The electric dipole transition probabilities and the oscillator strengths of neutral scandium have been calculated using the quantum defect orbital theory and the Cowan code for the 3d4s(2)-3d4s4p, 3d(2)4s-3d(2)4p, and 3d4s(2)-4s(2)4p transitions. In addition, a parametric analysis of the fine structure for the 3d4s(2) configuration of even parity is performed using Cowan code. The transition probabilities and the oscillator strengths obtained in this work are mostly in agreement with the data obtained from different theoretical works given in the literature. Moreover, transition probabilities for 24 levels of neutral scandium are given for the first time.
