Your ROI in going to SCAD will probably be very small, perhaps a negative. If you need to take a loan for your $37.5 out of pocket costs, almost definitely a negative. The local option may pay dividends if you major in photography but the better option is, as others have said, a business major and photography minor.
That said, a future in commercial photography is likely to be financially disappointing in the long term unless you are naturally particularly business-savvy.
But if you can get free education, regardless of your major, go for it. Expand your horizons. Good luck.
