What is the procedure for logging in for the first time?
After being admitted/deposited you will receive your Oglethorpe User ID. Most of the time this is your first initial and your last name together. In some cases where there are more than one person with the same name a number will be at the end of your user ID.
After you receive your ID you will need to log onto OASIS to set your password.
First go to www.oglethorpe.edu
Click on the OASIS link at the bottom of the page:
This will open a new window (you may have to disable pop up blockers).
On the OASIS window click on the LOG IN link at the top of the page.
On the login page you will enter your user name and for the password you will use the last six digits of your Social Security Number. If you do not have a Social Security Number please contact the Help Desk for your temporary password. Entering a password hint will help you later should you ever forget what your password is.
You will see a screen telling you that your password has expired. You will need to choose a new password. In this screen enter your User ID again and the last six digits of your Social Security Number as your old password.
Your new password MUST between 6 and nine characters long. It cannot be less than 6 or more than 9. The new password MUST have at least one letter (A-Z) and at least one number (0-9). No one but you will know what this new password is.
Once you have successfully logged in this will be your User ID and Password for OASIS, E-mail and to log onto any of the computers available on campus.
If you have any problems completing these steps please contact the Helpdesk
