Financial aid is made available to qualified students to assist them in paying for their education at SCAD. Financial aid information such as the types and amounts of financial aid available, the process to apply for aid, policies and procedures related to the awarding of financial aid, and disbursement information for each aid program, is updated annually.
Students can access their SCAD financial records through MySCAD to review financial aid application requirements, download required forms, receive award notification and view all aid applied to their student accounts.
Students applying for admission to SCAD should contact the office of admission regarding financial aid.
U.S. citizens and legal residents who hold a high school diploma or GED may apply for federal aid by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the federal processing center as soon as possible after Jan. 1 each year.
Other state aid
Students who qualify for state programs that are payable to out-of-state colleges should contact their state's educational authority for information on application and payment.
