WELCOME 
FROM THE 
PRESIDENT 

Thank you for your interest in Oglethorpe's 
University College program. I am extremely proud 
of the quality education we provide to our students. 
Oglethorpe's University College will transform, 
empower and prepare you to meet life's many 
challenges. 



University College offers two bachelor degrees in six disciplines with 
an academically challenging ciuriculum designed to help you achieve your 
educational goals. Our dedicated students learn in intimate classroom settings 
from a faculty second to none on the campus of the only coeducational liberal 
arts college in Atlanta. 

I recendy had the opportunity to join a University College class on maikedng. 
When the class ended, I asked why the students had chosen to complete their 
college education at Oglethorpe and why the professor had selected our 
university 12 years ago as his teaching home. Almost an hour later, at well 
past 1 1:00 p.m., I strolled through the campus reveling in the enthusiasm and 
commitment to Oglethorpe I had heard expressed. I ended my evening with 
an even higher level of energy and excitement than I had begun the day, some 
16 hours earlier. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and talk with each 
University College student, because I know that you offer a unique perspective 
on the education we provide. 

Again and again, I find myself going back to the Oglethorpe positioning 
statement: Make a life. Make a living. Make a difference. It promises enrichment. 
It promises a practical outcome. It promises meaning. And for me, as the president of 
an institution with such intentional purpose, it promises the greatest challenge 
of my career. Whether you are coming to Oglethorpe to begin your college 
career, gain a second degree or complete your degree, I applaud and respect 
your commitment and wish you well in your pursuit of knowledge. 

Together, we will accomplish gieat things. 

Best regards.

Mission 




Mission of University College 



University College offers an undergraduate curriculum for the adult student that 
builds on the foundation of a liberal arts education and aims to enhance student's 
skills in critical thinking, communication and basic academic competencies. The 
underlying vision of the college reflects the three-fold philosophical and institutional 
mission of Oglethorpe University and its commitment to making a life, making a 
living and making a difference. The curriculum in University College reflects the 
general mission and goals of Oglethorpe University, keeping in mind the particular 
needs of adult learners. 



Goals 



Educators at Oglethorpe expect their graduates to display abilities, skills, intellectual 
attitudes and sensitivities that are related to the University's purpose. The curriculum 
and extracurricular life are designed to develop the following: 

1. The ability to read critically - to evaluate arguments and the evidence and to 
draw appropriate conclusions. 

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

3. Skill in reasoning logically and thinking analytically and objectively about 
important matters. 

4. An understanding of the most thoughtful reflections on right and wrong 
and an allegiance to principles of right conduct, as reflected by Oglethorpe's 
Honor Code. 

5. The willingness and ability to assume the responsibilities of leadership in public 
and private life, including skill in organizing the efforts of other persons on 
behalf of worthy causes. 

6. An inclination to continue one's learning after graduation from college and 
skill in the use of books, information technology and other intellectual tools 
for that purpose. 

7. A considered commitment to a set of career and life goals. 

8. An awareness of the increasingly international character of contemporary life 
and skill in interacting with persons of diverse cultural backgrounds.

accomplishments of our graduates. 

Our vision is to be known as the leading liberal arts institution in the Southeast. 

We will achieve this vision by building on our tradition of academic excellence 



10 



both inside and outside of the classroom, energizing the campus experience and 
connecting and contributing to the community.

History 




Old Oglethorpe University began in the early 1800s with a movement by Georgia 
Presbyterians to establish in their state an institution for the training of ministers. For 
generations, southern Presbyterian families had sent their sons to Princeton College 
in New Jersey, and the long distance traveled by stage or horseback suggested the 
building of a similar institution in the South. 

Oglethorpe University was chartered by the state of Georgia in 1835, shordy after 
the centennial observance of the state. The college was named after James Edward 
Oglethorpe, the founder of Georgia. Oglethorpe University, which commenced actual 
operations in 1838, was thus one of the earliest denominational institutions in the 
South located below the Virginia line. The antebellum college, which began with four 
faculty members and about 25 students, was located at Midway, a small community 
near Milledgeville, then the capital of Georgia. 

Throughout its antebellum existence the Oglethorpe curriculum consisted pri- 
marily of courses in Greek, Ladn, classical literature, theology, and a surprising variety 
of natural sciences. Oglethorpe's president during much of this period was Samuel 
Kennedy Talmage, an eminent minister and educator. Other notable Oglethorpe 
faculty members were Nathaniel M. Crawford, professor of mathematics and a son 
of Georgia statesman William H. Cravs^ord; Joseph LeConte, destined to earn world 
fame for his work in geology and optics; and James Woodrow, an uncle of Woodrow 
Wilson and the first professor in Georgia to hold the Ph.D. degree. Oglethorpe's 
most distinguished alumnus from the antebellum era was the poet, critic, and musi- 
cian Sidney Lanier, who graduated in 1860. Lanier remained as a tutor in 1861 until 
he, with other Oglethorpe cadets, marched away to war. Shortly before his death, 
Lanier remarked to a friend that his greatest intellectual impulse was during his 
college days at Oglethorpe University. 

Old Oglethorpe in effect "died at Gettysburg." During the Civil War its students 
were soldiers, its endowment was lost in Confederate bonds, and its buildings were 
used for barracks and hospitals. The school closed in 1862 and afterward conducted 
classes irregularly at the Midway location. In 1870 the institution was briefly relo- 
cated in Georgia's postbellum capital of Atlanta, at the site of the present City Hall. 
Oglethorpe at this time produced several educational innovations and expanded 
its curriculum to business and law courses and offered the first evening college 
classes in Georgia. The dislocation of the Reconstruction era proved insurmount- 
able, however, and in 1872 Oglethorpe closed its doors for a second time. 

Oglethorpe University was rechartered in 1913, and in 1915 the cornerstone to the 
new campus was laid at its present location on Peachtree Road in north Adanta. Present 
to witness the occasion were members of the classes of 1860 and 1861, thus linking the 
old and the new Oglethorjje University. The driving force behind the University's revival 
was Dr. Thomwell Jacobs, whose grandfather. Professor Ferdinand Jacobs, had served on 
the faculty of Old Oglethorpe. Thomwell Jacobs, who became Oglethorpe's president for 
nearly three decades, intended for the new campus to be a "living memorial" to James 
Oglethorpe. The distinctive Gothic revival architecture of the campus was inspired 
by the honorary alma mater of James Oglethorpe, Corpus Christi College, Oxford. 
The collegiate coat-of-arms, emblazoned with three boar's heads and the inscription 
Nescit Cedere ("He does not know how to give up"), replicated the Oglethorpe family 
standard. For the college athletic teams, Jacobs chose an unusual mascot - a small, 
persistent seabird which, according to legend, had inspired James Oglethorpe while 
on board ship to Georgia in 1732. The Oglethorpe University nickname "Stormy 
Petrels" is unique in intercollegiate athletics. 

Although Presbyterian congregations throughout the South contributed to the 
revival of Oglethorpe University, the school never reestablished a denominational 

14 



affiliation. Since the early 1920s Oglethorpe has been an independent nonsectarian 
co-educational higher educational institution. Its curricular emphasis continued in 
the liberal aits and sciences and expanded into professional programs in business 
administration and education. From the 1920s through the 1940s, the institution 
received major contributions from several individuals. Some of the most prominent 
benefactors were: John Thomas Lupton, Coca-Cola botder from Chattanooga, Ten- 
nessee; Atlanta business community members Harry Hermance and Mrs. Robert J. 
Lowry; and publisher William Randolph Hearst. The latter gave to Oglethoqje a sizable 
donation of land. In the early 1930s the Oglethorpe campus covered approximately 
600 acres, including 30-acre Silver Lake, w^hich was renamed Lake Phoebe after the 
publisher's mother, Phoebe Apperson Hearst. 

