial Aid and 
Placement, Oglethorpe University.

ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The University recognizes attendance at classes as the re- 
sponsibility of the student. Students are held accountable for 
all work missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is 
determined by each instructor for his own courses. Such reg- 
ulations are published and distributed by each professor at the 
beginning of each term. 

GRADES 

A letter grading system is used. The range of A-D represents 
passing work; any grade below D is regarded as a failure. Stu- 
dents withdrawing from a course before the end of the semester 
are given a "W" or a "WF" depending upon the circumstances 
of the withdrawal. Students who do not meet all the require- 
ments of a course are given an "I" (incomplete) at the end of 
the following semester. If the requirements are met by mid- 
semester of the next enrolled term, the "I" is replaced by a 
regular grade. If they are not met within this time, the grade 
automaticallybecomesan"F"Gradestructureand quality points 
are as follows: 

A Superior 4.0 

B Good 3.0 

C Satisfactory 2.0 

D Passing 1.0 

F Failure 0.0 

FA Failure: Excessive absences 0.0 

W Withdrawn 0.0 

WF Withdrawn Failing 0.0 

I Incomplete 0.0 

P Passing (used in special cases) 

MINIMUM ACADEMIC AVERAGE 

Though the grade of D is regarded as passing, the University 
believes that students, in order to graduate, must exhibit more 
ability than that required by the lowest passing mark. Therefore, 
a student, in order to graduate from Oglethorpe, must compile 
an over-all minimum average of 2.2. No student will be allowed 
to graduate unless this minimum is met. 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 21 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of min- 
imum averages has been established. Freshmen are required 
to maintain a cumulative average of at least 1 .8 in their course 
work; sophomores of at least 2.0 and juniors and seniors of at 
least 2.2. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Minimum requirements for graduation consist of the follow- 
ing: forty semester courses (or their equivalent for transfer 
students) totaling at least 1 20 hours; a cumulative grade average 
of at least 2.2; and the last four semesters to be spent as a 
registered student at Oglethorpe. All graduating Seniors must 
file application for diploma with the University Registrar. 

DEGREES 

Oglethorpe offers six degrees to those meeting the neces- 
sary requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, 
Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, Bachelor of Science 
in Education and Bachelor of Business Administration, and 
Masters Degree in Elementary Education. Under the Bachelor 
of Arts, majors programs are offered in the following areas: 
Business Administration, Economics, Elementary Education, 
Secondary Education (with concentrations available in English, 
General Studies, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies), 
English, German, History, Philosophy Political Studies, Psy- 
chology, Sociology, and Social Work. Under the Bachelor of 
Science, majors programs are offered in the following areas: 
Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. 

Under certain conditions, it is also possible for a student to 
receive a degree from Oglethorpe under "professional option:' 
Through this arrangement and in accord with regulations of the 
University, the student may transfer to a recognized professional 
institution— such as law school, dental school, or medical school 
—at the end of his junior year and then, after one year in the 
professional school, receive his degree from Oglethorpe. Stu- 
dents interested in this possibility should consult closely with 
their advisors to make certain that all conditions are met. 

PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Freshmen who fail to maintain a cumulative average of at 
least 1.8, sophomores of at least 2.0, and juniors and seniors 



22 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

of at least 2.2, are placed on probation for the following term. 
If during that term they do not substantially improve their scho- 
lastic average, they will be dismissed from the University. 

First semester freshmen receiving grades of less than D in 
all subjects will be dismissed, as will students in the sophomore, 
junior, and senior classes who fail to maintain at least a 1.0 
cumulative average. 

All students on Academic Probation at the end of the spring 
semester must attend at least one session of summer school 
unless exempted for cause by the Dean of the College. 

STUDENT'S CLASSIFICATION 

For administrative and other official and extra-official pur- 
poses, students are classified according to the number of semester 
hours successfully completed. Classification is as follows: 

0—30 hours— Freshman 61-90— Junior 

31— 60 hours -Sophomore 91 above— Senior 

NORMAL ACADEMIC LOAD 

A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of no 
less than four courses each semester, but generally 5 courses 
are taken, giving the student a total of 1 2 to 1 6 semester hours 
each term. Regular students in the day classes are expected 
to carry a normal load and to pay for a full schedule of courses. 
Students other than transient and night students taking a re- 
duced load will pay the rate published by the University. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

Students who earn a minimum average of 3.3 or better in 
any given semester except the summer term for an academic 
load of at least five courses are given the distinction of being 
placed on the Dean's List. 

