Tradition and 

Oglethorpe derives its educational mission from an awareness and 
appreciation of the University's heritage and from an analysis of the needs 
of a rapidly changing society. 


Three main ideas or models of what higher education ought to be have 
shaped American colleges and universities. 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 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 1862. 
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 183 5 and named after General lames 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 
lohn Henry Newman's The Idea of a University, one of the great educational 
classics. Briefly stated, four characteristics have made this kind of college 
widely admired: 

1) Colleges in the English tradition emphasize broad education for in- 
telligent 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 competencies 
— 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 essential 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 
information (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, 
residential life, athletics, formal and informal social functions, aesthetic 
experiences, and contact with students from other cultures, in addition to 
classroom exercises, all have their proper place. Versatility and ability to lead 
are important goals of this type of undergraduate education. 

TWo other aspects of Oglethorpe's tradition were contributed by Philip 
Weltner, president of the University from 1944 to 1953. Dr. Weltner viewed 
education in the arts and sciences as entirely consistent with and, in fact, the 
best kind of initial preparation for a career. In an essay entitled the "Oglethorpe 
Idea ' he advocated an educational experience designed to forge the strongest 
possible links between academic competencies and the skills needed in ones 
career. He stressed that an Oglethorpe education should prepare the student 
to make a life and to make a living. Secondly, Dr. Weltner articulated a con- 
ception of Oglethorpe's role that has endured as a fundamental principle of 
the University. Oglethorpe, he said, should strive to be . . . "a small college 
which is superlatively good." Only at a small college with carefully selected 
students and faculty, he believed, could young persons achieve their fullest 
intellectual development through an intense dialogue with extraordinary 
teachers. Thus, limited size and an emphasis on superior performance are 
essential characteristics of Oglethorpe today. 

Preparation for a Changing Society 

The rapidly changing society in which we live places a premium on 
adaptability. Persons in positions of leadership must be able to function 
effectively in changing circumstances. Rigid specialization, with its training in 
current practice, ill prepares a college graduate for responsibilities in such 
a society. The broadly educated person, schooled in fundamental principles, 
is better equipped to exercise leadership in a world that is being transformed 
by high technology and new information. This point has been well made by 
John Naisbitt in the first chapter of his notable book Megatrends. One of the 
underlying trends he identifies in our society is that "we are moving from 
the specialist who is soon obsolete to the generalist who can adapt." This 
is the reason for Oglethorpe's emphasis on the preparation of the humane 
generalist — the kind of leader needed by a complex and changing society. 


In striving to combine excellence with a personalized approach in its 
curriculum, campus life, and student activities, Oglethorpe seeks to reflect 
this tradition and to produce graduates who display particular abilities, skills, 
intellectual attitudes, and sensitivities. These attributes are seen as 
indispensable to the educated person and as having been neglected in many 
schools and colleges in recent years. They are: 

1) The ability to comprehend English prose at an advanced level. 

2) The ability to convey ideas in writing and in speech accurately, 
grammatically, and persuasively. 

3) Skill in reasoning logically about important matters. 

4) An understanding of Western civilization and of the values and 
principles that have shaped it. 

5) A knowledge and appreciation of great literature, especially the great 
literature of the English-speaking world. 

6) An appreciation of great art and great music and some understanding 
of why they are great. 

7) An acquaintance with the methods of inquiry of mathematics and 
science and with the results of the efforts of scientists to understand physical 
and biological phenomena. 

8) An understanding of the most thoughtful reflections on right and 
wrong and an allegiance to principles of right conduct. 

9) A basic knowledge of our economic and political systems and of 
the psychological and sociological influences on human behavior. 

10) A deeper grasp of one or more fields of knowledge organized 
coherently as a major. 

11) An inclination to continue ones learning after graduation from college 
and skill in the use of books and other intellectual tools for that purpose. 

12) The willingness and ability to assume the responsibilities of leadership 
in public and private life. This includes skill in organizing the efforts of other 
persons in behalf of worthy causes. 

These are the educational goals that all Oglethorpe students are 
expected to achieve, and the "core courses" are the principal means of doing 
so. The student's major mentioned in 10) above may be pursued in a single 
field, such as biology, economics, or English: or it may cut across two or more 
traditional fields (an interdisciplinary or individually planned major). In addition 
to majors in the arts and sciences the University offers professional programs 
in business administration and teacher education, both of which are based 
on an arts and sciences foundation. 

The success of Oglethorpe alumni in their personal lives, in graduate 
and professional schools, and in a wide variety of occupations attests to the 
balance and the thoroughness of this curriculum. 

Oglethorpe was chartered on December 21, 183 5, as a result of the 
efforts of a group of Georgia Presbyterians. The founders named the new 
college after General lames Edward Oglethorpe, the distinguished leader of 
Georgia in its earliest days. 

The University began operations on lanuary 1 , 1 838, at Midway, a small 
town near Milledgeville, then the state capital, with 1 2 5 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 time, Samuel 
K. Talmage, provided gifted leadership and gathered about him a faculty of 
unusual ability, at least two of whom would achieve national distinctions: 
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 distinguished 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 stability and academic soundness, but its life and service were 
suddenly cut short in the 1 860's as the University became a casualty of war. 
Her students marched away to become Confederate soldiers: her endowment 
was lost in Confederate bonds: her buildings were converted to barracks and 
a hospital. Toward the end of the war General William T. Shermans army, 
during its destructive march to the sea, visited the University but left the 
property intact. 

