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 con- 
cepts 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 
learn 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 inesca- 
pably 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. Educa- 
tion, 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 man 
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, are the only sources of payrolls compatible 
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 talent! 


We make no claim that formal education inevitably bestows these bene- 
fits. 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 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 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 promotes this desired result. Not 
only in professional training but also in the education of the human per- 
sonality, 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 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. 

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 career. 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 
community, 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 to- 
gether 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 pros- 


Education in the English tradition 

American higher education, as we know it today, has been influenced 
primarily by three ideas of what a college or university ought to be. The first 
is the model of the English college, particularly in the form developed at 
Oxford and Cambridge in the 18th and 19th centuries. Most of the older 
institutions in the United States were patterned on the English colleges of 
that period. Many thoughtful observers have concluded that this is the finest 
type of collegiate education produced by Western civilization. 

The second idea is that of the German university, especially of the 19th 
century. This model, which has had enormous influence on American 
universities, stresses professional education (as in medicine and law), 
graduate study leading to the Ph.D. degree, and specialized research. The 
German university idea was imported into the United States by Johns 
Hopkins and other institutions in the last century and has left its mark on 
every college and university in this country. 

The third idea or model is that of the land-grant college, a uniquely 
American institution created by the Morrill Act, passed by Congress in 1 862. 
This model emphasizes large-scale technical education and service to 
agriculture and industry. It has contributed especially to education in such 
fields as engineering and agriculture and has been the basis on which many 
of the state universities have been built. 

Oglethorpe University stands firmly in the tradition of the English college. 
Established in 1835 and named after General James Edward Oglethorpe, 
the founder of Georgia, the University was patterned on Corpus Christi 
College, Oxford, General Oglethorpe's alma mater. It would be overstating 
the matter to say that Oglethorpe University has been untouched by the 
other two conceptions of higher education, but it has certainly been shaped 
principally by the English tradition of collegiate education. 

What are the distinctive features of that tradition? Hundreds of books 
have been written on the subject, perhaps the most influential of which is 
John Henry Newman's The Idea of a University, one of the great educa- 
tional classics. I shall mention only five characteristics that have made this 
kind of college widely admired: 

1 . The colleges in the English tradition emphasize broad education for 
intelligent leadership. They believe that this is a more useful undergraduate 
education for the able young person than technical training for a specific job. 

2. Colleges such as Oglethorpe stress the basic academic competen- 
cies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning — and the fundamental 
fields of knowledge — the arts and sciences. Many high schools and 
colleges neglect these disciplines today, but they continue to be the essen- 
tial tools of the educated person. 


3. Close relationships between teacher and student are indispensable to 
this type of education. A teacher is much more than a conveyor of informa- 
tion (the invention of the printing press made that notion of education 
obsolete). Rather, the most important function of the teacher is to stimulate 
intellectual activity in the student and to promote his development as a 
mature person. Factory-like instruction, conducted in huge classes, is the 
very antithesis of the English tradition. 

4. A collegiate education is far more than simply "taking" courses. It is a 
process of development in which campus leadership opportunities, resi- 
dential life, athletics, formal and informal social functions, aesthetic experi- 
ences, and contact which students from other cultures, in addition to class- 
room exercises, all have their proper place. Versatility and ability to lead are 
important goals of undergraduate education. 

5. No claim is made that this is the appropriate education for everyone. 
Many young people are better fitted for technical or vocational schools. 
Others have little aptitude for leadership and no interest in ideas or theoreti- 
cal questions. At Oglethorpe our expehence has been that, in general, an 
applicant should rank in the top third of college-bound students if he is to 
succeed in a strong college of arts and sciences. 

As we approach our 1 43rd year, we are proud of our English heritage and 
are convinced that his is the kind of education most needed in the world 

(This statement was prepared by Manning M. Pattillo, Jr., President, for the 
1977 Annual Report) 



One of the South's oldest and finest educational institutions, Oglethorpe 
University, was chartered on December 21 , 1 835, as a result of the efforts of 
a group of Georgia Presbyterians seeking to establish a college for training 
young men for the ministry. The founders named the new college after 
General James Edward Oglethorpe, the distinguished leader of Georgia in 
its earliest days. 

The University began actual operation on January 1 , 1838, at Midway, a 
small village near Milledgeville, then the state capitol, with one hundred and 
twenty-five students and a faculty of six. 

For nearly three decades after its founding, Oglethorpe University grew 
steadily in stature and influence. Its president during most of the that time, 
Samuel K. Talmage, provided gifted leadership and 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. degree, and Joseph LeConte, destined to acquire 
world fame for his work in the field of geology. 

Oglethorpe produced a steady stream of graduates during the early years 
the most famous being the poet Sidney Lanier. A member of the class of 
1860, Lanier is reported to have remarked that the greatest intellectual 
impulse of his life came to him during his college days at Oglethorpe. 

By the close of the 1850's, the institution had reached a new plateau of 
financial solidarity and academic soundness, but its life and service were 
suddenly cut short in the 1860's as Oglethorpe became a casualty of war. 
Her students marched away to become Confederate soldiers; her endow- 
ment at length was lost in Confederate bonds; her buildings were converted 
to barracks and a hospital. Toward the end of the war General William T. 
Sherman's army, during its destructive march to the sea, visited the Univer- 
sity but left the property intact. 

In 1 866 an effort was made to revive Oglethorpe, first at Midway and then 
by relocation in Atlanta. However, the ravages of war, together with the 
disruptions of Reconstruction, presented obstacles too great to overcome, 
and in 1872 Oglethorpe closed its doors again. 

The next chapter of Oglethorpe's history begins with the vision of Dr. 
Thornwell Jacobs, who arrived in Atlanta in 1909 to serve as executive 
secretary in a campaign to raise funds for Agnes Scott College. By 1 91 2, his 
thinking had crystalized into a determination to re-establish Oglethorpe. Dr. 
Jacobs enlisted the support of Presbyterian churches throughout the South 
and East and from various individuals and groups in Atlanta. His vision 
materialized in 1915 with the laying of the cornerstone of the first building 

HISTORY ; 1 1 

(later named Phoebe Hearst Hall) on the present campus. Oglethorpe 
alumni from the classes of 1860 and 1861 were present for the historic 
ceremony, thus symbolically linking the old Oglethorpe with the new. 

