Gap Year FAQs

 

Why enroll at OU?

In an effort to support students who may be making difficult decisions during the pandemic, we’re making it easy to enroll in small, high-engagement, discussion-based courses. Taking a gap semester? Nervous about taking classes face-to-face? Want to stay close to home? Classes at Oglethorpe are remote (login from your couch, the beach, or anywhere in between), interactive, and yes, your professors will know your name!

How much does it cost?

Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have drastically reduced the price of our part-time course offerings. Courses cost $625/credit hour, with most courses costing $2,500 for 4 credit hours. This cost is less than half of our standard rates!

Gap Year students are not eligible for financial assistance and tuition is due before the first day of class.

What classes can I take?

Students may enroll in 1 or 2 courses for a maximum of 8 credit hours. You will indicate your preferred subject areas on your application and a member of our Office of Admission team will confirm your selections with you. Want to enroll full-time? Great! Just contact admission@oglethorpe.edu and let us know.
