Orientation

At the Cleveland Institute of Art, we provide summer and fall orientation programs, as well as a workshop for those with learning disabilities, to teach our incoming students about the wide range of resources available to them on campus.

Summer Orientation (StART)

Student Advising, Registration, and Testing, or StART, is CIA's mandatory, online summer orientation. Using myCIA, students are able to watch videos and download information, as well as, complete tasks that school officials need prior to them arriving on campus. New students who are attending CIA in the fall will begin to receive information about StART online in June and then throughout the summer.

Disability Services Registration

The Disability Services Office offers individual consultation sessions for students with documented learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or mental health disorders. These can include, but are not limited to, dyslexia, A.D.H.D., Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, eating disorders, and a variety of physical disabilities. Making the appointments for these consultations will be available through the St.A.R.T program in the summer.

During your individual session, you and your parents meet the Disability Services staff who will review your disability and establish accommodations and services specific to the unique demands of the CIA student experience.

Fall Orientation

Fall Orientation is a mandatory three-day program that occurs shortly after students move on campus in August. Students will learn more about their classmates, gain an understanding of faculty expectations, familiarize themselves with our campus and University Circle, and discover how to be a successful student at CIA.
