On behalf of the Office of Academic Advising, welcome to Agnes Scott! As an accepted student, you may have many questions about academic policies here. Whether you are wondering about degree requirements, selecting courses, choosing a major or what the academic load will be like, this portion of the website can help. When you arrive on campus for Orientation you will meet with your assigned faculty adviser for individualized assistance. In addition, the Office of Academic Advising trains peer advisers who will be available during Orientation to help in small group settings.

I hope you find this information helpful, and I’m happy to answer additional questions you may have.
