@spcollins "Please note that SCAD is accredited by SACS, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (http://www.sacs.org/). This is the same organization that accredits Emory, Georgia Tech, Agnes Scott, Vanderbilt University, University of Virginia, Richmond University and fellow art school Ringling School of Art and Design among many others."
Thats great and all but this is an art school not a regular university. They should be accredited by the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design or at least the National Association of Schools of Art and Design !!! Its an art school, and a very expensive one. Where majority of the kids who enroll end up dropping out or failing out after their first year. But most transferring because they cant afford to even go here anymore. SCAD just needs to get their priorities straight. I feel horrible for the three athletic teams that they just cut this year for a stupid reason. They broke a lot of promises and destroyed a lot of young kids dreams. Yes they're still giving them their scholarships but these kids came here so they could follow their passion for art AND passion for sports. I feel even worse for the freshman they just signed to those sports this year. Came to the school of their dreams and all excited to play 4 years of a college sport then after their first semester its cut?! Talk about a load of BULL****!! SCAD is going downhill, fast.