During Thornwell Jacobs' tenure he launched several projects which brought 
national and even international repute to Oglethorpe University. In 1923 Jacobs 
discovered the tomb of James and Elizabeth Oglethorpe in Cranham, England. For 
about a decade Oglethorpe University was involved in major college athletics, and 
the Stormy Petrels fielded football teams that defeated both Georgia Tech and the 
University of Georgia. Perhaps Oglethorpe's most famous athlete was Luke Appling, 
enshrined in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame. Dr. Jacobs in the 1930s be- 
came, however, one of the earliest and most articulate critics of misplaced priorities 
in intercollegiate athletics, and Oglethorpe curtailed development in this area. In the 
early 1930s Oglethorpe attracted widespread attention with its campus radio station, 
WJTL, named after benefactor John Thomas Lupton. Oglethorpe's University of the 
Air was a notable experiment, which lasted about five years, that broadcast college 
credit courses on the air waves. Oglethorpe University was one of the first institutions 
to confer honorary doctorates on national figures in order to recognize superior 
civic and scientific achievement. Among Oglethorpe's early honorary alumni were 
Woodrow Wilson, Walter Lippman, Franklin Roosevelt, Bernard Baruch, Amelia 
Earhart, and David Samoff. 

Perhaps the best known of all of Jacobs' innovations was the Oglethorpe Crypt of 
Civilization, which he proposed in the November 1936 issue p{ Scientific American. 
This prototype for the modern time capsule was an effort to provide, for posterity, 
an encyclopedic inventory of life and customs from ancient times through the middle 
of the 20th century. The Crypt, sealed in the foundation of Phoebe Hearst Hall in 
1940, is not to be opened until 81 13 A.D. It has been hailed by the Guiness Book of 
World Records as "the first successful attempt to bury a record for future inhabitants 
or visitors to the planet earth." 

In 1944 Oglethorpe University began a new era under Philip Weltner, a noted 
attorney and educator. With a group of faculty associates. Dr. Weltner initiated an 
exciting approach to undergraduate education called the "Oglethorpe Idea." It 
involved one of the earliest efforts to develop a core curriculum, with the twin aims 
"to make a life and to make a living." The Oglethorpe core, which was applauded by 
the New York Times, aimed at a common learning experience for students with about 
one-half of every student's academic program consisting of courses in "Citizenship" 
and "Human Understanding." After World War II, Oglethorpe University emphasized 
characteristics it had always cultivated, notably close personal relationships, in order to 
be, in Dr. Weltner's words, "a small college superlatively good." From 1965 through 
part of 1972 the institution was called Oglethorpe College. But the historical identity 
of Oglethorpe University was so strong that in 1972 the original chartered name was 
re-established. Oglethorpe continued toward its goals and in the late 1960s began a 
facilities expansion program which created a new part of the campus, including a 
modern student center and residential complex. 

15 



By the 1980s the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching had clas- 
sified Oglethorpe in the category of Liberal Arts I (now referred to as Baccalaureate 
[Liberal Aits] Colleges I). These highly selective undergraduate institutions av^ard more 
than half of their degrees in the arts and sciences. By the 1990s the University was 
listed favorably in the Fiske Guide to Colleges, The Princeton Review Student Access Guide, 
Barron 's 300 Best Buys in College Education, National Review College Guide - America 's 
Top Liberal Arts Schools and many other guides to selective colleges. 

The student body, while primaiily from the South, has become increasingly cos- 
mopolitan; in a typical semester, Oglethoi"pe draws students from about 30 states and 
30 foreign countries. The University has established outreach through its evening- 
weekend degree programs; teacher certification and a graduate progiam in education; 
and the Oglethoi"pe University Museum. Tlie University is also home to the Georgia 
Shakespeare Festival. 

As Oglethorpe University enters the 21st century, it has demonstrated continued 
leadership in the development and revision of its core currictUum, with efforts funded 
by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The historic district of the 100-acre 
campus has been designated in the National Register of Historic Places. Enrollment 
is about 1,300 with plans for controlled growth to about 1,500. Oglethorpe remains 
on the forefront of educational innovation, with a curriculum that features interactive 
learning. The University uses a variety of effective pedagogical techniques: perhaps 
most notable are the peer tutoring program, classroom learning that is actively con- 
nected to contemporary experience through internships and other opportunities 
for experiential education, and a unique program in urban leadership that invites 
students to consider ways in which they can become community leaders for the 
future. Reflecting the contemporary growth of the city of Adanta, Oglethorpe has 
recently developed a distinctive international dimension. Students at the University 
may complement their campus progiams with foreign studies at sister institutions in 
Argentina, France, Germany, Monaco, the Netherlands, Japan, Russia, Mexico, and 
Ecuador. As Oglethoi"pe University continues to grow, academically and materially, 
it is ever mindful of its distinguished heritage and will still remain, in the affectionate 
words of poet and alumnus Sidney Lanier, a "college of the heart."

A Glossary of Oglethorpe Terms and Historical References 

Academic quad — The major academic buildings are arranged around a large 
grassy rectangle. Many informal and formal activities take place on the academic 
quad including Quadfest in the fall, the Stomp the Lawn Concert, and commence- 
ment in the spring. The original gothic buildings on the academic quad are on the 
National Register of Historic Places. Dr. Thornwell Jacobs called the granite halls 
the "Silent Faculty," implying that they could inspire students to learn. 

Battle of Bloody Marsh — The "battle" is a tug-of-war between a student team 
and a faculty/staff team organized by the Programming Board that takes place in 
the fall on the academic quad. The name refers to the 1742 battle in which the forces 
of General Oglethorpe defeated the Spanish troops in south Georgia. 

Boar's Head — Boar's Head is held in the Conant Center on the first Friday in 
December. It begins with a procession of the members of Omicron Delta Kappa 
in a academic regalia carrying a roasted boar's head on a litter. The procession is 
followed by a reading of the Boar's Head story. The rest of the celebration consists 
of a concert featuring the University Singers, the lighting of the holiday tree and a 
reception sponsored by the Oglethorpe Student Association. The armorial crest of 
General James Edward Oglethorpe, which depicts four boars' heads, serves as the 
inspiration for this annual tradition. 

Bomb Shelter — The name for this snack bar and game room in the lower level 
of the student center does not refer to any previous functions as a bomb shelter. It 
was named for a video show, Bomb Shelter Television or BSTV, that was produced 
by a student group for several years in the mid 1980s. 

Bubble — References to the 'Oglethorpe Bubble' remind one of the risk of suc- 
cumbing to the cocoon-like atmosphere that can surround an Oglethorpe student. 
In the warmth and comfort of the Oglethorpe Bubble the realities of life outside 
the campus fence can seem remote. 

Core, The (Core Curriculum) — A distinctive element of an Oglethorpe education 
since the 1940's, the Core, in its current form, provides a four-year common learning 
experience for all students. The Core encourages students to pursue links among the 
various areas of study and to appreciate the value of intellectual inquiry. 

Crypt of Civilization Time Capsule — Situated behind a stainless steel door in 
the lower level of Hearst Hall, the Oglethorpe Crypt was identified by the Guiness 
Book of World Records as "the first successful attempt to bury a record of this culture 
for any future inhabitants or visitors to the planet Earth." Sealed in 1940 by Dr. 
Thornwell Jacobs, the Crypt is not to be opened until 8113 A.D. It contains an 
encyclopedic inventory intended to be a "museum" of representative culture from 
the times of the Egyptians through the mid-twentieth century. The first item to be 
seen upon the opening of the Crypt is the "language integrator," designed to teach 
twentieth century English to the generations of 8113 A.D. 

Crypt Capsule 2010 — Located in the lobby of the Emerson Student Center, the 
time capsule was sealed on Oglethorpe Day 2000 to help heighten awareness of the 
Crypt of Civilization. It is scheduled to be opened on Oglethorpe Day 2010.

Elephant — In November 1941 the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey 
Circus was performing in Atlanta. Eighteen circus elephants were poisoned by 
what was later determined to be arsenic. When nine of the beasts died, an en- 
terprising professor in the Oglethorpe medical school had one hauled to campus 
and deposited behind Lowry Hall (now Weltner library) for use in his comparative 
anatomy class. As the animal began to decay a hole was dug next to the body and 
it was rolled in and buried. 

Fishbowl — The admission conference room off the foyer to the admission office 
in Lupton Hall is commonly referred to as the fishbowl because only a glass wall 
separates it from the foyer. 

Georgia Shakespeare — Georgia Shakespeare has been a fixture on the Ogletho- 
rpe University campus since the 1980s when it has housed in a tent on the infield 
of the university track and at other locations. Since the summer of 1997 Georgia 
Shakespeare has shared occupancy of the university's Conant Performing Arts Cen- 
ter, performing Shakespeare and other plays six months out of the year. 

