Prospective Students

Given the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the best interests of our campus and community, we will not be holding official in-person visits or events until further notice. 
Though campus buildings are closed to the public, our admission counselors are available Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (when campus is open) to greet you, chat with you on our front porch, and set you up with our self-guided tour. We encourage you to fill out this self-guided tour request form at least 24-48 hours prior to coming to campus in order for us to prepare and welcome your arrival. Please note that Agnes Scott requires all persons to wear an appropriate face covering while on campus and complete a health screening at the Office of Admission before exploring campus. We are excited to get to help you learn more about Agnes Scott and our Scottie family!

Information for Undergraduate Applicants for Fall 2021

The Office of Admission recognizes that applying to college is going to look different this year. 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.
  • Merit-based scholarships and financial aid are available to students applying by the regular decision deadline, March 15. For questions about scholarships and financial aid, reach out to your admission counselor.
  • 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.
