CAREER OPPORTUNITIES An education from The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) offers you unparalleled career opportunity in an industry that generates an estimated $632 billion in annual sales in the United States. In 2012, 12.9 million people are projected to be employed in the foodservice business, making it one of the largest private-sector employers, according to the National Restaurant Association. The CIA is represented around the world by more than 44,000 alumni who achieve success across a wide range of careers. They become executive chefs, personal chefs, restaurant and business owners, media personalities, restaurant and hotel chain executives, food writers, research chefs, food and beverage executives, and culinary educators and work in all segments of the foodservice and hospitality industry. Some CIA AOS degree program graduates enter the industry as entry-level cooks and pastry cooks for restaurants, hotels, country clubs, retail bakeries, and institutions; others choose jobs in dining room service, catering, food research, or kitchen supervision. Still others choose to enroll in the college’s bachelor’s degree programs in Hyde Park, NY to expand their employment possibilities to include business management and staff management positions, as well as business ownership, communications, marketing, sales, and more.
Graduates of the Accelerated Culinary Arts Certificate Program gain hands-on culinary skill and knowledge to complement their bachelor’s degree in hospitality management, food science, nutrition, or a closely related field. The program prepares them for a multitude of opportunities such as cook, research assistant, restaurant assistant manager, and other entry-level positions. Accelerated Wine and Beverage Certificate Program graduates can pursue such positions as entry-level food and beverage manager, retail wine and beverage buyer, specialty tasting room associate, or wine steward in fine dining and multi-unit restaurants. With experience, they can become a wine and beverage sales representative in wholesale distribution, work as a beverage director in fine dining, or take on other positions within the food, beverage, and winery segments.
HISTORY The college has enjoyed a unique history characterized by rapid expansion in its more than 65 years of service. The Culinary Institute of America opened in 1946 as the New Haven Restaurant Institute, a small cooking school in downtown New Haven, CT, with an enrollment of 50 students and a faculty consisting of a chef, a baker, and a dietitian. The Institute, at that time a vocational school for World War II veterans, offered a 16-week program featuring instruction in 78 popular menus of the day. Members of the New Haven Restaurant Association sponsored the original school, whose founders, Frances Roth and Katharine Angell, served as its first director and chair of the board, respectively. As the foodservice industry grew, so did enrollment, necessitating a move in 1947 to larger quarters: a 40-room mansion adjacent General Information | 7
to Yale University. The school’s name was changed to the Restaurant Institute of Connecticut; in 1951 it became known as The Culinary Institute of America, reflecting the diversity of the student population. The educational program was expanded to two years, and continuing education courses for industry professionals were introduced. By the time of Mrs. Roth’s retirement in 1965, the school had increased its enrollment to 400 students and operated a $2 million facility. In 1969, with more than 1,000 students and with facilities strained to the maximum, the school’s administrators launched a search for a new home. They found it in St. Andrewon-Hudson, a former Jesuit novitiate in Hyde Park, NY. Two years later, the new school opened, with its main building renamed Roth Hall. In 1995, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone (a branch of the CIA, Hyde Park, NY), opened its doors to food and wine professionals as the college’s continuing education campus in the heart of California’s Napa Valley. The Accelerated Culinary Arts Certificate Program was added in 2002 for students with a bachelor’s degree in hospitality, food science, nutrition, or a closely related field. In fall 2006, the Associate in Occupational Studies (AOS) in culinary arts degree program offered in Hyde Park became available at the Greystone campus in St. Helena. This enabled students to obtain the worldfamous CIA culinary degree program education on the West Coast as well as prepare them, if they elected to do so, to enroll in the junior year of the CIA’s bachelor’s degree program at the Hyde Park campus. In 2008, the college opened its second branch campus, The Culinary Institute of America, San Antonio. Today, the Texas 8 | General Information
campus offers the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in culinary arts degree program and a certificate program in Latin cuisines, as well as programs for foodservice industry professionals and food enthusiasts. The CIA at Greystone continued to expand its educational offerings to support the growing industry demand for qualified bakers and pastry chefs by offering the AOS in baking and pastry arts degree program beginning in fall 2009. AOS baking and pastry students at Greystone follow the same proven curriculum offered at the main campus in Hyde Park, NY, while experiencing the diversity of California’s Napa Valley. Introduced in 2010, the Accelerated Wine and Beverage Certificate Program gives students the knowledge, foundation skills, and deep understanding of this specialized industry segment they need to advance through the ranks in hospitality and food and beverage management. Also in 2010, in partnership with the Singapore Institute of Technology, the CIA opened its Singapore location on the campus of Temasek Polytechnic. The CIA Singapore offers the college’s bachelor of professional studies degree program in culinary arts management to graduates of polytechnic institutions who have earned their diplomas in hospitality & tourism management, leisure and resort management, or culinary and catering management, as well as to other diploma program graduates. The CIA at Greystone currently enrolls approximately 200 students in its four credit programs, along with approximately 2,300 students in its professional development courses.

STUDENT LIFE AND SERVICES To promote individual well-being, growth, leadership, and participation among its students, the CIA at Greystone offers a variety of services. Our Napa Valley campus provides an ideal setting for living and learning, with the staff and facilities you need to succeed.
RESIDENCE HALLS The college maintains residential facilities that provide housing for approximately 130 students, both on campus in the Guest House, and at the Vineyard Lodge Housing Center. Vineyard Lodge II, one of two residence halls at the Center, holds LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, offering students the chance to live in—and learn from living in—an environmentally conscious facility. Occupancy in all residence halls is either single or double rooms with private or shared bath. Residential housing is a privilege, and students are expected to adhere to college behavioral standards and be cooperative members of the residential community. Once accepted to the CIA, students interested in housing must submit an application, available online at www.ciachef.edu. Oncampus housing is guaranteed for all incoming first-semester students. The pricing of campus housing for each semester varies with the type of accommodation, but includes all utilities (including air conditioning), cable TV access, limited local phone service, and hardwire and wireless Internet connections. Amenities also include coin-operated laundry and a common area. There are no security deposits required. All rooms are furnished with a desk, chair, dresser, wardrobe or closet, television, and bed for each student. Each room will have linen and limited housekeeping service provided on a regular basis. All residence halls
are non-smoking facilities. Additional amenities include a fitness room in Vineyard Lodge II, and a kitchen for student use and an outdoor patio with grilling area at the Vineyard Lodge. Resident assistants reside in all three housing facilities to provide supervision, guidance, and activities for residential students. Fulltime security is provided by the Office of Safety and Security. Students interested in off-campus housing should contact the student affairs manager at 707-967-2420 for a listing of current rentals. The CIA offers this listing only as an information service to incoming students and therefore cannot be responsible for rental conditions and negotiations with landlords.
