Pre-Departure and Initial Arrival

International Student Arrival
Welcome to Agnes Scott College!

We admire your courage to study in the United States and are delighted you chose Agnes Scott College. It is common for new students, particularly those from another country, to alternate between excitement and apprehension. The thrill of arriving in Atlanta after nearly a year of preparation is often intermingled with the anxiety of landing in the world’s busiest airport. This section is intended to help you prepare for the journey and navigate your way to our campus and your home for the next four years.
