Over a quarter of a century ago, Philip Weltner, then president of 
Oglethorpe University, wrote an introduction to the catalog in which 
he expressed his ideas about the aims and purposes of an educated 
man, and the aims and purposes of the college. 

The Oglethorpe idea is to forge the strongest possible link between 
the "academic" and "practical," between "human understanding" 
and "know-how," between "culture" and "proficiency," between 
past and present. We are persuaded that there is ultimately no 
contradiction between the concepts represented 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, including human nature and 
human associations; to leairn to take account of these not only for 
their own sake but for growth, guidance and direction for himself 
and others; to express his deepest individuality in the work or calling 
most appropriate to his talents; and to discover his proper place, role, 
and function in the complex 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 institution 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 people, 
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 mem displays the same traits. The 
difference is in degree rather than kind. 

Whereas it is usual for people to understand their fellows, how 
much wider should be the sympathies of the educated man! His 
contacts go beyond the living and embrace the seers of all the ages, 
who as his companions should inform his mind and enlarge his vision. 

Never before have people been so alive to the necessity of 
mastering rather than being mastered by the economic and scientific 
forces at work in our world. Creative brains and individual initiative, 
tempered by a strong sense of social responsibility, cire the only 


sources of payrolls compajbible with a free society, an 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 

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 cill 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 education, in order to be true to itself, must be 
a progressive experience for the 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, but is a 
spiral which Eilways 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 promotes 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 for and give scope to 
diversified talents in preparation for varied careers. But this much we 
all have in common: each m£in has to live with himself and all have to 
live with their fellows. Living in community, with human under- 
standing, involves arts in which we are £ill equally concerned. 

Throughout the essay there is the pervasive theme that the 
educated person takes his education out with him, and involves his 
knowledge and understanding in his contacts with others, in his 
private life, in his social life, and in his C£ireer. A good education is 
one that pervades a life in all its facets, and is not just, like fancy 
china, "good for Sundays only." 

The post- World War II world has speeded up and changed some of 
its values, but the Oglethorpe idea has not changed. We still feel that 
the aim of a good education is, as Dr. Weltner put it, to enable our 
students to live "in commimity, with human understanding." Our 
own community is a small one, but small for more than just the 
pleasures that can ensue when everybody knows everybody else. Our 
smallness enables us to work together as a unit, to achieve a unity of 
goals, and to grow together in our pursuit of them. At Oglethorpe 


one's major or one's career goal is of less importance than one's 
membership in an academic community dedicated to the intelligent 
pursuit of the means to a better world. Our basic core of required 
courses does more than give the student a general overview of the 
world in which he lives; it gives him a common background with his 
fellows, both in the student body and the faculty, out of which, like 
a fertile soil, the Oglethorpe community, ever changing, ever 
improving, can grow and prosper. 



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 leadership and, at the same time, 
gathered about him a faculty of unusual ability, at least two of 
whom would achieve real distinction: 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 greatest intellectual 
impulse of his life had come to him during his college days at 

But the life and service of the school were suddenly cut short in 
the 1860's 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 seemingly final, time. 

But four decades later, thanks largely to the determined energy 
and vision of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, the school was revived, chsirtered 
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 by members of the classes of 1860 
and 1961; symbolicEilly, 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 campus radio station as early as 1931, 


and the completion in 1940 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 approach to under- 
graduate education called the "Oglethorpe Idea." 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 towaird 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 
or synagogue of their own choosing, formal support from church 
bodies was discontinued. Today Oglethorpe stands as a wholly 
private and non-sectarian institution of higher learning. 

The college has also developed a program of physical expansion to 
keep pace with its academic growth. Five new dormitories and a new 
student center building were opened in the spring of 1968. The new 
complex was 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. 

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

Lupton Hall, which contains all the administrative offices, was 
renovated in early 1973. Students can find the Office of the Dean, 
Registrar, Financial Aid, and Admissions Office on the first floor; the 
Business Office on the lower level; and the Office of University 
Advancement, Alumni Office, Dean of Students, Office of Counseling 
Services and Career Development, Dean of Administration, and the 
President's Office on the second floor. 

Future plans for the development of the Oglethorpe physical plant 
include the addition of a Fine Arts Center and additions 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 metropolitan centers 
of the South and one of the most rapidly developing 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 highway system being built through the region. 
With a metropolitan population of nearly two million, an ideal 
location in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and a 
temperate climate throughout the year, the city offers many 
attractions and cultural opportunities to the Oglethorpe under- 
graduate as a part of his whole development.

Lupton Hall, built in 1920 and named in honor of John Thomas 
Lupton, was one of the three original buildings on the present 
Oglethorpe University campus. It was renovated in 1973, and 
contains all administrative offices and an auditorium with seating for 
three hundred and fifty persons. The University Business Office is 
located on the lower level of Lupton Hall; the office of the Dean, the 
Registrar, and Admissions and Financial Aid are on the first floor; 
the Office of the President, Dean of Administration, Dean of 
Students, Office of Counseling Services and Career Development, 
Office of University Advancement and Alumni Office are on the 
second floor. The third floor is the site of the E.L.S. Language 
Center, which was opened in September, 1975. Classrooms, offices, 
and a lounge occupy the third floor area. The language laboratory 
and the reading laboratory are located on the second floor. 

The original cast bell carillon in the Lupton tower has been 
re-fitted and re-hung. It now has forty-two bells which chime the 
quarter hours and a daily afternoon concert. 


Phoebe Hearst Hall was built in 1915 and is in the neo-Gothic 
architecture that dominates the Oglethorpe Campus. The building is 
named in honor of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, the mother of William 
Randolph Hearst, Sr, 

It was renovated in the fall of 1972 for a clcissroom and faculty 
office building. Most classes with the exception of science and 
psychology are held in this building which is located directly across 
from Lupton Hall. Additiongil renovation for a student-faculty 
lounge and an expgmded computer center was completed in 1975. 

