If you are a . citizen or eligible noncitizen, we encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which can be found on the Web at . The FAFSA is available each year on October 1. You do not need to wait for an admission decision to apply for federal aid; we recommend submitting by our FAFSA priority deadline of February 1 for fall applicants. (The New School’s federal school code is 002780.)
Advanced courses in an interior designer degree program will include more technical subjects, such as computer-aided drafting (CAD) or other software used for visualization. A comprehensive interior designer degree will also include coursework that directly prepares you for the field, including an introduction to professional etiquette, business structures in the design world, and common practices for working with clients and colleagues. A course in visualization and presentation will help students learn to communicate their ideas, or a course about professional practice will discuss different career specializations in the field, professional associations and networks, ethics and standards, and contractual obligations.