PERSONAL COUNSELING AND MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES Personal difficulties and emotional stress can affect your quality of life and ability to learn. Speaking with a trained, objective professional can increase self-awareness and help you build better coping strategies. If you are already under the care of a psychiatrist and/or therapist, you may want to transfer your care to local resources in order to have appropriate support during your time at school. Check with your insurance provider for a list of therapists and psychiatrists in Napa County who accept your insurance. Students without insurance should consider purchasing coverage. One option is to purchase additional coverage through the CIA’s Student Life and Services | 15
Student Accident and Health Insurance Program, offered through Commercial Travelers Mutual Insurance Company. On a limited basis, a licensed therapist can arrange to meet with you, on campus, to discuss your counseling needs. Call 707-9672443 and leave a confidential voicemail message with your name and a phone number where you can be reached. Also, the student affairs manager can assist you with local referrals to therapists. If you experience a mental health crisis, Napa County Mental Health can be reached at 707-253-4711, 24 hours a day. You may also be seen for an emergency evaluation at nearby St. Helena Hospital.

Enables interested students to design and execute their own menu to be served to a limited number of fellow students at Greystone, under the guidance of a faculty advisor. Sage Thymes
Greystoneâ€™s student newsletter, published periodically. The Sage Thymes covers a wide variety of topics, from food trends and campus happenings to world cuisines and chef profiles. Wine Club
Provides students with the chance to learn about a variety of wine topics and participate in varietal tastings, regional tastings, and vertical tastings, as well as wine and food pairings. (Participants must be at least 21 years of age.)
LEARNING STRATEGIES The CIA, through the Learning Strategies Centers (LSC) at the Hyde Park, NY and St. Helena, CA campuses, provide degree and certificate program students at Grey-
stone with opportunities to enhance their skills and develop study strategies for success. Located in the Margie Schubert Library in Room 306 of the Greystone main building, the LSC offers a wide array of services, including tutoring, disability services, and mentoring programs, and are available at no charge.
Tutoring Services Students who are interested in obtaining extra help through tutoring services should contact the Learning Strategies Center administrator, who will make arrangements for a peer tutor. A peer tutor is a student who has successfully completed the course and has demonstrated proficiency in that class. Peer tutors can provide one-on-one tutoring to support and assist students in their classes at no additional charge to the student. In addition, advice on time management, learning styles, note taking, test-taking strategies, and organization is also available through the Learning Strategies Center administrator. Disability Services The college provides support services for students with disabling conditions. The Learning Strategies Center (LSC) at the Hyde Park, NY campus will assist qualified students in attaining reasonable accommodations and support services. Our disability support specialists are available to discuss students’ specific needs in the classroom, kitchen, and residence hall. Reasonable accommodations may include readers, notetakers, priority seating, enlargement of notes, tape recording a lecture, books on CD, interpreters, testing accommodations, assistance with lifting, priority registration, or residence hall accommodations, depending on the stu-
dent’s documentation and specific functional limitations. After reviewing the documentation and interviewing the student, a disability support specialist will determine and recommend appropriate accommodations for each student’s course of study. The recommended accommodations will be communicated to the student and, with his or her consent, to the Learning Strategies Center administrator and the proper personnel at Greystone in order to best assist the student. Accommodations for students with disabilities are based on individual needs and functional limitations. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate a request for services and remain involved as a committed learner who has taken charge of his/her own needs. Due to confidentiality laws governing institutions of higher education, students must disclose their disability and request accommodations from each instructor and/or other staff members and departments themselves. Students with disabling conditions need to request accommodations for every class, quiz, midterm, or final exam as well as for their costing exam and externship. Accommodations are not provided retroactively. Students should notify instructors of their disability and need for accommodations during the first week of class. The instructor is responsible for providing academic accommodations in the classroom. To obtain services, students are required to provide the LSC with recent professional documentation of their disability. All documentation needs to be sent to the Learning Strategies Center at The Culinary Institute of America, 1946 Campus Drive, Hyde Park, NY 12538-1499. The documentation must be provided on the practitioner’s letterhead (not on a prescription form), and Student Life and Services | 17
dated and signed by the physician or psychologist. The practitioner cannot be a family member. This information will be kept confidential and must be received at least one month prior to their start date. Should students decide to disclose their disability once on campus, they must submit current professional documentation to the Learning Strategies Center to receive accommodations. Students must be registered with the LSC in order to receive accommodations. Learning disability documentation or ADHD documentation should not be older than three years, except where appropriate documentation is provided by a professional indicating that new testing would not be required, given the individual circumstances. Students with outdated documentation may receive accommodations while actively obtaining new documentation. Provisional accommodations are given for two months while the student is obtaining new documentation. If updated documentation is not submitted within that time frame, the provisional accommodations are discontinued. For additional information, call 845-451-1219 to speak with a disability specialist. A qualified student with a disability is one who: • Identifies himself or herself to the Learning Strategies Center administrator at Greystone or to one of the disability support specialists at the Hyde Park campus in a timely manner. • Provides the college with comprehensive, current, professional documentation of a disability. • Provides documentation that clearly indicates the student’s functional limitations and the need for reasonable academic adjustments, auxiliary aids, or services. • Needs those adjustments, auxiliary aids, or services to participate in and/or benefit from the college’s programs and activities. 18 | Student Life and Services
• Is able to benefit from the adjustments, auxiliary aids, or services. • Can meet the academic and technical standards set out by the CIA.
