Virtual Accepted Student Day

  • Virtual Accepted Student Day for Our New York Campus

    We wish you were here—and we hope to announce new visit opportunities soon—but until then, we’ve created a number of on-demand presentations to help you learn more about the opportunities and support services available to CIA students.

    We hope these videos answer all your questions—but if they don’t, we’re here and we’d love to hear from you! Our professional admissions team is working from home and (like you) are starved for contact from the outside world. They’d love to get a call or e-mail from you. Find your counselor here. And check out our Accepted Students page to see what you should do next.