In 1866 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 determination 
of Thornwell lacobs, a noted Presbyterian minister, to reestablish Oglethorpe. 
He enlisted the support of Presbyterian churches throughout the South and 
East and of influential individuals and groups in Atlanta. His vision materialized 
in 1915 with the laying of the cornerstone of the first building (later named 
Phoebe Hearst Memorial Hall) on the present campus. Oglethorpe alumni 
from the classes of 1860 and 1861 were present for the historic ceremony, 
thus linking the old Oglethorpe with the new. 

Dr. lacobs was subsequently named president, serving in that capacity 
until 1944. During that time the University grew in size and reputation. 
Throughout the 1 920's the institution received substantial contributions from 
individuals such as j. T. Lupton, Mrs. Robert I. 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. lacobs, was soon recognized 
as one of the South's most innovative educational institutions. In 1931, WITL, 
one of the first campus radio stations in the United States, was established 
at Oglethorpe. A few years later. Dr. lacobs began his work on "The Crypt 


of Civilization, " located in a vault in Phoebe Hearst Hall. This is a collection 
of 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 American. General David Sarnoff, 
founder and Chairman of the Board of the Radio Corporation of America 
(R.C.A.), spoke at the dedication of the Crypt in 1940. 

Several other interesting projects began during the Jacobs administra- 
tion, including an unsuccessful attempt to relocate the remains of General 
lames Oglethorpe from England to the Oglethorpe campus. In the late 1930s 
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. The University received national attention in 1932, when President 
Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke on the campus and received an honorary degree. 

A new chapter opened in the history of Oglethorpe in 1 944 when Philip 
Weltner assumed the presidency and, with a group of faculty associates, 
including Gerhart Niemeyer, George Seward, and Wendell Brown, initiated 
a new and exciting approach to undergraduate education 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 was developed. 

The University continued to make steady progress during the 
presidencies of I. Whitney Bunting, Donald Wilson, Donald C. Agnew, and 
Paul R. Beall. Throughout this 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 longtime dean and an acting president. 

The presidency changed hands once again in 1967, when 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, Goslin Hall. In addition, 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 education, 
the attraction of students from abroad, increasing selectivity in admissions, 
and the acceleration of financial development are other areas that have 
received particular attention. 

Oglethorpe University has had a long and exciting history and has 
produced 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 region.

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 computer 
center was completed in 1977. The University book store is located on the 
lower level of the building. 

The dominant feature of the building is the beautiful Great Hall, the site 
of many traditional and historic events at Oglethorpe. Located on the ground

Application for Admission 

Throughout its history, Oglethorpe has welcomed students from all 
sections of this country, as well as from abroad, as candidates for degrees. 
It is the policy of the Admissions Committee to select for admission to the 
University those applicants who present the strongest evidence of purpose, 
maturity scholastic ability, and probable success at Oglethorpe. In making 
its judgments, the Committee considers the nature of students' high school 
programs, their grades, the recommendations of their counselors and teachers, 
and their scores on the SAT or the ACT. In recent years, the Admissions 
Committee has become increasingly selective. Admission is competitive, and 
the academic ability of the Oglethorpe student body is well above the average 
for the region and the country. 

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 the American College Testing Program Assessment (ACT). 

It is to the applicant's advantage to take the American College Test or 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test as early as possible during the senior year in 
high school or earlier. 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 the College Entrance Examination 
Board, Box 592, Princeton, New lersey 08540. 

The Oglethorpe application form contains a list of the materials which 
must be submitted by the applicant. No application will 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 

Credit by Examination 

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 60 semester hours of credit will be accepted 
through these programs. 

College Level Examination Program — CLEP 

Within the testing program are two categories. The General Examinations 
cover the areas of English Composition, Humanities, Mathematics, Natural 
Science, and Social Science — History. A maximum of 30 semester hours may 
be earned with acceptable scores in the General Examination. 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 

a particular course. A minimum acceptable score of 50 in a subject examination 
is required for credit. 

Advanced Placement Program 

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 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 place- 
ment grades of 3, 4, or 5: neither credit nor exemption will be given for a 
grade of 2; maximum credit to be allowed to any student for advanced place- 
ment tests will be 30 semester hours. 

Transfer Students 

Applicants for transfer from other recognized institutions of higher 
learning 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 

The same information is required of the transfer student as for the 
entering freshman, with the following exception: 

High school records and test scores are not required of students 
having more than one full year of transferable credit. 

Transfer students must submit transcripts of all current and previous 
college work. A separate official transcript from each college attended must 
be received before any action will be taken on the application. 

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 on probation or exclusion from another institution will 
not be accepted, with the following exception: 

Students who have not been enrolled in any institution for five 
years will be considered for admission by the Admission 

Tl-ansfer students having a GPA of less than 2.3 (on a 4.0 scale) will 
automatically be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. 

Oglethorpe does not accept a "D" grade as transfer credit, unless a 
student has graduated from an accredited junior college, or a "D" grade is 
followed by a "C" grade or better in a normal sequence course (i.e.. General 
Biology I and II). 


TVansfer 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 Faculty 
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 scholarships 
are open to transfer students as well as new freshmen. 

Oglethorpe University will accept as many as 30 hours of United States 
Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) credit. Students with at least six months active 
military experience may be granted three hours credit for that experience. 
Students who serve for two years or more may receive six hours credit. 

Special and Transient Students 

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

Special students are defined as those students not working toward a 
degree at Oglethorpe. They are limited to a maximum of five courses (15

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 comnnon 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 
Pell Grant (Basic Educational Opportunity Grant) and the Georgia Incentive 
Scholarship if a resident, in completing the Financial Aid Form, the student 
will receive an acknowledgement from College Scholarship Service and his 
Student Aid Report for the Pell Grant Program. When the report is received. 
it should be forwarded to the Director of Financial Aid. Students may receive 
several types of aid to complete their "package" of financial assistance. 