Dr. Jacobs subsequently was named President, serving in that capacity 
until 1944. During that time the University grew in size and reputation. 
Throughout the 1920's the institution received substantial contributions 
from individuals such as J.T. Lupton, Mrs. Robert J. Lowry, and William 
Randolph Hearst, Sr. With these and other contributions several buildings 
were constructed, including Lupton Hall, site of the present administration 
building; Lowry Hall, the University's library; and Hearst Hall, which now 
serves as a classroom facility. 

Oglethorpe, under the leadership of Dr. Jacobs, was soon to be recog- 
nized as one of the South's most innovative educational institutions. In 
1 931 , WJTL, one of the first campus radio stations in the United States, was 
established at Oglethorpe. A few years later, Dr. Jacobs began his work on 
"The Crypt of Civilization," located in a vault in Phoebe Hearst Hall. This is a 
collection of 800 books and other objects representative of 20th Century 
America, which is to remain sealed until the year 8113, when it will be 
opened for the benefit of historians. The project was reported nationally and 
internationally and was supported from its inception by the Scientific Ameri- 
can. General David Sarnoff, founder and Chairman of the Board of the 
Radio Corporation of America (R.C.A.) spoke at the ceremony at which the 
Crypt was closed in 1940. 

Several other interesting projects began during the Jacobs administra- 
tion, including an unsuccessful attempt to relocate the remains of General 
James Oglethorpe from England to the Oglethorpe campus. In the late 
1 930's, the "Exceptional Education Experiment" was instituted with the aim 
of adding depth and meaning to the educational process for a group of 
carefully selected students. 

A new chapter opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1 944 when Dr. Philip 
Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a group of faculty associates, 
including Dr. Gerhart Niemeyer, Dr. George Seward, and Professor Wen- 
dell Brown, initiated a new and exciting approach to undergraduate educa- 
tion called the "Oglethorpe Idea." This concept was based on the conviction 
that education should encompass the twin aims of making a life and making 
a living, and toward these ends a program of studies should be developed. 
The essential curricular principles adopted at that time have continued to 
provide the framework of an Oglethorpe education for the past thrity years. 

The University continued to make steady progress during the presiden- 
cies of J. Whitney Bunting, Donald Wilson, Donald C. Agnew, and Paul R. 
Beall. Throughout his period strong teachers were appointed, the academic 
program was further developed, and there was a gradual expansion of the 


size of the student body. Special mention should also be made of George 
Seward, who contributed importantly to the educational development of the 
University, as a long-time dean and an acting president. 

The presidency changed hands once again in 1967 when Dr. Paul 
Kenneth Vonk assumed office. Keeping pace with the growing demands of 
increased enrollment, Dr. Vonk initiated a program of physical expansion 
unparalleled in the University's long history. During his administration the 
following buildings were completed: five men's dormitories — Jacobs, 
Weltner, Alumni, Oglethorpe, and Trustees; a beautiful university center; a 
women's dormitory, Traer Hall; and a science center, Gosiin Hall. In addi- 
tion, all of the older buildings were extensively remodeled, giving 
Oglethorpe an attractive campus and an excellent physical plant. 

Manning M. Pattillo, Jr. was inaugurated in 1975 as Oglethorpe's twelfth 
president. During his administration special emphasis has been placed on 
liberal education as a rigorous intellectual experience and as preparation 
for leadership. The expansion of Oglethorpe's program of continuing edu- 
cation, the attraction of students from abroad, and the acceleration of finan- 
cial development are other areas that have received particular attention. 

Oglethorpe University has had a long and exciting history and has pro- 
duced more than its share of distinguished graduates in business, public 
affairs, education, medicine, religion, law, and other fields. It looks forward 
to an increasingly important role as one of the better private colleges in its 

The complete history of Oglethorpe University cannot be told for it is as 
varied as each of her students. The future depends on her students today, 
as it has for generations. She will develop as her students develop; she will 
grow and prosper only if they are sufficiently prepared to meet the challenge 
of the future. 


Buildings And Grounds 


Lowry Hall provides a functional and attractive library for the University. 
One of its outstanding features is the variety of study areas, which are 
comfortably furnished in a pleasant, quiet atmosphere. It has a large 
reading-reference room on the first floor, and also an outdoor reading patio 
on the same level at the north end of the building. Individual student 
conference rooms are available, as well as individual carrels in the book 
stack areas. The Library of Congress classification system is used in an 
open stack arrangement, allowing free access to users on all four floors. 
Provisions are made for a variety of microform materials. 

The collection of over 160,000 items includes books, periodicals, micro- 
forms, and audiovisual materials. More than 300 periodical subscriptions 
provide a diversified range of current information. The R.L. Dempsey Spe- 
cial Collections room includes materials on James Edward Oglethorpe and 
Georgia, Sidney Lanier (an Oglethorpe alumnus), and other collections of 
autographed books and unique volumes. The library has the only known 
contemporary oil portrait of General Oglethorpe in existence. 

The Sears Collection of Children's Literature contains over 2,000 vol- 
umes of children's books, which help support the graduate program of 
elementary education. The library also subscribes to the ERIC (Educational 
Resources Information Center) microfiche publications. The Japanese Col- 
lection consists of books in the English language and other materials on 
Japanese history and culture. 

A browsing area contains a special collection of current books which have 
general appeal. It also provides access to all new acquisitions before they 
are dispersed into the classified subject sections. 

The Oglethorpe Art Gallery, which has several exhibits each year that are 
open to the public, is located in the library. 

The library is open seven days a week during the two regular semesters 
of the academic year. On five days it is open both day and evening. 


