Each student is issued an identification card during orientation. This ID card is your SCAD Card. Use it to access card-secure SCAD buildings (including residence halls), attend SCAD-sponsored events, pay for meals, check out books from the library and more.

To receive your SCAD Card during orientation, present a government-issued photo ID (for example, driver's license or passport). For more information, students may email [email protected] or call the SCAD Card Center at Bradley Hall at 912.525.6153 or the Turner Express office at 912.525.8406 in Savannah. Students in Atlanta may email [email protected] or call 404.253.3426.