The dominant feature of the building is the beautiful Great Hall, 
the site of many traditional and historic events at Oglethorpe. Also 
located in the ground floor of the building is the much-publicized 
Crypt of Civilization. This time capsule was sealed on May 28, 1940, 
with many components of American culture sealed within. It is not 
to be opened until May 28, 8113. 


This new science center was completed during the fall of 1971 and 
houses the science and psychology departments. Laboratories for 
biology, chemistry and physics, and modern lecture hgQls, are located 
in the building. Goslin Hall was named in honor of Dr. Roy N. 


Goslin, Professor of Physics and senior member of the Oglethorpe 
faculty, for his many years of dedicated work for the college and for 
the nation. 


Built in 1969, Traer Hall is a three story women's residence which 
houses 168 students. Construction of the building was made possible 
through the generosity of the late Wayne S. Traer, Oglethorpe 
University alumnus of the Class of 1928. These accommodations 
provide for semi-private rooms. All rooms open onto a central plaza 
courtyard. As all buildings on the Oglethorpe campus, Traer Hall is 
completely air-conditioned. 


Goodman Hall was built in 1956 and renovated in 1970, when it 
was transformed from a men's into a women's residence hall. The 
building contains twenty-seven rooms and is used to house Junior 
and Senior women students. Private rooms are available. Located 
adjacent to Goodman Hall are three newly resurfaced tennis courts 


Five men's residence halls are situated around the upper quad- 
rangle. Two of the buildings were named for former Oglethorpe 
presidents, Dr. Philip Weltner and Dr. Thorn well Jacobs. Constructed 
in 1968, these buildings were refurbished and carpeted in 1975. The 
three story structures house all male resident students. 


The campus infirmary is housed on the upper level of Faith 
HeQI, together with art studios and lecture rooms. The lower level 
of Faith Hall houses the maintenance facility. The building was 
renovated in 1972 to include overnight facilities for students in 
the infirmary. 


The Dorough Field House is the site of intercollegiate basketball, 
intramural and recreational sports, and large campus gatherings such 
£is concerts and commencement exercises. Built in 1960, this 


structure is scheduled for major renovation in 1976. The building is 
named for the late R. E. (Red) Borough, a former Trustee of the 


The most recent renovation and construction on the campus is the 
addition of a six-lane, all-weather, reslite track which was dedicated 
in May, 1975. Also completed in 1975 was the resurfacing of 
Anderson Field in historic Hermance Stadium. These improvements 
provide modem facilities for the baseball, soccer and track teams. 
The intramural football and softball teams use these new facilities as 

In the Fall of 1976, a new athletic field was dedicated for the 
exclusive use of the intramural program. This additional field is 
located adjacent to the men's residence hall complex. 




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 college work expected at Oglethorpe. In 
making its judgments, the Committee considers the nature of the 
students' high school program, their grades, the recommendations of 
their counselors and teachers, and their scores on aptitude tests. 

The candidates for admission as freshmen must present a 
satisfactory high school program. In addition, the student must 
submit satisfactory scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of 
the College Entrance Examination Board, or American College 
Testing Program Assessment (ACT). (Scores of the Florida and Iowa 
State Tests will be acceptable if the applicant has t£iken one of these 
as a result of statewide policy.) 

It is to the applicant's advantage to take the American College 
Test or Scholastic Aptitude Test as early as possible during the 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 materials 
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. 


There are two testing programs through which students may earn 
credit or exemption for required or elective courses. These two 
programs are described below. Any student who has questions about 
these examinations should consult the Registrar. Up to sixty 
semester hours of credit will be accepted through these programs. 


Within this testing program are two categories. The General 
Examinations cover the areas of English Composition, Humanities, 
Mathematics, Natural Science, and Social Science — History. 


A maximum of thirty semester hours can be earned with acceptable 
scores in the General Examinations. Minimum acceptable scores are 
500 for each general area and 50 in each sub-total category. The 
Subject Examinations are designed to measure knowledge in particu- 
lar courses. Minimum acceptable scores of 50 in each subject exam 
are required for credit. 


The University invites and urges those students who have taken 
the advanced placement examinations of the College Entrance 
Examination BoEird to submit their scores for possible consideration 
toward college credit. The general policy of Oglethorpe toward such 
scores is the following: academic credit will be given in the 
appropriate area to students 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 gQlowed to any student for advanced placement scores will be 
thirty semester hours. 


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 university courses which are applicable to a liberal arts 
or a science degree. A two year residence requirement is in effect, 
but may be reduced to one year by joint decision of the dean and the 
chairm£in of the division 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. 

Transfer students who have earned the Associate of Arts degree at an 
accredited junior college will be awarded two years of credit. The re- 
msiining two years of academic credit will be determined by the Dean of 
the College in consultation with the Registrar, the appropriate depart- 
ment chairman, and the student. Junior college graduates with strong 
academic records are encouraged to apply for admission. All financial 
aid awards £ire open to transfer students as well as new freshmen. 


Oglethorpe University will accept as many as thirty hours of 
United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) credit. Students with 
at least six months active military experience may be granted three 
hours credit for that experience. Students who serve for two years or 
more, may receive six hours credit. 


In addition to regular students, a limited number of special £ind 
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 chEinge 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, provided that they secure permission from the dean of their 
original institution certifying that the institution will accept for 
transfer credit the academic work done by the student at Oglethorpe. 
This permission is the responsibility of the transient student. 


Admission to Oglethorpe is not restricted to recent high school 
graduates and transfer student. The University attempts to fulfill its 
responsibility to the entire community by offering admission to 
non-traditional students. Students with a high school diploma, or its 
equivalent, who have not been enrolled during the last five years are 
exempt from taking the traditional entrance examinations. Also, those 
persons who have never completed their undergraduate degrees and 
wish to resume their study after an extended absence are encouraged to 

Admission is offered in the fall, spring, and summer terms. 
Interviews are required to determine the special needs of these 
students. Personal counseling is available to avoid unnecessary 
difficulties and to promote the development of the students. These 
students have individual plans according to their special needs and 

The University is able to offer admission to non-traditional students 
by recognizing their strengths in enthusiasm, motivation, £ind maturity. 