Great Hall of Hearst — Phoebe Hearst Hall, named for the mother of William 
Randolph Hearst, was built in 1915. The Great Hall is the building lobby that fea- 
tures a large stone fireplace and beautiful carved woodwork. The Great Hall is the 
site of many traditional events at the university. 

Greek Row — This term refers to the cul-de-sac that is home to four fraternity 
and two sorority houses. 

Ho Chi Minh Trail — This is the informal name of the walkway that runs through 
the woods from the upper quad residence area to connect with the sidewalks be- 
tween the library and the student center. Presumbably this designation came about 
in the 1960's or 70's and refers to the trail that was named for the leader of North 
Vietnam during the Vietnam War. 

Jacobs, Thomwell — Dr. Jacobs was the driving force behind the reopening of 
Oglethorpe University on its present site in 1916. He was responsible for the Gothic 
revival architecture of the original buildings and served as university president for 
nearly three decades. The Crypt of Civilization was his idea and project. The sayings 
inscribed over the portals of Lupton and Hezirst Halls are all from Dr. Jacobs. 

Lanier, Sidney — The most distinguished alumnus of Old Oglethorpe was Sid- 
ney Lanier, class of 1860, destined to achieve fame as a poet, critic, and musician. 
Bom in Macon, Georgia, he entered Oglethorpe at age fifteen. His favorite college 
activity was the Thalians, then a literary and debating society. After graduation 
Lanier served in the Confederate army. His most famous poems were about nature 
including, "Song of the Chattahoochee." Shortly before his death at age thirty- 
nine, Lanier remarked that his greatest intellectual influence was his college days 
at Oglethorpe University. 

Lupton Hall Bell Tower — Built as a freestanding structure in 1920, the granite 
tower is trimmed in limestone. The tower is a monument to Margaret Lupton. Her 
son and Oglethorpe benefactor John T. Lupton of Chattanooga, Tennessee, at one 
time owned the exclusive franchise to the Coca-Cola Bottling Company. The tower 

18 



still has its original clock and bell chimes. The carillon atop the building was added 
in the early 1970s. In the 1920s two more sections with entrances were added to 
the tower to complete Lupton Hall as a unified academic building. 

Nescit Cedere (pronounced "nes-keer keh-deh-reh") — The university uses as 
its coat-of-arms the crest of the Oglethorpe family. Their symbol was the ferocious 
wild boar. The coat-of-arms features boars' heads on a silver field. Underneath in 
the Latin script is the Oglethorpe family motto adopted by the University. "Nescit 
Cedere," which is freely rendered as "He does not know how to give up." This 
phrase is used as the last line in the Oglethorpe alma mater. 

Night of the Arts — At the Oglethorpe Night of the Arts in October the univer- 
sity's creative students, faculty and staff take the stage to perform. The evening, 
which is sponsored by the literary magazine, features readings of poetry and fiction, 
dance, musical performances and art displays. 

Oglethorpe, General James Edward (1696-1785) — General Oglethorpe, the 
university's namesake, founded the Georgia colony at Savannah in 1733. The 
university's collegiate gothic architecture was inspired by Corpus Christi College 
of Oxford University, Oglethorpe's alma matter. 

Oglethorpe Day — Oglethorpe Day, the second Wednesday in February is a 
festive occasion, which honors the founders of the university and serves to remind 
members of the community of the institution's rich history and unique traditions. 
Convocation kicks off the day's festivities, which typically include such elements as 
music, drama, and food. 

Oglethorpe Student Association — This is the official name of Oglethorpe's 
student government. The OSA is composed of three bodies - an executive council, 
a senate and the programming board. 

Old Oglethorpe University — Originally founded in 1835 by Georgia Presby- 
terians, Old Oglethorpe was one of the oldest denominational institutions south of 
the Virginia line. It was located near the antebellum Georgia capital of Milledgeville. 
The curriculum consisted primarily of classical languages and literature, theology, 
and natural sciences. Oglethorpe's president during much of this time was Samuel 
Talmage. Other distinguished faculty were Joseph LeConte, destined to achieve 
world fame as a geologist, and James Woodrow, the first professor in Georgia to 
hold the Ph.D. Old Oglethorpe, which is said to have died at Gettysburg," perished 
during the Civil War. 

Petrels of Fire — Based on the Cambridge University tradition portrayed in 
the movie "Chariots of Fire," the Petrels of Fire is a footrace that takes place on 
Oglethorpe Day each year. In the race Oglethorpe runners strive to circumnavigate 
the academic quadrangle beginning at the first stroke of 12 on the bell tower caril- 
lon and finish before the final stroke. 

Petey — Petey the Petrel is Oglethorpe's costumed mascot. Petey appears most 
often at basketball games. 



19 



Programming Board — An elected body of the Oglethorpe Student Association 
the board plans concerts, parties and other entertainment for the student body. 

Recruitment — Once known as rush, recruitment is the process by which frater- 
nities and sororities gain new members. It consists of a series of events that are 
designed to provide an opportunity for interested students to meet fraternity and 
sorority members. Through the recruitment process interested students are able 
to learn about the goals, purpose, and benefits of membership in a Greek letter 
organization. At the same time the fraternities and sororities are able to get to 
know those students who they will invite to become members. 

Rikard Lecture — Helping students understand current issues in business is the 
purpose of the Mack A. Rikard lectures at Oglethorpe. The series, named for a 
former trustee and benefactor of the university, brings a business or civic leader to 
campus several times a year. 

Stomp the Lawn — This outdoor concert, produced by the programming board 
in April on the academic quad, features a name band, booths, games of various kinds 
and a picnic. Some bands that have performed at Stomp the Lawn are Drivin' N' 
Cryin,' Jump Little Children, Edwin McCain and Michelle Malone. 

Stormy Petrel (idiosyncratically pronounced "pea-trel") — For sports teams 
Oglethorpe University's mascot is the Stormy Petrel. The storm petrel is a small 
sea bird that flies in the face of storms. According to legend, James Oglethorpe, on 
his first transatlantic voyage to Georgia in 1733, was inspired by the persistence of 
the stormy petrel. The petrel is sometimes thought by students to be extinct despite 
the fact that it is one of the most numerous bird species on earth. The nickname is 
unique in all of American intercollegiate sports. Duane Hanson, renowned former 
Oglethorpe art faculty member, designed the stylized version of the petrel seen on 
Dorough Field House. 

Thalian Society — Originally formed in 1839 at Old Oglethorpe in Milled- 
geville, this organization is the university's oldest student organization. The 
Thalians meet regularly to discuss issues of social, political, or philosophical 
interest to the members. 

Thermometer — Also known as the keyhole, this is the common name for Muade 
Jacobs Driveway that ends in a circular drive between Lupton and Hearst Halls. 
Built in the 1920s the drive used to run out to Peachtree Road. 

Tower — The Tower is Oglethorpe's literary magazine. It is named for the rooms 
on the top floor of the library, now occupied by the museum director, where its staff 
meetings were first held. The magazine includes poems, short essays and stories, 
photographs, and artwork by students, faculty and members of the Oglethorpe 
community at large. 

24 Hour Room — There is a study room located on the entrance level of the 
Weltner Library that is open around the clock for late night and early morning 
studying, writing papers, etc. Snack machines are located in the room and it is the 
only part of the library in which food is permitted. 



20 



Upper Quad —This term refers to the residence hall area that includes Alumni, 
Dempsey, Jacobs, Schmidt and Trustee Halls. They are laid out in a three-sided 
rectangle with an open end. 

Virgin Bourbon Party —The purpose of this October party, sponsored by the 
Oglethorpe Student Association, is to unite students, build community and prove 
to everyone that students can have a good time without consuming alcohol. This 
party is held in the Traer residence hall courtyard. 

WJTL — The campus radio station broadcasts over the Internet utilizing Real 
Audio. The final three call letters stand for John Thomas Lupton, an early bene- 
factor of the university and namesake of Lupton Hall. 

Yamacraw — Because the University serves as a "living memorial" to the founder 
of Georgia, it features many references to the life and legend of General James 
Oglethorpe. The school yearbook is named the Yamacraw after the Native American 
tribe who befriended him in Georgia.

Academic Regulations 
and Policies 




Academic Advising 



Students are assigned a special University College academic advisor and are 
encouraged to meet with an advisor for academic advising as needed. Appointments 
can be scheduled for morning, afternoon and early evening. Assistance w^ith degree 
planning and selection of courses is available to all degree seeking and special status 
students. Students v^th questions or concerns about coursework, faculty, policy, or 
other academic issues, may contact the University College Office for an appointment 
at 404-364-8383. 



