Professional level programs accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) voluntarily place themselves before the scrutiny of the profession to ensure that students receive an education that will serve them not only during their time at school, but also prepare them for future professional growth. Students enrolled in an accredited interior design program can be confident that the program meets the quality standards recognized by the profession.
The list of accredited programs on this website supercedes all previously published lists. The list is updated twice a year following Accreditation Commission meetings at which accreditation decisions are made.
