Transfer Information: Taking interior design courses is a progressive process, learning fundamentals first and concluding with a senior capstone project.  Course must be taken consecutively, through a minimum of six long term semesters, to remain on track in the program. Students who plan to transfer should seriously review the course equivalencies as they enroll in courses at their previous institution to ensure credits will transfer. Students may also seek advisement recommendations through the Student Advising and Mentoring (SAM) Center.

Student Projects Policy:  The interior design program reserves the right to keep, display, and reproduce design projects and assignments submitted by students.  Graded projects and assignments are the property of the department.