Housing Accommodations Policy and Procedures In compliance with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended, students with documented disabilities may request special housing accommodations within the context of current housing policies. For the procedures to request housing accommodations, please contact the disability support specialist at the Hyde Park, NY campus at 845-451-1219 or 845-451-1288. Testing Accommodations Some students with disabilities need alternative testing accommodations. Examples of these include, but are not limited to, test content read to them, tests written in large print, extra time on tests, assistance in filling out Scantron® sheets, and tests taken in a less-distracting environment. If a student needs to take an exam in a location outside the classroom, the student needs to schedule it with the LSC administrator at least 48 hours prior to the day of the test. If the appointment is not made within 48 hours of the test date, the student may not receive accommodations for that test. Appointments for alternative tests are made around the actual time the class is taking the test, or at a time that does not conflict with the student’s class schedule. Once the student makes an appointment to take a test with the LSC administrator, the instructor will receive an e-mail with the date and time of the test. The instructor is then responsible for delivering the
exam to the LSC administrator prior to the scheduled test and picking up the completed test.
Course Substitutions and Waivers There are no course waivers granted on the basis of disability at the CIA. Additionally, the CIA does not modify course content or requirements. A petition requesting a course substitution is an option for students. According to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, colleges have the right to deem which courses are essential to their curricula. Students may submit a petition for a course substitution; however, if the course is deemed to be essential to the program, the request will be denied. Documentation Requirements The following are requirements for submitting documentation requesting disability services at the CIA: • Learning Disabilities or ADD/ADHD—docu-
mentation must be less than three years old from the date the student requests services from the CIA. Additionally, the psychoeducational evaluation must be based on an adult test format such as the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and the Woodcock-Johnson Achievement Test. • Psychiatric Disabilities—documentation
must be less than a year old from the date the student requests services from the CIA. This documentation must be updated annually. • Rehabilitated Drug Addiction/Alcoholism—
documentation must be less than a year old from the date the student requests services from the CIA. • Hearing Impairments—an audiogram
administered by a licensed audiologist and any additional medical documentation must be less than three years old from the date the student requests services from the CIA. Information regarding the functional limitations should be included.
• Medical and/or Physical Disabilities—docu-

Should unforeseen functional limitations arise that require an accommodation, an additional evaluation may be required for a medical, emotional, learning, or physical condition, whether preexisting or developing after enrollment. Contact the LSC at Greystone at 707-9672406 or the disability support specialists in the Learning Strategies Center at our Hyde Park campus at 845-451-1219 or 845-4511288 for assistance in determining if your documentation is appropriate and current.

Faculty, Alumni, and Externship Host Mentor Programs The Learning Strategies Center (LSC) at our Hyde Park, NY campus coordinates
the Faculty, Alumni, and Externship Host Mentor Programs. In the Faculty and Alumni Mentor Programs, enrolled students on all of our campuses have an opportunity to be paired with either a faculty member on campus or an experienced CIA graduate. The programs provide students with additional guidance and structure as they pursue their culinary or baking and pastry career. The mentor acts as a role model to demonstrate the positive results of pride, professionalism, and hard work, and can help a student determine which area of the industry he or she is best suited for or most interested in pursuing. Mentors can also help introduce students to the wide network of CIA alumni and other professionals in the field. To provide students with support while they are on their externships, the CIA has an Externship Host Mentor Program. The externship host mentor is a CIA graduate located in the city a student chooses to go to for his or her externship. The role of this mentor is to help the student know where to find appropriate housing; introduce him or her to other restaurateurs as well as area purveyors, manufacturers, and farmers; and share information about offerings such as sports and the arts. The program will give students an opportunity to use their time on externship for continued learning and to begin to establish their own professional network. The Faculty, Alumni, and Externship Host Mentor Programs are voluntary programs designed for the benefit of students who want to enhance their educational experience to the fullest. To learn more, please contact the Learning Strategies Center administrator at 707-967-2406.

TECHNOLOGY ON CAMPUS FOR STUDENTS The CIA at Greystone currently has a stateof-the-art network infrastructure that supports LAN, WAN, wireless network, high-speed Internet connection, and 14 PC workstations in one computer lab on campus available for student use. The computers run a variety of applications such as MS Office, ESHA Food Processor, Internet, and other applications used to support the curriculum. Residence halls and other locations on campus—such as the teaching kitchen, the Ventura Foods Center for Menu Research and Development, the Williams Center for Flavor Discovery, and the Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies—are equipped with an 802.11 a/b/g compliant wireless network. Within their first week on campus, students will be provided with access to CIA Main Menu (the student web portal), MyCIA.net e-mail, and the online learning system. Information available through CIA Main Menu includes campus events, announcements, departmental web pages, links to other educational resources, and information personalized to the individual student (i.e., Student Account, Financial Aid, and Registrar information). MyCIA.net email is another avenue for sharing campusrelated information from faculty, staff, and student clubs. It’s also available for students to take with them after graduation, enabling them to maintain contact with their alma mater as they move forward in their careers. Course guides, as well as other supporting materials for classes, are posted via an online course management system. All of these Internet resources are available from both on- and off-campus locations for all currently enrolled students. 22 | Student Life and Services
Information Technology (IT) staff members are available to advise students on a wide variety of technical issues. For questions about account information, students may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call IT support in Hyde Park at 845-451-1698 from 9:30 a.m.– 12:30 p.m. or 2–6 p.m. Pacific Time.

We will only look at a machine if it is the student’s own. We cannot fix hardware issues, but will look over the computer to give advice on getting it repaired. For more information about computer resources offered at the CIA, as well as detailed information about the wireless network, account information, recommended PC configurations, and updated technologies on campus, visit www.ciachef.edu/admissions/life/technology. It is highly recommended that students bring a personal computer when enrolling in classes to take full advantage of the available electronic resources used during their course of study. The computer lab is available to anyone without this equipment and provides printing services.
Student Computer Lab Greystone’s computer laboratory is located on the southwest corner of the third floor of the main building next to the Education Office. The computer lab is equipped with a wide variety of software programs and also provides services such as printing. Peer-to-Peer File Sharing Peer-to-peer file sharing is not allowed and is blocked on the CIA network using bandwidth-shaping technology. Under the Higher Education Opportunity Act (H.R.
4137), illegal distribution of copyrighted materials may be subject to criminal and civil penalties. The CIA is legally obligated to assist authorities in identifying individuals who violate copyright law pertaining to peer-to-peer file sharing. It is also in violation of school policy to use technology designed to circumvent the blocking of this activity.
