Privacy of Application Records

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, the CIA does not release confidential academic and personal information, except under conditions permitted by law, without a student's written permission.

Applicants to the CIA who are not yet enrolled and in attendance may not waive the confidentiality of their records. This means applicants may not inspect, review, or photocopy any material submitted to the college for consideration, including letters of reference, official transcripts, employment evaluations, and interview and test results, until after they are accepted and enrolled at the CIA. At that time, students will have access to the material in the permanent file in accordance with stated policy, copies of which are available in the Registrar's Office.

The CIA does not return any materials sent as part of the admission review process. Applicants should not submit original diplomas and certificates, as they will not be returned.
