9. GRE scores. While not required of most applicants, submission of GRE scores is strongly encouraged for applicants to architectural history, art history, arts administration, cinema studies and postprofessional Master of Architecture degree programs. Performance on the GRE may assist in demonstrating adequate educational preparation and ability to succeed in academic coursework at the graduate level.


Applicants whose bachelor’s degrees are conferred by institutions that are not approved by the U.S. Department of Education and/or do not hold regional accreditation, or do not have appropriate specialized or programmatic accreditation, or have not been evaluated and proven comparable in course content and level of instruction to SCAD, or are not recognized by the ministry of education or equivalent agency in the applicant’s home country, are required to take the GRE and submit official scores to SCAD. 10. Additionally, if applicable, any other documents or materials required to obtain a student visa.****


11. Personal or telephone interview optional. (May be scheduled by contacting the admission department.)


Exceptions to the general rules of admission may be made for applicants of unusual motivation and ability. Application materials cannot be returned.


* SCAD uses the standards established by the National Association of Foreign Student Advisors and the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers to determine the equivalent academic achievement of a bachelor’s degree. Transcripts are evaluated to determine the conferment of bachelor’s degrees from institutions that are approved by the U.S. Department of Education and hold regional accreditation, or have appropriate specialized or programmatic accreditation, or have been evaluated and proven to have comparable course content and level of instruction to the Savannah College of Art and Design, or are recognized by the ministry of education or equivalent agency in the applicant’s home country. Course content is evaluated by comparing the curricula of other institutions with that of SCAD and assessing whether or not foundation studies, general education and major discipline courses are comparable to those offered at SCAD. Level of instruction is evaluated by comparing the percentage of faculty at other institutions who hold graduate and terminal degrees with the percentage of faculty at SCAD who hold graduate and terminal degrees. Applicants whose bachelor’s degrees are conferred by institutions that are not approved by the U.S. Department of Education and/or do not hold regional accreditation, or do not have appropriate specialized or programmatic accreditation, or have not been evaluated and proven comparable in course content and level of instruction to SCAD, or are not recognized by the ministry of education or equivalent agency in the applicant’s home country, are required to take the GRE and submit official scores to SCAD.


** English is the medium of instruction for all classes at SCAD. In addition to meeting or exceeding all other SCAD admission criteria, applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate English proficiency by providing official minimum scores on one of the following:


1. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) minimum scores: a. 550 on the paper-based test


b. 85 on the Internet-based test with minimum scores of 20 on each section.


2. International English Language Testing System (IELTS) minimum score of at least 6.5.


3. American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), “high advanced” score on the writing proficiency portion of the test and “advanced” score on the oral portion.


4. GRE minimum score of 500 on the verbal section. For applicants whose native language is English, or whose academic transcripts show extensive study in an institution in which English is the language of instruction, no additional proof of English proficiency is required. Students who meet the minimum required composite


score but do not meet the minimum section scores will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for possible exemption. All decisions are final. Applicants who meet or exceed all other SCAD admission requirements, but do not demonstrate English proficiency through minimum TOEFL, IELTS, ACTFL or SAT scores, may be admitted to the SCAD English as a Second Language (ESL) program. These students must take a SCAD English language proficiency test to be placed in the appropriate level of ESL. Students must satisfactorily complete the ESL program through Level IV prior to advancing into any academic course of study at SCAD and must continue taking ESL through satisfactory completion of Level VI. Students who score below 50 on the internet-based TOEFL; below 4.5 on the IELTS; or place at the intermediate low-, novice high-, mid- or low-proficiency levels on the ACTFL writing profiency test may consider admission into the online ESL program. **** Official certification of sources and funds. Copy of the first page of the applicant’s passport (requested, but not required). A copy of the first page of the passport for any dependent accompanying the student also is requested. These documents are used to verify correct spelling of names, correct birth dates, and other information vital to student registration.
