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.

Q: How important are the ACT scores for applying to SCAD?
Undergraduate admission is strongly based on GPA and either SAT or ACT scores. If your GPA is below 3.0, SAT is below 1000 (math and reading), or ACT is below 21, we recommend submitting supplementary materials such as letters of recommendation or a statement of purpose essay to enhance your application.

Q: What I don't understand is how my portfolio will help or encourage administration to accept me as a freshman if it doesn't have to be turned in along with the application. I already applied but I still have to work on my portfolio and I'm worried that I won't get it in soon enough to help SCAD make a decision on me.
As an undergraduate applicant, your portfolio will only be reviewed for artistic scholarships. Admission will be determined by your academic background (GPA and SAT or ACT scores), and you can enhance your application by submitting supplementary materials like letters of recommendation and a statement of purpose essay.

Q: Once accepted, how can I set up housing? I know I pay the fee and then what comes next? Can I choose a dorm? How long does the process typically take?
After being accepted, you will first need to pay your enrollment fee, which gives you access to MySCAD and your SCAD student email, and a housing deposit if you plan to live on campus. You will have a housing questionnaire available in MySCAD where you can indicate your housing preference and answer a series of questions to help our housing staff pair you with a similar roommate. You also have the option of requesting a specific roommate (make sure they also request you on their form.) If you have any questions about accessing or completing the housing form, email or call your admission adviser.

Q: Hello, I have a friend coming in as a freshman for winter 2013, I'm currently a sophomore and I was wondering if I could request her as a roommate for fall 2013 even if shes a quarter behind?
