7.1.2.2. Core Equivalency for Study Abroad

Every student attending an Oglethorpe-approved semester or year abroad during their junior year (August through May) at Oglethorpe may petition the Core director to have their course work abroad count as an equivalency for one semester of the junior year Core, either COR 301 Historical Perspectives on the Social Order I or COR 302 Historical Perspectives on the Social Order II, at the student’s discretion. In order to receive the exemption the student must petition the Core Director upon successful completion of the study abroad experience. A student may use the Core Equivalency for Study Abroad as an equivalent for either COR 301 or COR-302, but not both. Students may not combine the Core Equivalency for Core Electives Courses with the Core Equivalency for Study Abroad to fulfill their 300-level Core requirements; at least one of either COR 301 or COR 302 must be taken at Oglethorpe.