Registration 



University College students select courses in consultation with an advisor. Reg- 
istration deadlines are published in the University College schedule of classes each 
semester. Students are responsible for submitting paperwork for all registration 
procedures, including drop/ add forms and withdrawal forms, by the published 
deadlines. Students are encouraged to register early to ensure optimum course 
selection. Students may register for two sessions at a time. The following sessions 
may be registered together: 

Fall Session 1 & 2 (Registration begins July 18, 2005) 
Spring Session 1 & 2 (Registration begins November 14, 2005) 
Summer Session 1 & 2 (Registration begins March 27, 2006) 
For financial aid students must register for two sessions at a time to meet federal 
regulations. Please refer to the financial aid section of the Bulletin or contact the 
Financial Aid Office for assistance at 404-364-8354. 



Final Examinations 



Final examinations are administered the last night of class. Final papers and other 
course requirements are due at that time unless otherwise stated in the course syllabus. 



Class Attendance 



The first day of class is imperative for a good start to a successful session. Students 
who do not attend the first scheduled day of class will be considered "no shows" un- 
less they contact the instructor on or before the first day of the course. If a student 
does not attend the first scheduled day of class, he/she will be responsible for either 
dropping the course or withdrawing from the course. 

Regular attendance at class sessions, laboratories, and examinations is an obli- 
gation which all students are expected to fulfill. Faculty members set attendance 
policies in their course syllabi. 



Grading 



Letter grades are submitted by faculty members at the end of each session. 
These grades become part of the student's official record. Once entered, a grade 
may not be changed except by means of an officially executed Change of Grade 
form. Non-incomplete grades may not be challenged or changed after the end q{ 
the next session in which the grade in question was earned. Grade appeal procedures 
are located on page 38. 

36 



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

The letter grades used at Oglethorpe are defined as follows:

plete the work, for a course on time for reasons of health, family tragedy, or other 
circumstances the instructor deems appropriate, the grade "I" may be assigned. If 
the student completes and submits the work to the instructor within thirty days of 
exams (of the session in question), the instructor will evaluate the work and turn 
in a revised grade. Any "I" not changed by the professor within forty-five days of 
the last day of exams (of the session in question) will automatically be changed to 
a grade of "F". 

**** - Grade has no effect on the GPA; credit is awarded. Only work completed at 
Oglethorpe is reflected in the Oglethorpe GPA.

Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Option 



After 30 semester hours are earned at Oglethorpe a student in good academic 
standing may register to take two courses on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis. 
These courses cannot be taken in the same session and cannot be used to satisfy 
general education requirements or the student's major or minor. The student must 
register for the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory designation by the end of the Drop/ Add 
period after which the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory designation cannot be changed. 
Satisfactory is defined as a "C-" or better. 



Grade Appeals 



The university considers instructors to be professional evaluators of the student's 
academic performance, and expects them to assign grades fairly, without incon- 
sistency or capriciousness. Whenever possible, students are urged to seek informal 
resolution with the instructor. 

If a student believes that a course grade has been assigned in a capricious or 
inconsistent manner, and informal discussion with the instructor does not resolve 
the dispute to the student's satisfaction, the student may appeal the grade through 
the process described below: 

1. The student submits a written appeal to the instructor, within 14 days after 
the posting of the final grade, clearly stating the reasons he or she believes the 
grade was assigned in a capricious or inconsistent manner. 

2. Within 14 days of receiving the written appeal, the instructor either changes 
the grade and so notifies the student, or responds to the student in writing, explaining 
why the extant grade is appropriate. 

3. If the student is not satisfied with the explanation, he or she submits copies 
of the original appeal, the instructors response and one letter of explanation to 
strate his or her reasons that the grade was assigned in a capricious or inconsistent 
manner. This information is submitted to the Director of University College within 
10 days of receiving the instructors written response. 

4. Within 7 working days, the Associate Provost of University College will request 
the instructor submit why the students grade has not been assigned in a capricious 
or inconsistent marmer. 

5. The Associate Provost of University College convenes and serves as chair 
of a ruling committee. The ruling committee will review the letters submitted by 
the student and the instructor. The ruling committee will review the letters submit- 
ted by the student and the instructor. The ruling committee will review the letters 
submitted and may request additional information before rendering a decision. 
The ruling committee is comprised of the Associate Provost of University College, 
Faculty Coordinator, and an instructor in a appropriate discipline. 

6. If the ruling committee rules in favor of the instructor, written notification 
is given both to the instructor and to the student, and no further appeal is possible. 
If the committee rules in favor of the student, the chair advises the instructor to 
reconsider the grade. If the instructor refuses to change the grade, the ruling com- 
mittee may submit a written recommendation for a grade change to the Provost, 
whose decision will be final and based upon a review of the materials that have 
been submitted and the process that has been followed. 

7. The entire process must be concluded by the end of the subsequent session. 



38 



Normal University College Academic Load 



The class schedule is accelerated to facilitate degree completion. The school year 
is divided into six eight-week sessions. Course offerings are planned and scheduled 
with the assumption that most students will take two courses per session. Each 
class meets 2 hours and 15 minutes, two evenings per week. Some Saturday classes 
are also available. 

Students may register for two courses per session which constitutes full time 
status. If a student intends to pursue more than tivo courses per session the approval 
of the Director of University College is required. 



Incompletes 



If a student is unable to complete the work for a course on time for reasons of 
health, family tragedy, or other circumstances the instructor deems appropriate, 
the grade "I" may be assigned. If the student completes and submits the work to the 
instructor within thirty days of the last day of exams (of the session in question), the 
instructor will evaluate the work and turn in a revised grade. Any "I" not changed 
by the professor within forty-five days of the last day of exams (of the session in 
question) will automatically be changed to a grade of "F". The grade of "I" has the 
same effect as a grade of "F" on a student's grade point average. 



Auditing Courses 



Regularly admitted Oglethorpe students may register for courses on an "audit" 
basis. A student who audits a course may attend for enrichment but will not be 
required to take examinations or complete other course requirements. In order to 
audit a course, an admitted student must request an Audit form from the University 
College Office and submit it to the instructor for approval. If the class is not closed, 
the instructor may accept the student as an audit by returning the signed form to 
the University College Office. The designation given for a class taken on an audit 
basis is "AU," and no credits or quality points are earned. 

Students may register to take courses on an audit basis only during normal drop/ 
add periods. The fees for auditing courses are published by the Business Office. 



Dean's List 



Students who earn a semester grade-point average of 3.5 or higher carrying 12 
semester hours or more during the fall, spring and summer semester are placed on 
the Dean's Academic Honors List. 



Graduation Exercises 



Graduation exercises are held once a year at the close of Spring Session 2 in 
May. Diplomas are awarded at the close of May commencement. To be eligible to 
participate in May graduation exercises, a student must have fulfilled all degree 
requirements prior to May commencement. Students completing requirements at 
the end of summer and fall are encouraged to participate in the following spring 
graduation exercises. 

39 



Good Standing, Probation and Academic Dismissal 

To be in good standing students must achieve the cumulative grade-point averages 
specified below in relation to the number of semester hours they have completed. 
Semester Hours Completed Cumulative GPA Required for 

Good Standing 
0-35 1.50 

36-59 1.75 

60 and above 2.00 

Students who fail to achieve good standing are placed on probation. Students who 
do not achieve good standing for two consecutive sessions are subject to dismissal 
from the University for academic reasons. 

New students, freshmen, or transfer students who fail all courses during their 
first two sessions at Oglethorpe are subject to dismissal, unless the student received 
a "W" in all courses or had to withdraw from all courses for medical reasons. 

Students who have been dismissed for academic reasons may be readmitted after 
an absence of one session upon petition to the Provost. Students readmitted by pe- 
tition must achieve good standing by the end of their second session as readmitted 
students or be subject to permanent dismissal. 

Degrees With Latin Academic Honors 

Undergraduate degrees with Latin academic honors are awarded as follows: cum 
laude for a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or higher; magna cum laude for 3.7 
or higher; and summa cum laude for 3.9 or higher. Transfer work is not included in 
the determination for Latin academic honors. 