The University Center is the hub of campus life. It houses the student 
lounges, television room, recreational facilities, snackbar, post office, book 
store, student activity offices, conference rooms, cafeteria and dining room, 
and offices of the Director of Student 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 the Admissions Office 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 Develop- 
ment, Alumni Office, and Financial Aid Office are on the second floor. The 
third floor is the site of the E.L.S. Language Center, which was opened in 
September, 1 975. 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 1 91 5 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 classroom and faculty office 
building. Most classes with the exception of science and mathematics are 
held in this building which is located directly across from Lupton Hall. 
Additional renovation for a student-faculty lounge and an expanded com- 
puter center was completed in 1977. 

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, 81 13. 


This science center was completed during the fall of 1 971 and houses the 
science and psychology departments. Laboratories for biology, chemistry 
and physics, and modern lecture halls, 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 1 969, 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 some Junior and Senior 
women students. Private rooms are available. Located adjacent to Good- 
man Hall are three newly resurfaced tennis courts (1977). 


Five men's residence halls are situated around the upper quadrangle. 
Two of the buildings were named for former Oglethorpe presidents, Dr. 
Philip Weltner and Dr. Thornwell Jacobs. Constructed in 1 968, these build- 
ings were refurbished and carpeted in 1977. The three story structures 
house all male resident students. 


The Student Health Center is housed on the upper level of Faith Hall, 
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 health center. 


The Dorough Field House is the site of intercollegiate basketball, intra- 
mural and recreational sports, and large campus gatherings such as con- 
certs and commencement exercises. Built in 1960, this structure is sched- 
uled for major renovation in 1978. The building is named for the late R.E. 
(Red) Dorough, a former Trustee of the University. 



The most recent additions to the campus are a six-lane, all-weather, 
reslite track which was dedicated in May, 1975, and a new intramural field 
which was opened in 1976. These improvements provide modern facilities 
for the soccer and track teams. The intramural football and Softball teams 
use these new facilities as well. 




Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students from all sec- 
tions 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 recom- 
mendations of their counselors and teachers, and their scores on aptitude 
tests. In recent years, the Admissions Committee has become increasingly 
selective in reviewing the credentials of the candidates. Admission is of- 
fered to approximately 66 per cent of the applicants. 

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 

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 

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


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 Exarriina- 
tions cover the areas of English Composition, Humanities, Mathematics, 
Natural Science, and Social Science — History. A maximum of thirty se- 
mester hours may be earned with acceptable scores in the General Exami- 
nations. 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 particular courses. A minimum acceptable score of 
50 in a subject examination is required for credit. 


The University invites and urges those students who have taken the 
advanced placement examinations of the College Entrance Examination 
Board 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 4 or 5; exemption but not credit will be given 
in the appropriate area from basic courses for students presenting a grade 
of 3; neither credit nor exemption will be given for a grade of 2; maximum 
credit to be allowed to any student for advanced placement tests will be 
thirty semester hours. 


Applicants for transfer from other recognized institutions of higher learn- 
ing are welcome 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 chairman 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 remaining 
two years of academic credit will be determined by the Dean of the College 
in consultation with the Registrar, the appropriate department chairman, 


and the student. Junior college graduates with strong academic records are 
encouraged to apply for admission. All financial aid awards and scholar- 
ships are 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 experi- 
ence. Students who serve for two years or more, may receive six hours 


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 semes- 
ter 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, 
provided that they secure permission from the dean of their original institu- 
tion certifying that the institution will accept for transfer credit the academic 
work done by the student at Oglethorpe. This permission is the responsibil- 
ity of the transient student. 


Admission to Oglethorpe is not restricted to recent high school graduates 
and transfer students. 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 ex- 
tended absence are encouraged to apply. 

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

Two special programs are offered for adults who desire to reenter the 
academic environment. One is a Study Skills Workshop which includes the 
following topics: motivation for study, concentration and memory, time 
management, reading improvement, note-taking, and test-taking. The 


Other program is a seminar that covers topics like financial planning, per- 
sonal readjustment, child care, values clarification, goal setting, and per- 
sonal affirmation. 

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


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

Many 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. 

Students who take the TOEFL and present scores of 500 or better are 
exempt from taking language center courses. These students are allowed 
to enroll in the regular university curriculum. 


In September of 1 975, English Language Services (ELS) and Oglethorpe 
University opened an on-campus English language center. The ELS Lan- 
guage Center offers intensive four-week sessions teaching English as a 
second language to college-bound international students and profes- 
sionals. Students enroll in one or more sessions depending upon knowl- 
edge 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 Lan- 
guage Center, Oglethorpe University, 4484 Peachtree, Atlanta, Georgia 


Qualified students may apply for an officer program leading to a commis- 
sion as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. Commis- 
sions 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 Assis- 
tance and Flight Indoctrination 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 Officer 
Selection Officer. 


All correspondence concerning admission should be addressed to the 
Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, Georgia. After receiv- 
ing the application form, the applicant should complete and return it with an 
application fee of $20.00. 

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

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 accommodations for the appropriate term. Dormitory students sub- 
mit a deposit of $200.00; commuter $100.00. While the deposit is not 
refundable, it is applicable toward tuition and fees as stated on page 30. 

Additional information may be obtained by contacting the Office of Admis- 
sions (404) 261-1441 or (404) 233-6864. 


Financial Assistance 


Oglethorpe University provides students with an opportunity to obtain 
financial assistance for part of their educational expenses. The Financial 
Aid Form (FAF) is the common form by which students may apply for all 
campus based programs (National Direct Student Loans, Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grants, College Work-Study) and at the same 
time, apply for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant. In completing the 
Financial Aid Form, the student will receive his Student Eligibility Report for 
the Basic Grant Program. When the report is received, it should be for- 
warded to the Director of Financial Aid. 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 from $500 to $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.) is 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 univer- 
sity, 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 1978-79 
school year, this grant is $300.00 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 Grant (B.E.O.G.) is a federal aid pro- 
gram intended to be the floor in financial assistance. Eligibility is based upon 
a family's financial resources. Applications for this program may be ob- 
tained from the Office of Financial Aid or from a high school guidance office. 
This aid is administered in the form of non-repayable grants. 


Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (S.E.O.G.) do not re- 
quire 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 achieve- 
ment 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 stu- 
dents who have demonstrated 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 begin- 
ning 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 campus. 

Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority (G.H.E.A.A.) loans 
and Federally Insured Student Loans (F.I.S.L.) are long term loans 
available through banks, credit unions, and other lending institutions. Stu- 
dents desiring to seek a loan in this manner should consult 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. 

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 predecessors, 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 fiduciary capacity only. The 
money actually belongs to deserving young people of the present and future 
who want a college education. These young people are beneficiahes 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 

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

Ty Cobb Educational Foundation Scholarship Program. Only stu- 
dents 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 are married will be considered. The Faculty Scholarship Committee 
makes recommendations for these scholarships each year. 

Additional information may be secured from the Director of Financial Aid. 

Payment Plans 
The University recommends two companies which offer tuition payment 
plans. Because fees are due at registration, families may want to consider 
these payment plans so as to spread their payments throughout the course 
of the year. Brochures describing these programs may be secured from the 
Office of Financial Aid. The two companies are The Tuition Plan of Concord, 
New Hampshire and the Knight Tuition Payment Plans of Boston, Massa- 


Applicants for a Basic Educational Opportunity Grant, National Direct 
Student Loan, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, or College 
Work-Study must meet the following criteria: 

1. Student must be a U.S. citizen, national or permanent resident. 

2. Be enrolled on at least half-time basis (6 hours) in a regular degree- 
seeking program. 

3. Students must maintain 'satisfactory progress" in their course of 
study. Satisfactory progress means that a student must earn twenty- 
four (24) semester hours each twelve months in order to continue 
receiving financial aid. In addition, freshmen must maintain at least a 
1.0 cumulative grade point average; sophomores a 1.4 grade point 
average; juniors a 1.5 grade point average and seniors a 1.6 grade 
point average, in order to be considered making satisfactory progress. 
The total number of hours attempted will be used to determine eligibil- 
ity. When a student is not making satisfactory progress, they may 
re-establish their eligibility when they have earned the required 
twenty-four hours and obtained the respective cumulative grade point 


average. All applicants who re-establish their eligibility must have an 
appointment with the Director of Financial Aid prior to receiving finan- 
cial aid again. 

4. Students may not be in default on a student loan at Oglethorpe. 

5. Establish financial need by filing a Financial Aid Form. 

6. Be an undergraduate student who has not previously received a 
Bachelor's degree. Graduate students may apply for financial aid from 
the National Direct Student Loan or the College Work-Study Pro- 

7. Applicants may not be a member of a religious community, society, or 
order who by direction of his/her community, society, or order is 
pursuing a course of study at Oglethorpe, and who receives support 
and maintenance from his community, society, or order. 

8. For purposes of the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant 
program, a student will be considered in exceptional financial need if 
their expected family or parental contribution does not exceed fifty 
percent of the cost of education as established in the Financial Aid 


All awards, except College Work-Study earnings, are disbursed to stu- 
dents by means of a voucher. Each semester, vouchers are prepared for all 
awards and are credited to a student's account after the Director of Finan- 
cial Aid has approved the awards. Each student must acknowledge receipt 
of their awards prior to their being credited to a student's account. 


The application procedure for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant, 
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. 

2. File a Financial Aid Form (FAF) no later than May 1st, indicating that 
Oglethorpe University should receive a copy. 

3. Upon receipt of eligibility report forthe Basic Grant Program, send it to 
the Director of Financial Aid. 

4. Upon receipt of an official award letter, students must notify the Office 
of Financial Aid of their plans for enrollment and reserve accommoda- 
tions by submitting their advance deposit. 

Students applying forthe Georgia Incentive Scholarship submit a separate 
application which may be obtained from a high school counselor or the 
Office of Financial Aid. Students applying forthe Oglethorpe Merit Award for 


scholarship should request an application from the Office of Financial Aid. 
The application procedure for all other assistance programs may be deter- 
mined by contacting the Office of Financial Aid. 


Renewal applications for all programs are available from the Office of 
Financial Aid. Students must meet the eligibility requirements indicated 
above and file the appropriate applications for each program. Deadline for 
receipt of a complete financial aid file is May 1. Applicants whose files 
become complete after this time will be considered based upon availability 
of funds. 

Applications for renewal of Georgia Tuition Grants must be filed no later 
than the last day to register for each semester. 

Renewal of Oglethorpe Merit Award for Scholarships is based upon the 
applicant's accumulated grade point average and participation in extracur- 
ricular activities. Usually a renewal applicant must have at least a 3.0 
cumulative grade point average for a merit scholarship and must have 
earned thirty hours during the preceding academic year. 

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" 
and "making satisfactory progress." 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 and 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 next academic year. 


Oglethorpe offers special awards in recognition of outstanding achieve- 
ment. Students need not apply for these awards as all merit scholarship 
recipients are considered.

is a graduate of an Atlanta public high school and who is studying in the field 
of teacher education. Should there be no eligible applicant, the award may

assistance while working in the field of teacher education. 

The Elliece Johnson Memorial Scholarship, endowed by the late Mrs.

Leadership Awards are available to students with superior academic 
ability and special talents in important fields of extracurricular activity. The 
program will include such activities as debating and public speaking; publi- 
cations, both journalistic and literary; elective office, including student gov- 
ernment; 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 capability 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 assistance, if any, and the annual cost of 

The R.E. Dorough Scholarships are awarded to students of superior 
academic ability who possess special talents in athletics. Scholarships in 
amounts up to full tuition are awarded to students with good character and 
leadership capability who can contribute significantly in one of the fields of 
intercollegiate athletics. The individual amounts of these awards vary. It is 
the intent of this program to provide the difference between the amount of 
other assistance, if any, and the cost of tuition. 


The Thornwell Jacobs Scholarships are highest awards available to 
students who have exceptional academic ability and athletic talent. The 
concept is somewhat like that of the Rhodes Scholarships. This program, 
providing stipends up to the total amount of room, board, and tuition, is 
designed to encourage excellence in intercollegiate athletics and prepara- 
tion for leadership. 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. 

