Q: What if my highschool doesn't offer any art courses?
That is not a problem at all as are students are taught all of the basics and foundation of art before working on their program of study.

Q: When would it be a good time to apply for scholarships and be considered for full tuition since they're limited. And what exactly are you looking for in the academic scholarship and artistic.
Students should apply no less than 30 days from when the quarter starts, however it is best to apply as early as one can. Entering students may be offered a scholarship from SCAD based on demonstrated academic and/or co-curricular achievement, including leader- ship, volunteer and community service, involvement, and artistic accomplishment. Financial need, as indicated by completion of the FAFSA or other documentation, is taken into consideration for need-based scholarships. A scholarship recipient may accept additional scholarships from other sources, as well as additional forms of financial aid, if qualified. Most scholarships are awarded to degree-seeking students, are applied quarterly, and may be renewed annually through completion of a bachelor’s degree (or up to 225 attempted hours) as long as the recipient remains enrolled and maintains a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0.

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.
