Q: I'm just finishing up my junior year of high school, SCAD is my college of choice, when should I apply to it, am I too late to apply. Or am I supposed to apply when I'm a senior? It's just that I don't know when one should start applying for colleges.

Students may apply up to two years prior to coming to SCAD so you’re not too late at all!  :-)  You may apply at www.scad.edu/apply.

Q: Do you know if weighted GPA's are taken into account when deciding which students to allow in and for financial aid? My weighted GPA puts me in a much Better spot than the unweighted, which stands at Just under a 3.0.

When reviewing for admission we look at the entire transcript not just the the GPA. All students are welcome to submit supplementary materials to enhance their files.

Q: I'm thinking of applying to SCAD but after moving to a new school that has pushed me to the side and doesn't value the arts, my gpa has dropped significantly. I haven't been able to pursue any arts inside of school so I'm going to take classes at a community college but I'm still concerned about my gpa. Do you think there is still a chance for me to go, and what can I do to help my chances?

Student whose GPA is below a 3.0 are encourages to submit the supplementary admission materials to strengthen their file.

Q: All I see on the internet are awful reviews of SCAD. I want to go so much but now I'm scared.

The internet provides tons of information and opinions. When reading anything online it is important to consider the source. SCAD is a private, non profit, accredited university conferring bachelor and master degrees in over 40 different areas of art and design. If this is what you are looking for I would encourage you to connect with us, visit in person, or start a dialogue with one of our knowledgeable admission representative! We look forward to hearing from you.

Q: Hi, I was accepted a couple of days ago. I'm pretty excited but I wanted to know if the meal plan and room and board is included in the 32,950 tuition or if it is added to it, which would make 42,000+ ?

Congratulations on your acceptance! This should help you calculate your total expenses to study at SCAD.

Q: Hello, I'm currently applying for graduate admissions and am stressing over my portfolio. The four year institution I graduate from did not encourage creative ideas/talents. I have been online and reference he SCAD website and aside from a business plan I completed my last semester before graduated, I'm not sure where to begin. How crucial is the portfolio for a graduate student application and do you have any suggestions.

A program specific portfolio is required for graduate admission. If you have questions or would like feedback please contact your admission adviser.