LIBRARY The Margie Schubert Library is located on the third floor of the main building adjacent to the teaching kitchens. In addition, through a special arrangement, students may borrow books from the St. Helena Public Library, which has an outstanding collection on wines. Resources are also available from The Culinary Institute of Americaâ€™s Conrad N. Hilton Library at the Hyde Park, NY campus. The library houses an outstanding collection of nearly 86,000 volumes, 4,500 DVDs and videos, and approximately 280 current periodical titles. Although there is a strong specialization in the culinary field, the collection also has a liberal arts listing supporting the collegeâ€™s ever-expanding educational programs. The library is also home to the Learning Strategies Center (see page 16). CAREER SERVICES A CIA education offers students unparalleled career opportunities. The Career Services Office is located at the main campus in Hyde Park, NY. The director of career services maintains an office at the Greystone campus and schedules regular visits to campus to assist students throughout their career decision-making process. A variety of resources and activities are available to help assess career potential, stay abreast of indus-
try trends and requirements, develop a knowledge of job opportunities, and set employment goals. The externship course in the AOS degree program is an integral part of the curriculum and a significant opportunity for students. This direct industry experience enables them to apply new skills and further clarify career goals. For assistance in acquiring permanent positions, students may access online job listings to learn of employment opportunities, career paths, and organization characteristics. CIA students can use a web-based system, Experience, to research opportunities. The system offers links to the websites of employers, enabling students to more fully research job opportunities with particular organizations. Whether seeking an externship site or fulltime employment after graduation, you are strongly encouraged to have early and ongoing involvement with the activities and resources the Career Services Office provides to make well-informed externship and employment decisions. While the college vigorously pursues job placement for graduates, placement is not guaranteed.
ON-CAMPUS EMPLOYMENT Part-time employment may be available at the Greystone campus. Students often work in the Spice Islands Marketplace (campus store), as well as in campus administration and the Education and Special Events departments. There are a variety of jobs available, including tutors, office assistants, tour guides, kitchen assistants, retail clerks, purchasing assistants, prep cooks, and servers for special events on campus. In addition to offsetting your college expenses, on-campus employment can enhance your Student Life and Services | 23

ALUMNI RELATIONS Since 1946, The Culinary Institute of America has greatly expanded its programs both within the college and with our alumni constituency. This has happened with a clearly defined purpose: to create and maintain the premier college for culinary education. In the process, our alumni ranks have grown to more than 44,000 professionals working in all areas of foodservice throughout the U.S. and the world. 24 | Student Life and Services
The Alumni Relations Department was established to fully integrate CIA alumni into regional and national programs which will benefit their professional growth and provide support for the college, both academically and financially. CIA alumni are involved in virtually every area of college advancement, including recruitment, admissions, student mentoring, career placement, fund-raising, regional receptions, and other special CIA presentations. In turn, the college offers lifelong access to career placement assistance, résumé referral services, continuing education courses, instructional and training videos and DVDs, and publications to keep alumni updated on colleagues and new programs, activities, and industry advancements. All CIA alumni are welcomed as members of the Alumni Network and its online community (www.ciaalumninetwork.com). Upon graduation, students receive an ID card that qualifies them for discounts in the restaurants, for continuing education courses, for CIA-produced instructional media, and in the Spice Islands Marketplace at the CIA at Greystone. Annual class reunions and regional alumni receptions held throughout the country bring graduates together for social and business networking. The Alumni Relations staff is available to assist students and alumni. For more information, contact the Alumni Relations Department in Hyde Park at 845-451-1401 or email@example.com.

Please note: • Credits accepted for transfer may count toward the completion of degree or certificate program requirements but are not calculated in a student’s grade point average at the college. • Tuition charges are assessed based on fulltime study, with each semester ranging between 12–18 credits. Students who take fewer or more than the full-time course load will be charged according to the schedule on page 35.
POLICY FOR TRANSFERS BETWEEN CAMPUSES (DEGREE PROGRAMS) In some instances, a currently enrolled associate degree student may seek a transfer of studies to a different CIA campus in the U.S. The following policy has been established so that each case may be considered on an individual basis. The student must submit a written request for transfer to the appropriate department at the target campus that includes a full explanation as to why the transfer is necessary. For transfers to the CIA at Greystone, the student should contact the director of education support; for transfers to Hyde Park, the Registrar’s Office; and for transfers to San Antonio, the director of education. As part of this written request, the student will provide a personal plan identifying dates for the transfer request and how he or she intends to maintain academic progress through the process. The written request will be reviewed and given consideration based on the following conditions: • Space is available at the target campus, • The student has completed at least one semester of study, and at least one semester of study remains prior to anticipated graduation, • The student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0, • The student’s learning track will not be interrupted in a way that will interfere with his or her academic progress, • The student will be responsible for any makeup and re-registration fees, • The student does not have any unresolved probationary or disciplinary issues, and • The student is in good financial standing with the Bursar’s Office. Admissions | 31
A student is allowed only one transfer opportunity during his or her degree pursuit. The student may not retake any class in which he or she has previously received a final grade. Attendance records will carry over from one campus to the other and will be considered along with academic progress. A student who has withdrawn or who is on a leave of absence may also be considered for transfer to another campus if the request is made within one year of the original leave. Once all criteria are reviewed, the student will be notified of the transfer decision by either the director of education support at Greystone, the director of education in San Antonio, or the Registrar’s Office in Hyde Park.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Application Application procedures are the same as those for applicants from the United States, with the exception of three additional requirements: 1. If your native language is other than English, you will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language as part of your application file through either: • the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), administered by the Educational Testing Service. A minimum paper score of 550, CBT (computer-based test) score of 213, or iBT (Internet-based test) score of 80 (with a minimum of 20 in each section) is required. For information on test dates and locations, write to TOEFL, Box 6151, Princeton, NJ, 08541, USA; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; visit www.toefl.org; or call 609-771-7100; or • the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), co-sponsored by the English testing entity of the University of Cambridge, and British and Australian 32 | Admissions
organizations. A minimum overall score of 7.0 is required. For information, write to IELTS, Inc.,100 East Corson Street, Suite 200, Pasadena, CA 91103, USA; e-mail email@example.com; visit www.ielts.org; or call 626-564-2954. 2. In order for you, as an international student, to obtain your Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20): • your sponsor(s) must provide the Admissions Department with valid Affidavits of Support (Form I-134) verifying that funds will be available for all educational and living expenses while you are studying in the United States, or • you may choose to provide a bank statement indicating sufficient funds on account and a cover letter from the holder of the account stating his or her intent to provide your tuition and living expenses for the duration of your studies in the United States. 3. You must provide a copy of your passport showing your personal information page (to ensure accurate processing of Form I-20).
