FAQ: Finances

What is happening with scholarships?

June 8, 2020: All scholarships are being processed in collaboration with the offices of Financial Aid, Academic Affairs and faculty. There was no formal application process for students.

We anticipate sending notifications to student recipients by the end of June, which will include all major department and open scholarships/awards.

I'm a senior. Can I get my fee for graduation ceremonies refunded?

The spring 2020 graduation fee of $215 has been reversed on the billing statement for seniors who were originally charged in January.

For those students with a zero balance due, CIA is processing a direct deposit to the bank account you have on file with the Business Office. If you did not sign up for direct deposit, your graduation fee will be issued in the form of a paper check mailed to your permanent address on record. 

For those students with a balance due, the $215 graduation fee has been applied as a credit against your account.

Will I receive a refund for housing or tuition?

March 23, 2020: The College continues to work on details related to the prorated return of other fees, including housing, campus meal plans and facilities. This involves researching federal and state regulations regarding the impact of refunded fees on the cost of attendance used for federal, state and private grants and loans, as these sources of aid have many regulations. We will communicate more about these arrangements on or before April 15, 2020.

March 13, 2020: At this time, the semester is still in session and our focus is on enabling students to complete their courses while we do what we can to preserve the health of the CIA community and the community at large.
