Admissions . Apply
At Cleveland Institute of Art we believe very strongly in providing a personal approach at this most important time of your life.
We encourage you to contact us early in your college search so we can help you prepare the best possible application. Our admissions counselors will answer any questions you have and confirm whether your application and portfolio meet our submission requirements.
Make sure to visit us! We welcome the opportunity to meet you and review your portfolio in person. When you visit, you can tour our campus, meet our faculty artists, and see our students at work in their own studio spaces.
When you are ready to apply, start your online application here.
A complete CIA application is much more than the online form—it also includes transcripts, your portfolio, and more. Make sure to review the relevant pages below for important details. Then start your online application!
Completing your application by March 2 ensures consideration for all scholarships and grants offered by CIA, and allows you to learn about your admissions decision and potential financial aid as early as possible.
In addition, if you submit your online application between now and January 31, 2015, you do not need to pay the $40 application fee.
