Policies and Forms
The housing guidelines are now listed in the 2016-2017 Student Handbook.
Agnes Scott College is a residential liberal arts institution. The residential environment is a key component of each student’s college experience. Students enrolled at Agnes Scott College are expected to live in on campus housing for the duration of their tenure at the college. Any exception to this policy must be approved by the Office of Residence Life. Exceptions to this requirement are contained within this document and the student handbook.
Requests by current students must be submitted no later than March 1st, for the Fall semester and November 1st, for spring semester. Transfer and First year students must submit request before June 1st. Late request may automatically be denied or reviewed on a case by case basis.
All Agnes Scott College students are encouraged to take full advantage of the residential experience by sharing rooms with other Agnes Scott students. However, sometimes students have specific needs that indicate the sharing of a room can be detrimental to their physical/ mental health and/or ability to be successful at Agnes Scott. In these cases, students can request special accommodations that may include access to air conditioning, a single room, or access to a private bath. Students must fill out the special accommodation form and provide appropriate documentation to ensure appropriate housing accommodations are provided. If a person has a medical condition that requires a specific diet and exemption from the meal plan they must fill also add this information to the special accommodation form. You must turn this form in to Kelly Deasy from Office of Accessible Education and Academic Advising, in Buttrick Hall G13A. Fall semester requests are due March 1st for current students and June 1st for newly admitted students. Previously approved special accommodation students do not need to submit new documentation unless their circumstances have changed.
