Orientation

At the Cleveland Institute of Art, we provide summer and fall orientation programs, as well as a workshop for those with learning disabilities, to teach our incoming students about the wide range of resources available to them on campus.

Summer Orientation (StART)

Student Advising, Registration, and Testing, or StART, is CIA's mandatory, online summer orientation. Using myCIA, students are able to watch videos and download information, as well as, complete tasks that school officials need prior to them arriving on campus. New students who are attending CIA in the fall will begin to receive information about StART online in May and then throughout the summer.

Learning Disability Orientation

As part of New Student Orientation in August, the Office of Learning Support Services provides a workshop for students with documented learning disabilities (e.g., ADD, ADHD, and dyslexia) to learn about helpful services on campus to meet their unique needs. Learn more about the Learning Disability Workshop.

Fall Orientation

Fall Orientation is a mandatory three-day program that occurs shortly after students move on campus in August. Students will learn more about their classmates, gain an understanding of faculty expectations, familiarize themselves with our campus and University Circle, and discover how to be a successful student at CIA.
