SCAD isnt easy to get into anymore, it used to be but now of days its really hard! I honestly dont even have any advice on how to get in, because if I was in high school applying now there is no way my grades and portfolio would get me in. Thank goodness I applied when I did. Good luck! But seriously SCAD is awesome

It turns out that they accept anyone with a High School Diploma, Transfer Credits, and a GPA of 2.5 or better... AND the ability to pay. Sorry folks it's the truth.

Take a lot of Art classes. If your school has a good program, EVERYTHING is relevant and will be built upon.

SCAD classes are expensive, so it's smart to cut back on SCAD's mediocre general ed classes if possible (it's art classes that you want!) If you think you can handle it, take AP Classes, courses that give you dual college credit, IB courses, SAT II exams, etc. of topics such as:
1. ENGLISH (Composition, Speech, and an elective)
2. MATH or SCIENCE (SCAD requires a Math class, but if you pass SCAD's math exam, you can substitute Math with a Science)
3. A Social Science Course
4. Things that SCAD might take as Free Electives or General Education Electives.
I did this and started off as a sophomore!!

Take ACT or SAT. (Or both, and maybe even two times each, like me)

Make art. make art. make art. make art. build a portfolio. enter competitions. build experience. learn to write well and speak well. make more art. repeat. <--that should be a GIVEN to anyone who remotely thinks of applying.

ACT: 34 Female
