Family orientation

Orientation for students and their families is designed to help facilitate a smooth transition for all new students as they embark on a new chapter of their lives at SCAD. Orientation participants become acquainted with the academic environment and support services and facilities at the university and review important policies and procedures. As part of their welcome to the SCAD community, new SCAD students have the chance to meet and interact with current student leaders, faculty and administrators. All new students are strongly encouraged to attend.