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

Pell Grant (Basic Educational Opportunity Grant) is a federal aid 
program intended to be the floor in financial assistance. Eligibility is based 
upon a family's financial resources and a rationing formula published by the 
government. Applications for this program may be obtained from the Office 
of Financial Aid or from a high school guidance office. This aid is administered 
in the form of non-repayable grants. 

Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG) do not require 
repayment. The size of the grant depends on the need of the individual 
recipient. To qualify for an SEOG, a student must be enrolled or accepted 
for enrollment, and must be capable of maintaining normal progress toward 
the achievement of a degree. Application for these funds is made by filing 
a Financial Aid Form. 

National Direct Student Loans (NDSL), are long-term, low-cost educa- 
tional loans to students 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 five per cent annual rate be- 
ginning six 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, a vol- 
unteer under Title 1 - Part A of the Domestic Volunteer Service Act, a full- 
time volunteer in a similar tax-exempt organization 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 (CWSP) permits a student 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 Incentive Scholarship (GIS), as defined by the Georgia Student 
Finance Authority is a "program created by an act of the 1974 Georgia General 
Assembly in order to establish a program of need-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 de- 


signed to provide only a portion of the student's resources in financing the 
total cost of post-secondary education. 

Georgia TUition Equalization Grant (GTEG) is available for Georgia 
residents who attend full-time and seek their degree at Oglethorpe. The 
program was established by an Act of the 1971 Georgia General Assembly 
The Georgia Higher Education Assistance Authority defines the program in 
this way: "The purpose of the Act is to provide tuition assistance to Georgia 
resident students who are desirous of pursuing their higher education goals 
in a private Georgia college or university but find the financial cost prohibitive 
due primarily to high 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 1983-84 school year, this grant was $700 per academic year. 
Financial need is not a factor in determining eligibility A separate application 
is required. 

Guaranteed Student Loans (GSL) and Federally Insured Student Loans 
(FISL) are long-term loans available through banks, credit unions, and other 
lending institutions. Students desiring to seek a loan in this manner should 
consult with the Director of Financial Aid for additional information. A student 
must earn 30 semester hours each 12 months in order to continue to receive 
this loan. 

Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) are relatively long- 
term loans available through banks, credit unions, and other lending 
institutions. Parents desiring to seek a loan from this program should consult 
with the Office of Financial Aid for additional information. 

Oglethorpe Scholars Award (OSA) are awarded in amounts of $500 to 
$2000. 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 constitute 
important criteria for awarding these scholarships. The OSA 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. 

Presidential Scholarships provide a stipend as high as 80 per cent of 
tuition for the four years of undergraduate study. To receive this award, a 
candidate must rank in the top 1 per cent of his graduating class, have achieved 
a combined score of at least 1200 on the SAT or a composite score of 28 
on the ACT, and have demonstrated superior leadership qualities in secondary 
school. These scholarships are awarded by the President of the University 
upon the nomination by the Director of Admissions and with the unqualified 
recommendation of the candidate's secondary school. 

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

Dual-degree students in art and engineering will not be allowed to extend 
Oglethorpe scholarship and funds to other institutions after fall semester, 1982.

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

3. Student must maintain "satisfactory progress" in the course of study.

12 months in order to continue receiving financial aid. Part-time students must

In addition, students must remain in good standing. The following 
standards are used to determine good standing: 

Number of Hours Completed Grade-Point Average 

0-35 1.5 

36-65 1.75 

66 and above 2.0 

A student determined by the Director of Financial Aid not to be meeting 
these standards will not receive financial assistance. However, a determination 
may be withheld for a semester if illness, injury or disability can be proven 
to be factors contributing directly to the student's poor performance. 

Students not making satisfactory progress may re-establish eligibility 
when they have earned the required 24 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 
financial aid again.

a refund on a previous federal program.

members of the faculty or staff in order to be considered for an award. 

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


Fees and Costs 

The fees, costs, and dates listed below are for 1983-84. The fees for 
1984-85 will be determined in October and will be approximately 10 per cent 

The tuition charged by Oglethorpe University represents only 71 per 
cent 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, 
75 per cent 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 $2,24 5 per semester. Room and board is $1,2 30 per 
semester. Students who desire single rooms are assessed an additional $240 
per semester in all residence halls except Tl'aer Hall, Trustees Hall, and Alumni 
Hall, in these, the single room charge is an additional $290 per semester. 

The tuition of $2,245 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 37. Students taking 
more than 16 hours during a semester are charged $7 5 for each additional 
hour. Payment of tuition and fees is due two weeks prior to Registration Day 
each semester. 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 deadline. Students and parents desiring to pay expenses in 
installments should contact their lending, institutions or other sources such 
as Tuition Plan, Inc., or EFI-Fund Management. 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 $100. 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 $48 per year. In addition, any student covered 
by the basic policy may purchase the Major Medical Plan for $20 a year. 
International students, students participating in any intercollegiate sport, and 
students participating in intramural football or basketball are required to have 
this major medical coverage or its equivalent. 

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

i, DAMAGE DEPOSIT A $100 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 checkout procedure completed 
prior to issuance of damage deposit refunds. This deposit is payable at fall 
registration. Students who begin in the spring term must also pay the $100 
damage deposit. 


2. GRADUATING SENIOR; Graduation fee of $40. The following lists the 
total payments for certain student classifications: (Fees for 1984-85 will be 
approximately 10 per cent higher than those listed below).

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

Part-Time Fees 

Fees for 1984-85 will be approximately 10 per cent higher than that listed 

Students enrolled part-time in day classes during the fall or spring 
semesters will be charged $470 per three semester hour course. This rate 
is applicable to those students taking 1 1 semester hours or less. Students taking 
12 to 16 hours are classified full-time. 

