Service Charge Policy

A key component of the education process at the CIA is learning how to deliver outstanding service. As an enrolled student in a restaurant class or as a student worker in a restaurant at The Culinary Institute of America, students are not permitted to accept tips. This is in accordance with IRS regulations and the CIA Student Code of Conduct (Section 19). If students are registered for a restaurant class and are found to be taking a tip in that class, students will fail the class. If students are an employed student working in a restaurant and are found to be taking a tip, they will lose their privilege to work on campus for the remainder of their stay at the college. The CIA's adherence of this no-tipping policy as a campus-wide directive allows for the best possible customer service at all times.

In light of this policy, and to keep the student experience focused on education, the CIA has included a 20% service charge on each restaurant check. All monies from the service charge are returned to students through scholarships, support of student activities, and the purchase of graduation jackets.
