6.3.1. New TU Students Entering in the Fall

6.3.1.1. MAP Days

In conjunction with the provost, the director of academic success and advising, and the office of campus life, the office of admission schedules and coordinates MAP Days each summer. All students who intend to enter during the ensuing fall semester are expected to attend one of these sessions. During MAP Days, 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 prepared most accurately.

Entering degree-seeking international students who are unable to attend any MAP Days session 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 fall, the international student services coordinator arranges advising between Oglethorpe and the student’s home institution.

For non-international students who are unable to attend any MAP Days session, arrangements are made by other means to ensure proper advising, registration and access to mathematics and language placement tests.

Students are warned that some classes may be closed for late registrants.

6.3.1.2. Orientation and Welcome Week

All new Oglethorpe students must attend scheduled orientation and welcome week activities. All students matriculating will pay an orientation fee (see Sec. 5.1.3.). This fee helps pay for various activities and events held during orientation.
