COMPASS for Students

COMPASS is a new online system that provides students with an easy way to connect with their course instructors, major advisors and staff advisors across campus.  

COMPASS at Agnes Scott...

  • Enables instructors and advisors to send alerts if there are concerns about academic performance, “kudos” to acknowledge good performance, and referrals to additional support services.

  • Enables online appointment scheduling with instructors, advisors and support service offices who may schedule through COMPASS.

  • Provides students with a view of their “Success Network” in one place—includes information about current instructors and advisors.

  • Includes a list of all student support offices that can help students.
