About IDI

If you’re looking for an interior design school in the heart of Southern California that’ll provide you with the resources to begin your career, you should consider the Interior Designers Institute in Orange County, California.

The academics offered at the school consist of associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s of art degrees in Interior Design as well as certificate programs, but that’s not all the education you’ll receive. You’ll have the opportunity to go on field trips to leading design centers and manufacturer showrooms and hear lectures by guest speakers.

Degree-seeking students receive job placement assistance, while B.A. students participate in an internship program with a professional design firm while studying. All students have the opportunity to work with leading interior designers by participating in showcase houses sponsored by professional design organizations.

Courses are flexible, with classes conducted during the day and in the evening. Most of the course content is computer-aided design and drafting, formulated especially to an interior designer. Students will work on simulated class projects, like retail stores, offices and hospitals.

Students interested in applying may register online through the school’s admissions web page.

Tuition is a flat rate for residents both in and out of state. Financial aid through student loans and grants is available to eligible students who file a FAFSA.

Overall Rating

I'm really glad that I got by BA from a CIDA accredited school. IDI is great! Students complete an internship in the BA program so that we all leave with having actual experience on our resumes. In the AA program you learn all about residential and all the different types of commercial design. The best part is that they have job opportunities while in school and after you graduate. There are freelance job listings as well as positions available at design firms. Most BA and MA grads go on to work for the top design firms in the world or start their own firm. It's really nice to go to a school where everyone is there for the same reason. To impact people in positive way with Interior Design.