Evening School Fees 

Fees for 1984-85 will be approximately 10 per cent higher than that listed 

Students who are enrolled as evening school students will be charged 
$2 50 per three semester hour course. To qualify for this special tuition rate, 
a student must take all courses in the evening. The rate for four-hour lab 
courses is $33 5 plus a $20 laboratory fee. 

Summer School Fees 

Fees for 1984-85 will be approximately 10 per cent higher than those 
listed below. 

All students enrolled in Summer School will be assessed $270 per three 
semester hour course. The rate for four-hour lab courses is $270. 

Students desiring residence hall and food service accommodations are 
charged $410 per five-week session for a double room, $480 per five-week 
session for a single room. These fees are for both room and board. 


Withdrawal, Drop/Add 

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 the drop/add week. After the 
drop/add period, the professor must approve the change in schedule. The 
professor may issue one of the following grades: withdraw passing (W), 
withdraw failing (WF), 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 
class day. No refund will be processed until classes have ceased for the 
semester in progress. 

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 
responsibility stated above concerning the official withdrawal policy The 
student may receive the grade of withdrawal passing, withdrawal failing, or 
failure due to excessive absences. This policy has direct implications for 
students receiving benefits from the Veterans Administration and other federal 
agencies as these agencies must be notified when a student misses six 
consecutive classes. This will result in an automatic decrease in payments to 
the student. Reinstatement in a course is at the discretion of the instructor. 

If a student must withdraw from the University, an official withdrawal 
form must be obtained from the Registrar. The Dean of the Faculty 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 
commitment to a fair and equitable refund of tuition and other charges 
assessed. While the University advances this policy it should not be interpreted 
as a policy of convenience for students to take lightly their responsibility and 
their commitment to the University The University has demonstrated a 
commitment by admitting and providing the necessary programs for all 
students and feels the student must also demonstrate a commitment in their 
academic 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 $100 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 reminded 


that all changes in their academic program must be cleared through the 
Registrar; and 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 40 days. 

In the following schedules, "class day" means any day during which the 
University conducts classes. 

Refund Schedule for 
Withdrawals from the University 

Before 1st class day 100% 

By the end of the 7th class day 75% 

By the end of the 14th class day 50%

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

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




Student Life 

Leadership Development 

Oglethorpe University seeks to prepare its students for roles of leader- 
ship in society. At Oglethorpe, specific educational experiences are planned 
to help the student acquire the skills of leadership. 

Education for leadership must be based on the essential academic 
competencies — reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Though widely neg- 
lected today at all levels of education, these are the prerequisites for effec- 
tive leadership. They are the marks of an educated person. Oglethorpe insists 
that its students achieve advanced proficiency in these skills, in addition, stu- 
dents 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 improve- 
ment of our community and our society. 

Orientation - Freshman Seminar 

Oglethorpe University wishes to provide each student with the oppor- 
tunity to make a successful adjustment to college life. Because we take pride 
in our tradition of close personal relationships, we have organized an orien- 
tation program to provide these relationships, as well as much needed infor- 
mation about the University 

The program has been developed to assist students through small group 
experiences. Information is disseminated which acquaints the student with 
the academic program and the extracurricular 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 experience, a Freshman Seminar is held 
during the first semester. Topics discussed during these sessions will meet 
the needs of the developing student and will help the student assimilate his 
college experiences. Freshman students, having completed the orientation 
program and the series of seminars, will be better prepared to understand 
and appreciate their educational development. 

Student Reponsibility 

All students of the University are expected to maintain the highest stan- 
dards of moral conduct and to respect the privacy and property of others. 
Students are expected to display at all times public and private behavior which 
is not disruptive of campus life or the community. A student is considered 
to be a representative of the university community on and off campus. 

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


student Government 

The Oglethorpe University Student Association, consisting of the 
President, Vice-President, Secretary, TYeasurer, 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 
notices posted. All students are urged to attend. Additional information may 
be obtained from O.S.A., Box 4 58, 3000 Woodrow Way Atlanta, Georgia 30319. 

Student Activities 

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 to the extent that 
such involvement does not deter them from high academic achievement. 
Students are especially encouraged to join professional organizations 
associated with their interests and goals. The value of a students participation 
is a major consideration in determining scholarships.

Fraternities and Sororities 

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 sororities are Chi Omega and Delta Zeta. 

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 established by the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, 
and the Dean of Students. 

Athletic Policy 

At Oglethorpe University the students who participate in intercollegiate 
competition are considered to be students first and athletes second. All 
students engaged in athletics must satisfy the same academic requirements 
as other students. There are no scholarships which are based solely or primarily 
on the athletic ability of the student. However, Oglethorpe provides a program 
of Leadership Scholarships and Merit Awards which are described in another 
section of this bulletin. Many students who are interested in sports and are 
superior academically can qualify for these forms of assistance. 


Oglethorpe University offers intercollegiate competition in basketball, 
cross country, soccer, tennis and track for men; and in cross country, tennis, 
track and volleyball for women. 

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


Cooperative Education/Internships 

Beginning in their sophomore year, students can further refine their 
career plans through Cooperative Education and Internship work experiences. 
These programs provide practical experience which complements the 
academic program. Besides giving students an opportunity to gain marketable 
work experience, they are also given the opportunity to test the reality of their 
career decisions. 

Cooperative Education and internship experiences are available to 
students in all academic programs. Opportunities can be arranged in business, 
government, education, social services, and health care institutions. 


