Admission

Student work review

Departmental application is not required for admission to TCU. However, we strongly encourage applicants to take advantage of the optional portfolio upload as part of the TCU general admission application process. The portfolio can help identify highly talented individuals ahead of time and can positively influence the admission offer.

Interior Design Transfer Admission Policy

After they have been accepted to the University, students wishing to transfer credits from another Interior Design program to TCU’s Interior Design program must submit a comprehensive portfolio including all syllabi, project/assignment descriptions from their previous institution, and studio project work to the attention of the Interior Design Program Coordinator. Once the materials are provided to the department they will be reviewed and assessed by interior design faculty. All transfer decisions are final.
