I have a GED. Can I apply to SCAD?

Yes. A certificate of General Educational Development from the American Council of Education is considered equivalent to a diploma from a U.S. high school.

What are the language/math course requirements for acceptance?

Yes. You can find the Common App at Students submitting the Common App will still have to pay the $40 application fee. Additionally, the Common App is also integrated with SlideRoom. If students choose to submit a portfolio, they are redirected to SlideRoom, where they can submit the portfolio through the Common App Undergraduate Portfolio category. The SlideRoom fee (whether they go through the Common App or the SCAD website) is $10.

Can I save my application and come back to it later?

If you start the application but do not complete it, it will not be saved and you will have to start over from the beginning.

Behind the Scenes of ‘Say It With Music’ - Creating a Musical Virtual Reality Experience

Simone, a timid waitress, uses music as an instrument of change to revive a monotonous fine dining restaurant and enliven its stuffy owner, Gustavo. Throughout the evening, Simone discovers she has an unexpected connection with an upbeat waiter named Nathan, who shares her lyrical passion.

This musical was inspired by Irving Berlin's "Say It With Music."

Through the use of virtual reality, the film’s makers were no longer confined to a single, composed frame. They developed a 360-degree immersive movie-watching experience.
