New student: Freshman

Orientation for students and families is generally an all-day event designed to help facilitate a smooth transition for all new students entering the SCAD community. You will have opportunities to become better acquainted with the academic environment at SCAD, the support services available and the college facilities, review important college policies and procedures and start your integration into the larger SCAD community. In addition, you will meet other new SCAD students, college leaders, faculty and administrators. 

Family members will hear about ways to support their students during various changes and experiences they'll encounter at SCAD — academic, social and personal.
