Academic Advising

advisingNew 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.
