 STEP ONE: Get your account in order

If you have a hold on your account, you won’t be able to register for classes.

How do I check to see if I have any holds?

  1. Login to your OASIS account (contact the Help Desk if you’ve forgotten your password)
  2. Select “OASIS for Students”
  3. Under the “Communications” section in the right hand column, select “Student Restrictions”. The following screen will show you the holds you have.

I don’t know why I have this hold. What do I do?

  • Contact the office that has added the hold to your account.
  • The left hand column on the “Student Restrictions” page displays which office added the hold to your account. *Please note that Financial Aid, Registrar, & Student Accounts are all located in the Hub for Enrollment Services.
  • Check the table below for contact information for that office and contact them with any questions.

I resolved my hold. How long will it take to update?

It varies from office to office. Please ask this question when you contact that office to get the hold removed.

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 Fall 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:

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 Fall 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?

  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.
  4. You may need to log in again with your user name and password.
  5. Under “Emergency Contacts”, you will see any you have previously entered, or you can click on the “+” icon and add a new contact.
  6. If you add a new contact, add the fields as requested. Make sure to include all phone numbers. We need to know how to contact this person quickly if you are in an emergency on campus.
  7. When finished, click the “Add Contact” button at the bottom.
  8. The contact will immediately display on the screen. You can add another contact, edit this new contact you just created, or delete the new contact using the menu options.
  9. Add as many emergency contacts as you want to enter.
  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. You must have emergency contact information and phone numbers for those contacts on file to be eligible to register.
  11. When you have finished entering your contacts, click on the “Confirm” button near the top of the page.
  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?

You must confirm your emergency contact information is still accurate at least every 6 months.

  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.
  4. You may need to log in again with your user name and password.
  5. Under “Emergency Contacts”, you will see any people you have already properly entered into the system. Verify that information is still accurate by clicking on the “Confirm” button near the top of the screen. If it isn’t still accurate, edit your contacts as needed and then click on the “Confirm” button near the top of the screen.

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 Spring 2018:

Monday, October 30 – Thursday, November 2: Students with at least 81 earned hours of credit;
Tuesday, October 31 – Thursday, November 2: Students with at least 49 earned hours of credit;
Wednesday, November 1 – Thursday, November 2: Students with at least 17 earned hours of credit;
Thursday, November 2: 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.

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

We’re happy to help!
