Mobility Semester

Explore the culture of a new city and experience the learning styles of another school while maintaining strong ties to Cleveland Institute of Art. 

The college’s Mobility Semester gives students the opportunity to study for a semester at another school, which is affiliated with the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD). Mobility Semester offers a wide variety of learning environments at various schools throughout the U.S. and Canada. It gives you the opportunity to learn in a different environment and gain valuable new perspectives on their art. You also pay tuition to CIA, so all financial aid remains active.

Students who participate in the Mobility Semester have a renewed sense of enthusiasm that they incorporate into their work when they come back to CIA.

Eligibility

You are eligible for Mobility Semester if you are a full-time student, have completed one semester in your major, are in good academic standing, and have completed all foundation work.
