The costs for room and board during summer are not included. Summer rates are currently $575 per month, for a May through August total of $1,725. There are no meal plans available during the summer months. There is an additional charge for students who need housing during winter break in December.

Scholarships for International Students

Agnes Scott’s merit-based scholarships are highly competitive. The academic qualifications determining scholarship awards are dependent on the strength of the applicant pool. Priority consideration will be given to students completing all application requirements by the Early Action II deadline.

Scholarship offers and award amounts will be determined by a holistic review of the application for admission and thorough evaluation of academic indicators, including (but not limited to) rigor of coursework, high school GPA and standardized test scores. Financial aid packages will be sent following acceptance to Agnes Scott.

Scholarships are automatically renewed for four years, provided the student maintains the academic requirements as stipulated in the offer of scholarship award letter.
