We welcome and assist numerous 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 and easy transition for you to follow your passion and begin as a student at DISD.
We Provide You with a Free Transfer Evaluation
A transfer evaluation will determine what previous college credit you have that will transfer into our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design degree program. DISD will 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.
Have You Earned a Previous Degree From an Accredited Institution?
DISD will consider your general education courses fulfilled unless the degree is lacking in areas that support the interior design major.
Each semester, DISD offers a one-time grant for students transferring in credits from another accredited institution. Learn more about our Interior Design Transfer Grant today.
Here is How to Get Started
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.
The Director of Student Services and the 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.
