Tuition Deposit

Admitted students, congratulations on your acceptance to the Cleveland Institute of Art! The next step is to submit your tuition deposit.

Submitting your non-refundable $350 tuition deposit does these important things:

  • Reserves your space in our rapidly filling entering class for this fall.
  • When combined with your housing deposit of $150, secures a place for you in CIA's Uptown Residence Hall. (Please note: Housing cannot be guaranteed to students who deposit after May 1.)

When you submit your tuition deposit, you will not only finally put the college decision process behind you, but you will also begin to receive important information about orientation, housing, and your fall course schedule.  

You can pay your tuition deposit online (preferred), by check, or by credit card over the phone (216.421.7418).

Once you deposit you will receive additional instructions regarding your next steps leading up to the first day of classes.