Admission to Oglethorpe is open to qualified students from all 
nations. Students who are able to provide evidence of suitable 
academic background, adequate financial resources, and seriousness 
of purpose are eligible to apply. 


International students are accepted with the condition that upon 
arrival they will be given an examination in English. Students must 
gain the recommendation of the language center director through 
such examination before enrolling in regular courses. Students who 
do not receive a favorable recommendation from the Director will be 
required to enroll in the ELS Language Center. 


In September of 1975, English Language Services (ELS) and 
Oglethorpe University opened an on-campus English language center. 
The ELS Language Center offers intensive four-week sessions 
teaching English as a second language to college-bound international 
students and professionals. Students enroll in one of more sessions 
depending upon knowledge of English, aptitude for the language, and 
desire for proficiency. Residence hall facilities are available to all 
ELS Students. 

Additional information may be obtained by writing Director, ELS 
Language Center, Oglethorpe University, 4484 Peachtree, Atlanta, 
Georgia 30319. 


Qualified students may apply for an officer program leading to a 
commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine 
Corps. Commissions are offered in both ground and aviation 
components. The Platoon Leaders Course (PLC) is offered to 
freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who attend pre-commissioning 
training during the summer. Financial Assistance and Flight Indoc- 
trination Programs are available. Qualified seniors attend twelve 
weeks of training in the Officer Candidate Course (OCC) after 
graduation. For details, contact the Placement Office or the Marine

Financial Assistance 


Oglethorpe University provides students with an opportunity to 
obtain financial assistance for part of their educational expenses. 
Students may receive several types of aid to make up their "package" 
of financial assistance. 

A financial aid package may include assistance from any one or 
more of the following sources: 

Oglethorpe Merit Awards for Scholarship (O.M.A.S.) are awarded 
in amounts of $500, $700, $900, $1,000, $1,200 and $1,500. For 
freshmen, these awards are based on the applicant's aptitude test 
scores (SAT or ACT). For upperclassmen and transfer students, these 
awards are based on the cumulative grade point average of the 
applicant. Participation in activities, leadership, citizenship, and 
potential for success are also part of the basis for awarding these 
scholarships. The O.M.A.S. 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. 

Georgia Tuition Grant (G.T.G.) are available for Georgia residents 
who attend Oglethorpe. The program was established by an Act of 
the 1971 Georgia General Assembly. The Georgia Higher Education 
Assistance Authority defines the program in this way, "The purpose 
of the Act is to provide tuition assistance to Georgia resident 
students who are desirous of pursuing their higher education goals in 
a private Georgia college or university, but find the financial costs 
prohibitive due primarily to higher tuition of these educational 
institutions in comparison to public schools which are branches of 
the University System of Georgia." All students must complete a 
yearly application to verify their eligibility for the grant. In the 
1976-77 school year, this grant is $200.00 per semester. No Financial 
Aid Form is required for this program since family financial need is 
not a factor in determining eligibility. 

Basic Educational Opportunity Grants (B.E.O.G.) Eire available for 
freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior students in 1977-78. The 
Basic Grant is a federal aid program intended to be the floor in 
financial assistance. Eligibility is based upon a family's financial 
resources. Applications for this program may be obtained from 
the Office of Financial Aid or from a high school guidance 
office. This aid is administered in the form of non-repayable 


Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (S.E.O.G.) do not 

require repayment. The size of the grant depends on the need of the 
individual recipient. To qualify for an S.E.O.G., a student must be 
from a family with "exceptional financial need," must be enrolled or 
accepted for enrollment, and must be capable of maintaining normal 
progress toward the achievement of a degree. Application for these 
funds is made by filing a Financial Aid Form. 

National Direct Student Loans (N.D.S.L.), previously called 
National Defense Student Loans, are long-term, low cost educational 
loans to students who have justified need for such assistance. No 
interest is charged and repayment is deferred while the borrower 
continues as a half-time student. Interest is charged at a three per 
cent annual rate beginning nine months after the borrower's 
education is terminated. These loans are available to students who 
show a demonstrated financial need through the Financial Aid Form. 
Students electing to serve in the Peace Corps, Vista, or in the Armed 
Forces of the United States may be exempt from interest charges and 
repayment for three years. Cancellation benefits may be received by 
teaching in "poverty" areas that are designated by the U.S. 
Commissioner of Education, for teaching handicapped children, and 
for teaching in Head Start programs. 

College Work-Study Program (C.W.S.P.) permits students to earn 
part of the educational expenses. The earnings from this program and 
other financial aid cannot exceed the student's financial need. 
Students eligible for this program work part-time on the Oglethorpe 

Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority (G.H.E.A.A.) 
loans and Federally Insured Student Loans (FJ.S.L.) are long term 
loans available through banks, credit unions, and other lending insti- 
tutions. Students desiring to seek a loan in this manner should con- 
sult with the Director of Financial Aid for additional information. 

Georgia Incentive Scholarship (G.I.S.), as defined by the 
Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority, is a "program 
created by an act of the 1974 Georgia General Assembly in 
order to establish a program of needs-based scholarships for 
qualified Georgia residents to enable them to attend eligible 
post-secondary institutions of their choice within the state. The 
scholarship awards are designed to provide only a portion of 
the student's resources in financing the total cost of post- 
secondary education." Students enrolled in 1977-78 as fresh- 
men, sophomores, juniors, or seniors, or former members of 
the Armed Services should obtain an application. Students who 
attended any post secondary institution prior to April 1, 1974 
are ineligible to apply. 


