Accepted Student Day

    New York Campus

  • Join Us for Accepted Student Day at the CIA

    Once you’ve been accepted to the CIA, the next step is Accepted Student Day!

    It’s a great—and fun—way to get a taste of life at the college, become more familiar with the campus, and find more about what awaits you when you become an official CIA student.

    We have accepted you, now let us welcome you! This is an event you do not want to miss—or you might face serious FOMO.

    Choose from four Accepted Student Days where you can:

    • Meet your future classmates. (Some students even meet their future roommate here!)
    • Get the inside scoop from current CIA students.
    • Talk to your CIA success team—including faculty members, advisors, club leaders and RAs.
    • Experience a tasting reception like no other, CIA style.
    • Tour campus and even get a sneak peek at a CIA dorm room!
    • Enjoy a special appearance by a CIA graduate! (Major social media content for you foodies, just sayin!)

    Parents and guardians are invited too! Participate in a customized session just for you.
