The interior design program leading to the Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture is accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation

206 Grandville Avenue,
Suite 350, Grand Rapids, MI, 49503

The Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Architecture at Oklahoma Christian University does not allow for a student to sit for the NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Board) exam.

The CIDA-accredited program prepares students for entry-level interior design practice, for advanced study, and to apply for membership in professional interior design organizations. The Bachelors of Fine Arts granted by Oklahoma Christian Univeristy meets the educational requirement for eligibility to sit for the National Council for Interior Design Qualification Examination (NCIDQ Exam).
