New Student Orientation occurs during your first week on campus. Below are examples of what typical CIA orientation schedules for the New York campus look like. Please note that the last two days will center around your major. You are required to attend all sessions, which will begin promptly as scheduled.
Sessions for parents and family members will be held during the first two days. They are encouraged to attend but this is not a requirement.
A complete week-long orientation schedule, including accurate times and locations, will be posted on CIA Main Menu (the student portal) and e-mailed to you approximately two weeks prior to your arrival.
