It is not difficult to get into SCAD, itMay 04 2009Other
It is not difficult to get into SCAD, it is a private institution. However, many people who end up going have received a combined honors scholarship or have a bunch of loans. If you have a decent portfolio and good test scores you can get at least a few thousand dollars. About a third of my friends received at least $10,000 a year.

Send in a great portfolio - the scholarship depends on it greatly. The scholarship you get when you are accepted is the one you'll probably have all 4-5 years, so try to get a good one.
