About DISD

Typically, in order to study interior design, you have to enroll at a fine arts school. At Design Institute of San Diego, you have the benefit of a school with academics devoted exclusively to interior design. The institute’s only program is a BFA in Interior Design, and it keeps its enrollment around 500, so you’ll receive individualized instruction in an intimate learning environment.

The BFA Interior Design program consists mainly of design courses. General education courses comprise just a quarter of the curriculum, giving you plenty of time to develop your skill and creativity as a designer.

If you study full-time for two semesters per year, you can complete the program in four years. However, if you want to earn your degree sooner, the institute offers Fast Track scheduling that allows you to study year-round.

In addition to the admissions application, the Design Institute of San Diego requires official high school transcripts, two professional references and a personal information form. You’ll have to participate in an initial admissions interview before you apply, then a follow-up to discuss your application.

Students who are enrolled full-time at Design Institute of San Diego may be eligible for financial aid. California grants and federal Title IV programs can help you with tuition, and some external scholarships may also be available.
