For TU students, general education consists of the following components:
- Satisfactory completion of the TU Core (see detailed exposition below).
- Satisfactorily completion of 1 semester hour of FYS First Year Seminar I (for those who enter Oglethorpe as first-time freshmen) or 1 semester hour of OGL 101 Introduction to Oglethorpe (for those who enter Oglethorpe as transfer students or who are international students). This component of the TU general education experience is discussed in detail in Sec. 10.14.
