Rising Star travel description

Wait to make travel arrangements until written confirmation of your acceptance has been received. Accepted students are responsible for their own transportation to and from Savannah, Atlanta or Hong Kong. Both SCAD Savannah and SCAD Atlanta are easily accessible by train, bus, automobile and airplane. SCAD Hong Kong is easily accessible by airplane or ferry from southern China.

Rising Star students are offered a complimentary SCAD shuttle service to and from SCAD Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and to and from SCAD Savannah and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport. This service is offered at specific times on arrival and departure days. Interested students may sign up after acceptance.

For Rising Star Hong Kong students, a shuttle bus operated by Gold Coast runs approximately every hour between the Hong Kong International Airport and the Gold Coast Residences. Tickets are HK$38 (approximately US$5); passengers pay when they disembark. SCAD staff and student representatives meet you at the clubhouse to assist you with check-in.

Arrival and departure

Students arrive and check in at the residence hall on the first day of the program (Hong Kong: June 20, 2015; Savannah: June 20, 2015; Atlanta: June 21, 2015). International students must notify the SCAD Summer Programs team at least three weeks prior to the first day of the program if they need to arrive one day before check-in.

All students must vacate assigned rooms by the prescribed time on the last day of the program. Checkout times will vary based on campus location. Program participants who fail to follow proper check-in/checkout procedures may be subject to additional fees.