Please note: All documentation must be in English. If originals are in another language, they must be translated before they are submitted to the CIA.
Visa Requirements (AOS Degrees) The associate degree programs require an F-1 student visa. International students who hold an F-1 student visa and are enrolled in these programs may: • work on campus for a maximum of 20 hours per week with authorization by the school official. • complete the required externship in the U.S. with authorization by the school official. Employment authorization is job-specific. • accept part-time employment off campus after nine months of full-time study with authorization from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) via the application
process. The time worked will be deducted from post-completion employment. • accept full-time employment—for up to 12 months after completion of studies—with authorization from the DHS via the application process, which takes approximately three months.
All of the above employment opportunities require a Social Security number. This application process takes 10–20 days, with authorization from the school official, and an offer of employment.
you select a health plan that is right for you. Also, most plans require you to pay for a portion of your care, so access to some cash or credit is still important. A group policy, the “Part B: Sickness Medical Expense Benefit,” is offered by the CIA as well. In lieu of personal coverage, the CIA policy will be mandatory.
Note: Canadian citizens do not need a visa to enter the U.S., but must have a passport. A student should present the passport, Form I-20 A-B, and financial documentation at the Canadian/U.S. border.
Visa Requirements (Certificate Programs) The certificate programs require an M-1 student visa. The M-1 visa does not allow students to work in the United States during their education, and is not acceptable for employment in the U.S. following graduation. Students may apply for employment authorization after completion of studies based on one month of employment for every four months of study. Medical Insurance As an F-1 or M-1 student, you are required to have medical insurance while in the U.S. We strongly recommend that you obtain a medical insurance plan before you leave that will cover your health costs in this country. Please note that you may also want to secure coverage for mental health care, prescriptions for any chronic illness, and dental care, as these are not necessarily included in basic medical insurance policies. You should consider your overall needs and well-being as Admissions | 33

The college will credit to your student account any tuition amount due as indicated on page 35, and will pay any balance due to you from unliquidated tuition deposits within 30 days of your leaving school. New, unused equipment may be returned to the student affairs manager within 20 days of withdrawal for credit to your student account. Uniforms that have been embroidered with your name may not be returned. If you have a prolonged illness, you’ll receive a full, proportional refund from the college.
Treatment of Title IV Aid When a Student Withdraws The law specifies how the college must determine the amount of Title IV program assistance that you earn if you withdraw from school. The Title IV programs that are covered by this law are: Federal Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS), Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOGs), Federal Perkins Loans and, in some cases, certain state grant aid (LEAP/SLEAP), GEAR UP grants, and SSS Grants to students. 36 | Tuition and Fees
When you withdraw during your period of enrollment, the amount of Title IV program assistance that you have earned up to that point is determined by a specific formula. If you received (or the college or a parent received on your behalf) less assistance than the amount that you earned, you may be able to receive those additional funds. If you received more assistance than you earned, the excess funds must be returned by the college and/or you. The amount of assistance that you have earned is determined on a pro rata basis. For example, if you completed 30% of your period of enrollment, you earn 30% of the assistance you were originally scheduled to receive. Once you have completed more than 60% of the period of enrollment, you earn all the assistance that you were scheduled to receive for that period. If you did not receive all of the funds that you earned, you may be due a post-withdrawal disbursement. If the post-withdrawal disbursement includes loan funds, you may choose to decline the loan funds so that you don’t incur additional debt. The college may automatically use all or a portion of your post-withdrawal disbursement (including loan funds, if you accept them) for tuition fees and room and board charges (as contracted with the college); for other college charges, the college needs your permission to use the post-withdrawal disbursement. If you do not give permission (which some colleges ask for when you enroll), you will be offered the funds. However, it may be in your best interest to allow the college to keep the funds to reduce your debt at the college. There are some Title IV funds that you were scheduled to receive that you cannot earn once you withdraw because of other eligibility requirements. For example, if you are
a first-time, first-year undergraduate student and you have not completed the first 30 days of your program before you withdraw, you will not earn any Direct loan funds that you would have received had you remained enrolled past the 30th day. If you receive (or the college or a parent receives on your behalf) excess Title IV program funds that must be returned, the college must return a portion of the excess equal to the lesser of 1. your institutional charges multiplied by the unearned percentage of your funds, or 2. the entire amount of excess funds.
The college must return this amount even if it didn’t keep this amount of your Title IV program funds. If the college is not required to return all of the excess funds, you must return the remaining amount. Any loan funds that you must return, you (or your parent, for a PLUS) repay in accordance with the terms of the promissory note. That is, you make scheduled payments to the holder of the loan over a period of time. Any amount of unearned grant funds that you must return is called an overpayment. The amount of a grant overpayment that you must repay is half of the unearned amount. You must make arrangements with the college or the Department of Education to return the unearned grant funds. The requirements for Title IV program funds when you withdraw are separate from any refund policy that the college may have. Therefore, you may still owe funds to the college to cover unpaid institutional charges. The college may also charge you for any Title IV program funds that the college was required to return. If you have questions about your Title IV program funds, call the Federal Student Aid
Information Center at 1-800-4-FEDAID (1-800-433-3243). TTY users may call 1-800-730-8913. Information is also available on Student Aid on the web by visiting www.studentaid.ed.gov. The college will make available upon request examples of the application of our refund policy.
