Engaging the Challenge, Together.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Agnes Scott College has been committed to providing the highest-quality education to our students and maintaining learning environments that are safe, supportive and equitable. 

Although we hoped to welcome back students to campus for the fall semester, the recent public health metrics, including the growing rate of new COVID-19 infections in Georgia and surrounding states, made it clear that the best decision for our campus community is to move to virtual instruction for the fall semester. As we transition to virtual learning for the fall semester, Agnes Scott's priorities for remote teaching and learning are: 

  • To uphold the Agnes Scott ideals of excellence, honor and engagement
  • Commit to a shared sense of classroom community
  • Communicate openly and regularly
  • Identify and address barriers to inclusion
  • Treat one another with compassion, respect, and concern for each other's well-being

On this site, community members will find details about remote-only instruction, resource information for faculty, staff and students and frequently asked questions.

While we hoped that we would be able to bring our community back together on campus, our commitment to your health and safety and that of our faculty and staff comes first.

Update on Planning for Fall Semester 2020

Jul. 20, 2020

Until a few days ago, I remained hopeful that we could return to campus for the fall, even if that meant having fewer students live on campus to achieve more realistic physical distancing. We had already been planning a dual-instructional mode for many of our courses, a combination of remote and in-person teaching and learning. However, as COVID-19 infections continue to spike here in Georgia and in other states where our students live, we are uncertain about our ability to follow through with these plans.
