Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD)

In collaboration with Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) the IB Career-related Programme (CP) has created a joint enrollment package geared to students who wish to pursue a degree in Art & Design.

Students who complete the Career-related Programme earn the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme Certificate.

SCAD courses taken to fulfill the career-related studies requirement within the CP will give students the option to progress to higher education with at or above 25 hours of university-level credit already on their transcripts.

SCAD courses can be used as the career-related study component portion of the CP as long as these three requirements are met:

  1. Students must take at least two IB academic courses
  2. Students must complete the CP core
  3. Students must complete the approved career programme from SCAD
  4. Students must meet or exceed SCAD's normal undergraduate admission requirements

Available: Globally, either online through SCAD or by attending one of the two degree-seeking campuses: SCAD Atlanta or SCAD Savannah. SCAD may award reduced tuition and/or scholarship opportunities to CP students meeting the necessary requirements.
