You’ve already taken care of business this summer with StART online—so now it’s time for the fun part! Fall Orientation is a mandatory two-day program that takes place in August just before classes begin. Orientation will help you adjust to college life and embark on the road to a profession in art and design. Orientation runs from the morning of Thursday, August 13 through Friday, August 14. There are some additional elective programs that will allow students to explore Cleveland on Saturday as well. All new students to CIA, including transfer students and non-traditional students, are encouraged to attend all parts of orientation.

Due to COVID-19, there is no formal program for parents and families.

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, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and a variety of physical disabilities. Making the appointments for these consultations will be available through the StART 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.