The James Edward Oglethorpe Scholarships are the most generous 
leadership awards offered by the University. These are reserved for stu- 
dents with exceptional academic ability and leadership talent. This program 
provides stipends up to the full amount of room, board, and tuition. The 
program will include such activities as debating and public speaking; publi- 
cations, both journalistic and literary; elective office, including student gov- 
ernment; choral performance; and social service. A basic purpose of 
Oglethorpe is to prepare students for leadership roles. One way of promot- 
ing this purpose is to give special recognition and encouragement to stu- 
dents 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 signifi- 
cant 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. 




The tuition charged by Oglethorpe University represents only seventy 
percent of the actual expense of educating each student, the balance 
coming from endowment income, gifts, and other sources. Thus, every 
Oglethorpe undergraduate is the beneficiary of a hidden scholarship. At the 
same time, 68 percent of the students are awarded additional financial 
assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, and loans from private, 
governmental, or institutional sources. 

The tuition is $1 ,380 per semester. Room and board is $730 per semes- 
ter. Students who desire single rooms are assessed an additional $1 50 per 
semester in all residence halls except Traer Hall. In Traer Hall, the single 
room charge is an additional $175 per semester. 

The tuition of $1 ,380 is applicable to all students taking 12-16 semester 
hours. These are classified as full time students. Students taking less than 
12 hours are referred to the section on Part-Time Fees on page 31. Stu- 
dents taking more than 1 6 hours during a semester are charged $60.00 for 
each additional hour. Tuition and fees for the fall term are due on August 1 5, 
1 979. Tuition and fees for the Spring term are due on December 31,1 979. 
Failure to make the necessary payments will result in the cancellation of the 
student's registration. Students receiving financial aid are required to pay 
the difference between the amount of their aid and the amount due by the 
above deadlines. Students and parents desiring to pay expenses in install- 
ments are advised to investigate their lending institutions or other sources 
such as Tuition Plan, Inc. Information about such plans is listed in the 
section on financial assistance. New students who require on-campus 
housing for the fall term are required to submit an advance deposit of $200. 
New commuting students are required to submit an advance deposit of 
$1 00. Such deposits are not refundable. However, one half of the deposit is 
credited to the student's account for the fall term. The other half is credited 
to the account for the spring term. 

Upon payment of the room and board fees, each student is covered by a 
basic Health and Accident policy. Full-time students residing off campus 
may purchase this insurance for $40.00 per year. In addition, any student 
covered by the basic policy may purchase the Major Medical Plan for 
$10.50 a year. International students, students participating in any intercol- 
legiate sport, and students participating in intramural football or basketball 
are required to have this major medical coverage or its equivalent. 

In addition to the tuition and room and board charges, students may be 
required to subscribe to the following: 

1. 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 re- 
funds. This deposit is payable at fall registration. Students who begin 
in the spring term are also assessed the $100 damage deposit. 
2. GRADUATING SENIOR: Diploma fee of $15.00. 
The following lists the total cost for certain student classifications:

These schedules do not include the extra cost of single rooms, books 
(approximately $200 per year), or travel and personal expenses. All fees 
are subject to change. 


Students enrolled part-time in day classes during the Fall or Spring 
semesters will be charged $100 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 
$1 70 per three semester hour course. 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 



All students enrolled in Summer School will be assessed $1 70 per three 
semester hour course. The rate for four-hour lab courses is $226 plus a 
$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 student must officially drop the class by the end of the twentieth 

Students should note that any change of academic schedule must be 
cleared by the Registrar'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 respon- 
sibility 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 pay- 
ments to the student. Reinstatement in a course is at the discretion of the 

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 submitted to the Registrar will be the official 
date for withdrawal. 



The establishment of a refund policy is based on the University's commit- 
ment 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 commit- 
ment by admitting and providing the necessary programs for all students 
and feels the students must also demonstrate a commitment in their aca- 
demic program. 

Since insurance coverage begins on the payment date and the fee is not 
retained by the University, it will not be refunded after registration day. A 
$1 00 fee will be retained by Oglethorpe as a processing fee when a student 
withdraws; all other fees except the advance deposit (i.e., 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 re- 
minded 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.

In order to administer the refund policy equitably, there will be no excep-

students and will be mailed on an announced day from the Business Office. 
No refund will be processed until classes have ceased for the semester in 


Student Life 


Oglethorpe University seeks to prepare its students for roles of leader- 
ship in society. Many colleges mention this as one of their goals. At most 
institutions, this is simply a part of the rhetoric of higher education. However, 
at Oglethorpe, specific educational experiences are planned to help the 
student acquire the arts of leadership. 

Education for leadership must be based on the essential academic 
competencies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Though widely 
neglected today at all levels of education, these are the prerequisites for 
effective leadership. They are the marks of an educated person. Oglethorpe 
insists that its students achieve advanced proficiency in these skills. In 
addition, students are offered specific preparation in the arts of leadership. 
Such arts include an appreciation of constructive values, the setting of 
goals, public speaking, human relations, and organizational skills. 

This philosophy presents an excellent opportunity for the able young 
person who is striving for a significant life, including leadership in the 
improvement of our community and our society. 


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 program to provide these relationships, as well as 
much needed information about the University. 

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 advising 
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 expenence, a Freshman Seminar is held 
weekly duhng 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 students, having com- 
pleted the orientation program 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 an 
expression of its confidence 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 integ- 
rity 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 

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. 


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, consisting of the President, Vice-President, 
Secretary, Treasurer, and Parliamentarian 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 partici- 
pation in approved campus 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 achieve- 
ment. Students are especially encouraged to join professional organiza- 
tions associated with their interests and goals. The value of a student's 
participation is a major consideration in determining scholarships.

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

The three fraternities are Chi Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Kappa 
Alpha. The national sorority is Chi Omega. The local sorority is Gamma 
Delta Epsilon. 

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. 


At Oglethorpe University the students who participate in intercollegiate 
competition are considered to be, first, students, and second, athletes. All 
students engaged in athletics must satisfy the same academic require- 
ments as other students. There are no scholarships which are based solely 
on the athletic ability of the student. However, Oglethorpe sponsors a 
program of Merit Awards which are described in another section of this 
bulletin. Most students participating in intercollegiate athletics have won 
Merit Awards in amounts ranging from $500 to $4,220 per year. 


