Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Agnes runs off of an honor system that consists of an honor pledge and honor code. These are the foundations of the Agnes experience and must be accepted before a prospective student will be admitted to the school. Agnes, as an institution, is truly committed to its mission statement, which is "to educate women to think deeply, live honorably, and engage the intellectual and social challenges of their times." Like any institution, Agnes does have rules and policies, and the school adheres to them. Agnes isn't a dry campus, but if you're underage and caught in possession of alcohol, you'll have to deal with the consequences, which usually include a letter to parents as well as community service. All in all, policies are strict, but there are few infringements, so the punishments are more forgiving for first-time offenders. 

Most classes at Agnes have an attendance policy that is included in your final grade, and these policies are strictly enforced, unless there are extenuating circumstances. The RAs and RDs are fairly tolerant, as far as noise and food is concerned, but they will get you for violation of visitation policy—especially in the first-year dorms. At Agnes, the administration is kind, but they are strict when it comes to violations of the honor code or other serious drug or weapons violations on campus. Overall, it's important to follow the honor code because it does truly dictate life on campus as well as the severity of the punishments.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Not observing quiet hours

Visitation Policies
Visitation differs for first-years and upperclasswomen. First-years are allowed to have visitors Monday through Thursday from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m., as well as from 12 p.m. Friday to 12 a.m. Sunday. Upperclasswomen may have visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but they can only have the same guest stay three consecutive days.
Did You Know?
  • As a first-year student, you will be required to accept the honor code as a part of your life within the Agnes Scott community. The College takes this pledge very seriously, and all academic and personal conduct is evaluated not only by school regulations, but also the honor code.
  • The purpose of honor court is to hold students accountable for their behavior, to continue to be an institution where the community is able to "[live] honorably."
  • Because Agnes has the honor code, we have self-proctored exams!