The Pickett and Hatcher Educational Fund was created by the late 
Claud Adkins Hatcher of Columbus, Georgia, founder of the 
internationally known Royal Crown Cola Company and its predeces- 
sors, of which he served as president for more than twenty -five years. 

In his will, Mr. Hatcher created a trust and stated that the Trustees 
would receive the monies and assets bequeathed to be used as an 
educational loan fund. 

The Trustees of this loan fund serve in a fiduci£iry capacity only. The 
money actually belongs to deserving young people of the present and 
future who want a college education. These young people are 
beneficiEiries who receive not only opportunities for a college 
education, but a trust to use those funds for educational expenses and 
then return them for the benefit of others. 

An informational brochure on this program may be obtained by 
writing to the Office of Financial Aid. 

Ty Cobb Educational Foundation Scholarship Program. Only 
students who are residents of Georgia and who have completed at least 
one year of "B" quality or higher work in an accredited college are 
eligible to apply for Cobb Scholarships, No applications from 
undergraduate students who Eire married will be considered. The 
Faculty Scholarship Committee makes recommendations for these 
scholarships each year,

The Knights Templar Educational Foundation is a loan fund which 
is owned and controlled by the Grand Encampment of Knights 
Templar of the United States of America, founded to render financial 
aid to deserving students who in the first two years of college have

and senior years,

United Student Aid Funds is a not-for-profit corporation which 
endorses low-cost loans made by participating hometown financial 
institutions to deserving students. 

United Student Aid Funds' programs bring together the student's 
public -spirited hometown financial institution (which makes the loan 
at less th£in the customary interest rate for installment loans) and the 
student's school or other sponsors (which provide part of the reserve 


In order for a student to receive financial aid from one semester to 
another it is necessary for the student to be in "good academic 


standing." For freshmen a 1.0 cumulative grade point average will be 
necessary to continue receiving assistance, while sophomores must 
have a 1.4, juniors 1.5 £ind seniors 1.6. The total number of hours 
attempted will be used in the classification of eligible applicants. All 
financial aid recipients will be expected to enroll and complete a 
minimum of twelve hours per semester. Failure to obtain twenty- 
four hours during an academic year may result in a reduction of aid 
for the academic yeai. 

To renew an Oglethorpe Merit Award for Scholarship, a student 
must attain an substantially higher grade point average. Annual 
renewals are based upon the applicant's cumulative grade point 
average and participation in the extracurricular campus life. In 
addition, twenty-four semester hours must be completed in the 
scholastic year prior to renewal. 


The application procedure for the Supplemental Educational 
Opportunity Grant, National Direct Student Loan, and College 
Work-Study Program is as follows: 

1. Apply and be admitted as a regular student.

tions which may be obtained from a high school counselor or the

of Financial Aid. The application procedure for all other assistance 
programs may be determined by contacting the Office of Financial

demic ability and special talents in important fields of extracurricular 
activity. The program will include such activities as debating and 
public speaking; publications, both journalistic and literary; elective 
office, including student government; choral performance; and social 
service. A fundamental aim of Oglethorpe University is to prepare 
students for leadership roles in society. One way of promoting this 
purpose is to give special recognition to students who demonstrate 
leadership capabilities as undergraduates. Scholarships in amounts up 
to full tuition are awarded to superior students with good character 
and leadership capatility who can contribute significantly to one of 
the fields of extra-curricular activity. The individual amounts of 
these awards vary. It is the intent of this program to provide the 
difference between the amount of other assist£ince, if any, and the 
annual cost of tuition. 

The R. E. Dorough Scholarships are awarded to students of

who demonstrate leadership capabilities as undergraduates. The 
individual amounts of these awards vary. It is the intent of the 
program to provide the difference between the amount of other 
assistance, if any, and the cost of room, board, and tuition. 

Recipients of funds from these four programs will be expected to 
maintain specified levels of academic achievement and to continue to 
make significant contributions to their respective activities. Each 
award is for one year, but can be renewed on the basis of an annual 
evaluation of academic and other performance. 






Students and parents desiring to pay expenses in installments are 
advised to investigate their lending institutions or other sources. 
Information may be secured by writing to the Office of Financial 
Aid, Oglethorpe University. Continuing students should complete all 
arrangements well in advance of registration so that they will not be 

All balances and new charges are payable two weeks prior to 
registration. Failure to make the necessary payments will result in 
the cancellation of the student's registration. Students employing the 
Tuition Plan, Inc., or any other source of funds, are not exempt from 
paying deposits by the deadline dates. 

The applicant, upon receipt of notice of acceptance, should 
forward an advance deposit of $200 by the date specified in the 
billing information. One half of this deposit will be credited to the 
student's account in the Fall semester. It is not refundable. 

Tuition and Fees $2,386.00 

Room and Board $1,200.00 

The only standard charges not included in the comprehensive fee 
are the following: 

1. STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE: Health insurance is han- 
dled separately since it is deductible on personal income tax 
returns. The cost is approximately $35.00 per year. This health 
insurance is mandatory for all resident students. Payment for 
this policy is due upon registration in the fall. There is also an 
optional major medical policy for approximately $11.00 per 

2. DAMAGE DEPOSIT: A $100.00 damage deposit is required of 
all boarding students. The damage deposit is refundable at the 
end of the academic year after any charge for damages is 
deducted. Room keys and other college property must be 
returned and the required check-out procedure completed prior 
to issuance of damage deposit refunds. This deposit is payable 
at Fall registration. 

3. ACTIVITY FEE: A $60.00 annual student activity fee is 
charged to all full time students, payable $30.00 each semester. 
This fee partially funds the yearbook, concerts, plays and other 
events. It is subject to increase without notice by OUSA. 

4. POST OFFICE BOX: There is an annual rental fee of $3.00 for 
a post office box for resident students. This is payable at 
Fall registration. 


5. GRADUATING SENIOR: Diploma fee of $15.00.

♦Includes room and board. 


