What is the code to submit GRE scores to SCAD?

The GRE code is 5631.

Can I double-major?

Many of the undergraduate majors offered at SCAD complement each other, and students may choose to earn a double major. With careful course selection and financial planning, students can double-major without substantially prolonging their programs of study. Students who put forth that extra effort gain credentials and expertise that may be invaluable to their careers.

What is a nondegree-seeking student? Can I take graduate classes as a nondegree-seeking student?

Nondegree-seeking admission is an option for students who would like to take undergraduate classes at SCAD without pursuing an entire degree. Nondegree-seeking applicants can only take undergraduate classes and must submit an application for admission, a résumé and a nonrefundable US$40 application fee.  Nondegree-seeking students are not eligible for financial aid or scholarships, but they may reside in SCAD housing on a space-available basis.

How do I register for first-quarter classes?

All incoming students are registered for their first-quarter of classes at SCAD by a student success adviser. Fall class registration usually begins in August. Keep in mind that your schedule is only tentative and subject to change until you receive your official class schedule at orientation in September. You will have the opportunity to discuss or request necessary changes to your schedule with an adviser at orientation if needed. A typical first-term freshman course schedule includes three classes and usually consists of a general education course (such as English or Communication, etc.) and two foundation studies courses (such as 2-D or 3-D Design, Color Theory, etc.) All first-term freshmen will also be registered for a course called First Year Experience, which is designed to assist students in becoming acclimated to university life at SCAD.

How does eLearning work?

Each quarter is 10 weeks long. During each eLearning course, you have 10 units, one unit per week. Each unit will have different assignments depending on the course and weekly topics, but generally include a reading assignment, discussions and a project. Classes are asynchronous and synchronous: asynchronous because you can log in anytime and anywhere, and synchronous because you have designated due dates. There are no designated meeting times. All SCAD eLearning classes follow the same academic calendar as the Savannah and Atlanta locations. The program of study is the same, and many of the same faculty that teach at the Savannah and Atlanta campus teach online. Allow approximately 12 to 17 hours per week per unit for each eLearning course (remember there are 10 units per eLearning course). For more information, visit scad.edu/elearning.

How do I apply?

You can access the online application at scad.edu/apply.

Do you require the writing portion of the SAT?

Applicants may submit the writing section of the SAT as part of their application file; however, at this time, we do not consider the writing score when reviewing for admission.

What if my grades and test scores are below SCAD's preference?

All applicants may submit supplementary materials to enhance their admission files. Applicants whose high school or secondary school grade-point average is below 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or who did not score at least 1000 on the SAT (math and reading only) or at least 21 on the ACT are strongly encouraged to submit supplementary materials, such as a portfolio, audition or writing submission, recommendations, statement of purpose, résumé/list of achievements and awards, and personal or telephone interview. These items will enhance your application and give the committee a better understanding of what type of student you will be if accepted to SCAD.

What should I do to prepare to apply to SCAD?

We give admission preference to students with a grade-point average of 3.0 or above and scores at the national average or above, which is 1000 for the SAT (combined math and critical reading) or a composite score of 21 for the ACT. We encourage all students to apply, however. If your scores are below the recommended SCAD average, there are several supplemental items you can submit to help strengthen your overall file, such as a résumé, letters of recommendation and a statement of purpose. Review the admission requirements for entering freshmen at scad.edu/admission/admission-information/freshman.

I have dual citizenship. Should I apply as a domestic or international student?

Students who have dual citizenship are considered U.S. citizens regardless of where they live or what their other legal citizenship is. They should apply as domestic students.