Double Major Policy 

A student may earn a double major subject to the following conditions: 

1. The student must meet all requirements of both majors. 

2. The student may count no more than four of the courses taken to meet the 
major requirements of one of the fields toward meeting the major require- 
ments of the other field. 

3. The transcript will list both majors. In case both majors result in the same 
degree, that degree will be awarded. 

4. In case the two majors result in different degrees, the student will receive 
only one degree, that being the students' choice of the two degree designa- 
tions. 

Earning a Second Add-On Major Policy 

Students who have been awarded an Oglethorpe baccalaurate degree may return 
to earn a second major within that degree at the University. Upon completion of 
the requirements, the second major will be entered on the student's record and 
transcipt. No diploma will be awarded when the second major is within the degree 
already awarded. The requirements are: 

1. Completion of an additional 30 semester hours of which a minimum of 15 
must be completed at Oglethorpe. 

40 



2. Maintenance of a 2.0 of higher culmulative grade-point average. 

3. Completion of a major other than the major(s) completed at the time the 
first degree was awarded, subject to the first two conditions listed above 
under the Double Major Policy. 

Earning a Second Baccalaurate Degree 

Students who have completed a baccalaurate degree may be awarded a second and 
different baccalaurate degree. Upon completion of the requirements, the student's 
record and transcipt will reflect the conferring of a second degree and a diploma 
will be awarded. 

For students who have earned their first baccalaurate degree at Oglethorpe, the 
same requirements listed above under Earning a Second Add-On Major Apply. 

For students who have earned their first baccalaureate degree at another insti- 
tution, this degree is treated as transfer credit. Up to a maximum of 60 semester hours 
may be accepted at Oglethorpe. The requirements for the second degree are: 

1. Satisfaction of Oglethorpe General Education requirements. 

2. Completion of a minimum of 60 semester hours at Oglethorpe. 

3. Maintenance of a 2.0 or higher cumulative grade-point average. 

4. Completion of a major other than the major(s) completed at the time the 
first degree was awarded. 

All transfer policies stated in the section of this Bulletin entitled Transfer Stu- 
dents and Transfer Policies apply. 

Student Classification 

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

University College Students Seeking Transient Status 

University College students may pursue classes at another accredited institution 
with the appoval of his or her advisor and the Registrar. Failure to obtain this approval 
may result in the denial of credit. Students must be in good academic and financial 
standing with Oglethorpe University. Transient request forms are available in the 
University College office. 

Course Level 

In the Programs of Study section of this Bulletin, disciplines and majors are 
listed alphabetically. Respective courses under each are designated by a prefix that 
identifies the discipline and a four-digit number. The first digit indicates the level of 
the course: 1 = freshman level, 2 = sophomore level, 3 = junior level, and 4 = senior 
level. (A 5 or 6 typically denote a graduate-level course.) Higher-level courses in a 
discipline are typically designed to build upon the content of lower level courses in 
that discipline and other specified prerequisite courses. 

41 



The number of hours refers to the semester hours of college credit per semester, 
which are earned by the successful completion of the course. 

Withdrawal From a Course 

From the conclusion of the Drop/ Add period through mid-session, the grade "W" 
or "WF" is assigned at the instructor's discretion to a student who withdraws from a 
course and turns in a properly executed withdrawal form at the University College 
Office. After the withdrawal period the grade "WF" is assigned. Only in the case of 
prolonged illness (a physician's letter must be submitted directly to the University 
College Office) or withdrawal from the University will a "W" be assigned. 

Withdrawal From the University 

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

Repetition of Courses 

Courses may be repeated only if an unsatisfactory grade ("D," "F," "FA," or 
"WF") was received in the course. When a course is repeated, both grades are 
calculated into the student's grade-point average, but no additional semester hours 
of credit are earned. 

For courses completed prior to 1984, consult the Registrar for applicable 
regulations. 

Access to Student Records/ Release of Information 

To comply with the Family Educational Rights 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 
give consent for the release of identifying data. 

Additional information may be obtained from The O Book and from the Registrar.

Oglethorpe Honor Code 



Persons who come to Oglethorp>e University for work and study join a community 
that is committed to high standards of academic honesty. The Honor Code contains 
the responsibilities we accept by becoming members of the community. 

The students and faculty of Oglethorpe University expect each other to be truth- 
ful in the academic endeavor they share. Faculty assume students complete work 
honestly and act toward them in ways consistent with that assumption. 

Oglethorpe welcomes all admitted students who accept our principles of honest 
behavior. We believe that this Code will enrich our years at the University and allow us 
to begin practicing the honorable, self-governed lives expected of society's leaders. 

Students pledge that they have completed assignments honestly by attaching 
the following statement to each test, paper, overnight work, in-class essay, or other 
work designated by professors: 

I pledge that I have neither given nor received any unauthorized aid on this 
assignment. 
Signed 

It will be the responsibility of the student to provide these pledges by either 
attaching them on a separate sheet or typing them as part of the assigrmient. The 
instructor also should remind the class to sign the pledge. The pledge serves as an 
affirmation of the student's and the instructor's belief in the principles of the honor 
code. Assigned work should not be considered complete without the pledge. 

Since it is assumed that students act according to their pledge, faculty abstain 
from any practices whose purpose is to ascertain that students have been dishon- 
est unless there is a compelling reason to believe that cheating has taken place. 
Instructors should invite their own students to discuss with them actions or policies 
that appear to be at variance with the assumption of honesty. 

All credit courses offered by the University are covered by the Honor Code, and 
all cases of suspected academic dishonesty will be handled in accordance with its 
provisions. It is the responsibility of faculty members to make dear how the Code 
applies to specific courses and to follow its procedures. The Oglethorpe University 
Judicial Review Board serves as the final arbitor in all disputes concerning the 
Honor Code. For complete text of the Honor Code, please see The O Book, the 
student handbook.

Tuition and Costs 




Tuition and fees for University College undergraduate programs are listed 
below for 2005-2006. Tuition reflects cost per course. Tuition and fees are subject 
to change without prior notice to students.

Payment of tuition and fees is due at the time of registration each session. Fail- 
ure 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. 



Employer Reimbursement 

Arrangements can be made for those students whose employers pay all or part of 
their tuition and fees. At the beginning of each semester (at the time of registration), 
students must complete a Deferred Payment Option: Employer Reimbursement form 
for their course fees and pay a 25% down payment, plus a $25 administration fee. 
The balance is due from the employer or the student 30 days after class/session 
ends. Student accounts that are delinquent will be subject to late fees. Registration 
for future sessions will be withheld on accounts with a past due balance. If you would 
like more information, please contact the Business Office at 404-364-8402. 



Drop/ Add 



Students who find it necessary to change their enrollment by dropping or add- 
ing courses must do so by obtaining a Drop/ Add form from the University College 
Office. This form must be completed and returned to the University College Office 
during the Drop/ Add period. 

Students should note that any change of academic schedule must be cleared 
by the University College Office. The date the change is received in the University 
Cbllege Office will be the official date for the change. 



Withdrawal 



After the Drop/ Add period, the professor must approve the change in schedule. 
The professor may issue one of the following grades: Withdrew Passing ( W), Withdrew 

46 



Failing (WF), or may refuse to approve the withdrawal. In order to receive a refund, the 
student must officially drop the class by the date specified in the Class Schedule. 

If a student must withdraw from a class or the University, an official withdrawal form 
must be obtained from the University College Office. The instructor, the University 
College advisor, Registrar and the Director of Financial Aid must sign the withdrawal 
form. The withdrawal form must have all signatures and be returned to the University 
College Office by the withdrawal date stated in the University College Calendar. 
Not attending class does not constitute an official withdrawal. Students who do not 
officially withdraw from a class will be held financially responsible for the class. 



Institutional Refund Policy 

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 under appropriate 
circumstances. 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 to 
students by admitting and providing the necessary programs and expects students 
to reciprocate that commitment. 

If a student must withdraw from a course or from the University, an official v«th- 
drawal form must be obtained from the University College Office. In order to recieve a 
refund students must follow the stated procedures in the University College Course 
Schedule. Students are reminded that all changes in their academic programs must 
be cleared through the University College Office. Arrangements made only with a 
professor will not be recognized as an official change of schedule. 

As noted above students who do not officially withdraw from a class vnW be 
financially responsible for the class. All tuition refund requests will be processed 
within two weeks from the date of withdrawal. 



