evidence that the independent study involves approximately the same amount of time and faculty supervision as a required or elective course. In order to complete registration of the independent study


for credit, students also must pay the necessary tuition. Undergraduate students must have completed at least 90 credit hours with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 to participate in an independent study; graduate students must have completed at least 15 credit hours of graduate level courses with a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0.


Course Schedule Changes


SCAD reserves the right to cancel a class and change the schedule, location, or professor of classes at any time. Students are responsible for checking their schedule prior to the start of each quarter to apprise themselves of any changes.


Transient Status/Credit


SCAD students who wish to attend another college or university during their enrollment at SCAD and receive transfer credit may apply for transient status. In order to qualify for transient status, undergraduate students must be in good academic standing and have a minimum grade point average of 2.0. Graduate students requesting transient status must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0, and should be advised that transient credit is rare at the graduate level. Students must complete their final 45 hours in residence at SCAD and are not eligible for transient credit during that period. Undergraduate students may transfer no more than 90 total hours of credit including transient credit. Students who qualify for transient status, should first consult


with their staff adviser regarding the other institution and pertinent course information for the class(es) the student wishes to take. Students should then complete a Transient/ Letter of Good Standing form, available on MySCAD, including documentation of application and/or acceptance to the other institution and a course description or syllabus from each course the student wishes to take. The application is evaluated for eligibility for transfer credit, and the student is notified of the decision by the registrar’s office within two weeks of application. This process must be completed before the student begins transient study. Students should also consult with the office of financial aid to determine the impact of transient status/credit on their financial aid or scholarship award. Upon completion of transient study, the student must submit


an official transcript from the other institution that reflects the final grade(s) earned in the course(s). These transcripts must be submitted to the transfer admission office by the end of the term immediately following completion of coursework in order for the student to receive transfer credit. Undergraduate students must earn a minimum grade of C for a course to be applied as transfer credit while graduate students must earn a minimum grade of B. The credit is recorded as T on the transcript and is not calculated into the student’s cumulative GPA.


Inactive Status/Readmission


Undergraduate students who have attended SCAD, but have not been enrolled at SCAD for at least five consecutive quarters are


considered inactive and must apply for readmission and meet current admission requirements in order to return to SCAD. Undergraduate students who have attended another college or university on any basis other than as a transient student, must apply for readmission and meet current admission requirements in order to return to SCAD. All readmission applications are evaluated on an individual basis by the Admission Review Committee. Any prior awards of financial aid and/or scholarships may or may not apply. Students should complete new FAFSA forms and re-submit any required materials to be considered for financial aid or scholarship awards. Upon readmission, students must follow the requirements of the current catalog. Graduate students must adhere to the graduate student continuous enrollment policy.


Graduate Student Continuous Enrollment


Graduate students must maintain continuous enrollment until graduation by completing at least one program fulfillment course in two separate quarters during each academic year until completion of all degree requirements or until the student withdraws by written notification to the office of the registrar. Students who have completed all other requirements for the degree except the thesis must register for Thesis 799 Continuing Thesis. Once a student is eligible to enroll in Thesis 799, he or she must register for this course each quarter (up to the five- year degree completion limit) until this degree requirement is met. Students enrolled in Thesis 799 maintain their official student ID card, and all rights and privileges afforded enrolled students, such as access to facilities and use of equipment and library resources.


International Students and Online Coursework


International students attending a campus within the United States must follow the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services rules pertaining to online courses. The rules, which are outlined on Page 2 of the I-20 visa, include the following regarding registration in online coursework: Registration in an online course is allowed, but 50 percent or more of classes taken in a quarter must be in a classroom (not online). Typically, this means international students could take only one online course out of a total of three courses. For more information on this or other academic matters related to international status, students should contact the SCAD office of international student services.


Temporary Grade of Incomplete


A student who has suffered serious personal illness or other emergency circumstances during the academic term should notify the dean of students as soon as possible. If the student is unable to complete all assignments by the end of the quarter, he or she may request a grade of incomplete through the appropriate school dean before the end of the quarter, explaining the reason and attaching documentary evidence of the illness or emergency circumstance. The dean’s decision is final. A student who is assigned a temporary grade of incomplete


is required to complete the remainder of the unfinished work in a satisfactory manner by the mid-term of the following quarter. A temporary grade of incomplete automatically changes to an
