ASSOCIATE IN APPLIED SCIENCE (AAS) IN INTERIOR DESIGN ONLINE The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Interior Design online provides the same rigorous education that we offer on campus, but with greater flexibility. NYSID instructors teach every course and the curriculum and learning goals are the same as the on-site courses. You can study on your own time and at your own pace—watch recorded lectures and demonstrations, participate in active discussions with fellow students and the instructor, and access handouts and assignments whenever it is convenient for you. Students matriculated in the on-site AAS (with the exception of international students) may take up to 26 credits in the online format; students matriculated in the online AAS may take up to 26 credits in on-site courses.