DEGREES WITH HONORS 

Degrees with honors are awarded as follows: for a cumulative 
average of 3.5, the degree cum laude; for a cumulative average 
3.7, the degree magna cum laude; for a cumulative average of 
3.9, the degree summa cum laude.

STUDENT LIFE 

ORIENTATION 

At the beginning of each semester, new students will be 
involved in an orientation program, under the general super- 
vision of the Dean of Students. Orientation activities are planned 
to introduce the student to both academic and social life at 
Oglethorpe. Several traditional activities are also planned so 
that the parents of new students can become familiar with the 
personnel and purpose of the University. Orientation group 
leaders from among the upperclassmen serve as guides and 
counselors during the period. During the orientation program, 
the student is assigned to a faculty advisor who aids him in 
planning his academic program. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL CONDUCT AND 

RESPONSIBILITY: 

THE ROLE OF THE COLLEGE ANDTHE STUDENT 

Oglethorpe University takes the position that it is deeply 
concerned with the total development of the individual as a 
competent student and as a highly responsible citizen both 
on the campus and in the community. The University's high 
standards of personal conduct and responsibility are an ex- 
pression of its confidence in each student's potential as a 
human being; however, each student must be as willing to ac- 
cept adult consequences as he is insistent upon being granted 
adult freedom of decision and action. 

Unfortunately, neither knowledge and wisdom nor knowl- 
edge and integrity are synonomous; therefore, a firm grasp 
of academic studies will not in itself be an assurance that a 
student is profiting fully from his college experience. 

Individuals who do not desire to accept either this view of 
the University's responsibility, or live by its regulations, should 
not apply to the University for admission. Accepted students 
who demonstrate their unwillingness to meet standards will be 
terminated from the University. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL DRESS AND GROOMING 

Institutions of higher education have their own personal- 
ities; hence, they have the freedom to select the standards 
they want for students who voluntarily elect to attend. When a 
student voluntarily elects to attend Oglethorpe University, a 



26 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

private institution, he represents not only himself but also the 
student body, the University, and in some measure, the commu- 
nity in which the University has such deep roots. 

The University takes the position that all students are ex- 
pected to dress and groom as mature, responsible adults, as 
ladies and gentlemen. Dress and grooming are expected to be 
appropriate to the occasion and in keeping with the positions 
of leadership and responsibility in society. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES 

All resident students are required to subscribe to the Stu- 
dent Health and Insurance Plan provided by the University. 

The University maintains a small campus infirmary staffed 
by a registered nurse. The infirmary operates on a regular 
schedule, and provides basic first aid service and limited med- 
ical assistance for students covered by the student in- 
surance plan. 

A physician visits the infirmary twice a week to make gen- 
eral diagnosis and treatment. In the event additional or major 
medical care is required, the student patient will be referred 
to medical specialists and hospitals in the area with which the 
health service maintains a working relationship. 

When it is determined that a student's physical or emotional 
health is detrimental to his academic studies, group-living 
situation, or other relationships at the University or in the 
community, he will be requested to withdraw. Re-admission 
to the University will be contingent upon acceptable verifica- 
tion that the student is ready to return. The final decision will 
rest with the University. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES 

Valuable educational experiences may be gained through 
active participation in approved campus activities and organiza- 
tions. All students are encouraged to participate in one or 
more organizations and to the extent that such involvement 
does not deter them from high academic achievement. Stu- 
dents are especially encouraged to join professional organiza- 
tions associated with their interests and goals.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS 

Oglethorpe University provides worthy students with oppor- 
tunities to obtain assistance in financing their education. These 
opportunities are provided under conditions which give a rea- 
sonable guarantee to the applicants and to the University that 
they will go to those persons best able to benefit from them. 

The many sources of revenue made available to students are 
Oglethorpe Merit Scholarships, Basic Educational Opportunity 
Grant, National Direct Student Loans, United Student Aid Fund 
Loans, Educational Opportunity Grants and the College Work 
Study Program. The State of Georgia provides loans, scholar- 
ships and grants to Georgia residents attending Georgia Private 
Institutions. The Tuition Plan is available to parents who prefer 
to pay for tuition and other academic fees on a monthly basis. 

