SCAD is postponing start of Fall 2017 classes due to hurricane Irma. Read the statement from SCAD below:
Due to the magnitude of the storm and the uncertainty of Hurricane Irma’s path, SCAD will postpone the start of classes for Savannah, Atlanta and eLearning for one week. It is our hope that delaying the start of fall quarter will not affect the quarter’s scheduled end on Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017.
Students and families should NOT plan to travel to the Savannah or Atlanta campuses at this time. New students will not be allowed to move in to residence halls before Thursday, Sept. 14. Returning students will not be allowed to move in before Saturday, Sept. 16. Only students who are already pre-approved and currently in transit, arriving before 5 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 6, may check in to their residence halls. We realize this change may inconvenience travel plans, however SCAD is focused on student safety.
SCAD Savannah and Atlanta campuses remain open at this time – staff and faculty should report to work as usual.
SCAD will continue to work with local, state and regional authorities to monitor the storm and prepare resources. More information on Hurricane Irma, including a safety and preparation checklist, can be found on the scad.edu homepage.
