Admission to the Interior Design Program
Admissions Options to Fit Your Situation
I have not attended college before and want to become an interior designer.
You will find the College staff and the Interior Design Department faculty very welcoming and helpful from your first class to your last. Our Interior Design Orientation course provides you with approximately thirty speakers – most of whom are alumnae – talking about their employment and “nuggets of wisdom”. This course helps you decide if interior design is right for you while providing an overview of interior design including professional organizations and licensing.
I have a bachelor’s degree in a field other than interior design and want to become an interior designer.
Your liberal arts credits will be assessed by an admission counselor and/or the Registrar. The interior design faculty will go through any other courses you might have which apply to our major. The remaining credits will become electives. You will take our interior design major courses and complete the liberal arts which will probably take you three years plus two credits in your final semester. If you have your art courses completed it will take less time. It is possible to work full time or out of state in the semester with the two credits.
I have a two year associate’s degree and wish to earn a four year bachelor’s degree with an interior design major.
You will have to meet the requirements of the College liberal arts as well as most interior design classes. Your work from foundation courses will be assessed on an individual basis as to whether they will transfer. As the interior design courses become more involved, we do not transfer them due to our Council for Interior Design Accreditation. Foundation courses are Basic Drawing, Basic Design, Color, Textiles, Architectural Drafting, Art History, History of Interiors and Architecture.