Oglethorpe University competes in the following intercollegiate competi- 
tion: basketball, track, cross country, soccer, and tennis. 

In addition to the intercollegiate competition, a well rounded program of 
intramural sports is offered and has strong participation by the student 
body. Men participate in football, volleyball, basketball, and softball. 
Women participate in volleyball, tennis, bowling, and softball. 


There is increasing interest on the campus in practical experience which 
complements the traditional academic program. Oglethorpe offers field 
experience assignments to prepare the student who seeks employment 
immediately upon graduation. This experience is designed to bridge theory 
and practice by involving the student in a field related to his major program. 


The Counseling Service at Oglethorpe provides confidential professional 
assistance to students experiencing personal problems of a psychological, 
social, or circumstantial nature. Though academic advising is the responsi- 
bility of individually-assigned faculty advisors, students encountering un- 
usual academic difficulties may wish to consult a counselor regarding 
possible contributing factors. Assistance in developing effective study skills 
is also available both in special workshops 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 obtain- 
ing appropriate job placement can receive help from the Office of Career 
Development. An extensive career development library is maintained con- 
taining 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 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 Oglethorpe campus is located eight miles north of downtown Atlanta. 
This proximity to the South's greatest city offers Oglethorpe students many 
cultural advantages. The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs during the 
fall and winter months in the Memorial Arts Center. The Atlanta Ballet 
Company schedules performances from November through March. Both 
The Theatre of the Stars and the Alliance Theatre Company present pro- 
ductions of contemporary and classical plays. These are only illustrative of 
the wide range of cultural opportunities offered by Atlanta. Student dis- 
counts are available for many performances. 


The residence halls are available to all full time studerits. There are five 
men's residence halls and two women's halls. Both complexes have a 
Resident Director and 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. Nineteen 
meals are served each week. No breakfast is served on Saturday or 
Sunday. Instead a brunch is served from mid-morning until early afternoon. 


The evening meal is also served on these days. Meal tickets are issued at 


All resident students subscribe to the Student Health and Insurance Plan 
provided by the University. 

The University maintains a small health center staffed by a registered 
nurse. The health center operates on a regular schedule, and provides 
basic first aid service and limited medical assistance for students covered 
by the student insurance plan. 

A physician visits the health center twice a week to make general diagno- 
sis 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 relation- 
ships at the University or in the community, the student will be requested to 
withdraw. Re-admission to the University will be contingent upon accept- 
able 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 ser- 
vices 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. It is mailed to all new students in late

Academic Regulations 


The University recognizes attendance at classes as the responsibility of 
the student. Students are held accountable for all 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 all 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: 

A Superior 4.0 

B Good 3.0 

C Satisfactory 2.0 

D Passing 1 .0 

F Failure 0.0 

E Failure: Excessive absences 0.0 

G Withdrawn 0.0 

H Withdrawn Failing 0.0 

I Incomplete 0.0 

P Passing (used in special cases) 
AU 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 minimum 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. 



A minimum of 1 20 semester hours is required, of which the last sixty must 
be earned at Oglethorpe except in exceptional cases (see page 18). 

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

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 faculty. 


The requirements for specific majors vary among the disciplines. De- 
tailed 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 require- 
ments: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Business Ad- 
ministration, and Masterof Arts in Elementary Education. Under the Bache- 
lor 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, Philosophy, Political Studies, 
Psychology, and Sociology. Under the Bachelor of Science, majors pro- 
grams are offered in the following areas: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, 
Physics, and Medical Technology. Under the Bachelor of Business Ad- 
ministration, majors programs are offered in the following areas: Account- 
ing, Business Administration, and Economics. 

Under certain conditions, it is also possible for a student to receive a 
degree from Oglethorpe under "Professional option." Through this arrange- 
ment 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 met. 



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 standing 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 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 civm laude; for a cumulative average 3.7, the degree magna 
cum laude; for a cumulative average 3.9, the degree summa cum laude. 


To comply with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974, com- 
monly 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 personal 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. 


General Information 


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. 


As a service to the community, the University offers an evening program 
covering three terms per year: one during each semester and one during 
the summer. Classes meet two nights each week (Monday and Wednes- 
day; 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 
courses in the evening. A student taking any course during the day will not 
be classified as an evening student. 


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 aca- 
demics. From time to time, business and professional workshops and 
conferences are sponsored by this department. New courses to develop 
skills in leadership and communication will be offered. Additional informa- 
tion is available from the Dean of Continuing Education. The telephone 
numbers are 261-1441 and 233-6662. 


The Curriculum 


Oglethorpe's curriculum is arranged in six general divisions: Hunnanities; 
Social Studies; Science; Education and Behavioral Sciences; Business and 
Economics; and Graduate Studies. Academic areas included within each 
are the following: 

Division I: The Humanities 

English Music 

Literature Philosophy 

Foreign Languages Religion 

Division II: Social Studies 

Political Studies 

Division III: Science 

Biology Medical Technology 

Chemistry Physics 


Division IV: Education and Behavioral Sciences 

Elementary Education Sociology 

Secondary Education Social Work 


Division V: Business and Economics 

Accounting Economics 

Business Administration 

Division VI: Graduate 

M.A. Elementary Education 

Under the semester system, the curriculum offers courses of three and 
four hours credit. A full-time student carries a normal academic load of five 
courses duhng each term. 

A minimum of one hundred and twenty hours (or their equivalent for 
transfer students) is necessary for graduation. Some programs may require 
additional credit. A core program according to the following schedule is 
required of all four-year students. 



At Oglethorpe University, each student is required to complete a cohe- 
sive group of courses. It is the opinion of the faculty that these courses are 
essential to a well rounded undergraduate course of study. Some institu- 
tions have distribution requirements. That is, students are required to take a 
certain number of credit hours in each department. However it is our belief 
that this "cafeteria notion" of course selection is less successful in providing 
essential knowledge and skills than is the planned and cohesive core which 
is required at Oglethorpe. 

In addition, it continues to be University policy to provide instruction of the 
highest quality in the core courses. No graduate assistants are used. The 
courses are taught by well-trained faculty members. It is not unusual to find 
a large percentage of these courses taught by senior faculty members. 