Students enrolled part-time in day classes during the Fall or Spring 
semesters will be charged on a credit hour basis. This rate is $85.00 
per semester hour. This rate is applicable to those students taking 
eleven semester hours or less. Students taking twelve to sixteen hours 
are classified full time. 


Students who are enrolled as evening school students will be 
charged on a credit hour basis. This rate is $50.00 per semester hour. 
To qualify for this special tuition rate during the Fall and Spring 
semesters, a student must take all courses in the evening. All 
four-hour lab courses include an additional $15.00 laboratory fee. 


All students enrolled in Summer School will be assessed on a 
credit hour basis. The rate for day and evening summer school credit 
is $50.00 per semester hour. All four-hour lab courses include an 
additional $15.00 laboratory fee. 

Students desiring residence hall and food service accommodations 
are charged $200.00 per five week session for a double room; 
$235.00 per five week session for a single room. These fees are for 
both room and board. 


Students who find it necessary to drop courses or add courses 
must secure a drop/add form in the Registrar's Office. The form is 
the only means by which students may change their enrollment. A 


drop/add form must be completed in the Registrar's Office during 
drop/add week. After the seventh day of classes, the professor must 
approve the change in schedule. The professor may issue one of the 
following grades: withdraw passing (G), withdraw failing (H), or may 
refuse to approve a drop. In order to receive a refund the class must 
have been dropped by the end of the twentieth class day. 

Students should note that any change of academic schedule must 
be cleared by the Registreir's Office. The date the change is received 
in the Registrar's Office will be the official date for the change. 

If a student misses six consecutive classes in any course, the 
instructor will notify the Registrar's Office and it will be assumed 
that the student has unofficially withdrawn from the course. This 
does not eliminate the responsibility stated above concerning the 
official withdrawal policy. The student may receive the grade of 
withdrawal passing (G), withdrawal failing (H), or failure due to 
excessive absences (E). This policy has direct implications for 
students receiving benefits from the Veterans Administration and 
other federal agencies as these agencies must be notified when a 
student misses six consecutive classes. This will result in an automatic 
decrease in payments to the student. Reinstatement in a course is at 
the discretion of the instructor. 

If a student is in need of withdrawing from school an official 
withdrawal form must be obtained from the Registrar. The Dean of 
the College and the Director of Financial Aid must sign the 
withdrawal form. The date the completed withdrawal form is turned 
in to the Registrar will be the official date for withdrawal. 


The establishment of a refund policy is based on the University's 
commitment to a fair and equitable refund of tuition and other 
charges assessed. While the University advances this policy, it should 
not be interpreted as a policy of convenience for students to take 
lightly their responsibility and their commitment to the University. 
The University has demonstrated a commitment by admitting and 
providing the necessary programs for all students and feels the 
students must also demonstrate a commitment in their academic 

The student insurance payment is a non-refundable charge which 
is paid directly to the insurance company under contract with the 
University. Since the coverage begins on the payment date and the 
fee is not retained by the University, it will not be refunded after 
registration day. A $100 fee will be retained by Oglethorpe as a 
processing fee when a student withdraws; all other fees except the 


advance deposit (i.e., activity fee, post office box, tuition, room and 
board) are subject to the refund schedule. 

The date which will be used for calculation of a refund for 
withdrawal or drop/add will be the date on which the Registrar 
receives the official form signed by all required personnel. All 
students must follow the procedures for withdrawal and drop /add in 
order to receive a refund. Students are reminded that all changes in 
their academic program must be cleared through the Registrar; an 
arrangement with a professor will not be recognized as an official 
change of schedule. 

All tuition refund requests will be processed at the conclusion of 
the fourth week of classes. Payment will take a minimum of two 
weeks, but will be no longer than forty days.

Damage deposit refunds will be processed once each semester for 
students and will be mailed on an announced day from the Business 
Office. No refund will be processed until classes have ceased for the

Student Life 


Oglethorpe University wishes to provide for each student the 
opportunity of adequate adjustment to college life. Because we take 
pride in our ability and our tradition to offer students warm personal 
relationships, we have organized our orientation progrEim to provide 
these relationships, as well as much needed information about the 

Our program has been developed to serve the needs of students 
through small group experiences. Faculty, staff, and upperclass 
students comprise a team which leads the group process. Information 
is disseminated which acquaints the student with the academic 
program and the extra-curricular life of the campus community. 
Thorough understanding of the advisor system, the registration 
process, library use, class offerings, and study demands is sought. 
Alternatives for self expression outside the classroom are also 
presented to the new student. 

To supplement the student's experience, a Freshman Seminar is 
held weekly during the first semester. Topics discussed during these 
sessions will meet the needs of the developing student and will help 
the student assimilate the college experiences. The freshmen stu- 
dents, having completed the orientation progrsim and the series of 
seminars, will be better prepared to understand and appreciate their 
educational development. 


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 £in expression of its confi- 
dence in each student's potential as a human being; however, the 
students must be as willing to accept adult consequences as they are 
insistent upon being granted adult freedom of decision and action. 

Unfortunately, neither knowledge and wisdom nor knowledge and 
integrity are synonymous; therefore, a firm grasp of academic studies 
will not in itself be an assurance that a student is profiting fully from 
the 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 unwiUingness to meet standards will be 
terminated from the Dniversity. 


Undergraduate life at Oglethorpe is, in a large sense, one of a 
democratic community; student government is mainly self- 
government. The Oglethorpe University Student Association, con- 
sisting of the President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 
Pcirliamentarian of O.S.A. and the Presidents of the four classes, is 
the guiding and governing organization of student life at the 
University. Meetings are held regularly and notice posted. All 
students are urged to attend. Additional information may be 
obtained from O.S.A., Box 458, 3000 Woodrow Way, Atlanta, 
Georgia 30319. 


