Student Achievement Data

The primary goal of the Seminole State Interior Design program is to prepare students to practice in the design industry. The baccalaureate pathway is a 2+2 program in which the student must complete an associate degree and have completed 60 credit hours of interior design coursework before admission into the Bachelor's of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree program. Once admitted to the B.A.S. program, a full-time student (12-15 credit hours per semester) can complete the program in four semesters. A part-time student (six-nine credit hours per semester) can complete the program in six semesters.

The following data are based on student information once admitted into the bachelor's degree program. The data were collected annually using institutional records, an alumni network through LinkedIn, and self-reporting from students.