The loan programs mentioned above provide loans at small 
interest rates. Except for loans, all assistance funds granted by 
the Scholarship and Loan Committee are outright gifts to eligible 
students. Other funds are made available to the Committee by 
interested persons, groups and business firms from time to time. 

The Oglethorpe Merit Scholarship Program is unique in that 
scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit rather than 
need and are made available to a great many more students 
than traditional scholarship programs. 

Oglethorpe Merit Scholarships are awarded in amounts of 
$500, $700, $900 and $1 ,000 based on the applicant's Scholas- 
tic Aptitude Test scores. Qualities of citizenship and potential 
for success are also part of the basis for awarding these scholar- 
ships. They are renewable annually based on the student's 
grade point average for the previous year. 

The J. MACK ROBINSON SCHOLARSHIP is an endowed 
scholarship awarded annually by Atlanta businessman J. Mack 
Robinson to a deserving student who meets the general qualifi- 
cations of the Oglethorpe Merit Scholarship Program. Prefer- 
ence is given to students majoring in Business Administration. 

For further information regarding application procedures 
and qualifications contact the Director of Financial Aid and 
Placement, Oglethorpe University.

ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

CLASS ATTENDANCE 

The University recognizes attendance at classes as the re- 
sponsibility of the student. Students are held accountable for 
all work missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is 
determined by each instructor for his own courses. Such reg- 
ulations are published and distributed by each professor at the 
beginning of each term. 

GRADES 

A letter grading system is used. The range of A-D represents 
passing work; any grade below D is regarded as a failure. Stu- 
dents withdrawing from a course before the end of the semester 
are given a "W" or a "\NF" depending upon the circumstances 
of the withdrawal. Students who do not meet all the require- 
ments of a course are given an "I" (incomplete) at the end of 
the following semester. If the requirements are met by mid- 
semester of the next enrolled term, the "I" is replaced by a 
regular grade. If they are not met within this time, the grade 
automatically becomesan "F" Grade structure and quality points 
are as follows: 



A

4.0

MINIMUM ACADEMIC AVERAGE 

Though the grade of D is regarded as passing, the University 
believes that students, in order to graduate, must exhibit more 
ability than that required by the lowest passing mark. Therefore, 
a student, in order to graduate from Oglethorpe, must compile 
an over-all minimum average of 2.2. No student will be allowed 
to graduate unless this minimum is met. 



ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 21 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of min- 
imum averages has been established. Freshmen are required 
to maintain a cumulative average of at least 1 .8 in their course 
work; sophomores of at least 2.0 and juniors and seniors of at 
least 2.2. 

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

Minimum requirements for graduation consist of the follow- 
ing: forty semester courses (or their equivalent for transfer 
students) totaling at least 120 hours; a cumulative grade average 
of at least 2.2; and the last four semesters to be spent as a 
registered student at Oglethorpe. All graduating Seniors must 
file application for diploma with the University Registrar. 

DEGREES 

Oglethorpe offers six degrees to those meeting the neces- 
sary requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, 
Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, Bachelor of Science 
in Education and Bachelor of Business Administration, and 
Masters Degree in Elementary Education. Under the Bachelor 
of Arts, majors programs are offered in the following areas: 
Business Administration, Economics, Elementary Education, 
Secondary Education (with concentrations available in English, 
General Studies, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies), 
English, German, History, Philosophy, Political Studies, Psy- 
chology, Sociology, and Social Work. Under the Bachelor of 
Science, majors programs are offered in the following areas: 
Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. 

Under certain conditions, it is also possible for a student to 
receive a degree from Oglethorpe under "professional option:' 
Through this arrangement and in accord with regulations of the 
University the student may transfer to a recognized professional 
institution— such as law school, dental school, or medical school 
—at the end of his junior year and then, after one year in the 
professional school, receive his degree from Oglethorpe. Stu- 
dents interested in this possibility should consult closely with 
their advisors to make certain that all conditions are met. 

PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Freshmen who fail to maintain a cumulative average of at 
least 1.8, sophomores of at least 2.0, and juniors and seniors 



22 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

of at least 2.2, are placed on probation for the following term. 
If during that term they do not substantially improve their scho- 
lastic average, they will be dismissed from the University. 

First semester freshmen receiving grades of less than D in 
all subjects will be dismissed, as will students in the sophomore, 
junior, and senior classes who fail to maintain at least a 1.0 
cumulative average. 

All students on Academic Probation at the end of the spring 
semester must attend at least one session of summer school 
unless exempted for cause by the Dean of the College. 

STUDENT'S CLASSIFICATION 

For administrative and other official and extra-official pur- 
poses, students are classified according to the number of semester 
hours successfully completed. Classification is as follows: 

0—30 hours —Freshman 61-90— Junior 

31— 60 hours —Sophomore 91 above— Senior 

NORMAL ACADEMIC LOAD 

A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of no 
less than four courses each semester, but generally 5 courses 
are taken, giving the student a total of 1 2 to 1 6 semester hours 
each term. Regular students in the day classes are expected 
to carry a normal load and to pay for a full schedule of courses. 
Students other than transient and night students taking a re- 
duced load will pay the rate published by the University. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

Students who earn a minimum average of 3.3 or better in 
any given semester except the summer term for an academic 
load of at least five courses are given the distinction of being 
placed on the Dean's List. 

DEGREES WITH HONORS 

Degrees with honors are awarded as follows: for a cumulative 
average of 3.5, the degree cum laude; for a cumulative average 
3.7, the degree magna cum laude; for a cumulative average of 
3.9, the degree summa cum laude.

STUDENT LIFE 

ORIENTATION 

At the beginning of each semester, new students will be 
involved in an orientation program, under the general super- 
vision of the Dean of Students. Orientation activities are planned 
to introduce the student to both academic and social life at 
Oglethorpe. Several traditional activities are also planned so 
that the parents of new students can become familiar with the 
personnel and purpose of the University. Orientation group 
leaders from among the upperclassmen serve as guides and 
counselors during the period. During the orientation program, 
the student is assigned to a faculty advisor who aids him in 
planning his academic program. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL CONDUCT AND 

RESPONSIBILITY: 

THE ROLE OFTHE COLLEGE ANDTHE STUDENT 

Oglethorpe University takes the position that it is deeply 
concerned with the total development of the individual as a 
competent student and as a highly responsible citizen both 
on the campus and in the community. The University's high 
standards of personal conduct and responsibility are an ex- 
pression of its confidence in each student's potential as a 
human being; however, each student must be as willing to ac- 
cept adult consequences as he is insistent upon being granted 
adult freedom of decision and action. 

Unfortunately, neither knowledge and wisdom nor knowl- 
edge and integrity are synonomous; therefore, a firm grasp 
of academic studies will not in itself be an assurance that a 
student is profiting fully from his college experience. 

Individuals who do not desire to accept either this view of 
the University's responsibility, or live by its regulations, should 
not apply to the University for admission. Accepted students 
who demonstrate their unwillingness to meet standards will be 
terminated from the University. 

STANDARDS OF PERSONAL DRESS AND GROOMING 

Institutions of higher education have their own personal- 
ities; hence, they have the freedom to select the standards 
they want for students who voluntarily elect to attend. When a 
student voluntarily elects to attend Oglethorpe University, a 



26 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

private institution, he represents not only himself but also the 
student body, the University, and in some measure, the commu- 
nity in which the University has such deep roots. 

The University takes the position that all students are ex- 
pected to dress and groom as mature, responsible adults, as 
ladies and gentlemen. Dress and grooming are expected to be 
appropriate to the occasion and in keeping with the positions 
of leadership and responsibility in society. 

STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES 

All resident students are required to subscribe to the Stu- 
dent Health and Insurance Plan provided by the University. 

The University maintains a small campus infirmary staffed 
by a registered nurse. The infirmary operates on a regular 
schedule, and provides basic first aid service and limited med- 
ical assistance for students covered by the student in- 
surance plan. 

A physician visits the infirmary twice a week to make gen- 
eral diagnosis and treatment. In the event additional or major 
medical care is required, the student patient will be referred 
to medical specialists and hospitals in the area with which the 
health service maintains a working relationship. 