Valuable educational experiences may be gained through active 
participation in approved csimpus activities and organizations. 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. Students are especially encouraged to 
join professional organizations associated with their interests and

University social fraternities were re-instituted at Oglethorpe in 
1967; sororities followed in 1968. At present four fraternities and 
one sorority contribute to the Greek system at Oglethorpe. 

The four fraternities are Chi Phi, Alpha Epsilon Pi, Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon, and Kappa Alpha. The sorority is Chi Omega. 

These social organizations contribute substantially to the spiritual 
and social betterment of the individual and develop college into a 
richer, fuller experience. Membership in these organizations is 
voluntary and subject to regulations imposed by the groups, the 
University Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, or by the 
Student Government Association. 


Oglethorpe University competes in the following intercollegiate 
competition: basketball, baseball, track, cross country, soccer, and 

In addition to the intercollegiate competition, a well rounded 
program of intrsimural sports is offered and has strong participation 
by the student body. 


The Counseling Service at Oglethorpe provides confidential pro- 
fessional assistance to students experiencing personal problems of a 
psychological, social, or circumstantial nature. Though academic 
advising is the responsibility of individually-assigned faculty advisors, 
students encountering unusual academic difficulties may wish to 


consult a counselor regarding possible contributing factors. Assistance 
in developing effective study skills is £ilso available both in special work- 
shops and, if needed, in individual conferences. Psychological tests are 
sometimes utilized in conjunction with the counseling process when 
circumstances indicate that these would be helpful. There is no fee to 
Oglethorpe students for any of the counseling services provided. 


Students needing guidance in selecting a career or assistance in 
obtaining appropriate job placement can receive help from the Office 
of Career Development. An extensive career development library is 
maintained containing information on a wide variety of career 
opportunities. Vocational interest inventories are also available and 
are frequently used as a part of a highly individualized process of 
career counseling. 

Oglethorpe University is a member of the College Placement 
Council and maintains contact with numerous local and national 
businesses, industries, and social service agencies for the purpose of 
arranging employment interviews for seniors. Information on 
full-time, part-time, and summer employment opportunities is being 
updated constantly and made available to all students and alumni. In 
addition, a central placement file is maintained on all students and 
alumni who complete the necessary forms and provide references of 
appraisal. Upon written request this placement file will be sent to 
any prospective employer or graduate school indicated. 


The residence halls are available to all full time students. There are 
five men's residence halls and two women's halls. Both complexes 
have a Resident Director and a staff of student Resident Assistants. 

All students living in the residence halls are required to participate 
in the University meal plan. Meals are served in the University 
Center. Meal tickets are issued at registration. 


All resident students are required to subscribe to the Student 
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, £ind 
provides basic first aid service and limited medical assistance for 
students covered by the student insurance plan. 


A physician visits the infirmary twice a week to make general 
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 the academic studies, group-living situation, or other 
relationships at the University or in the community, the student will be 
requested to withdraw. Re-admission to the University will be 
contigent upon acceptable verification that the student is ready to 
return. The final decision will rest with the University. 


The O Book is the student handbook of Oglethorpe University. It 
contains thorough information on the history, customs, traditional 
events, and services of the University, as well as all University 
regulations. This publication provides all the necessary information 
about the University which will aid each student in adjusting to 
college life.

Academic Regulations 


The University recognizes attendance at classes as the respon- 
sibility of the student. Students are held accountable for aU work 
missed. The exact nature of absence regulations is determined by the 
instructors for their own courses. Such regulations are published and 
distributed by each professor at the beginning of each term. 


A letter grading system is used. The range of "A-D" represents 
passing work; any grade below "D" is regarded as a failure. Students 
withdrawing from a course before the end of the semester are given a 
"G" or "H", depending upon the circumstances of the withdrawal. 
Students who do not meet aU the requirements 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 becomes an "F." Grade structure and 
quality points are as follows : 

















Failure: Excessive absences 






Withdrawn Failing 






Passing (used in special cases) 


Audit (no credit) 


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. 

For the student's own welfare, a graduated system of mini- 
mum 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 £ind seniors of at least 2.2. 


A minimum of 120 semester hours is required, of which the last 
sixty must be earned at Oglethorpe except in exceptional cases (see 
page 20). 

All core courses (or the equivalent for transfer students) plus a 
major must be completed. Requirements for majors in the various 
disciplines aire listed under each section deailing with the majors 

A minimum grade point average of 2.2 is necessary. 

An application for a diploma must be filed with the Registrar at 
least one semester prior to graduation. 

The specific requirements for each degree must be completed. 

All obligations to the institution must be discharged before a 
degree is granted including a diploma fee. 

The student must be approved formally for graduation by the 


The requirements for specific majors vary among the disciplines. 
Detailed requirements are listed in the sections dealing with majors. 
The student is advised to consult frequently with an advisor to 
satisfy both general and major requirements. 


Oglethorpe offers four degrees to those meeting the necessary 
requirements: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of 
Business Administration, and Master of Arts in Elementary Educa- 
tion. 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, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies), English, General 
Studies, History, Metro Life Studies, Philosophy, Political Studies, 
Psychology, Sociology. Under the Bachelor of Science, majors 
programs are offered in the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, 
Mathematics, Physics, and MedicEil Technology. Under the Bachelor 
of Business Administration, majors programs are offered in the 
following areas: Accounting, Business Administration, and 


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 the junior 
year and then, after one year in the professional school, receive a 
degree from Oglethorpe. Students interested in this possibility should 
consult with their advisors to make certain that all conditions are 


Freshmen who fail to maintain a cumulative average of at least 
1.8, sophomores of at least 2.0, and juniors and seniors of at least 
2.2, are placed on probation for the following term. Academic 
probation is a strong warning to students that they must make 
substantial progress toward reestablishing their good stcinding during 
the following semester or be dismissed from the University. 