Important to Note: University College Undergraduates 

Eligibility for financial assistance is calculated on a semester basis; therefore the 
refund policy must also be based on the same enrollment period. University College 
is designed particularly for adult students by having two sessions per semester. 

(A) A student who completely withdraws from all courses in the first session 
of a particular semester, and who does not plan to return within that semester, will 
be subject to the applicable Federal Return of Title IV Funds and/ or Institutional 
Refund policies. 

(B) A student who completely withdraws from all courses in the first session, 
but states in writing to the Office of Financial Aid that she/he will return in the next 
immediate session within the semester, is subject to the Institutional Refund Policy 
only. However, should the student not return in the subsequent session, any refund 
calculations will be reevaluated to consider the federal policies, where applicable. 

(C) Students successfully completing the first session of a given semester who 
do not return in the second, subsequent session will only be subject to institutional 
policies. This also applies to students who do return but then drop one or more 
courses in the second session.

Financial Assistance 




Programs 

Oglethorpe University offers a variety of strategies and resources to keep the 
net cost of an Oglethorpe education affordable. Students interested in financial 
aid should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA,) which 
serves as the approved needs-analysis form by v^hich students may apply for the 
following need-based programs: Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Edu- 
cational Opportunity Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study, Federal 
Stafford Loan. After a student submits the FAFSA to the federal processor, the 
school will receive from the processor an Institutional Student Information Re- 
cord (ISIR). Upon acceptance to the University and receipt of the student's ISIR, 
Oglethorpe's financial aid professionals will prepare a comprehensive financial 
aid package, which may include assistance from any one or more of the following 
sources: 

Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant (GTEG) is available for Georgia residents 
who are full-time degree-seeking students. The program was established by an act 
of the 1971 Georgia General Assembly. The Georgia Student Finance 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 an application and verify their eligibility for 
the grant. A separate application and proof of residency is required. 

HOPE Scholarships of $ 1 ,500 per semester are available to Georgia residents 
who have graduated from an eligible high school in 1996 or later, with at least a 
3.0 grade-point average. Georgia residents who do not qualify under these guide- 
lines but have now attempted 30 or more semester hours (45 quarter hours) with 
a 3.0 grade-point average or higher may also be eligible. The applicant must be 
a Georgia resident for one year prior to attendance at any college or university 
in Georgia. Applicants must be registered as full-time, degree-seeking students 
at a participating Georgia private college or university. Students entering the 
HOPE Scholarship program for the first time after attempting 30 or 60 semester 
hours should be aware that their grade-point average is calculated to include all 
attempted hours taken after high school graduation. Recipients of the Scholarship 
are required to maintain a 3.0 or higher cumulative grade-point average for rein- 
statement. For more information, contact the HOPE Scholarship Program (770) 
414-3085 or 1-800-546-HOPE. 

HOPE Grant A grant of $750 per semester is available to students who are 
enrolled at least half-time (6 hours) and who meet all of the academic and 
residential criteria. 

Federal Pell Grant provides non-repayable grants to undergraduate students. 
Eligibility is determined from the FAFSA. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are non- 
repayable grants awarded to undergraduate students with exceptional financial 
need. Priority is given to Federal Pell Grant recipients. 

Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP) permits a student to earn part of his or 
her 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. 

50 



Federal Perkins Loans are long-term, low-cost educational loans to students 
who have demonstrated need for such assistance. For undergraduate students 
priority is given to Federal Pell Grant recipients. Interest is charged at a five per- 
cent annual rate beginning nine months after the borrower ceases to be at least 
a half-time student (a minimum course load of six semester hours). Information 
regarding repayment terms, deferment and cancellation options are available in 
the Office of Financial Aid. 

Federal Stafford (Subsidized and Unsubsidized) Loans are long-term loans 
available through banks, credit unions, and other lending institutions. Students 
must submit the FAFSA ( which you can access at www.FAFSA.ed.gov) and attend 
at least half-time to receive consideration. A separate loan promissory note is also 
required. Information regarding repayment terms, deferment and cancellation 
options are available in the Office of Financial Aid. 

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

The Harold Hirsch Scholarship for Non-Traditional Students is provided 
by the Harold Hirsch Scholarship Fund of Atlanta. The fund provides annual 
scholarship assistance for degree-seeking students in the evening program. Harold 
Hirsch Scholars must have at least a 3.0 Oglethorpe grade-point average, demon- 
state leadership ability, and have financial need. Applications may be obtained in 
the University College Office. 

Other Scholarships — visit UC office for a current listing of scholarships 
targeted to adult learners. 

Student Emergency Loan Funds 

The Olivia Luck King Student Loan Fund provides short-term loans to enrolled 
students from Georgia. The fund was established in memory of Mrs. King by her 
husband, Mr. C. H. King of Marietta, Georgia. Mrs. King was a member of the class 
of 1942, and Mr. King received his master's degree from Oglethorpe in 1936. 

The David N. and Lutie P. Landers Revolving Loan Fund provides short term 
loans for needy and deserving students. The fund was established by a bequest from 
the estates of Mr. and Mrs. Landers of Atlanta. 

Academic Policies Governing Student Fina^iicial Aid 

Applicants for federal aid, state grants or insitutional need-based programs must be 
making satisfactory progress toward the completion of their degree requirements 
and be in good academic standing with the University in order to receive financial 
aid consideration. Students must meet at least the following requirements: 

1. Satisfactory Completion Ratio - Students must satisfactorily complete at 
least 75 percent of the cumulative course work attempted at Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity. Unsatisfactory grades which count against the student's progress are: 

D - If a "C" or better is required WF - Withdrew Failing 

for the major I - Incomplete 

F - Failure NG - No Grade 

FA - Failure by Absence U - Unsatisfactory 

W - Withdrew AU - Audit 

51 



2. Repeated Courses - Courses that are being repeated will not be considered 
when determining financial aid eligibility unless a grade of at least a "C" 

is required to fulfill the degree requirements. The student must notify the 
Office of Financial Aid if a course is being repeated. 

3. Good Academic Standing and Maximum Time Frames - Students must 
remain in good academic standing by achieving the minimum cumulative 
grade-point average and by completing their degree requirements within the 
maximum time frames listed below:

* Based upon full-time enrollment. The maximum time frame for students enrolled part time 
will be pro-rated. Students who earn over 144 hours will not be eligible for financial aid 
unless approved through the appeal process. 

4. Academic Standing Consistent with Graduation Requirements - Students 
who have completed their second academic year (measured as a period of 
time, not grade level) must maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point 
average in order to be academically consistent with Oglethorpe University's 
graduation requirements. A minimum of 60 semester hours must be earned 
through coursework at Oglethorpe. 

5. Annual Review - The satisfactory progress requirements will be reviewed 
at the completion of each spring semester. If the student is not meeting these 
requirements, written notification will be sent to the student placing him or her 
on "Financial Aid Probation" for the fall semester. The student may continue 
to receive aid during this probationary period but will be encouraged to enroll 
in summer session courses at Oglethorpe University in order to make up the 
deficiency. Any student who is not in compliance with the requirements by 
the end of the fall probationary period will not be eligible for financial aid for 
the spring or subsequent sessions until the requirements are met or a written 
appeal is submitted and approved. 

6. Appeal Process - If significant mitigating circumstances have hindered a 
student's academic performance and the student is unable to make up the de- 
ficiencies by the end of the financial aid probationary period, the student may 
present those circumstances in a written appeal to the Admission and Financial 
Aid Committee. Documentation to support the appeal, such as medi- 
cal statements, should also be presented. The appeal should be submitted to 
the Office of Financial Aid by the first of the month prior to the term begin 
date in order to receive consideration at the next committee meeting. The 
student will be notified in writing if the appeal has been approved or denied.

Application Procedure 



Students applying for the Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant and HOPE Schol- 
arship programs must submit a Georgia Tuition Equalization Grant Application 
which may be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid. 

The application procedures for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Stafford Loan, and 
Federal Work-Study Program are as follows: 

• Apply and be admitted as a regular degree-seeking student. 

• Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Stu- 
dents should make a copy of the FAFSA before mailing it to the federal 
processor. Oglethorpe's Federal School Code is 001586. You can find 
application at www. FAFSA.ed.gov. 

• Keep copies of all federal income tax returns, etc. as these documents be 
required in order to verify the information provided on the FAFSA. 

