Description

Dear Student and Family Member:

Congratulations on your acceptance to the Savannah College of Art and Design. The office of counseling and student support services invites all incoming first year and transfer students receiving services from our office and their parents or guardians to attend Jump Start, a unique expanded orientation in Savannah, before the general SCAD orientation begins.

Jump Start is designed to increase awareness of the services and resources available to students with accommodations, ease the transition to college and provide strategies for success at SCAD.

To attend, complete the registration form in the "ticket" area, submit payment, upload your ID photo to http://depts.scad.edu/scad-card/submit-your-photo, and upload documentation in SCAD Accommodate. We will send a confirmation email providing further instructions.

Attendance at the general orientation or summer swarm session is also highly recommended, since these sessions contain vital information not included in Jump Start.

SCAD is committed to equality of educational opportunities for qualified students with disabilities, in compliance with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the The Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008.

Topics addressed in the orientation include hands-on practice of the following:

  • Self-advocacy skills
  • Time Management
  • Graduation-to-career transition
  • Self-care strategies
  • Managing independence
  • Communication skills
  • Making social connections in a college setting
  • Safety and security strategies
  • Study and test prep skills
  • Assistive technology
  • Stress management
  • Campus navigation
  • Organizational skills
  • Building executive-function skills

The student program cost is US $1,275, including all meals, housing and entertainment from September 2-6, 2019, with move-in being the morning of the 2nd. The program cost per family member/guardian is US $275. Lodging for family members is not included. Please note the Family program is September 2-4, 2019.

Jump Start is intended to complement the general, university-wide orientation September 6-7, 2019. During this orientation, students and families alike will learn important information about university resources, services, policies and what to expect in your first quarter at SCAD. Parents and families are strongly encouraged to participate in the general orientation sessions.