The Counseling Service at Oglethorpe provides confidential, professional 
assistance to students experiencing psychological or social problems. Though 
academic advising is the responsibility of individually assigned faculty mentors, 
students encountering unusual 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 
coniunction with the counseling process when circumstances indicate that 
these would be helpful. 

Career Development 

ideally, the career decision-making process should begin as soon as a 
student enters college. Students are provided opportunities to talk with 
counselors and to explore various careers, utilizing our Career Library. A four- 
year program of career development is available to interested students. The 
program provides guidance with career decisions and specific job preparation. 
Vocational interest inventories are also available and are frequently used as 
a part of a highly individualized process of career counseling. The objective 
is to have students become their own experts in formulating career plans that 
will be compatible with their academic pursuits. This kind of planning insures 
students maximum future employability. 

Placement Center 

The Placement Center provides career and placement counseling, plus 
on-going programs in personal job search strategies, communication skills, 
resume preparation, and interviewing skills and techniques. Local and national 
businesses, industry, and public service agencies recruit through the Center 
each year. A Career Newsletter announcing job openings, plus current and 
relevant career information, is published semimonthly. An extensive Career 
Library is maintained, containing current resource material and company in- 
formation from firms and agencies — as well as graduate school information. 
The Placement Center also provides services to students needing part-time 
employment through its Student Employment Center. 


opportunities in Atlanta 

The Oglethorpe campus is located eight miles north of downtown 
Atlanta. This proximity to the Souths 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 productions 
of contemporary and classical plays. These are only illustrative of the wide 
range of cultural opportunities offered by Atlanta. Student discounts are 
available for many performances. 



The residence halls are available to all full-time day students. There are 
five men's residence halls and two women's halls. Each complex has a Resident 
Director and a staff of student Resident Assistants. 

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

Health Service 

All resident students subscribe to a Basic Student Accident and Sickness 
Insurance Plan provided by the University. Full-time students living off campus 
may purchase this insurance. In addition, any student covered under the Basic 
Policy may purchase an optional Major Medical Plan for an additional charge. 

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. 

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

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

' O Boole 

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

Academic Regulations 
and Policies 


New students select courses in consultation with a faculty adviser to 
whom they are assigned on their initial registration day. Schedule planning 
and course selection for following semesters are accomplished during pre- 
registration week. Students should make appointments to consult with their 
academic advisers during preregistration. Summer schedules are planned 
during preregistration week in the spring semester. 

The day prior to the first day of classes is the official registration day 
Every student must go through the various stations of the registration process 
on that day Those who have preregistered will be able to pick up a copy of 
their course schedule at the first station of registration and thereby bypass 
the station at which proposed course schedules are computer processed by 
Registrar's Office personnel. All other stations must be completed by pre- 
registered students. 

Academic Advising 

Each student consults with a member of the faculty in preparing course 
schedules, discussing post-graduation plans, and inquiring about any other 
academic matter. A student's adviser or "mentor" is assigned at the time of 
the student's initial enrollment. The faculty adviser is each student's primary 
point of contact with the University. 

To change advisers a student must complete the following procedural 

1) Ask the proposed "new" faculty adviser for permission to be added 
to the faculty member's advisee list. 

2) Ask the current adviser to send your student file to the faculty 
member who has agreed to be your new adviser. 

3) Ascertain that the new adviser has received your file and has sent 
an Adviser Change notice to the Registrar's Office. 

This is the only method for changing one's academic adviser. 


Regular attendance at class sessions, laboratories, examinations, and 
official University convocations is an obligation which all students are expected 
to fulfill. 

Faculty members set specific attendance policies in their course syllabi. 


Faculty members report letter grades for students at the end of each 
semester. These grades become part of the students official record. Once 
entered, a grade may not be changed except by means of an officially executed 
Change of Grade form. 

A student's cumulative grade-point average (GPA) is calculated by di- 
viding the number of semester hours of work the student has attempted into 
the total number of quality points earned. 


The letter grades used at 0{ 


are defined as 


























Below 60 


Failure: Excessive Absences* 





Withdrew Failing* 






Audit (no credit) 

Notes: * — Grade has same impact as an "F" on the grade-point average 

** —Grade has no impact on the GPA; no credit awarded. 
* * * — Grade has same impact as an "F" on the GPA; an "I" changes 
to an "F" unless the remaining required work is completed 
satisfactorily and the grade is changed by the instructor 
before the end of the following semester. 
**** —Grade has no impact on the GPA; credit is awarded. 
Only work completed at Oglethorpe is reflected in the Oglethorpe GPA.

— sophomore; 61 to 90 hours — junior; 91 hours and above — senior. 

Normal Academic Load 

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 12 to 16 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. 

Withdrawal from the University 

Students who wish to withdraw from the University during a semester 
are asked to complete the appropriate form, which is available at the Registrar's 
Office. The grade "W" or "WF" will be assigned for courses in progress, 
depending upon the student's academic progress in those courses. 

Withdrawal from a Course 

The grade "W" or "WF" is assigned to a student who withdraws from 
a course (turns in a properly executed withdrawal form at the Registrars Office) 
from the conclusion of drop and add period through midterm or the middle 
of a mini or summer session. After that time the grade "W" is assigned only 
in the case of a prolonged illness (physician's letter must be submitted directly 
to the Registrar's Office) or withdrawal from the University. 

In the case of an emergency departure from the campus as a result of 
which withdrawal forms have not been executed, the Registrar's Office verifies 
that the student has left campus as a result of an emergency and notifies 
instructors. Instructors may elect to assign a "W" in such a case even if it occurs 
after midterm or midsession. 

A student who withdraws from the University after midterm or the middle 
of a mini or summer session is assigned the grade "W" or "WF" in courses 
depending upon the student's academic progress in those courses. 