• Complete Oglethorpe's University College Financial Aid Application which 
is available from the Office of Financial Aid. 

• New students who are determined to be eligible for the Federal Work 
Study Program must complete the Student Employment Application form. 
This form will be mailed during the awarding cycle to those students who 
will be first-time recipients in this program. 

• If eligible for a Federal Stafford Loan, a Master Promissory Note must be 
completed. Generally, loans are certified electronically and once guaranteed, 
a promissory note will be generated. Students are notified to come to the 
Office of Financial Aid to complete the note, or the note may be mailed to 
the student for completion. The Master Promissory Note is valid for ten 
years unless you change schools or your lender. 



Federal Aid Eligibility Requirements 



Demonstrate financial need (exception: Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan). 

Have a high school diploma or a General Education Development 

(GED) certificate or pass an independently administered test approved 

by the U.S. Department of Education. 

Be enrolled as a regular degree-seeking student in an eligible program 

Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non<itizen. 

Have a social security number. 

Register with Selective Service, if required. 

Must not owe a refund on any grant or loan; not be in default on any 

loan or have made satisfactory arrangements to repay any defaulted loan; 

and not have borrowed in excess of the loan limits, under Title IV 

Make satisfactory academic progress. Refer to the Academic Policies 
Governing Student Financial Aid. 

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

53 



Financial Aid regulations require disbursement of funds on a semester sched- 
ule. The University College undergraduate program offers two, eight-week sessions 
per semester. Therefore students on financial aid must register for two sessions 
at 9. time: Fall Sessions 1 & 2, Spring Sessions 1 & 2, and Svunmer Sessions 1 & 2. 

Payment of Awards 

All awards, except Federal Work-Study earnings and some Federal Stafford 
Loans, are disbursed by means of a direct credit to a student's account. Only when 
a student's file is complete can aid be credited to the account. 

Return of Title IV Funds 

If a student completely withdraws from Oglethorpe University during the first 
60% of the payment period and has received federal student financial assistance, 
the school must calculate the amount of federal funds the student "did not earn." 
This process is required to determine if the school and/or the student must return 
funds to the federal programs. 

The percentage "not earned" is the complement of the percentage of federal 
funds "earned." If a student withdraws completely before completing 60 percent 
of the payment period, the percentage "earned" is equal to the percentage of the 
payment period that was completed. If the student withdraws after completing 60 
percent of the payment period, the percentage earned is 100 percent. If the stu- 
dent has received more federal assistance than the calculated amount "earned," the 
school, or the student, or both, must return the unearned funds to the appropriate 
federal programs. 

The school must return the lesser of: the amount of federal funds that the stu- 
dent does not earn; or the amount of institutional costs that the student incurred 
for the payment period multiplied by the percentage of funds "not earned." The 
student must return (or repay, as appropriate) the remaining unearned federal 
funds. An exception is that students are not required to return 50 percent of the 
grant assistance received that is their responsibility to repay. 

It should be noted that the Institutional Refund Policy and the federal Retiu-n 
of Title rV Funds Policy are separate and distinct. Students who completely with- 
draw after the Oglethorpe's refund period has passed and before the 60% point 
of the payment period may owe a balance to the University previously covered by 
federal aid. Students receiving federal assistance are advised to consult the Office 
of Financial Aid before initiating the withdrawal process to see how these new regu- 
lations will affect their eligibility. 

Regulations require the return of funds in the following order: 

1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans 

2. Subsidized Federal Stafford loans 

3. Federal Perkins loans 

4. Federal PLUS loans 

5. Federal Pell Grants 

6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG); and 

7. Other federal aid programs.

Educational Enrichment 




Career Services 



The Career Services Office provides resources to assist students in making re- 
sponsible decisions and strategies regarding career options and job search plans. 
These resources include a career library w^ith information available from books, 
computers, video tapes on occupations, the job search, and prospective employers. 
SIGI PLUS, a computer-assisted career guidance program and other job search 
programs, are available by appointment to explore options and locate employers 
that match individual career interests. Workshops on resume writing, interviewing 
and job search techniques are presented each semester. 

In addition, a number of prospective employers send recruiters to the campus 
each year for the purpose of conducting on<ampus interviews. Current information 
on permanent, summer, and part-time job opportunities is made available to stu- 
dents and alumni on-line. 



Experiential Education 



Beginning in the sophomore year, students can opt to further refine their career 
plans through internships. These programs provide practical experience to complement 
the academic program, as well as give students the opportunity to test the reality of 
their career decisions and gain work experience in their major fields of interest. Stu- 
dents who are already employed must be able to alter their work schedule and duties 
for a minimum of 8 weeks to accommodate an internship. 

Internships are available in a large variety of local businesses and organizations 
including Deloitte and Touche, Atlanta Historical Society, CNN, Zoo Atlanta, IBM, 
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and The Carter Center, to name only a 
few. Oglethorpe is also affiliated with The Washington Center and The Washington 
Semester Program of American University. Internships are available to students on-line 
at www.monstertrak.com. 

Internship opportunities are available in most majors for students who: (1) demon- 
strate a clear understanding of goals they wish to accomplish in the experience and (2) 
possess the necessary academic and personal background to accomplish these goals. 
A minimum grade-point average of 2.0 is required to apply for internships. Transfer 
students must complete two sessions at Oglethorpe prior to participation. Every in- 
ternship requires a statement of objectives and academic requirements, in addition to 
related academic assignments, developed in consultation vdth the student's internship 
full-time faculty supervisor. Upon successful completion of the internship, the student 
is awarded academic credit (graded on a Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory basis) in recog- 
nition of the learning value of the experience. 

Students who are interested in an internship experience should first consult with 
their University College Advisor and then visit the Career Services Office. Students 
may earn 12 hours of internship credit toward their degree. Students seeking more than 
3 semester hours (for one internship site) must submit an appeal form to the Caieer 
Services Office indicating why the internship exceeds the normal number of hours and 
outlining additional projects in which the student will participate. The Experiential 
Education Committee will review the appeal for additional credit hours. 

If no academic credit is needed or sought, a non<redit internship can be arranged, 
utilizing the resources provided by Career Services. 

UC students are required to have a full time Oglethorpe faculty member supervise 
their internship.

handbook, The O Book. 

Student Role in Institutional Decision Making 

Student opinion and view^s play a significant role in institutional decisions af- 
fecting their interests and w^elfare. A comprehensive standardized student opinion 
survey is administered to students annually. A Student Advisory Committee (SAC), 
comprised of University College students v^^ho take an active interest in the issues 
that affect the programs, services and students of University College, was formed in 
1998. The SAC provides an important line of communication between the students 
, and the administration of both University College and Oglethorpe University. The 
advisory committee meets regularly. Participation is open to all currendy enrolled 
University College students. 



Cultural Opportunities on Campus 



There are nimierous cultural opportunities for students outside the classroom. The 
University Program Committee sponsors concerts, theatrical productions, poetry read- 
ings, and lectures by visiting scholars. The Mack A. Rickard lectures expose students to 
leaders in business and other professions. The University Singers perform frequendy 
during the year, including seasonal events, and often feature guest artists. Oglethorpe 
University Museum, located on the third floor of Philip Weltner Library, sponsors 
exhibitions and lectures on associated subjects in the museum. The Playmakers stage 
several productions each year in the Conant Performing Arts Center. Two annual 
events, the Oglethorpe Night of the Arts and International Night, provide a showcase

Policy on Discriminatory and 
Sexual Harassment 

Oglethorpe University places a high value on the dignity of the individual, an 
appreciation for human diversity, and on an appropriate decorum for members of 
the campus community. Harassing behavior can seriously interfere with the work 
or study performance of the individual to whom it is addressed. It is indefensible 
when it makes the work, study or living environment hostile, intimidating, injurious 
or demeaning. 

It is the policy of the University that students and employees be able to work, 
study, participate in activities and live in a campus community free of unwarranted 
harassment in the form of oral, written, graphic or physical conduct which personally 
frightens, intimidates, injures or demeans another individual. Discriminatory ha- 
rassment directed against an individual or group that is based on race, gender, reli- 
gious belief, color, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or age is prohibited. 
Discriminatory harassment is defined as unwelcome oral, written, or physical conduct 
directed at the characteristics of a person or group such as negative name calling and 
imitating mannerisms, slurs, graffiti, or the physical act of aggression or assault upon 
another which interferes with the individual's employment or education; or creates 
an intimidating, hostile or offensive employment or educational environment. 