CREDIT BALANCES Credit balances will be refunded upon request or automatically refunded within 14 days of the date the credit occurs on the student’s account and are processed at the Bursar’s Office at the Hyde Park campus. Current students can pick up their refund checks in their group mailbox; all other refunds will be mailed to the last known billing address. Note that the law requires that any excess PLUS funds be returned to the parent. If a school determines that PLUS funds created a credit balance, the credit balance would have to be given to the parent. The CIA will refund the parent when the PLUS is the only payment on the account and the PLUS disbursement is more than the student’s institutional charges. See page 41 to learn more. TUITION INSTALLMENT PLAN The Culinary Institute of America, in partnership with Tuition Management Systems (TMS), is pleased to offer payment choices to help you afford your college education expenses. This interest-free monthly payment option allows you to maximize your savings and income by spreading your college education expenses over equal monthly payments.

Priority for federal grants, loans, and Work-Study is given to students showing the greatest need as demonstrated by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Merit-based scholarships are also available.
APPLYING FOR AID To apply for financial aid, you must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The CIA’s federal code is 007304. Students selected for verification will be asked to provide additional information to the Financial Aid Office such as official IRS transcripts of your or your parents’ federal tax returns. Incoming students will automatically be considered for CIA merit-based aid through the admissions process. HOW NEED IS DETERMINED Financial need is determined by subtracting the family contribution—determined by the FAFSA—from the college cost of attendance. The difference between the college cost of attendance and your family contribution represents your financial need. COST OF ATTENDANCE In addition to the fixed direct cost listed in the Tuition and Fees section of this catalog, the CIA is required to estimate a cost of attendance (COA) that includes indirect costs such as personal expenses and transportation. While COA can be one of the more confusing aspects of the financial aid process, it gives the student and his or her family an idea of what costs might be incurred beyond tuition and fees so they
can plan accordingly. It is important to differentiate between indirect costs, which are simply estimates used by our office during the awarding process to determine a student’s financial need, and direct costs, which are actual amounts that will be charged to the student’s account. Keep in mind that the Financial Aid Office can only award students an amount of aid equal to or less than their associated cost of attendance budget. If you have questions regarding your budget, would like consultation in planning your budget, or would like copies of the cost of attendance, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
STUDENT ELIGIBILITY RESPONSIBILITY To be eligible for federal or state financial aid, you must not owe repayment on a federal or state grant, or be in default on any guaranteed/federally insured student loan. Also, you must be making satisfactory progress in the academic program (see “Policy on Satisfactory Academic Progress,” page 52). Aid Suspension Due to Drug Conviction The Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, suspends aid eligibility for students who have been convicted under federal or state law of the sale or possession Financial Aid | 39
of drugs, if the offense occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving federal student aid. If you have a conviction for this offense, call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-433-3243 or go to the FAFSA website (www.fafsa.ed.gov), click “Before Beginning a FAFSA” in the left column, and submit the Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet to find out how this law applies to you. If you have lost your federal student aid eligibility because of drug conviction, you can regain eligibility by successfully completing a qualified drug rehabilitation program or passing two unannounced drug tests administered by such a program. You may also regain your eligibility if your conviction is reversed, set aside, or removed from your record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for possession remain on your record.
CONTINUED FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY Students must reapply for financial aid each school year; the CIA has a FAFSA priority deadline of April 15. Students who file by this date will be processed first and given priority for institutional and federal campus-based funds. Students also need to make satisfactory academic progress, as determined by the director of education support, in order for aid to continue. If makeup course work is required before starting a new semester, financial aid will not be awarded for the new semester until the course work has been completed and the director of education support determines the student’s eligibility to start the new semester. There is no federal, state, or CIA aid offered for the costs of making up courses. 40 | Financial Aid
FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS The CIA participates in the following programs, which are funded wholly or in part by the U.S. government: Federal Pell Grant If you have not yet earned a bachelor’s degree, you may be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant. Award amounts are determined by the U.S. Department of Education based upon your expected family contribution (EFC). Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) Students who have not yet received a bachelor’s degree and are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant may be considered for a Federal SEOG. Based on the availability of funds, priority is given to the students with the greatest need who submitted the FAFSA by the CIA’s deadline. Amounts vary and are determined each year based on funds allocated to the CIA by the U.S. Department of Education. Federal Work-Study You may apply for a Federal Work-Study position if the Financial Aid Office determines you are eligible. The dollar amount of the award, however, is only an estimate of your expected earnings and is not deducted from your bill by the Bursar’s Office. As a Work-Study-approved student, you find employment by applying for one of the jobs at the CIA, and you receive a paycheck every other week. You may work up to 20 hours per week. Although preference for on-campus employment is given to Work-Studyapproved students, jobs are not guaranteed.
Federal Perkins Loan A Federal Perkins Loan is a low-interest loan for both AOS and certificate program students who demonstrate exceptional need. The Financial Aid Office determines eligibility, giving priority to students with the greatest financial need who have completed the FAFSA process by the priority deadline. Award amounts vary based on need and the U.S. Department of Education allocation to the CIA. Federal Direct Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized) Both Direct Loan programs require the borrowers to complete entrance counseling and the Master Promissory Note. To obtain more information about the Federal Direct Loan programs, including the current interest and fee rates, visit www.studentloans.gov. The Direct Subsidized Loan is awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. The federal government pays all interest costs for Direct Subsidized borrowers while the borrowers are in school. The Direct Unsubsidized Loan is awarded to students who do not meet financial need or who need to supplement their Direct Subsidized Loans. Borrowers remain responsible for all interest that accrues (accumulates) during school, grace, and deferment periods. Dependent students in their freshman year of the AOS degree program may borrow up to $5,500 (including up to $3,500 Subsidized) per year. AOS sophomores can borrow up to $6,500 (including $4,500 Subsidized) per year. Students in the certificate programs can borrow up to $7,500 (including $5,500 Subsidized) per year. Important to know: Dependent students whose parents get denied a Federal Direct
PLUS can receive an additional $4,000 for the freshman and sophomore years. Independent students (typically 24 years old or older) in their freshman year of the AOS degree program may borrow up to $9,500 (including up to $3,500 Subsidized) per year. AOS sophomores can borrow up to $10,500 (including up to $4,500 Subsidized). Students in the certificate programs can borrow up to $12,500 (including $5,500 Subsidized) per year. Students start repayment of the loan(s)— plus interest—six months after they complete their program, withdraw, or otherwise stop attending the CIA. The government offers different repayment plans and the most common is the standard repayment, which spreads out the principal and interest amounts over the course of 10 years (please see the sample repayment chart on page 42). All loans taken out to finance your education must be paid in full and in a timely manner. Failure to repay loan(s) will affect your credit rating as well as jeopardize loan programs for all students. Upon graduation, student borrowers will be given information on loan repayment.
Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) Parents of dependent students in the degree programs may apply for a PLUS to help with their child’s educational expenses. The parent must be the student’s biological or adoptive parent, and must not have an adverse credit history (i.e., must be credit-worthy). In addition, the parent must complete the PLUS application and sign the Master Promissory Note (MPN). Important to know: Your parent should not apply for a PLUS more than 90 days prior to your entry date. Financial Aid | 41

ACADEMIC POLICIES Students at The Culinary Institute of America, as at any college, are taught a variety of information, skills, and values in their classes. They are evaluated based on their performance in the college’s classrooms, kitchens, bakeshops, and dining rooms as they progress toward their degree. This section outlines the policies that support the curricula and academic life at the CIA.
POLICY ON ATTENDANCE Class Attendance Given the demands of the college’s degree and certificate programs, the amount of material covered in classes, and the nature of the curriculum, all students are required to arrive on time and remain in class for all class sessions. Students who miss more than a specific number of classes within a course will automatically fail that course and must repeat the entire course. Students who miss more than a specific number of classes throughout the program will be put on probation or suspended. Missing Classes If students are absent for a class in which daily participation is graded, they will receive a grade of zero for that class. Students who miss more than a specified number of classes in a course (as follows) shall automatically fail that course and will have to retake it unless they have been administratively withdrawn prior to the end of the course: • Two classes in a 1.5- or three-credit 11-, 12-, 13-, 14-, or 15-day course as well as a 14- or 15-week course • Four classes in a six-credit culinary or baking and pastry course • Four classes in a three-credit course that meets 24 times in a semester
48 | Academic Policies
Absences Prior to Major Vacations Students who miss class(es) on either the day before or the day after the July, November, or December vacations will earn two absences for each class that they miss. Please verify class schedules with the published academic calendar before making any travel plans for these vacations periods. Attendance Probation for Cumulative Absences AOS degree students who miss 10 classes in the freshman and sophomore years will be reminded of the policy, placed on attendance probation, and warned of possible suspension or dismissal by the student affairs manager. In blocks where two or more courses meet in one day, each class that a student misses counts as one absence. Certificate program students can miss no more than five classes for the 30-week duration of the program and still be considered for graduation. In semesters where two or more courses meet in one day, each class that a student misses counts as one absence per class. Students who miss four classes may be placed on attendance probation. Attendance Review AOS students on attendance probation who miss additional classes may be required to attend a meeting of the Standards Committee. Certificate students who miss four classes may be required to attend a meeting of the Standards Committee.
Attendance at Standards Committee Meetings Students who do not attend the scheduled meeting of the Standards Committee will be automatically suspended, and the Committee will determine whether and under what conditions the students will be allowed to continue their studies at the college. Attendance Suspension AOS degree students who accumulate more than 18 absences in their freshman and sophomore years may be suspended from college by the Standards Committee. Medical, legal, and family emergency reasons for missing classes will be taken into account by the Standards Committee so long as students notify the student affairs manager at the time and can provide appropriate documentation. Personal Emergencies and Exceptional Circumstances If a student is forced to miss a class due to sickness, personal emergencies, or unforeseen circumstances, the student must notify the student affairs manager, who will notify the faculty member and the director of education support. Depending on the nature of the situation and the academic circumstances, the student affairs manager, after consultation with the faculty member, may recommend an administrative withdrawal from the course. In exceptional circumstances and if the student has not exceeded the maximum number of absences that would cause one to fail the course or be withdrawn from the program, the faculty member may assign additional work and give partial credit for a missed class. In the event that a student is sick on the day(s) of theirÂ practical and/or make-up practical, they should (if possible)Â go directly to a physician for an evaluation. If warranted, the doctor will issue a sick note for
the student to take to the student affairs manager, who will inform the registration manager of the No Show due to sickness. After a discussion with the student, the registration manager will re-schedule the test date, and the student will not be charged for the new test date. Baking and pastry arts students should refer to their practical criteria for the baking and pastry two-dayÂ practical examination for additional grading criteria and information.
Religious Holidays/Military Reservist Duty If you are observing a religious holiday or have required military reservist duty that coincides with regularly scheduled class days, you are excused for that time period. In such cases, you can be excused for no more than two days of that class and you will be held accountable for information you missed. If you need to take more than two days for religious or military service reasons, you will be required to take an Administrative Withdrawal (AW). As a participant in religious or military reservist activities, you will not be academically penalized for missing class. Standards Committee The members of the Standards Committee will include the dean of education, director of education support, student affairs manager, team leader for baking and pastry arts, and team leader for culinary arts. Appeal Since the decision of the Standards Committee is final, there is no appeal.
Academic Policies | 49
LEAVES OF ABSENCE AND WITHDRAWALS Students may request a leave of absence from CIA classes for up to 90 days. A second leave of absence may be requested within a 12-month period for medical reasons. Leaves of absence must be requested in writing to the student affairs manager. Students who do not file their request for a leave of absence in writing, or who are leaving CIA for periods of time greater than 90 days, will be placed on Withdrawal. For further details, please contact the student affairs manager. For tuition refund information, refer to the schedule for withdrawal refunds on page 35. Students who re-enroll following their leave of absence or withdrawal are responsible for completing any new curriculum requirements that may have been added during the period of their absence. In such cases, students may be charged additional tuition or fees according to college policies. For more information, please refer to the Student Handbook. ATTENDING CLASSES WITH A TEMPORARY MEDICAL CONDITION Students who have a medical condition requiring an arm cast, a sling, a leg cast, or crutches, or other temporary condition that significantly impairs mobility will not be permitted in culinary, baking, pastry, or table service classes for safety reasons. When their condition is fully healed, they must present a release note from their doctor to the student affairs manager in order to resume culinary, baking, pastry, or table service classes. Faculty concerned about a student’s participation in class for these reasons should inform the student affairs manager and send the student to that office.