The following is the core program: 

Western Civilization One of the following: 3 hours 

I and II 6 hours Music Appreciation 

United States Government .... 3 hours Art Appreciation

'Exemption may be granted based upon the student's scores on the composition placement test. This test Is usually 
administered the day before registration, 
"One of the following may be substituted for this requirement — Biology I, Biology II, Botany I, Botany II. 
■■"One of the following may be substituted for this requirement — Chemistry I, Chemistry II. Physics I. Physics II, Principles of 
Science I, Principles of Science II, 


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 prereq- 
uisites. 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 semes- 
ters 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 complet- 
ing 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 recom- 
mended 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 

Accounting History 

Biology Mathematics 

Business Administration Medical Technology 

Chemistry Philosophy 

Economics Physics 

Education-Elementary Political Studies 

Education-Secondary Psychology

General Studies 


Students seeking a broadly based educational experience involving the 
types of programs generally found at a liberal arts college as well as the 
specialized training offered by a professional college may consider a dual 
degree opportunity. Oglethorpe University and The Atlanta College of Art 
offer a joint program for students interested in a career in the visual arts. In 
this program, the student enrolls at Oglethorpe for two years, completes 
sixty semester hours of work, including the core requirements, and then 
enrolls at The Atlanta College of Art for approximately three years. 

The student is required to complete 3 credit hours in Art Appreciation and 
at least 6 credit hours in Art Studio electives at Oglethorpe. In addition, the 


Student completes six credit hours in second semester Foundation Design 
at The Atlanta College of Art, preferably during the fourth semester at 
Oglethorpe. (This requirement or an equal substitute must be met before 
the student is enrolled for Introductory Studio classes at ACA.) 

Upon successful completion of all of the core requirements plus the 
aforementioned art electives, the student enrolls at The Atlanta College of 
Art and completes 78 credit hours in Introductory and Advanced Studio and 
12 credit hours in Art History electives. 

Upon completion of the joint program, the student receives the degree of 
Bachelor of Arts from Oglethorpe and the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts 
from The Atlanta College of Art. Students participating in the dual-degree 
program must meet the entrance requirements of both institutions. 


Oglethorpe University is associated with the Georgia Institute of Technol- 
ogy and Auburn University in combined programs of liberal arts and engi- 
neering. The programs require the student to complete three years at 
Oglethorpe University and the final two years at one of the engineering 
schools. The three years at Oglethorpe include general education courses 
and prescribed courses in mathematics and the physical sciences. The two 
years of technical education require the completion of courses in one of the 
branches of engineering. 

The recommendation of the engineering advisory committee at the end of 
the three years of liberal studies is sufficient to guarantee the student's 
admission to the engineering programs. In this combined plan, the two 
degrees which are awarded upon the successful completion of the program 
are the degree of Bachelor of Arts by Oglethorpe University and the degree 
of Bachelor of Science in Engineering by the engineering school. Because 
the pre-engineering programs are tightly structured and the requirements of 
the engineering schools are slightly different, the student is well advised to 
consult early and frequently with the members of the engineering advisory 


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

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 including at least 1 8 semes- 


ter hours in one discipline and 12 semester hours in another discipline (in 
the first category no nnore than two courses could be core requirements, 
and in the second category only one could be a core requirement); and 
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, Post-Nursing and Metro Life Studies. 

Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Studies 

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 medical 
schools is available in the annual bulletin of the Association of American 
Medical Colleges. 

Specific premedical course requirements vary among the schools. How- 
ever, all recognize the importance of a broad educational background. A 
coordinated program which includes extensive study in the natural sci- 
ences, development of communication skills, and study of the social sci- 
ences 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 recog- 
nized that medical schools set certain minimum science and mathematics 
requirements for applicants. These minimum requirements can be met by 
completion of the following courses: General Chemistry I and II, Biology I 
and II, Calculus 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 professional programs 
at the end of the junior year. Credit is awarded at Oglethorpe for the 
academic credit earned during the first year of medical school.

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) de- 
pending upon their special needs and interests. These courses are deter-

College. Successful completion of the R.N. degree and the 60 semester

The requirements for a major in political studies are satisfactory comple- 
tion of at least ten of the courses listed below as well as five history 
electives. (Elective courses in economics, sociology, and mathematics may 
be substituted for as many as two of the history electives.) 

Scheduling should be coordinated by a faculty member in political stu- 
dies. Political studies majors who plan to attend law school should plan their 
schedule with the assistance of a political studies professor who is a 
PRE-LAW advisor. 

Undergraduate students planning to enter law school after graduation 
from Oglethorpe should realize that neither leading law schools nor the 
American Bar Association endorse a particular pre-law major. The student 
is advised, however, to take courses that enhance the basic skills of a 
liberally educated person: reading with comprehension, writing, speaking, 
and reasoning in quantitative terms. The student is encouraged to become 
more familiar with political, economic, and social institutions as they have 
developed historically and as they function in contemporary society. Stu- 
dents are referred to the Pre-Law Handbook, which is available from the 
pre-law advisors, for a more complete discussion of the desirable aspects of 
a pre-law curriculum.

Division IV Education 
And Behavioral Sciences 

Education provides courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Elementary 
and Secondary Education, with concentrations in Secondary Education 
available in the subject areas of English, mathematics, political science, 
biology, physics, chemistry, history, and behavioral sciences-sociology. 
The teacher preparation curricula are fully approved by the Georgia State 
Department of Education; successful program completion is necessary for 
obtaining a teaching certificate. Students desiring certification in other 
states should secure information from such states. 


Completion of the Teacher Education Program requires the following 

1. Admission to the Teacher Education Program. Apply during second 
semester of the sophomore year or, for transfer students, after having 
attended Oglethorpe for one semester. 

2. Completion of a pre-teaching experience — "September Experi- 
ence." Apply for placement after completion of sophomore year. 

3. Completion of Student Teaching. Apply for placement by April 15 of 
junior year. 

4. Completion of entire approved program as found on the following 
pages. Professional courses should be completed according to the 
sequence listed in the approved program. 

