Residence Hall and Testing Protocols
Students living in residence halls may arrive on campus January 9 or choose a check-in date closer to the currently planned in-person class date (Monday, January 24). Students will be required to provide a negative COVID-19 test, taken within 72 hours of arrival on campus..
Regular testing for students, faculty and staff will continue for the campus community. Agnes Scott has partnered with Curative to ensure that routine testing is provided on campus.

All students, faculty and staff are required to receive their booster shots as soon as eligible, but no later than January 31, unless granted an exemption for medical or religious reasons.