Repetition of Courses 

Courses taken originally during the fall 1983 semester and thereafter 
may be repeated only if an unsatisfactory grade (D, F, FA, or WF) was received 
in the course. Courses taken prior to the fall 1983 semester may be repeated 
regardless of the grade received originally. 

For a repeated course, the higher of the two grades received in the course 
is calculated into the student's cumulative grade-point average. However, be- 
ginning in the fall 1984 semester, all grades received in a given course are 
calculated into the student's cumulative grade-point average. 

Policy on Academic Fraud 


Cheating on Examinations 

1) The unauthorized use of notes, texts, or other such materials during 
an examination, 

2) Copying another person's work or participation in such an effort, 

3) An attempt or participation in an attempt to fulfill the requirements 
of a course with work other than one's original work for that course. 
Students have the responsibility of avoiding participation in cheating 
incidents by doing their own work, taking precautions against others 
copying their work, and in general neither giving nor receiving aid. 


Misrepresenting someone else's words, ideas, data, or original research as 
one's own. In general failing to footnote or otherwise acknowledge the 
source of such work. One has the responsibility of avoiding plagiarism by 
taking adequate notes on reference materials used in the preparation of 
reports, papers, and other coursework. The instructor decides if there is 
substantial and convincing evidence that an incident of willful and flagrant 
plagiarism has occurred. 

Penalties for Academic Fraud 

If the instructor believes that there is substantial and convincing evidence 
that an incident of academic fraud has occurred, the student is assigned 
an "F" in the relevant course and the instructor delivers written notification 
to the Dean of the Faculty of such action. The Dean of the Faculty informs 
the student by letter that the student is suspended from the University for 
the next full semester. Students may not register for summer session courses 
at Oglethorpe while suspended. Coursework taken at another college during 
the period of suspension is not acceptable as transfer credit at Oglethorpe. 
A student suspended for academic fraud may not take part in any University 
activities nor frequent the campus. 

Upon notification of suspension the student may request a review of the 
evidence of academic fraud by an ad hoc Evidence Review Committee 
composed of: 

1) Dean of the Faculty. 

2) The student's academic adviser. 

3) T\vo faculty members appointed by the Dean of the Faculty. 


4) Three students selected by the president of the Olgethorpe Student 
Association, (in the absence of the president, the vice-president shall 
select the students.) 

The Evidence Review Comnnittee's task is to decide whether the evidence 

of academic fraud is convincing enough to constitute proof beyond a 

reasonable doubt of a violation. 

The second academic fraud offense will result in the student's expulsion. 

Again, the student may ask. an ad hoc Evidence Review Committee to decide 

whether the evidence presented constitutes proof beyond a reasonable 

doubt of a violation. 

Access to Students Records 

To comply with the Family Educational and Privacy Act of 1974, com- 
monly called the Buckley Amendment, Oglethorpe University informs 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 withhold or give consent for the release of identifying data. 
Additional information may be obtained from The "O" Book and from the Dean 
of the Faculty. 

Semester System 

Oglethorpe University operates under the semester system during the 
academic year. TWo summer sessions and an evening session constitute the 
summer schedule. 


Division of Continuing Education 

The University's Division of Continuing Education offers a variety of edu- 
cational opportunities to adults in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Included 
are credit courses in the liberal arts and business, non-credit courses, and 
educational experiences designed to meet the specific needs of employers 
of organizations and members of vocational groups. 

EveningWeekend Degree Program 

An evening-weekend credit program serves two groups: those wishing 
to take a limited number of courses for special purposes and those who desire 
to earn baccalaureate degrees. Degree programs are offered in Accounting, 
Business Administration, Economics, and General Studies. Classes meet two 
nights a week (Monday and Wednesday, Tuesday and Thursday) and on 
Saturday mornings. The academic year is divided into three full terms — fall, 
spring and summer — and an abbreviated term in May To qualify for the special 
tuition rates offered evening-weekend students a student must take all courses 
in the evening or on Saturdays. 

Non-Credit Course Program 

The Division of Continuing Education serves as the University's 
community service arm as it provides non-credit courses for adults. Carefully 
planned courses meet varying educational needs of adults living in the 
University's area. Classes meet on weekday evenings in fall, winter and spring 

Human Resource Development 

Ti'aining needs of business, industry, government, and vocational groups 
in the north Atlanta area are met through individually designed seminars, 
workshops, and conferences. Emphasis is placed on training for managers, 
with a Certificate in Management awarded to individuals who complete the 
prescribed course of study. 

Additional information is available from Dean of Continuing Education 
at (404) 233-6662. 


Oglethorpe's curriculum is arranged in six general divisions: Humanities: 
Social Studies; Science: Education and Behavioral Sciences; Economics and 
Business Administration; and Graduate Studies.

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 
during each term. 

A minimum of 120 hours (or their equivalent for transfer students) is 
necessary for graduation. Some programs may require additional credit. A 
core program, as described below, is required of all four-year students. 


Core Program 

At Oglethorpe University, each student is required to complete a cohesive 
program of courses. It is the opinion of the faculty that these courses are 
essential to a well-rounded undergraduate course of study. Some institutions 
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 members of the 

The following is the core program, listed in the approximate suggested 
sequence for completion.

Courses of Study 

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; sopho- 
more, 2 etc.) The second and the third digits designate the discipline. Each 
level of offerings assumes the earlier completion of necessary prerequisites. 
The number of hours refers to the semester hours credit per term allowed 
for the course. The designation "3 plus 3 " or "4 plus 4" indicates that the 
course carries six or eight semester hours of credit, respectively, for two 
semesters of work. 

