Interior Design

Freshman and transfer students admitted to Auburn University, as well as internal transfer students from within Auburn University, who desire to major in Interior Design, College of Human Sciences, will be admitted to Pre-Interior Design (INDX). The Pre-Interior Design students must complete the first year of Pre-Interior Design course work; i.e., CADS 1000 and CADS 1100 with a grade of “C” or better in order to be evaluated for possible admission into the Interior Design curriculum. Admission into the Interior Design program (sophomore-senior levels) is limited with a maximum class size of 40 students per year. Admission will be based upon a portfolio review by the Interior Design faculty of the work completed in the Pre-Interior Design course work. Most course work in the major must be taken in sequence; transfer students should anticipate that additional semesters of study may be required to complete the program. Students in INDS must earn a grade of a C or higher in all prerequisite courses in the major before being allowed to proceed to the next course in the sequence. Major courses include the Human Sciences College core courses and all required Consumer and Design Sciences courses that are indicated in bold print in the model.
