Join in special events for prospective students
SCAD offers a number of options for prospective students and their families to explore locations, discover programs, and meet faculty and current students.
Undergraduate and graduate courses are taught on the quarter system, with each course carrying five hours of college credit. Students normally enroll in three courses each quarter, spending 15 to 20 hours per week in class and at least 15 to 20 hours per week working on assignments outside class. The normal academic year includes three quarters. Students may enroll in the summer quarter as well; however, course offerings may be limited.
SCAD accepts applications year-round for all quarters, so there are no firm deadlines to apply. It is recommended, however, that students apply at least six months in advance to allow time to arrange for financial aid and no later than 30 days prior to the start of the quarter. Fall quarter is the most popular quarter; it has the most applications and the most course offerings. Early application is encouraged if you wish to enroll in fall quarter.
