Recently I wrote an opinion piece for SCAD Myriad. A family matter happened during the early part of the "supposed to be last" quarter. Unfortunately SCAD does not have a real policy for those who do go through a Family Emergency. Thankfully two of my professors were understanding and gave me time to catch up. The other professor was not as understanding, so now I am in my "supposed to be last quarter" again. Only two classes (I am quite spoiled by just two classes now). Oh and while I only need one class, taking two classes is better financially.
SCAD is a great school, it like any other place just needs to improve in some policies that it lacks.
