Admission to the undergraduate division of the University may be gained by presenting evidence of successful completion of secondary school work in the form of results from the College Entrance Examination Board's Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) or the results from the American College Testing Program Assessment (ACT); and, by submitting a letter of recommendation.

Arrangements to take the SAT or ACT may be made through a secondary school guidance counselor or by writing directly to one of the testing agencies. For SAT write to College Board, Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, or Box 1025, Berkeley, California 90701. For ACT write to American College Testing Program, P.O. Box 451, Iowa City, Iowa 52240. It is to the applicant's advantage to take one of the tests in the junior year of high school. 

Please use the following codes on your tests to send the results to Oglethorpe automatically:

  • SAT:  5521
  • ACT: 0850

Applicants should normally have or be in the process of completing a secondary school program including appropriate courses in English, social studies, mathematics, and science. While an admission decision is typically based on a partial secondary school transcript, a final transcript must be sent to the Admission Office by the candidate's school, showing evidence of academic work completed and official graduation.

The Oglethorpe application contains a recommendation form and a list of other materials, which must be submitted by the applicant. No application will be considered and acted upon until the items indicated have been received.
