Q: If I have a degree in fine arts but wanted to go to scad to get a degree in animation would I have to start as a freshmen and retake all the basic art and core classes for the animation degree?
We will review your existing credits for transfer, which will depend on factors such as the content of the class and whether it fits into your curriculum here at SCAD. You may need to take the basic classes here if you have not already taken a similar class that we are able to transfer, but you can discuss those details with your admission counselor to get a better idea of exactly which classes will still be required.

Q: At an information session I attended recently, I learned that I can apply as a junior in high school. Would doing that improve my chances of being accepted in any way?
We recommend applying at least 6 months early for better scholarship opportunities, but applying early will not necessarily affect your admission status. Admission is strongly focused on academics, such as GPA and either SAT or ACT scores, and you can enhance your application with optional materials like letters of recommendation and a statement of purpose essay. Applying early can also allow you to begin working with an admission adviser for individual admission and financial aid assistance.

Q: I'm currently at Miami-Dade College. I would like to know if SCAD will accept most of my credits from MDC. Is there a check list you guys may have of courses offered at my school that are equivalent to yours?
We don’t have a public checklist available, but you can email the admission department at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we have already approved your current college for transfer credits, and you can also read over our guidelines for transfer credit. Once you apply, your assigned transfer admission counselor will review your transcript for transferable credit on an individual basis.

Q: If you wanted to pursue a major in animation, would you need a portfolio of films you have done, or can you submit a portfolio of something else? I ask because I have not had many opportunities to work with that kind of media as a high school student.
If you’re applying to SCAD as an undergraduate student, a portfolio is optional and does not need to match your intended major. You can look at portfolio guidelines and a helpful Portfolio Preparation Brochure at www.scad.edu/portfolio.

Q: Hi, I'm in interested in applying for Fall '13. What's the exact process? Can I apply first and then send in all the papers? If I apply online now and send my papers (portfolio,statement,recommendation, etc) before the end of February, will it be ok?
Yes, that would be fine! It’s a good idea to begin the application process early so that you can start working with an admission counselor. We recommend sending the rest of your materials by mid-February for the best scholarship opportunities, but we don’t have a strict deadline. You can also submit your application materials earlier if you’d like, we can review for admission and scholarships for Fall 2013 as soon as you’re ready.

Q: I applied for winter 2013, and my portal account says my application is submitted. I was wondering how long will it take to let me know if I am accepted or not ?
Your file will go up for review once all your application materials have been received, and the undergraduate admission review takes about 2-4 weeks.

Q: Are there any SCAD housing locations that allow pets?
Here is what our housing policy says:
Pets are not permitted in any residence hall. Freshwater non-flesh-eating fish and approved service dogs are the only exceptions to this policy. However, fish must be kept in a properly maintained aquarium of 10 gallons or less.
