Transfer & Nontraditional Students



For more information on the college and Office of Admission response to COVID-19, see our Coronavirus Updates for Prospective Students and Families.





If you have attended a regionally accredited institution in the past five years, you are considered a transfer or nontraditional student. Students over the age of 24 are also considered nontraditional students even if you have not attended college previously. Successful transfer or nontraditional students typically enter Agnes Scott College with a college GPA of 3.0 or higher and a minimum of 30 credit hours. (If you are a current high school student who has taken college credit, please visit the high school student how to apply page).
