There is no Passport session for new TU students who enter in the spring semester. Instead, there is a scaled-down orientation prior to the start of classes. The orientation will fulfill many of the roles of Passport and fall orientation, including providing for students to meet with an advisor who will help each student register for his/her spring classes and answer questions regarding the academic program. Students will be afforded the opportunity to take the mathematics placement test (Sec. 6.4.1. through Sec. 6.4.3.) and the language placement test (Sec. 6.4.4.), as necessary, so that their first semester’s schedule can be accurately prepared. There is no fee for orientation for those TU students who enter in the spring.
Degree-seeking international students who enter in the spring will coordinate with the international admission counselor to ensure their proper advising, registration and access to mathematics and language placement tests.
For international exchange students who enter in the spring, the international student services coordinator arranges advising between Oglethorpe and the student’s home institution.
