Digital or Time-based Media A strong portfolio includes foundation and graphics skills, where applicable, effective use of 2-D form and composition, and an understanding of additive and subtractive color theory. In addition, portfolios should demonstrate an aesthetic awareness and effective use of software and tools. A strong video portfolio includes an awareness of composition, storytelling and technical skills, with attention given to costumes, set and acting. Professional presentation of the cover, label and inventory sheet is recommended.


Equestrian Equestrian studies applicants may submit a four-minute professional performance video, preferably from a horse show. This may include footage of riding, jumping and/or dressage. An appropriate video should demonstrate experience and level of performance. An inventory sheet should accompany the video, citing the venue, trainer information, level of competition and date the show took place. A résumé of experience, awards and achievements also should be submitted.


Fiction or Non-fiction Writing Applicants may submit fiction or non-fiction writing samples such as research papers, short stories, dramatic writing, poetry or other forms of creative or professional writing. All samples must include applicant’s name and title of work. Research papers should provide a clearly stated premise, findings and conclusion; must be well organized; and must demonstrate consistent use of citation and documentation conventions according to a specific writing style. All writing samples must be submitted electronically in a typed, double-spaced format and should not exceed 1,500 words.


Performing Arts Applicants should present a four-minute audition and interview. Audition dates may be found on the SCAD Web site at www. scad.edu/audition. Applicants who are unable to attend a SCAD audition may submit a four-minute performance on DVD. Performing arts applicants should prepare two contrasting


monologues or one monologue presented with song or dance. Applicants who plan to sing or dance in a SCAD audition, must supply the music for accompaniment in the rehearsed key. Auditions include a cold reading. A list of pieces that have been prepared, résumé and headshot (optional) must be submitted at the audition. Résumé of experience may include acting or other performance, directing, stage management, costume or set design, sound design or lighting design. Performance is reviewed on the following qualitative measures: voice production, movement, musicality, physical commitment, energy, relaxation, characterization, memorization and character portrayal.


Visual Arts or Design Traditional visual art or design pieces may be executed in any medium, in black and white or color, and may include, but are not limited to, drawing, painting, design, printmaking, collage, photography, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, fashion, furniture or fiber art. Portfolio pieces may represent classroom assignments as well as independent projects and emphasize fundamental drawing skills in still life, nature, portraiture and figure studies. Whenever possible, the portfolio should demonstrate drawing from life rather than from photographs, yet still maintain originality of concept. Works should be purposeful. Portfolios are reviewed on the following qualitative measures: aesthetic awareness, composition, drawing, design, color


perception, spatial perception, quality of presentation, technique and originality. Favorable consideration is given to strong 2-D and 3-D work that shows attention to technique, drawing, scale and original design.


Portfolio-based Course Exemption Admitted new students may request and submit documentation for portfolio-based course exemption through the admission office. Currently enrolled students should request and submit documentation for portfolio-based course exemption to the appropriate department chair. Documentation should demonstrate mastery of skills and sufficient knowledge of content taught in a specific university-level course. A student who is exempted from a required course does not earn academic credit for that course, but may substitute a course from the same subject area as approved by the department chair to fulfill the number of hours required to complete degree requirements.


Undergraduate Acceptance Completed applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and applicants are notified of the admission decision accordingly. Exceptions to the general rules of admission may be made


for applicants of unusual motivation and ability. Application materials cannot be returned. In some cases, the Admission Review Committee may request additional materials from applicants whose overall completed application file does not meet or exceed regular admission standards. This could include cases where standardized test scores are below 1000 on the SAT (math and reading only) or 21 on the ACT and/or the secondary school, high school or college grade point average is below 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. All applicants may submit supporting materials such as portfolio, recommendations, statement of purpose and/or may interview to enhance their application file. Decisions are made on a case- by-case basis. Otherwise qualified undergraduate applicants to the


professional architecture program who have SAT math scores lower than 540, who have ACT math scores lower than 23, or who are unable to demonstrate an aptitude for the study of mathematics and science may be admitted to the professional architecture program on a provisional basis. One condition stipulates that the student must complete MATH 101 with a grade of 2.0 or higher, and complete MATH 201 and PHYS 201 with a grade of 2.0 or higher in order to pursue the professional architecture degree. The credit hours earned in MATH 101 may be applied as elective credit hours required for the professional architecture degree.


Graduate Admission


SCAD encourages applications from students who demonstrate successful completion of appropriate coursework on the undergraduate level and adequate preparedness to undertake graduate-level study. Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree or should anticipate completion of a bachelor’s degree before enrollment in the graduate program. All applicants are evaluated individually according to previous educational experience and level of achievement. Graduate students apply for and are accepted into specific


disciplines. Students who wish to change from one discipline to another must meet all admission requirements for the new discipline.
