Prospective Students

The offices of Undergraduate Admission and Financial Aid staff are currently working remotely, and the campus Welcome Center is closed; we recommend you choose from one of our virtual communication or visit options listed below in lieu of physically visiting campus.   

At this time, we are working hard to create opportunities for students and guests to experience our campus from home. We will share our virtual opportunities here.

Information for Undergraduate Applicants for Fall 2021

The Office of Admission recognizes that this school year is going to look a little different, and as a part of that applying to college is going to look different. Here are a few things Agnes Scott is doing to help you with your application process this year:

  • Test-Optional: Agnes Scott has been a test-optional college for 10+ years. Students attending school in the U.S. are able to choose to submit SAT/ACT scores, complete an Evaluative Interview with an admission counselor, or send in a Graded Writing Sample. All options are seen equally in consideration for admission and merit scholarships. For more information about our test-optional policy, click here.
  • Holistic Review: Every high school has a different plan for this school year. We review every application holistically, meaning we’re going to find out how your school is handling grades and classes and keep that in mind when reviewing your application.

Flexibility: Are you having an issue with your application or required materials? Talk to us about options. You can find your admission counselor here.
