I set up a payment plan. Do I need to worry?

Are you current on your plan? (This means you’ve made all your payments in full to date.)
Yes.Then you’re all set. Just remember to make your final installments on schedule.
No. Then follow the steps below because you have a Outstanding Balance hold on your account.

I have an Outstanding Balance hold. A staff member in the Hub told me that I have a balance from Spring 2017. How much is it?

You can view your bill electronically anytime by going to Oasis and logging into your Student Account Center.

Play the tutorial below to see how to view your bill in OASIS:
Viewing Statements GIF
I have logged in and see the amount on the first page for how much I owe. Where do I pay?

If you’re paying with cash, you must come pay in the Hub located on the ground floor of Lupton Hall.

If you’re paying with a check or card, follow these steps:

  • Visit pay.oglethorpe.edu to make a one-time payment online.
  • On the next screen you can choose either “Payment Plan” or “One-Time Payment”. YOU MUST SELECT “ONE-TIME PAYMENT”. Payment plans are no longer available for the Spring 2017 semester. (But it’s a good screen to know since you will use it to set up your Fall payment plan.)
  • Okay, I’ve selected “One-Time Payment”. Now what do I do?
    • If you’re paying with a check, select “E-Check” from beneath “Payment Options”. Enter the information accordingly. Hint: Make sure you know the account number and routing number. Press “Submit” and confirm. You’re done! Please note: It can take 3-4 business days for a check payment to be processed. Your hold will not be lifted until Oglethorpe University receives payment from your bank.
    • If you’re paying with a credit or debit card, select the appropriate option beneath “Payment Options”. Enter your card information in the boxes that appear. Please note there is a 2.99% convenience fee added to your statement for using your card. Even if you come and pay in the Hub with a credit card, you will be charged this convenience fee. If you agree to it, then select “submit” and confirm the payment. You’re done!
  • If you intend to satisfy your balance by securing a loan, Enrollment Services will need to verify the loan has been approved before it can be added to your account. If the loan has been approved for an amount that will completely satisfy your remaining balance, Enrollment Services can lift your associated hold.

Every student must have recently-submitted emergency contact information on file with the University to be eligible to register.

 

Where do I submit my emergency contact information?

  10. You can also enter information about your hospital preference, insurance information, etc., but please know this information is not required to have on file to allow registration.

  12. You can close this window/tab at any point and will still be logged into your OASIS account in the initial window you had open.

I’ve already submitted emergency contact information – what do I need to do?

  1. Log into OASIS.
  2. Select “OASIS for Students.”
  3. Select “Update Emergency Contact Information” in the first menu called “OASIS for Students”. A new window/tab will open for this information.

pencil icon STEP TWO: Get registered for classes

How do I see when I am eligible to register for classes?

You will get an email to your OU email from the HUB with your registration date.

Registration is based on earned hours and does not include hours you are currently taking.
To see how many earned hours you have, log into OASIS, select “OASIS for Students”, Under the “Academic Profile” section select “Transcript”.

Online registration for Summer/Fall 2017:

Monday, April 3 – Thursday, April 6: Students with at least 81 earned hours of credit;
Tuesday, April 4 – Thursday, April 6: Students with at least 49 earned hours of credit;
Wednesday, April 5 – Thursday, April 6: Students with at least 17 earned hours of credit;
Thursday, April 6: Students with 16 or fewer earned hours of credit.
*Students can register beginning at 7 a.m. on their initial registration date. After that, it is open at all times.

How do I see my degree audit?

  1. Log into OASIS
  2. Select “OASIS for Students”
  3. Under “Academic Profile”, select “Program Evaluation”
  4. Follow the prompts to run a degree audit showing you all of your current program requirements – including which requirements you have satisfied and which are still outstanding.

What if my degree audit is showing the wrong major?

You need to formally update your major. You can do that through this online form.

You can still run a “What if?” audit by selecting the program you want in the drop-down menus when you click on the “Program Evaluation” link in OASIS. Doing this will let you see the requirements in another major and how your courses have satisfied those requirements.

Why doesn’t my degree audit show my minor?

It may not be formally declared on your record.

You can see by clicking on the “My Profile” link in the same section of your OASIS account. If the minor is there, send an email to hub@oglethorpe.edu asking your minor be added to your degree evaluation. If the minor isn’t listed there, you can formally declare it by filling out this online form.

How do I know who my academic advisor is?

  1. Log into OASIS
  2. Select “OASIS for Students”
  3. Under “Academic Profile”, select “My Profile”.

This will list the academic information the University has on file for you, including your major, minor, and advisor. It also lists contact information for your advisor.

What if the advisor listed isn’t correct?

OASIS lists what is officially on your record. If you think the advisor is inaccurate, you can submit a Change of Advisor request via this online form. 

Show-up to your advising appointment prepared. 

What does that mean?

  1. You have already looked at your degree audit.
  2. You have started looking at the course schedule listing in OASIS to see what classes might make sense.
  3. You have thought of questions about your degree program and sequencing all of the required courses so you can graduate when you want.
  4. You are willing to work with your advisor on back-up plans for courses in case your original plan isn’t realistic or seats in the courses you originally wanted are gone when you can register.
  5. You have thought about potential summer courses you may take here or at home for transient credit. You will need approval from your advisor for any transient courses.

house STEP THREE: Get your housing set up

If you want to participate in on-campus housing selection, you must declare your intent by April 9.
All students must declare their housing intent for the fall semester by May 13.

Yes!

