6.3.1. New TU Students Entering in the Fall

6.3.1.1. MAP Days

In conjunction with the provost, the dean of student success, and the office of admission, the office of campus life 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. Prior to MAP Days, students will be encouraged 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 the office of student success may craft first semester schedules guided by student major and academic interests identified through the completion of the online course preference form and based on course availability.

Entering degree-seeking international students who are unable to attend any MAP Days session will coordinate with the international admission counselor to ensure an effective transition to Oglethorpe.

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 an effective transition to Oglethorpe.

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.
