Apply earlyMay 06 2009Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Apply early. Submit a portfolio to be considered for an artistic scholarship. Make good grades and score high on the SAT/ACT to get an academic scholarship. Take AP classes to transfer credit in. Research, research, RESEARCH! Your parents may be investing their money into whatever college you decide to go to, but you are investing your time and efforts. Make sure SCAD is where you would like to go.

TAKE YOUR SAT/ACT as many times as possible so you can obtain the most financial aid as possible. AND turn in a portfolio.When I applied I had to have three reccommendations, a letter of content, and filled out an application. I did all the above. GOOD LUCK!

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 dependsMay 04 2009Art & Design Department
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.
SAT: 1360 Female
