Dec 09 2013Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc I got in with an essay and a small portfolio.
I know plenty of students accepted without portfolio.
I recommend, if you apply, have a decent understanding and some experience of the subject you want to enter.
ACT: 28 Female
Oct 06 2013Other Getting in was a surprisingly easy breeze. A portfolio is actually OPTIONAL here, which is strange for an art school. A 4.0 GPA PROBABLY had something to do with me getting a scholarship, but from what I've heard, SCAD will throw money at anyone. If you're looking to come here, do yourself (and your wallet) a BIG favor and take care of your liberal arts and foundations in a community college. You will save a BUTTLOAD of time and money and you'll be able to jump into your department right away.
Aug 10 2013Art & Design Department They only require a high school diploma and expect you, only after accepting you and getting your money that you are extremely proficient in art. They don't even bother you teach. I would not recommend this school.
Jan 12 2013Art & Design Department I had a brilliant portfolio and would of had a better scholarship if i was not rushed through the process. They bypassed telling me how to do initial portfolio reviews and said i could sign up for scholarships in april. they did not tell me these were not the same scholarships they provided for admitting students and i was left with nothing.
Dec 05 2012Other Honestly, I sent in half an application and was accepted.
Nov 25 2012Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc Anyone can get into SCAD. Not everyone can pay for it, at least not after they graduate. My advice is to take foundations courses at a decent community college. The quality is nearly the same at a modest fraction of the price. Then, look for every alternative to going to SCAD before committing to the decision to attend there.
Don't believe the hype of their advertising or campus tour.
