In case of an emergency, MySCAD enables the Department of Public Safety to instantly connect with students, faculty and staff. This invaluable tool allows university officials to share vital information when necessary, including evacuation plans and closings.
To make sure your contact information is up-to-date, log on to MySCAD > My Info tab > My Personal Info channel, and then select “Update Emergency Notification."
The effectiveness of MySCAD relies on accurate contact information. All members of the SCAD community should keep their information current to ensure delivery of emergency messages. It may be prudent for some users to setup quarterly reminders to check contact information so it doesn’t become outdated.
In the event of a closure or an evacuation, this website will continue to function as an important source of information.
Notifications of closure
The president and the executive vice president may authorize closings and evacuations. They can do so prior to a mandatory evacuation by government emergency management officials. In the event of such an occurrence, students will be notified immediately.