In addition, sexual harassment of a student by another student, of a student by 
an employee, of an employee by a student, or of an employee by another employee 
will not be tolerated and is prohibited. Any unwelcome sexual advance, requests for 
sexual favors, verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, or any verbal conduct 
that might be construed as a sexual slur that: (1) interferes with performance or cre- 
ates a hostile, offensive or intimidating environment and/ or (2) is an expressed or 
implied condition imposed by a faculty member for evaluation or grading a student, 
or by an employee for evaluating job performance or advancement of a subordinate 
or colleague, will be viewed as misconduct. 

Discriminatory and Sexual Harassment 
Grievance Procedures 

Oglethorpe University has adopted an internal grievance procedure providing for 
the prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by 
regulations under Title VI, Title VII, Title DC, Section 504, the Age Discrimination 
Act, and the Americans v^th Disabilities Act. The following university officials have 
been designated to respond to allegations regarding violations of any of these regu- 
lations: the Provost and Senior Vice President (Dr. Christopher Ames, Lupton Hall, 
404-364-8317), the Director of Human Rescources (Ms. Carol Carter, Goodman Hall, 
404-364-8325), or the Director of Counseling (Dr. Bonnie L. Kessler, Emerson Student 
Center, 404-504-3415). 

Complaints alleging misconduct as defined in this policy on discriminatory and 
sexual harassment should be reported within 90 days of the alleged offense. Com- 
plainants may seek informal or formal resolution. All complainants must complete 
a written Discriminatory Harassment Incident Report which may be obtained from 
any of the aforementioned officials. 

Complainants are encouraged to explore informal resolution before filing a 
formal complaint. Informal resolution focuses on communication, education, and 

61 



resolution while formal procedures focus on investigation and discipline. Informal 
complaints will be resolved within 15 working days with a written resolution 
given to each of the parties involved. If the situation results in an impasse, the 
complainant will be given a notice of impasse within 15 working days from the 
filing of the incident. If a notice of impasse is given and the complainant wishes 
to file a formal written complaint, the complainant must do so within 30 working 
days of the date of notice of impasse unless a waiver in filing time is requested. 

When a formal complaint is filed an investigation will be initiated. The alleged 
harasser will be given 10 days to provide a signed response to the requesting official. 
A copy will be provided to the complainant. If the alleged harasser fails to respond, 
the presumption will be made that allegation(s) in the complaint are true. A written 
determination will be issued to the complainant within 60 working days of the receipt of 
the formal written complaint. If the procedure requires an extension of time, the com- 
plainant will be informed in writing of the reasons, the status of the investigation, and the 
probable date of completion. 

If the complainant disputes the findings or is dissatisfied with the recommend- 
ations, the complainant may request reconsideration of the case by the President, 
Dr. Lawrence M. Schall, in writing within 45 working days of receipt of the written 
determination. Complaintants also have the right to file with the appropriate state or 
federal authorities under Title VI, Title VII, Title IX, Section 504, the Age Discrimi- 
nation Act, and Americans vsdth Disabilities Act. 

Cases that may require disciplinary action vdll be handled according to the estab- 
lished discipline procedures of the University. Student organizations in violation of 
this policy may be subject to the loss of University recognition. Complainants shall 
be- protected from imfair retribution. 

Nothing in this policy statement is intended to infringe on the individual rights, 
freedom of speech, or academic freedom provided to members of the Oglethorpe 
community. The scholarly, educational, or artistic content of any written or oral pre- 
sentation or inquiry shall not be limited by this policy. Accordingly, this provision will 
be liberally construed but should not be used as a pretext for violation of this policy.

Accounting is the language of business. It is a service activity whose function is 
to provide quantitative information, primarily financial in nature, about economic 
entities that is intended to be useful in making economic decisions. The purpose 
of the major in accounting is to acquaint the student vdth the sources and uses of 
financial information and to develop the analytic ability necessary to produce and 
interpret such information. The student learns to observe economic activity; to select 
from that activity the events which are relevant to a particular decision; to measure 
the economic consequences of those events in quantitative terms; to record, classify, 
and summarize the resulting data; and to communicate the information in various 
reports and statements to appropriate decision-makers.

Business Administration 



Maj 



I or 

(Bachelor of Business Administration Degree) 



The business administration curriculum is designed to prepare students for ca- 
reers as business leaders who will earn their livelihoods by discerning and satisfying 
people's wants and needs. Success in this endeavor requires (1) the ability to think 
independently, (2) knowledge of business terminology and business institutions, 
both domestic and international, and (3) communication skills. The ability to think 
independently is enhanced through study of the courses in the core curriculum. 
Courses in economics and the functional areas of business administration introduce 
the student to business institutions, terminology, and methods of inquiry. Most 
business administration and economics courses have a communications component. 
These courses and the capstone course in business policy provide opportunity to 
develop and enhance thinking and communication skills. 

The program in business administration is also designed to give graduates a 
solid foundation in the concepts and analysis of business functional areas that will 
be needed for graduate study. Mainy graduates of this program go on to receive a 
Master of Business Administration degree or a master's degree in a specific busi- 
ness area. 

In addition to preparing students for business careers and graduate school, 
the program in business administration is valuable preparation for other careers. 
Students learn administrative skills and methods of inquiry that are applicable in 
governmental and non-profit organizations. Since much legal practice involves busi- 
nesses and a knowledge of business terminology and institutions, this major is an 
excellent background for the study and practice of law.

History Major 

(Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies Degree) 



History, it is said, is the queen of the humanities. The history major is designed 
to give students a systematic understanding of cultures and civilizations across time 
and space. The major is intended to be cross disciplinary, requiring students to 
take courses in history as well as other relevant fields in the humanities and social 
sciences. Through the range of courses, students may explore a wide range of prob- 
lems and issues in the past, as well as their connection to current social, political, 
and cultural realities. 

In addition to providing students with a wide-ranging acquaintance with the 
historical past, the major is designed to help students refine fundamental intellectual 
skills. All the courses place a heavy emphasis on developing reading, writing, and 
speaking skills. Texts and writing assignments are intended to help students hone 
their analytical skills. Since many of the history courses are taught in a seminar 
format, students must also present their views orally and be prepared to explain 
them to their peers. The interdisciplinary component of the major serves to intro- 
duce students to the wide array of methods that historians may use in their quest 
to understand the past. Above all, the major is designed to provide students with a 
broad context for understanding the world, their place in it, and the varying forces 
that have shaped human society.

Psychology Major 

(Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies Degree) 



Psychology uses scientific methods to study a broad range of topics related to 
behavior and mental processes, including motivation, learning and memory, hu- 
man development and personality, psychological disorders, social interaction, and 



72 



physiological bases for behavior and thought. The study of psychology should help 
a student to develop skills in three basic areas: skills associated with the scientific 
method, including data collection, analysis, and interpretation; skills that are useful in 
the construction and evaluation of theories, such as analytic and synthetic reasoning; 
and skills in human relations through which the student learns to become a more 
precise and more tolerant observer of human behavior and individual differences. 
Many students with a background in psychology choose careers in psychology-related 
fields, such as counseling, psychotherapy, or research, but many others choose ca- 
reers that are not so directly tied to psychology. For example, psychology provides 
a good background for careers in law, education, marketing, management, public 
relations, publishing, and communications.

The political thought and practice of the Middle Ages in the West were 
profoundly shaped by Christianity. One of the distinquishing marks of 
the modern era is the challenge by political thinkers of Christianity's 
central role; the origins of that challenge are to be found in Machiavelli, 



95 



Hobbes, and Locke. This challenge, however, is not of the same nature as 
the philosophical investigation of revelation which had been carried on 
by ancient political philosophers. Not only that, but this challenge comes 
hand-in-hand with an account of human life that is in many ways limited 
and limiting even as it claims to be liberating. It provokes a critical reaction 
from within the framework of modern political thinking. Some of the most 
influential representatives of this criticism are Marx and the representatives 
of the political movements his thought inspire. The primary goal of this 
course is to gain an acquaintance with the uniquely modern way of resolv- 
ing the tension between reason and revelation, its view of the regime and 
citizenship, and its account of the human good. Prerequisites: UCCOM 
1712 and UCPOL 1701.