When it is determined that a student's physical or emotional 
health is detrimental to his academic studies, group-living 
situation, or other relationships at the University or in the 
community, he will be requested to withdraw. Re-admission 
to the University will be contingent upon acceptable verifica- 
tion that the student is ready to return. The final decision will 
rest with the University. 

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES 

Valuable educational experiences may be gained through 
active participation in approved campus activities and organiza- 
tions. All students are encouraged to participate in one or 
more organizations and to the extent that such involvement 
does not deter them from high academic achievement. Stu- 
dents are especially encouraged to join professional organiza- 
tions associated with their interests and goals.

GENERAL INFORMATION 



SEMESTER SYSTEM 

Oglethorpe University operates under the semester system 
during the academic year. Two summer sessions of five weeks 
each, plus a ten week session in the evening make up the 
summer schedule. 

EVENING PROGRAM 

As a service to the community, the University offers an even- 
ing program covering three terms per year: one during each se- 
mester and one during the summer. Classes meet two nights 
each week (Monday and Wednesday; Tuesday and Thursday) 
with three class periods each night. To qualify for the special 
tuition rate given to evening students, a student must take all 
his courses in the evening. A student taking any course during 
the day will not be classified as an evening student. 

In addition to other major programs listed in this catalogue, 
a major in General Studies is offered. This program requires 
completion of the core requirements and a sufficient number of 
additional course hours to complete the total prescribed for a 
degree. The degree granted will be the Bachelor of Arts in 
General Studies. Because of its flexibility, the General Studies 
program enables the student to concentrate in any selected 
program offered by the University. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

The Department of Continuing Education acts as a commu- 
nity service in providing adult non-credit courses for interested 
people in the community. It is Oglethorpe's desire to insure 
that its academic and physical facilities are made available to 
all mature adults who show a genuine interest in academics.

ACCOUNTING 

The primary objective of the program in accounting is to 
prepare men and women for responsible accounting positions 
in industry, government, and public accounting. The field of 
accountancy is dynamic and challenging. Therefore, prepara-

ganizations. Beyond this core, the student may choose to study

THE GRADUATE DIVISION 

ADMISSION 

The Graduate Division is organized as one of the six academic 
divisions of Oglethorpe University. It was created in 1970 upon 
receipt from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools 
of initial approval for Oglethorpe to once again offer courses 
leading to the master's degree. Under this authorization, the 
Graduate Division offers the Master of Arts degree in elemen- 
tary education. 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide well- 
qualified students with the opportunity to obtain the first gradu- 
ate degree, to provide members of the teaching profession 
with the opportunity to enhance their competencies and knowl- 
edge in the area of elementary education, including the oppor- 
tunity for those teachers not desiring a graduate degree to 
enhance their knowledge and skills. Inherent in the guiding 
philosophy is the assumption that graduate study includes 
more than the passing of prescribed courses and the meeting 
of minimum requirements. Any student who receives a graduate 
degree must possess a broad knowledge of the literature of 
his field of study, be capable of sustained study, exhibit the 
power of independent thinking, and possess reasonable knowl- 
edge of the techniques of research. 

All graduate work is administered by the Graduate Division, 
which is governed by the Graduate Council under the policies 
of the university. The Graduate Council is the policy-making 
body chosen from the graduate faculty and administration, 
under the leadership of the chairman of the Graduate Division. 

Requirements— Upon recommendation of the chairman of 
the Graduate Council and approval of the Graduate Council, 
a person holding a bachelor's degree from an accredited col- 
lege or university may be admitted to the Graduate Division. 
In addition to general requirements prescribed, the applicant 
must submit transcripts of all previous work completed, sat- 
isfactory scores on the Graduate Record Examination (Aptitude 
Test), two recommendations (form provided) from previous 
colleges attended and/or employers, and, when deemed nec- 
essary, take validating examinations or preparatory work. Can- 
didates not previously prepared for teaching must meet 
requirements for first professional certification before comple- 
ting requirements for the master's degree.