Even if you intend to live in Gables Brookhaven, request an exemption from the on-campus residency requirement, or have completed your residency requirement, we still need to know your housing situation for the fall semester. Please know that students living at Gables Brookhaven to fulfill their residency requirement are required to purchase the Gables Meal Plan.

If you have been selected to live in Greek housing for fall 2017, you should complete the Housing Intent form but you do not need to participate in room selection. Your chapter will coordinate with us and you will receive a room assignment from Residence Life.

Exemptions do not roll over from past years. You must request an exemption every year.

In order to declare your intent, you must have completed all previous requirements on this page and be registered for classes for Fall 2017. Intent must be declared in order to participate in on-campus housing selection.

Sign in to Simple Campus Housing

Go to oglethorpe.simplecampushousing.com and either sign in or sign up for a new account. You can also find the link to Simple Campus on Oglethorpe’s Residence Life website.

If you have already created an account, but are having trouble logging in, you may have used a non-OU email when you signed up, so try logging in with your personal email account. Be careful to click the small, gray “Sign In” button instead of the large, yellow “Sign Up” button after entering your login information.

If you are signing up for a new account, (requires Student ID and last name for verification), you MUST use a leading zero in front of your ID (0123456) in order for the system to recognize you.

Declare Your Intent

Once logged into Simple Campus Housing, select “Returning Housing Intent” under Fall 2017. Indicate your plans for residency by choosing the option to live on campus, live in Gables Brookhaven, request an exemption, or live off campus due to completion of residency requirement, and complete any supplemental information.

If you are requesting an exemption from the live on campus requirement you must also complete the Exemption Form listed under Fall 2017. Students who may be exempt from the residency requirement include those who are 22 or older, married, or live with a parent/guardian within 25 miles.

Save the forms and you’re done!

You’ll receive an email from Residence Life with your housing selection time or exemption approval. Please know that exemption approvals are granted by a committee that meets twice per month beginning in April. Please be patient in waiting to hear if your exemption has been approved.

If you have declared your housing intent by April 9 and registered for a full-time course load (12+ credit hours) you will be eligible to participate in housing selection. Housing selection will be open April 10-11. If you are eligible, you’ll receive an email with the assigned time within that period that you may log in to Simple Campus and select your housing.

Please note: After logging in, you will be required to complete the housing contract before selecting a space.

Housing selection times are based on cumulative credit hours for students registered for 12+ credit hours in the fall semester:

  • April 10, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM: Students with 96 or more credit hours may select rooms.
  • April 10, 9:00 PM – 11: 59 PM: Students with 64 or more credit hours may select rooms.
  • April 11, 8:00 PM – 11:59 PM: Students with fewer than 64 credit hours may select rooms.

For more information, please contact Residence Life at residencelife@oglethorpe.edu.

After your lottery time passes you will still be able to log in to Simple Campus Housing to select housing through May 13.

If you were not eligible for housing selection April 10-11 you may select your housing April 13-May 13.

Housing selection will be open on a first-come, first-served basis April 13-May 13 for students who missed their assigned time or did not declare their intent by the April 9 deadline.

Housing selection will close on May 13th.

Students who have not selected their housing by this date will need to request placement from Residence Life. All students who have not completed their 3-year residency requirement or been approved for an exemption for Fall 2017 will be placed and charged for room and board.

Bad idea!

You will not slip through the cracks unnoticed if you don’t declare your housing. If you have not fulfilled your 3-year on-campus housing requirement, all you’re doing by not going thought the housing selection process is ensuring you will get last choice of housing.

Follow the steps above you make sure you’re happy with your fall living arrangements.

Can I pull in my friends to room with me?
When selecting your space, you will be able to “pull in” all of your preferred roommates/suitemates. This means up to three people depending on which suite you select. To pull someone in, they MUST be eligible for housing, though they can be a different class status. For example, if Student A has registered for 12+ credits by April 9th but Student B hasn’t. Student A will not be able to pull Student B into a space on April 10th – this will be noted when attempting to select the student.

How much does housing cost?
Visit the HUB website to see all tuition and fees for 2017-2018, including room and board. If you choose a double space but the other bed is not filled, you will be asked consolidate rooms with other residents or you will be charged the single room rate for the space. Please be sure to request a roommate!

Do I have to complete an application before selecting my room?
No. The Housing Intent form is our version of an application. As long as you complete that (and register for classes) you will be able to select your room. Both registration and intent form should be completed by April 9th in order to eligible for housing.

I submitted the intent form. Why don’t I see a countdown to my lottery time?
Countdowns and specific time assignments will come out midday on April 10th. Check back then! As long as you have submitted your form and registered for a full class load, you will be eligible for the first phase of selection.

Why doesn’t the room I want have a “reserve” button?
You will only be able to reserve rooms that have not been already selected and match any pre-determined gender/accessibility settings.

Why is the roommate I want grayed out?
This means that the roommate you are requesting is not eligible for housing yet due to registration or that they have selected or been requested for another space.

How long will my requested roommate have to accept? How will they accept?
Once a student is requested as a room/suitemate, they will be notified via email. When they log in to Simple Campus Housing, they will see their request on the left side of the page and can choose to accept or deny. Students will have 12 hours to accept the roommate request. If not accepted within 12 hours, the space will reopen for other students to select.

Are there other students selecting rooms at the same time as me?
Yes, small groups of students are allowed in the system to select simultaneously. Everything happens in real time, so you are always seeing exactly which rooms are available.

 

Congratulations! You’re all set for the fall semester. Woo hoo!

We’re happy to help!