Major Programs 

Upon entering Oglethorpe University each student is assigned a faculty 
adviser who assists with the preparation of the student's 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 Dean of 
the Faculty for approval. Each student must declare a major before completing 
60 semester hours. 

In addition to the required core program, most of the majors include 
three levels of courses: those prescribed for the major, directed electives rec- 
ommended 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 division. Major programs are offered in the following 

Accounting History 

American Studies Individually Planned 

Biology Major

Dual Degree Program in Art 

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 60 


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 three credit hours in Art 
Appreciation and at least six 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. 

Dual Degree Program in Engineering 

Oglethorpe is associated with the Georgia Institute of Technology and 
Auburn University in combined programs of liberal arts and engineering. 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 arts 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 schools are slightly different, the student is well advised to 
consult early and frequently with the members of the engineering advisory 

Individually Planned Majors 

An individually planned major must include the following: completion 
of core requirements; completion of 120 semester hours, completion of a 
coherent sequence of courses including at least 18 semester hours in one 
discipline and 12 semester hours in another discipline (in the first category 
no more than two courses may be core requirements, and in the second 
category only one may be a core requirement); and completion of at least 
36 semester hours in courses designated as advanced courses. 

Among the programs comprehended by this major are pre-law, pre- 
medicine, pre-seminary, pre-professional health studies. The degree awarded 
is the Bachelor of Arts. 


Pre-Medical/Pre-Professional Health Studies 

Programs can be designed in the individually planned major that will 
provide a student with appropriate background for admission to professional 
schools of medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy veterinary medicine, 
nursing, physical therapy and other allied health fields. Specific course require- 
ments for admission to the professional schools vary both with the individual 
school and with the particular program, and students should plan their 
Oglethorpe courses with the aim of fulfilling the specific admission require- 
ments of the program they seek to enter. Summaries of the admission 
requirements are given in various publications available from the faculty in 
Oglethorpe's Science Division. Pre-medical students, for example, should con- 
sult the annual packet of the Medical College Admission Test published by 
the Association of American Medical Colleges. The Oglethorpe science faculty 
members are prepared to assist the student in contacting professional schools. 
Students should endeavor to do this early in their course work at Oglethorpe 
and, in no case, later than their second semester of studies. This will enable 
the student and the faculty adviser to design the proper sequence of courses 
and to establish an appropriate time frame for completion of requirements. 

All schools of professional health science recognize the importance of 
a broad educational background. A coordinated program which includes 
extensive study in the natural sciences and mathematics, development of com- 
munication skills, and serious exploration of the social sciences and humanities 
is most desirable. First year courses should generally include General Biology 
I and II, General Chemistry I and II, English Composition I and II, and 
appropriate mathematics courses; courses in subsequent years are chosen 
to fulfill the student's specific needs. 

The professional option is available to highly qualified students seeking 
admission to appropriately accredited colleges of medicine, dentistry and vet- 
erinary medicine. This option allows students to enter their respective 
professional schools at the end of their junior year. Credit is awarded at 
Oglethorpe for the academic credit earned during the first year of professional 
school. In allied health fields, successful completion of work in an accredited 
program and a minimum of 60 semester hours credit earned at Oglethorpe 
must be presented for a student to be considered for the degree Bachelor 
of Arts in an individually planned major, with a concentration in pre- 
professional health studies. 

Pre-Legal Program 

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 prelaw 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 rea- 
soning in quantitative terms. The student is encouraged to become more 
familiar with political, economic, and social institutions as they have developed 
historially and as they function in contemporary society. Students are referred 
to the Prelaw Handbook, which is available from the prelaw advisers, for a more 
complete discussion of the desirable aspects of a prelaw curriculum. 



Pre-seminary students should plan a curriculum with emphasis on phi- 
losophy, religion, English, and foreign languages courses. A faculty adviser 
will aid in the selection of a particular field of study. For further guidance, 
the chairman of the humanities division makes available a list of courses rec- 
ommended by the American Association of Theological Schools, luniors and 
seniors are encouraged to take an internship related to their course work. 

Interdisciplinary Majors 

Interdisciplinary majors are offered in American Studies, Business Ad- 
ministration and Behavioral Science, and International Studies. Students who 
choose one of these majors should notify the Registrar so that an appropriate 
adviser may be assigned. 


American Studies 

This major allows students to take courses in a number of disciplines. 
The required courses in American literature and American history may not 
be used to satisfy core requirements. The course in Introduction to American 
Studies should be taken in the sophomore year. The seminar courses are to

Education and 
Behavioral Sciences 


Education provides courses leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Elementary 
and Secondary Education, with elementary concentrations in Early Childhood 
(K-4) and Middle Grades Education (4-8) and with Secondary Education (7-12) 
concentrations in the subject areas of English, mathematics, social science, 
and science (biology, physics or chemistry). The teacher preparation curricula 
are fully approved by the Georgia State Department of Education; successful 
program completion is necessary to obtain a teaching certificate. Students 
desiring certification in other states should secure information from those 

Admission to and Retention 
in Teacher Education Program 

Completion of the Teacher Education Program requires the following 

1. Admission to the Teacher Education Program. Apply during the 
course Introduction to Education or, for transfer students, after having 
attended Oglethorpe for one semester. 

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

3. Completion of Student Teaching. Apply for fall placement by April 
15 or for spring placement by October 15. 

4. Completion of the entire approved program as found on the follow- 
ing pages. Professional courses should be completed according to 
the sequence listed in the approved program; detailed programs may 
be obtained from the education advisers. 

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 for 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; demonstration of pro- 
ficiency in oral and written English; a cumulative average of at least 2.2 with 
no grade less than "C" in any professional education course or in any teaching 
field course required in the approved program; 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 ad- 
ministered Teacher Certification 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 
Tfeacher Education. 


