What is the CAT-Yorkville Pathway?

If you complete the entire pathway you will have the opportunity to earn a BID – a program that will open new doors to industry certification as a Registered Interior Designer (RID). 

Who Qualifies for the CAT-Yorkville Pathway?

CAT students who have graduated from the Advanced Diploma in Interior Design and Technology (AIDT).


Section 1 – CAT Program

You are focused on the interior design industry and have a career path in mind. You have checked all the necessary admission requirements and have all your supporting documents in order. You are ready to enroll CAT’s qualifying advanced diploma program. Upon completion of one the qualifying program, you may choose to enter the workforce directly or pursue further education at Yorkville University.  

Section 2 – Yorkville Bachelor’s

CAT AIDT alumni are awarded 72 credits for their advanced diploma, leaving just 36 credits to earn at Yorkville to complete their Bachelor of Interior Design.  Yorkville is the only online program in Canada to be CIDA-accredited without a residency component.
