8.5. Graduation Requirements

Each Oglethorpe student must complete the degree requirements listed below for the appropriate degree type connected to his/her/their academic program.

For all degree types, any student requesting a modification for any graduation requirement must seek approval from the relevant program coordinator and provide documentation of that approval to enrollment services.

Semester hours earned by graduate study at other institutions may only count towards an Oglethorpe undergraduate degree with prior approval by the Provost’s Office. ARCHE graduate courses, 4+1 bridge programs, and articulation agreements are examples of these types of educational opportunities.

Oglethorpe students intending to complete two majors should consult the policies in Sec. 6.19.5. as well as the appropriate requirements given below.

Students who have earned a baccalaureate degree at another regionally-accredited post-secondary institution and who wish to obtain a second baccalaureate degree from Oglethorpe, and international students who have a post-secondary degree or similar credential from a non-U.S. college or university and who wish to obtain a baccalaureate degree at Oglethorpe, must consult Sec. 6.29. as well as the appropriate requirements below.
