Agnes Scott is a women's college and can, therefore, only accept students who identify as female.

As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available.

Agnes Scott is a liberal arts college. Students are encouraged to take courses in a variety of departments and are not required only to take courses in their field of study. Agnes Scott has been ranked second in the United States in the percentage of graduates who went on to earn Ph.Ds in economics. 

ASC is academically rigorous and is writing intensive. One hundred percent of the permanent ASC faculty have a Ph.D. degree or the terminal degree in their field, so expectations of student performance are quite high. The average class size is 15 students, so there is a high level of personal interaction between students and faculty. ISEP students have said that Agnes Scott College is academically challenging and personally rewarding. 

Students typically enroll in three to four classes per term which average 12 to 16 hours in class per week. A term runs for 15 weeks.

HOUSING

Residence halls have internet and laundry facilities. Washers and dryers are accessible with an ASC ID card. 

If placed in the Avery Glen Apartments, students may have an additional cost of $50-$80 to purchase a WiFi router. Each apartment is equipped with a washer and dryer and has cooking facilities. The apartment complex is within walking distance from campus.