Admission to Oglethorpe University does not admit a student to the 
Teacher Education Program. A person doing satisfactory academic work 
and approved by the Teacher Education Committee is admitted. Once 
admitted, the student's progress and record are subject to regular review by 
the advisor, other professors, and the Teacher Education Committee. No 
student on academic probation will be scheduled to do student teaching 
until such probation is removed. 

Admission to and retention in the Teacher Education Program are based 
in general on the following characteristics and achievements: evidence of 
good moral character and personality; evidence of emotional stability and 
physical stamina; a desire to work with children and/or youth; demonstra- 
tion of proficiency in oral and written English; a cumulative average of at 
least 2.2 with no grade less than "C" in a professional course; evidence of 
responsibility in student endeavors. 


Completion of the approved program is one of three required steps 
toward teacher certification in Georgia. Students also have to demonstrate 
competency in the subject field by making a satisfactory score on a state 
administered criterion-referenced test and must demonstrate the ability to 
perform competently in the classroom setting. Forms needed to apply for 
the Georgia teaching certificate are available in the office of the Director of 
Teacher Education. 

Approved programs leading to teacher certification in Georgia are 
described in the following sections. All approved programs include the 
requirements for meeting core requirements at Oglethorpe. They may 
require more general education than is required to meet the core require- 
ments for graduation, or they may require certain courses which may be 
applied to the core; careful advisement is necessary on the part of all 
students preparing to teach. Public speaking is a suggested elective for all 
education majors. 


General education requirements must include Biology I and II, Physical 
Science or Principles of Science, College Math, American History I and II; 
otherwise regular core requirements should be met. 

Professional and teaching field courses to be taken during the sopho- 
more year are Child and Adolescent Psychology, Elementary Preparation 
in Health and Physical Education, and Introduction to Education. The junior 
year courses must be taken in sequence: Fall — Elementary School Lan- 
guage Arts, Mathematics in the Elementary School, Elementary School Art; 
Spring — Science in the Elementary School, Social Studies in the Elemen- 
tary School, Elementary School Music and Teaching of Reading. Educa- 
tional Psychology and the Learning Problems Practicum should be taken 
during the junior or senior year. Normally the last semester will be devoted 
to Elementary Curriculum (four weeks) and Student Teaching (eleven 
weeks). Electives are available in Developmental Reading and in Early 
Childhood Education and may be taken during the junior or senior year. 
Courses in Elementary Education are structured so that the student can 
choose a concentration in either early childhood (K-4) or middle grades 


All secondary education programs require Biological Science, Physical 
Science (or appropriate specialized courses for science majors) and two 
courses in mathematics (to include College Mathematics) in addition to, or 
as part of, the general core. 


All secondary education programs require the following courses in Pro- 
fessional Education: Introduction to Education, Child and Adolescent Psy- 
chology (sophomore); Secondary Curriculum, Educational Psychology, 
Learning Problems Practicum (junior or senior). Secondary Methods and 
Materials (first four weeks) and Student Teaching (last eleven weeks) 
comprise the student teaching semester, which is normally the last semes- 
ter of the senior year. 

Teaching field requirements for the various approved programs follow 
(some required courses are satisfied through core requirements):

Division VI Graduate 

Studies In Elementary Education 


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 anticipated 
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 administration, under the leadership of the 
chairman of the Graduate Division. 

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, includ- 
ing 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 the 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 research. 


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 general requirements prescribed, the applicant must 
submit transcripts of all previous work completed, satisfactory scores on the 
Graduate Record Examination (Aptitude Test), two recommendations 
(form provided) from previous colleges attended and/or employers and, 
when deemed necessary, take validating examinations or preparatory 
work. Candidates not previously prepared for teaching must meet require- 
ments 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 
$20.00 application fee (non-refundable). All material (completed forms, fee, 
transcripts, and test scores) should be sent directly to the Office of Admis- 
sions, 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 Admis- 
sions of the change and indicate a new date of entrance, if applicable. 
Otherwise, the original admission will be canceled, 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 Exam- 
ination may be obtained from the Office of Admissions or by writing: Educa- 
tion 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 regular graduate 


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 chair- 
man 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 educa- 
tion 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 study in good standing in another recognized graduate 
school who wishes to enroll in the Graduate Division of Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity 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 registra- 
tion 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 certifi- 
cation 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 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. 
Graduate summer sessions may vary slightly either as to dates or length of 



Courses numbered 6000 are open only to graduate students. Some 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 research. 

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 satis- 
factory 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. 


Candidates for the master's degree must meet the following academic 
1 . The student's overall grade point average for work submitted in a 
graduate program must be 3.0 or higher. 


2. If, in any case, the candidate fails to maintain satisfactory academic 
standards, a review by the Graduate Council will determine the 
student's continuation in a graduate program. 


Application for the Master of Arts degree in elementary education must be 
filed with the chairman of the Graduate Division after the student has twelve 
semester hours of graduate study at Oglethorpe University. Application for 
admission to candidacy would be given or refused following an examination 
of the overall work of the student and careful review of the work completed 
at Oglethorpe. Notice of action taken on application for admission to candi- 
dacy would be given in writing to the student and to the student's advisor. 
The student seeking the Master of Arts degree in elementary education 
must furnish certification by the chairman of the Education Department of 
eligibility for first professional certification or include appropriate make-up 
work in the program. 


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 twelve 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 comprehen- 
sive examination) must be completed within a six-year period. It is expected 
that the student will complete the program with reasonable continutiy. 

Transfer, Extension, Correspondence Credit. A maximum of six se- 
mester 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 completed 
within the six-year period allowed for the completion of degree require- 
ments; (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 correspondence 
work be applied toward satisfaction of degree requirements. 



A comprehensive final examination is required of all candidates 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 

1. The student must be registered when taking the examination. 

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

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


Graduate students are charged at the rate of $1 90.00 per three semester 
hour course. An application fee (non-refundable) of $20.00 must accom- 
pany 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. 


Students who find it necessary to drop courses or change courses must 
secure an approval drop slip from the Registrar. Refunds are subject to the 
same requirements as explained in the chapter on Finances.