Evaluation of academic progress will normally be done at the end 
of each academic year but freshmen will be evaluated at mid year. 
Freshmen who receive the grade of F in all subjects will be dismissed. 
Students who do not meet the following minimum cumulative 
average scale will be dismissed for academic reasons: freshmen 1.0; 
sophomores 1.4; juniors 1.5; seniors 1.6. 

Students who do not meet these minimum requirements at the 
end of the academic year will be notified in writing of deficiencies. 
An opportunity will be given to attend summer school classes. If 
deficiences are not corrected, the student will be dismissed. All 
dismissals are subject to review by the Faculty Council. A student 
who has been dismissed may be reinstated only upon petition to the 
Faculty Council. A petition may be filed with the registrar after an 
absence of one semester. 


For administrative and other official and extra-official purposes, 
students are classified according to the number of semester hours 
successfully completed. Classification is as follows: to 30 hours- 
freshman; 31 to 60 hours— sophomore; 61 to 90 hours— junior; 91 
hours and above— senior. 


A normal academic program at Oglethorpe consists of no less than 
four courses each semester, but generally five courses are taken, 


giving the student a total of twelve to sixteen 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 reduced load will pay the 
rate published by the University. 


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 are awarded as follow: 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. 


To comply with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974, 
commonly called the Buckley Amendment, Oglethorpe University 
informs the students of their rights under this act in the student 
handbook. The ''O" Book. Three basic rights are covered by this act: 
(1) the student's right to have access to personsil records, (2) the 
right of a hearing to challenge the content of a record and, (3) the 
right to give consent for the release of identifying data. Additional 
information may be obtained from The "O" Book and from the 
Office of the Dean.

students, a student must take all courses in the evening. A student 
taking any course during the day will not be classified as an evening 


The Department of Continuing Education acts as a community 
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. From time to time, business 
and professional workshops and conferences are sponsored by this

these two requirements. 


In the following section, the courses are listed numerically by area 
within their respective Divisions. Each course is designated by a four 
digit number. The first digit indicates the course level. (For example: 
freshman is 1; sophomore, 2, etc.) The second and third digits 
designate the discipline. Each level of offerings assumes the earlier 
completion of necessary prerequisites. The number of hours refers to 
the semester hours credit per term allowed for the course. The 
designation "3 + 3" or "4 + 4" indicates that the course carries 6 or 
8 semester hours of credit, respectively, for two semesters of work. 


Upon entering Oglethorpe University all students are assigned a 
faculty mentor who assists them in the preparation of their academic 
program. Responsibility, however, for taking the requisite core and 
major courses rests exclusively with the student. A student may 
declare a major at any time during the freshman or sophomore year 
by filing the appropriate form with the Registrar's Office. Changes of 
major must also be submitted to the Registrar for approval. Each 
student must declare a major before completing 60 semester hours. 


In addition to the required core program, most of the 
majors include three levels of courses; those prescribed for the major, 
directed electives recommended as immediately related to the major,' 
and free electives allowed to enable each student to widen his 
intellectual interests. Variations of each program are possible, 
according to the particular needs of the student and the regulations 
of each department. Majors programs are offered in the following: 

Accounting History 

Biology Mathematics 

Business Administration Medical Technology 

Chemistry Metro Life Studies 

Economics Philosophy 

Education-Elementary Physics 

Education-Secondary PoliticgJ Studies 

English Psychology 

General Studies Sociology 


The General Studies Major is avaiilable to students who prefer not 
to select a specific major. The degree awarded is Bachelor of Arts in 
General Studies. 

The General Studies Major consists of the following: completion 
of the basic core requirements; completion of a sufficient number of 
course hours to complete the 120 semester hours prescribed for an 
Oglethorpe degree; completion of a coherent sequence of courses in- 
cluding at least 18 semester hours in one discipline and 12 semester 
hours in another discipline (in the first category no more than two 
courses could be core requirements, and in the second category only 
one could be a core requirement); completion of at least 36 semester 
hours in courses designated for juniors and seniors. 

Concentrations in General Studies also include Pre-Law, Pre- 
Medicine, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Nursing and Post-Nursing. 


Students interested in attending medical or dental schools should 
consult the catalogs of these schools to be able to plan an 
undergraduate program to fulfill their requirements. A summary of 
the requirements of all mediccil schools is available in the annual 
bulletin of the Association of American Medical Colleges. 


Specific premedical course requirements vary among the schools. 
However, all recognize the importance of a broad educational 
background. A coordinated program which includes extensive study 
in the natural sciences, development of communication skills, and 
study of the social sciences and humanities is most desirable. 

Students should consult regularly with both the medical school 
catalogs and the premedical advisor on the Oglethorpe campus. It 
must be recognized that medical schools set certain minimum science 
and mathematics requirements for applicants. These minimum 
requirements can be met by completion of the following courses: 
Genergd Chemistry I and II, Biology I and II, Math Analysis I, 
Elementary Quantitative Analysis, Organic Chemistry I and II, 
Physics I and II, and four additional directed electives in Biology. 

Professional option is available to highly qualified students. This 
option allows pre-medical students to enter their respective profes- 
sional programs at the end of the junior year. Credit is awarded at 
Oglethorpe for the academic credit earned during the first year of 
mediccil school. 


A program of study for students interested in nursing is available 
at Oglethorpe. This program consists of 60 semester hours (two 
years) of study in the liberal sirts and sciences which are to be taken 
at Oglethorpe. After completion of this program, the student may 
complete the requirements for the R.N. degree at any accredited 
program of nursing. Sixty hours of credit is awarded for the R.N. 
degree and the student is then eligible for graduation with the 
Bachelor of Arts degree in Pre-Nursing. In addition to completing the 
requirements for the R.N. degree, the student is required to 
successfully complete the following courses: Freshman English I and 
II, Mathematics I and II, Biology I and II, literature sequence (see 
core program). Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Socio- 
logy, Principles of Economics I, General Chemistry I and II, 
Genetics, Physiology, Microbiology, and two electives. Pre-nursing 
students are exempt from general core requirements not listed above. 


