Virtual Achievement

Admitted Student Event

Congratulations on being accepted to Agnes Scott College! You're on your way to becoming a part of a unique community of leaders and global change agents. Your next step will make everything official, and we want to make sure you have all of the information you need to help you see the benefits of an Agnes Scott education.

Though we regret that our annual admitted student events cannot be in person this spring due to the pandemic, we are committed to ensuring you experience a virtual admitted student event like no other. During our admitted student events via Zoom, you'll find the chance to connect with other incoming first-year Scotties, learn what to expect during your first year, ask your most pressing questions and get assistance completing your next steps.

A Place Where Every Voice Is Valued

Taliesyn Jax '22

"During Achievement, I was able to get a sense of what the Agnes Scott community was like. We are a community full of diversity, inclusivity, and are all-around incredibly welcoming. I was also able to attend a mock class, which helped me explore what an inclusive women's education looked like. I felt that, in an Agnes Scott classroom, every voice was valued equally which helps students feel empowered to actively participate in their education."
