Applicants who have earned a five-year NAAB-accredited Bachelor of Architecture degree may apply to the professional Master of Architecture degree program or to the postprofessional Master of Architecture degree program. Applicants who have earned a non-NAAB-accredited undergraduate degree in architecture or have earned an accredited undergraduate degree in another discipline may be admitted into the professional Master of Architecture program with required undergraduate prerequisite courses. Such applicants are required to take a minimum of 90 credit hours to complete the professional Master of Architecture program. All graduate degree applicants should review the graduate


candidacy and completion requirements in the academic programs and policies section.


Graduate Admission with Intensive Graduate-level Coursework Intensive graduate-level coursework provides a bridge for academically qualified graduate students who need additional practical skills, contextual knowledge and studio work in order to prepare for the rigorous specialized disciplines offered at SCAD. Upon admission, graduate students may be assigned an


intensive program of up to 15 additional hours (three courses) in their course of study. Intensive programming may not be offered every quarter or at every SCAD location and, thus, may change a student’s entry term and intended location.


Graduate Admission with Required Preliminary Undergraduate Courses In some cases, graduate applicants may be required to take preliminary undergraduate courses prior to entering their graduate course of study. Graduate applicants who are assigned undergraduate preliminary courses prior to their graduate course of study must complete these undergraduate courses with a 3.0 or better. Once these courses are completed satisfactorily, these students are admitted as graduate students and are approved to proceed with the intended graduate course of study. Courses are assigned by the Admission Review Committee


on the basis of the student’s prior educational experience, level of achievement and the desired program of study. Students who seek to be exempted from any assigned preliminary course must provide documentation to the admission office that demonstrates mastery of skills and sufficient knowledge of content taught in the specific preliminary course. A student who is granted exemption does not receive credit for the course, but it is eliminated from the student’s preliminary course requirements.
