You’ve come to the right place to get the best education available. The CIA offers one-of-a-kind experiences and opportunities for students interested in the food industry. Transferring your credits to get your CIA degree is easier than you think—and may even save you money!
There are three ways you can learn if your college credits can be used toward a CIA degree:
Applicable transfer credits may include those for specific majors as well as exam results, work experience, military courses, and life achievement courses.
Due to the highly specialized nature of the CIA’s culinary education, only business management and liberal arts courses will be considered for transfer credit approval. We do not accept transfer credits for culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, or hospitality and service management (restaurant) courses.
To review our full transfer credit policy, visit the CIA’s online Academic Catalog at catalog.ciachef.edu.
The CIA has articulation agreements that facilitate the transfer process with other educational organizations, including high schools and national student organizations, as well as Orange County Community College and Rockland Community College in New York. A complete list of our articulation agreement partners can be found online. (PDF)
