Deciding what career you would like to pursue and selecting a college to attend are big decisions. Many factors impact your decision — mobility, affordability, personal preference, etc. Students naturally want to select the most promising educational program available to them. Selecting an interior design program that is CIDA accredited is a good start. CIDA employs a thorough review process for programs using quality standards established by the profession for entry-level education. CIDA’s accreditation process is thorough and focused solely on interior design programs that culminate in a professional-level degree. Interior design programs that voluntarily undertake the CIDA accreditation process demonstrate a strong commitment to quality and continual improvement.
