Scad Articulation Agreement
The dean of the Florida School of the Arts, Alain Hentschel, said that while students continue to apply for and must meet the academic requirements for SCAD, the agreement eliminates the evaluation of the course-by-course portfolio. «It makes the process of transmission and training a little less stressful,» Hentschel said, adding that the articulation agreement is the first in a series to follow the university. Other agreements with Flagler College and Marshall University are also under consideration. The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) recently signed a transfer agreement with Housatonic Community College (HCC) that paves the way for transmission to SCAD students. «We (SCAD) have a very limited number of signed joint transmission contracts, as it is rare that we find institutions with curricula that are aligned with our order and prepare students for the success of SCAD.» Kennedy said. «HCC has brought a number of students to SCAD in recent years, and they have been able to transfer many more credits than the average transfer student and have done well.» St. Johns River State College announces its latest articulation agreement (transfer) with its visual arts students. SJR State has added an additional university partnership that offers Florida School of the Arts students a lighter transition to selected programs at one of the most prestigious and innovative art schools in the country. The agreement offers graduate students from two florida School of the Arts programs, an easier transition to university. Students with a science degree in New Media Photography can move to the SCAD Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, while students with an A.S. degree in Visual Arts can move to the SCAD Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting.
