How do I log in for the first time?
Your username/user ID, password, email address
After being admitted and successfully paying your deposit, you will receive your Oglethorpe User ID or Username. Most of the time, this is your first initial and your last name together. In some cases, when more than one person has the same first initial and last name, a number will be added to the end of your user ID (Example: If your name is John Doe, your user name will be jdoe. If Jane Doe has an account made before you, then jdoe1 will be your username).
After you receive your username, you will need to log into 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). Alternatively, type oasis.oglethorpe.edu directly into your web browser's address bar.
On the OASIS window, click on the LOG IN link at the top of the page.
On the login page, you will enter your username next to User ID and last six digits of your Social Security Number next to Password. 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 create 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 be between 6-9 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).
Once you have successfully logged in, this will be your User ID and Password for OASIS, E-mail, Moodle, Petrelnet, and any Network computers available on campus. Be advised that it may take up to 30 minutes for your new password to sync with Oglethorpe systems.
To access your e-mail account, click here to find links to the e-mail login page. Your e-mail address will be your email@example.com (Example: if your username is jdoe1, then firstname.lastname@example.org will be your e-mail address). Use your e-mail address and the password that you setup in OASIS to log in.
YOU MUST SETUP YOUR PASSWORD IN OASIS BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO LOG INTO YOUR EMAIL, OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS IT!
If you have any problems completing these steps, please contact the Help Desk.