Approved programs leading to teacher certification in Georgia are de- 
scribed in the following sections. All approved programs include the require- 
ments for meeting core requirements at Oglethorpe. They may require more 
general education than is required to meet the core requirements 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. 

Early Childhood and 
Middle Grades Education 

Persons desiring to teach in the elementary grades must select either 
Early Childhood (K-4) or Middle grades (4-8) as a concentration. General Edu- 
cation requirements must include Biology I and !I, Principles of Science I. 
College Mathematics, and American History I and II; otherwise regular core 
requirements should be met. 

Students should select Introduction to Education during either the spring 
semester of the freshman year or the fall semester of the sophomore year. 
Program requirements for education majors are available from any education 
faculty member and must be followed closely to avoid scheduling problems 
in the completion of the degree requirements. Programs require work in pro- 
fessional education to culminate in student teaching and in the content of 
the teaching field. Teaching field courses for the early childhood major include 
all content areas; teaching field courses for the middle grades include five 
basic content areas and require two concentrations of approximately 12 
semester hours each. 

Secondary Education 

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/Adolescent Psychology 
(sophomore); Secondary Curriculum, Educational Psychology Introduction to 
Special Education (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 semester of the senior year.

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 think- 
ing, 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 either the 
Graduate Record Examination (aptitude portion), the National Teacher Exam- 
ination (commons and teaching field), or the Miller Analogies Test; two 
recommendations (form provided) from previous colleges attended and/or 
employers; and, when deemed necessary, take validating examinations or pre- 
paratory work. Candidates not previously prepared for teaching must meet 
requirements for first professional certification before completing requirements 
for the master's degree. 


Application forms may be obtained from the Office of Admissions of 
the (Jniversity. Completed forms should be returned to the Office of Admis- 
sions as soon as possible but at least 20 days prior to the term in which the 
applicant expects to enroll. These forms should be accompanied by a $20 
application fee (non-refundable). All material (completed forms, fee transcripts, 
and test scores) should be sent directly to the Office of Admissions, Oglethorpe 
University, Atlanta, Georgia 30319. To insure proper consideration, all 
documents must be on hand at least 20 days prior to the proposed time of 
enrollment. All documents become the property of the University and will 
not be returned. 

If an applicant does not choose to enter the Graduate Division in the 
term indicated on the application, the applicant should notify the Office of 
Admissions of the change and indicate a new date of entrance, if applicable. 
Otherwise, the original admissions will be canceled, the file discontinued, and 
a new application may 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. 


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, NTE, or MAT, and the rec- 
ommendation of the chairman of the Graduate Division, and who has 
completed all prerequisites required for admission may be admitted as a 
regular graduate student. 

Provisional. A person failing to meet one or more of the standards 
required for admission as a regular student or a qualified senior may be 
admitted under conditions specified at the time of admission by the Chairman 
of the Graduate Council and approved by the Graduate Council. The 


provisionally admitted student may apply to the Chairman of the Graduate 
Division for reclassification when the conditions have been met. Graduate 
courses completed by the provisional student may be counted toward a degree 
after the student has been reclassified as a regular student. 

A senior within six semester hours of completing requirements for the 
bachelor's degree may be permitted to enroll in courses for graduate credit 
provided that: (1) the student has the permission of the head of the education 
department and the Chairman of the Graduate Division; (2) the student is 
otherwise qualified for admission to graduate study except for the degree; 
and (3) the total load in a semester would not exceed 1 5 semester hours. Under 
no circumstances may a course be used for both graduate and undergraduate 

Transient. A student in good standing in another recognized graduate 
school who wishes to enroll in the Graduate Division of Oglethorpe University 
and who plans to return thereafter to the former institution may be admitted 
as a transient graduate student. In lieu of full transcripts and regular applica- 
tions the student must submit a transient student application form completed 
by the graduate dean listing specific courses to be taken for credit. Any student 
admitted on this basis should understand that registration terminates upon 
the completion of the work authorized by the degree-granting institution. If 
later electing to seek a degree from Oglethorpe University the student must 
make formal application for admission and may petition to have credit earned 
as a transient student applied toward the degree at the 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 
Graduate Council. 


Registration dates for each term are listed on page 3 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 course. 

Courses and Loads 

Courses numbered 6000 are open only to graduate students. Some Arts 
and Sciences courses with 4000 numbers carry either undergraduate or grad- 
uate 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 1 5 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 
30 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 adviser 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 1 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 cir- 
cumstances, is unable to complete the required work in the pre- 
scribed time interval, provided the student was doing satisfactory 
work. Such a grade must be removed by the completion of the 
work within one year or the 1 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. 

Admission to Candidacy 

Application for admission to candidacy for the Master of Arts degree 
must be filed with the Chairman of the Graduate Division after the student 
has 12 semester hours of graduate study at Oglethorpe University. Admis- 
sion 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 candidacy 
would be given in writing to the student and to the student's adviser. The 
student seeking the Master of Arts degree must furnish certification by the 
Chairman of the Education Department of eligibility for first professional cer- 
tification or include appropriate make-up work in the program.

that the student will complete the program with reasonable continuity. 

Transfer, Extension, Correspondence Credit. A maximum of six 
semester hours of graduate credit may be transferred from another accredited 
institution subject to the following conditions: (1) transfer credit will not be 
considered prior to admission to candidacy; (2) work already applied toward 
another degree cannot be accepted; (3) work must have been completed within 
the six-year period allowed for the completion of degree requirements; (4) work 
must have been applicable toward a graduate degree at the institution where
