Other Fees

Each student is required to submit a $100 material and lab deposit (not included in the above tuition), which covers any lost or damaged equipment during the program. In addition, residential students must submit a $150 housing deposit (not included in the above tuition) to cover any damages to their room or other residence hall property. Both deposits are refundable at the end of the program, barring any damages.

Tuition Deadline

Full tuition for all accepted students must be received by June 14, 2019.

Scholarships

A limited number of need-based scholarships are available ranging from $250-$1,000. To apply for a scholarship students must submit a short personal statement (500 words max) and a 2018 income tax return of the parent(s) or guardian(s) who claim them as a dependent as well as the parent’s (or guardian’s) spouse’s tax return (if applicable). Scholarships are independent of the FAFSA application and process, and are based on merit and financial need demonstrated by the family’s 2018 tax return.

Note: If your 2018 tax return is not available at the time you begin your application, you have the option to save your application and upload that document at a later date. The 2018 tax return can also be emailed directly to precollege@cia.edu.

Graffiti HeArt will be working with CIA to provide Pre-College scholarships, which will be awarded based on a review of portfolios and a determination of both merit and need. With the mission, “To Inspire Health and Art in the Community,” the local nonprofit focuses on promoting graffiti art and artists through community revitalization projects, funding art education and scholarships for underserved youth in our communities. More information on Graffiti HeArt can be found at graffitiheart.org.

For questions regarding financial aid, contact precollege@cia.edu.
