Advising

Helping You Plan for Success

Adult Degree Program (ADP) students

All ADP students will be assigned an academic advisor from the staff of the Academic Success Center. ADP students will maintain this advisor regardless of their major area of study.

Traditional Undergraduate (TU) students

All TU students will be assigned an academic advisor based upon their declared major field of study.

Advisor information is listed on a student’s record in multiple places in OASIS but the easiest to access is “My Profile” on the right hand side of the OASIS Student Menu. Students should always work with their primary advisor first for any academic needs, questions, or concerns.

Note: First year traditional undergraduate students will be a part of Compass Advising and will be assigned a Compass Advisor for the duration of their first year at Oglethorpe. 

Changing Primary Academic Advisor

Students may request a different academic advisor. This is often expected when a student changes majors. Here are the ways you can be assigned a new academic advisor:

  1. You can submit the Change of Advisor form to Enrollment Services requesting a change to a specific new academic advisor. That new advisor must agree to be your new academic advisor. The HUB will change the assignment, and the new advisor information will display in OASIS.
  2. Some majors will require you to have an advisor assigned from within the content area of the major. If you change your major into one of these areas, the Division Chair for that area will assign you a new advisor. The HUB will change the assignment, the new advisor information will display in OASIS, and you will receive an email notification to your OU email account.