Procedure— Application forms may be obtained from the 
Office of Admissions of the University. Completed forms should 
be returned to the Office of Admissions as soon as possible 
but at least twenty days prior to the term in which the applicant 
expects to enroll. These forms should be accompanied by a 
$20.00 application fee (non-refundable). All material (completed 
forms, fee, transcripts, and test scores) should be sent directly 
to the Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, 
Georgia 30319. To insure proper consideration, all documents 
must be on hand at least twenty days prior to the proposed time 
of enrollment. All documents become the property of the uni- 
versity and will not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate 
Division in the term indicated on his application, he should 
notify the Office of Admissions of his plans and indicate a new 
date of entrance, if applicable. Otherwise, the original admis- 
sion will be cancelled, the file discontinued, and a new applica- 
tion will be required for admission at a later date. 

Admission to the Graduate Division does not imply ultimate 
acceptance as a candidate for an advanced degree. For admis- 
sion to candidacy, see the section ADMISSION TO 
CANDIDACY. 

Information concerning the administration of the Graduate 
Record Examination may be obtained from the Office of Ad- 
missions or by writing: Education Testing Service, Princeton, 
New Jersey 08540. 

Types of admission— Students may be admitted to the Grad- 
uate Division under any one of the following classifications: 

1. Regular. A student who has a cumulative grade point 
average of at least 2.8 on a 4.0 scale, satisfactory scores 
on the GRE and the recommendation of the chairman 
of the Graduate Division, and who has completed all 
prerequisites required for admission may be admitted 
as a regular graduate student. 

2. Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of 
the standards required for admission as a regular stu- 
dent or a qualified senior may be admitted under condi- 
tions specified at the time of admission by the chairman 
of the Graduate Council and approved by the Graduate 
Council. The provisionally admitted student may apply 
to the chairman of the Graduate Division for reclass- 
ification when the conditions have been met. Graduate 
courses completed by the provisional student may be 



96 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

counted toward a degree after the student has been 
reclassified as a regular student. 

A senior within six semester hours of completing re- 
quirements for the bachelor's degree may be permitted 
to enroll in courses for graduate credit provided that: 

(1) he has the permission of the head of the education 
department and the chairman of the Graduate Division, 

(2) he is otherwise qualified for admission to graduate 
study except for the degree, and (3) his total load in a 
semester would not exceed fifteen semester hours. 
Under no circumstances may a course be used for both 
graduate and undergraduate credit. 

Other 

1 . Transient. A student in good standing in another recog- 
nized graduate school who wishes to enroll in the 
Graduate Division of Oglethorpe University and who 
plans to return thereafter to the former institution may 
be admitted as a transient graduate student. In lieu of 
full transcripts and regular applications he must submit 
a transient student application form completed by his 
graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for 
credit. Any student admitted on this basis should under- 
stand that his registration terminates as soon as he has 
completed the work authorized by the institution from 
which he is seeking a degree. If he later elects to seek 
a degree from Oglethorpe University, he must make 
formal application for admission and may petition to 
have credit earned as a transient student applied toward 
the degree at Oglethorpe University. 

2. Unclassified. A degree holder who is not a prospective 
candidate for a degree at Oglethorpe University, such 
as a person seeking to meet certification requirements 
(not applicable until final accreditation received) or local 
school requirements, may be admitted without present- 
ing test scores or recommendations. Credit earned by 
a student in this category may be counted toward the 
degree only with consent of the Graduate Council. 

REGISTRATION 

Procedure— Registration dates for each term are listed on 
page 3 of this publication. Several weeks before the beginning 
of each term, students may obtain from the Registrar's Office 
a schedule of classes for that particular term. 



97 

Courses and Loads — Courses numbered 6000 are open 
only to graduate students. Arts and Sciences courses with 4000 
numbers carry either undergraduate or graduate credit; grad- 
uate students, however, are expected to do more extensive 
reading, prepare additional reports, and/or produce papers or 
other projects requiring more extensive research. 

The maximum course load for any graduate student is 
fifteen credit hours persemesteror six credit hours in a summer 
term. Any student serving as a graduate assistant must carry a 
reduced load. A person working more than thirty hours per 
week normally may not register for more than six hours credit 
per semester. In all cases, the graduate student is urged to 
register for only the number of hours which he can success- 
fully complete. 