This concentration is designed for students who have been 
awarded the R.N. degree from an accredited program in nursing. The 
varied nature of the applicant's academic background necessitates a 



flexible program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 
Post-Nursing. Requirements for this concentration include the 
successful completion of eight core courses (24 semester hours) not 
previously taken. These courses are listed in the section of this 
catalog dealing with the University's general core program. In 
addition, students take twelve directed electives (36 semester hours) 
depending upon their special needs and interests. These courses are 
determined in consultation with the Post-Nursing advisor or the Dean 
of the College. Successful completion of the R.N. degree and the 60 
semester hours described above lead to the Bachelor of Arts in

The Oglethorpe University Far Eastern Summer Session offers an 
exceptional opportunity for its students to undertake a program of 
study to several oriental cities. During the summer, students travel in 
the miliue of a great culture and study the origin, nature, and 
achievements of that particular culture. 


This program is primarily directed to the undergraduate humani- 
ties program. The purpose of the session is to broaden the student's 
perspective by enhancing the understanding and appreciation of 
Einother culture. 

COURSE OF STUDY: The study program is organized around 
two related motifs. (1) Prior to the trip to the Far East, a four week 
seminar will be devoted to the understanding of Far Eastern cultures 
through the combined perspectives of geography and history, art and 
religion, economics and political science. Students will attend lectures 
by the instructors who will stress an interdisciplin£iry approach to 
Eastern societies. The instructor will provide the leadership for the 
independent study group of the student's major interest. (2) There 
will be tours to the major culture monuments of Eastern cities. 
During the tour in the Far East students will engage in an 
independent study project of their choosing.

Activities of the trip are designed to develop a knowledge and 
appreciation of the historical and cultursil heritage of the western 
world in art, literature, architecture, and other areas. 

This travel experience is preceded by a series of orientation 
sessions during which the students select appropriate reading 
materials; prepare for new cultural experiences in languages, foods, 
money, etc., and begin selection of independent study projects. Upon 
return to the Oglethorpe Campus students prepare an independent 
study project growing out of their experiences in Europe. All activities 
are supervised by the Director of the European Summer Session.

Division VI Graduate 
Studies In Elementary 


The Graduate Division offers work leading to the degree Master of 
Arts in elementary education. Completion of the master's program 
requires the following steps: 

1. Full admission to the Graduate Division. 

2. Admission to Candidacy. Apply after completion of twelve 
semester hours graduate credit at Oglethorpe, 

3, Satisfactory completion of a comprehensive final examination. 
Apply after completion of all required courses but not sooner 
than one semester prior to expected graduation, 

4, Completion of thirty -six semester hours approved credit. 
Application for diploma should be made during the semester 
prior to einticipated completion of degree requirements. 


The Graduate Division is organized as one of the six academic 
divisions of Oglethorpe University, 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 adminis- 
tration, under the leadership of the chairman of the Graduate 

The purposes of the graduate program are to provide well-qualified 
students with the opportunity to obtain the first graduate degree, to 
provide members of the teaching profession with the opportunity to 
enhance their competencies and knowledge in the area of elementary 
education, including the opportunity 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 passing of prescribed courses and the meeting of 
minimum requirements. All students who receive graduate degrees 
must possess a broad knowledge of the literature of their field of 
study, be capable of sustained study, exhibit the power of 
independent thinking, and possess reasonable knowledge of the 
techniques of rese£irch. 



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 college or university may be admitted to 
the Graduate Division. In addition to genersil requirements pre- 
scribed, the applicant must submit transcripts of all previous work 
completed, satisfactory scores on the Graduate Record Examination 
(Aptitude Test), two recommendations (form provided) from pre- 
vious colleges attended and/or employers and, when deemed neces- 
sary, take validating examinations or preparatory work. Candidates 
not previously prepared for teaching must meet requirements for 
first professional certification before completing requirements for 
the master's degree. 


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 $10.00 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 University and will not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate Division in 
the term indicated on the application, the applicant should notify 
the Office of Admissions of the change and indicate a new date of 
entrance, if applicable. Otherwise, the original admission will be 
cancelled, the file discontinued, and a new application 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 admission to 
candidacy, see the section Admission to Candidacy. 

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



Students may be admitted to the Graduate Division under any one 
of the following classifications: 

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 reguleir graduate student. 

Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of the standards 
required for admission as a regular student or a qualified senior may 
be admitted under conditions 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 reclassification when the 
conditions have been met. Graduate courses completed by the 
provisional student may be counted toward a degree after the 
student has been reclassified as a regular student. 

A senior within six semester hours of completing requirements for 
the bachelor's degree may be permitted to enroll in courses for 
graduate credit provided that: (1) the student has the permission of 
the head of the education department and the chairman of the 
Graduate Division; (2) the student is otherwise qualified for 
admission to graduate study except for the degree, and (3) the 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. 

Transient. A student in good standing in another recognized 
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 the student must 
submit a transient student application form completed by the 
graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for credit. Any 
student admitted on this basis should understand that registration 
terminates upon the completion of the work authorized by the 
degree-granting institution. If later electing to seek a degree from 
Oglethorpe University, the student must make formal application for 
admission and may petition to have credit earned as a transient 
student applied toward the degree at Oglethorpe University, 


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 or local school requirements, may be 
admitted without presenting 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 dates for each term are listed on page 5 of this 
publication. Several weeks prior to the beginning of each term, 
students may obtain from the Registrar's Office a schedule of classes 
for that particular term. 


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

The maximum course load for any graduate student is fifteen 
credit hours per semester or 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 can be successfully completed. 


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 a program of study. 


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 unusual 
circumstances, is unable to complete the required work in the 
prescribed time interval, provided the student was doing

have been met. The following regulations govern the administration 
of the comprehensive examination:
