    Accepted Students


    All students accepted by The Culinary Institute of America are assigned a Student Financial Planner who will follow them throughout their degree program to answer any questions about financial aid, billings, loans, and scholarships. To find out who your planner is, simply visit your financial self-service page, accessed through the student portal. Once you are on your Financial Aid Checklist page, you can see your Student Financial Planner at the bottom of the checklist.
