At this time, we plan to run the Pre-College program in 2021 with the health and safety measures that CIA put in place to reopen in August. The current measures include mandatory face masks inside the building; modified facilities and studio spaces to address social distancing; increased building sanitization and safety mechanisms; reduced classroom and lab capacities; and health monitoring including daily temperature checks and COVID-19 pre-screening assessments. We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and move forward with the program only if it is safe to do so. In the event that we need to cancel the program, students will receive a full refund.
Making a Payment
Any scholarship award given will be noted in the student’s acceptance letter and shown as a deduction from their tuition statement.
To make a payment:
- Log into my.cia.edu/pcs with the username and password found in the student acceptance letter.
- Click ‘My Account Balance’
- Click ‘Make a Payment’
- We recommend using the E-check option, which will ask for your bank account and routing number. This option has no authorization fee.
- Credit card payments will be charged a 2.95% authorization fee
Included in your balance will be a refundable $100 material and lab deposit, which covers damaged or lost equipment; and a refundable $150 housing deposit, if you will be staying on campus. All payments are refundable at the end of the program, barring any damages to the Residence Hall or to any classroom equipment. Refunds will be distributed by check to the student on the account.
