Gone are the days of long lines during registration week — because, in less than four weeks, Oglethorpe students will begin registering for classes using OU’s new online registration system.
Starting April 4, traditional day students and those in the Master’s program will begin online registration for Fall 2011 using the OASIS database.
Gail Meis, Oglethorpe’s Registrar, says that OU is moving toward a paper-free system that will make registering for the fall much easier for students and give them more control in the process. To assist in the move toward electronic registration, the Registrar’s office will guide students with e-mail updates and an OASIS how-to video.
“We implemented online registration in response to our students’ requests,” said Meis. “After completing a successful pilot with 150 students last semester, online registration for Fall 2011 classes will be available to all students. Two of the biggest benefits to students are no more long lines at the Registrar’s office, and the convenience of electronic drop/add over the summer.”
