We welcome transfer students at Design Institute of San Diego and we will help you navigate through the transfer process as easily as possible. We believe in providing a personal and individualized transfer evaluation that will enable a smooth transition for the student to enter the curriculum at DISD.
Transfer applicants are asked to submit official high school transcripts as well as official transcripts from each college attended. A transfer evaluation can often be started utilizing copies of unofficial transcripts, so long as the official transcripts have been requested and are on their way. Final admission decisions, and the acceptance of transferring courses, will be based upon official transcripts.
Transfer students may be awarded transfer credit for those courses completed at an institution accredited by agencies recognized by the United States Department of Education which are similar in content and purpose to courses offered at Design Institute. The Director of Student Services and the Program Director or the Assistant Program Director will review all courses taken to determine transfer eligibility. Most course descriptions and college catalogs are available online; however we may ask that you provide us with more detailed information to expedite the transfer evaluation process. Depending on the class, the transferring student may also need to submit actual work to be evaluated by our Program Director.
We are pleased to accept up to 45 units in the interior design major and up to 36 units in general education taken at other accredited schools, if completed with a grade of "C" or better and if they relate to our degree requirements. At the discretion of our Program Director, additional units in the interior design major may be accepted for transfer.
