Institute Format and Applications
Levels 1 and 3 take place over the course of the spring semester.
Levels 2 and 4 take place over the course of the fall semester.
Participants must re-apply for each level with applications due by the second Friday of classes at 5:00pm. Applications can be found under the Forms section at connect.oglethorpe.edu/organization/OLI after signing in with your OUConnect login information.
Institute Selection Criteria and Minimum Expectations
All students in good standing in regards to student conduct as well as having a 2.5 GPA (or greater) are eligible to apply for OLI. Emphasis for selection into the program will be placed on effort given on the application submitted by the student and less so on prior leadership experience.
It is expected that students are absent no more than once during each Level’s 6 meeting sessions throughout the semester. Additional absence may require the student to restart the Level the following year.