ADVISEMENT 

Upon admission to the Graduate Division, each student is 
assigned to a member of the graduate faculty in education who 
serves as advisor and guides the student in planning his program 
of study. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

The quality of work of courses taken in the graduate program 
is indicated by the marks A, B, C, and F. Grades of I and W are 
reserved for special cases. Listed below are requirements for 
each of these grades: 

A— Excellent, with four quality points for each credit hour 
B— Good, with three quality points for each credit hour 
C— Poor, with two quality points for each credit hour 
F— Unsatisfactory work or unofficial withdrawal 
I — Incomplete may be used if the student, because of un- 
usual circumstances, is unable to complete the required 
work in the prescribed time interval, provided he was 
doing satisfactory work. Such a grade must be removed 
by the completion of the work within one year or the I 
becomes an F. 
W— Official withdrawal may be permitted if the student's 
progress is interrupted by illness or other emergencies 
which prevent his pursuing any course for which he is 
registered. 

ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

Candidates for the master's degree must meet the following 
academic standards: 



98 OGLETHORPE UNIVERSITY 

1 . The student's overall grade point average for work sub- 
mitted in a graduate program must be 3.0 or higher. 

2. If, in any case, the candidate fails to maintain satis- 
factory academic standards, his record shall be reviewed 
by the Graduate Council to determine whether or not 
he shall be allowed to continue in a graduate program. 

ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY 

Application for admission to candidacy would be given or 
refused following an examination of the overall work of the 
student and careful review of his completed work at Oglethorpe. 
Application for the Master of Arts degree in elementary educa- 
tion must be filed with the chairman of the Graduate Division 
after the student has six to twelve semester hours of graduate 
study at Oglethorpe University. Admission to candidacy would 
be given or refused following an examination of the overall 
record at Oglethorpe of the student and careful review of his 
completed work. Notice of action taken on application for ad- 
mission to candidacy would be given in writing to the student 
and to his advisor. The student seeking the Master of Arts 
degree in elementary education must furnish certification by 
the chairman of the Education Department that he is eligible 
for first professional certification or he must include appropriate 
make-up work in his program. 

GRADUATION 

Required Hours— The program leading to the Master of Arts 
degree in elementary education will require completion of 
thirty-six semester hours of course credit beyond the bachelor's 
degree as a minimum requirement. The following minimum 
requirements must be included in the credit earned: 

Foundations of Education— nine semester hours 
Elementary Teaching Field courses— fifteen semester hours 

to include 12 semester hours required in elementary 

education. 

Residence— At least twenty-one semester hours of graduate 
work must be completed on campus. 

Time Limit— In any graduate program all work (including the 
comprehensive examination) must be completed within a six 
year period. It is expected that the student will complete his 
program with reasonable continuity. Students called into mil- 
itary service may apply for an extension of time. 



99 

Transfer, Extension, Correspondence Credit — A maximum 
of six semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred 
from another accredited institution subject to the following 
conditions: (1) transfer credit will not be considered prior to 
admission to candidacy; (2) work already applied toward another 
degree cannot be accepted; (3) work must have been com- 
pleted within the six year period allowed for the completion 
of degree requirements; (4) work must have been applicable 
toward a graduate degree at the institution where the credit 
was earned; (5) work offered for transfer must have the approval 
of the Graduate Division; and (6) acceptance of the transfer 
credit does not reduce the residence requirement. 

Under no circumstances may credit earned through corre- 
spondence work be applied toward satisfaction of degree 
requirements. 

COMPREHENSIVE-FINAL EXAMINATION 

A Comprehensive-final examination is required of all candi- 
dates for the master's degree at or about the time all other 
requirements have been met. The following regulations govern 
the administration of the comprehensive examination: 

1. The student must be registered when he takes the 
examination. 

2. The examinations are developed and administered by 
such members of the Graduate Faculty as may be ap- 
pointed by the chairman of the Graduate Division. 

3. The examination covers all work prescribed by the 
student's program of work, including transferred work. 

TUITION AND FEES 

Graudate students are charged at the rate of $50.00 per 
semester hour. An application fee (non-refundable) of $20.00 
must accompany the application. 

An application for degree must be made at least two months 
prior to commencement at which time a $15.00 diploma fee 
is due. 

WITHDRAWALS 

Students who find it necessary to drop courses or change 
courses must secure an approval drop slip from the Registrar. 
Refunds on withdrawals are made only to students who have 
invested in the tuition guarantee fund. No other exceptions 
or provisions are made for refunds.
