The full SCAD experience
All SCAD Rising Star students utilize university spaces — from classrooms and computer labs to studios and production suites — in the development and completion of class assignments. Students have access to SCAD libraries, galleries, and other academic resources.
Students participating in the SCAD Rising Star residential program live in a SCAD residence hall, and all students enjoy meals at a SCAD dining hall. They are immersed in life at The University for Creative Careers and have the opportunity to explore the rich culture of Savannah and Atlanta — during a summer creating lifelong connections.
SCAD Rising Star courses span a variety of disciplines and include introductory foundation studies courses, complementary general education classes, and major-specific electives. Discover the specific classes offered at Rising Star, as well as an overview of the course structure and selection process for the program.
