Pretty much nothing, I applied, they accepting me really fast, not even a stupid portfolio review to get in so any amateur off the street who thinks they can draw because they can trace a picture can get in.

I took the ACT and the SAT but onlyFeb 03 2012Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I took the ACT and the SAT but only submitted my ACT scores to SCAD (they were better). When I applied it was 23 or higher on the ACT and you're in scholarship land. I also submitted a portfolio which granted my a combined scholarship award of 15,000 a year.

If you have any art (whether it be a movie you made, a painting, your sketchbook) show it. It doesn't even have to be good, just show them you have the background in it. Show them you love it and they will reward you with money. But keep in mind, that money could disappear with one bad F, so have a back up plan
ACT: 27 Female
