All correspondence concerning admission should be addressed to the Admission Office, Oglethorpe University, 4484 Peachtree Road N.E., Atlanta, Georgia 30319-2797 or via e-mail. After receiving an application form, the applicant should complete and return it with an application fee of $50. Students may also apply online.

Entering freshmen must submit the following: an application essay, official high school transcripts, standardized test scores (SAT/ACT), and a recommendation form completed by a high school counselor or teacher. Achievement tests, portfolios, or videos are not required for admission purposes but will be considered if submitted. Home Schooled applicants should contact the Home School Advisor for portfolio requirements. Interviews and campus visits are strongly recommended. If, upon review of an applicant's file, it is felt that further information would be helpful (i.e. mid-year grades), the student will be notified.

When a student has completed the application process, the Admission Committee will review the application. If accepted, the student will be required to submit an enrollment deposit of $300 to reserve accommodations for the appropriate semester. The deposit is refundable through May 1.

Admission to the undergraduate division of the University will be determined by evaluation of the following:

  • Completed application form
  • Official transcript of high school work
  • SAT or ACT scores (Our SAT code is 5521. Our ACT code is 0850.)
  • Recommendation Form and/or Letter of Reference
  • Application Essay

Students will be considered on either an Early Action process or Regular Decision process.
