New first-year students are enrolled in their courses by a Compass Academic Advisor prior to their MAP Day orientation preceding the first day of classes at Oglethorpe University. When first-year students complete their MAP Day orientation, they are assigned a Compass Academic Advisor whose purpose is to provide the support and direction necessary to ensure they succeed their first year at Oglethorpe University.

After the successful completion of their first year, TU students will be assigned a primary academic advisor from among the teaching faculty; when possible, the primary academic advisor will teach in the student’s discipline of interest. If a student has not decided their major, Academic Success will serve as their advisor until they choose a major.
If a student wishes to change their primary adviser, they my do so by filling out the Change of Information form available on the HUB website.
Students should always work with their primary academic adviser first, using the Academic Success only in cases when their primary academic adviser is unavailable.