50 | Academic Policies
ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL/ DROPPING A CLASS All students are expected to attend and complete all classes for which they are registered. However, there are times when a medical or personal emergency may prevent a student from completing a class. In such cases, a student may request permission to withdraw from a class by immediately contacting the student affairs manager. All requests for withdrawal from a class are given serious consideration, but not all requests are granted. Please keep in mind that if you had been failing the class at the time you requested withdrawal, you may still receive a failing grade. First-semester freshmen may not qualify for an administrative withdrawal (AW) for a class unless they are able to maintain fulltime status, minus the class they are requesting to drop. Students who are granted an Administrative Withdrawal from a class will be charged $50 to retake the class. Students may drop a course if they follow the guidelines outlined in the Student Handbook. COURSE MAKEUP POLICY Students who have to make up a course for any reason must make arrangements through the registration manager. Doubling up on courses is strongly discouraged, but may be permitted under the following conditions: • The student has a minimum grade point average of 2.0 and is not on academic probation. • The courses being considered are not courses in the second semester of the sophomore year. • The enrollment in the makeup course does not exceed the maximum allowable class size. • The course schedules do not conflict. • There are no prerequisites.
Should doubling be allowed, students will only be able to take one course on a double schedule. Degree program students who fail a course twice must obtain written permission from the associate director of education to take the course at another college and must receive a grade of “C” or higher to transfer the credits back to The Culinary Institute of America. Certificate program students must pass all courses in no more than two attempts.
CULINARY AND BAKING & PASTRY PRACTICAL RETAKE POLICY (AOS DEGREES) Students who remain unsuccessful at passing the culinary or baking and pastry practical examinations after their third attempt will not be allowed to register for a subsequent attempt until they have met with the Standards Committee. The Committee may require the completion of remedial work before allowing the student to register for any subsequent attempts. This may require the student to take a leave of absence in order to complete the work off campus. Students will be notified by the student affairs manager when they are required to meet with the Standards Committee. COSTING PRACTICAL RETAKE POLICY (AOS DEGREES) Students who fail the costing practical examination two or more times are required to make an appointment with the Learning Strategies Center administrator and receive five hours of documented tutoring before the exam can be rescheduled. Once the student has received the necessary tutoring, he or she will be cleared by the Learning Strategies Center administrator to register to retake the exam.
CULINARY AND WINE & SERVICE PRACTICAL RETAKE POLICY (CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS) Students who remain unsuccessful at passing either the culinary or wine and service practical examinations after their third attempt will not be allowed to register for a subsequent attempt until they have met with the Standards Committee. The Committee may require the completion of remedial work before allowing the student to register for any subsequent attempts. This may require the student to take a leave of absence in order to complete the work off campus. Students will be notified by the student affairs manager when they are required to meet with the Standards Committee. PREREQUISITES FOR EXTERNSHIP (AOS DEGREES) Externship takes place during your third semester. You may be registered for Externship with one culinary arts or baking and pastry arts course outstanding and one liberal arts or business management course outstanding. An outstanding course is defined as one you have failed, one for which you have received an Incomplete, or one from which you have withdrawn. However—without exception—to begin externship, you must have received a passing grade for: • Food Safety (ARTS-112), which includes achieving ServSafe® certification • Culinary or Baking and Pastry Practical Examination I • Externship Prep Seminar I and II, and the Externship Registration Seminar
Procedure Students who fail the Culinary or Baking and Pastry Practical Examination I will be notified immediately by the faculty member administering the examination. They must make arrangements with the registration Academic Policies | 51
manager to take the examination by the end of the semester and pass in order to be allowed to begin their externship. Please see the exam retake policy on page 51 for more information. Students will be notified by the registration manager of any outstanding courses and the available schedule for makeups.
PREREQUISITE FOR SOPHOMORE-YEAR REGISTRATION Students with outstanding courses from freshman year due to failure, incomplete grade, or administrative withdrawal are required to successfully complete those courses before beginning the first semester of the sophomore year. PREREQUISITES FOR RESTAURANT COURSES In order to enroll in the CIA’s restaurant service courses (Contemporary Restaurant Service and Formal Restaurant Service), AOS culinary arts students must successfully complete their externship and the practical exam portion of the Introduction to Customer Service class. POLICY ON SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS Academic Standards Committee The Academic Standards Committee is responsible for reviewing and assessing student academic progress and upholding the college’s academic standards and honesty policies. If a student is unable to maintain satisfactory academic progress or has exhibited academic dishonesty, the committee can impose sanctions including, but not limited to: • Academic probation • Suspension from the college • Permanent dismissal from the college
52 | Academic Policies
Satisfactory Academic Performance Students are expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress and move efficiently through the program by passing all courses and assessments, and maintaining a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 1.75 at the end of the first semester and a 2.0 for all subsequent semesters. Student grades may be reviewed at any time. A student will not be considered making satisfactory academic progress if he or she: • Has a cumulative GPA below 1.75 at the end of the first semester, • Has a semester GPA below 2.0 for any subsequent semester, • Has failed externship twice, • Has been unable to complete successfully a semester within eight months, • Is being reviewed for violation of the Policy on Academic Honesty, or • Has extenuating circumstances that need to be reviewed by the committee.
Prior to meeting with the Academic Standards Committee, students will be required to provide a statement to the committee describing the reasons that contributed to poor academic performance. If a student fails to appear before the Academic Standards Committee, the committee has the authority to proceed with the hearing and render a decision.
Veterans Affairs When the grade point average of a Veterans Affairs (VA) student is unsatisfactory after nine weeks, the student will be placed on academic probation for six weeks. If, during the next semester, the student’s cumulative grade point average remains below the graduation requirement, the student will not be certified for VA educational benefits until his/her academic status is restored to good
standing. However, the student can continue enrollment subject to regular CIA academic policies. The CIA maintains a written record of the previous education and training of the veteran or eligible person, and clearly indicates appropriate credit has been given for that education or training. The educational period for that student at the CIA will be shortened proportionately, and the college will notify the student and the Department of Veterans Affairs when this occurs.
Students will be required to submit a request for readmission to the registration manager a minimum of three weeks prior to a reentry date. Reentry dates will be based on availability of space in the class or semester in which the student wants to return.
Academic Probation Academic probation provides students an opportunity to improve their academic standing while still enrolled in the program. Academic probation will be communicated in writing by the registration manager. Students on academic probation must meet with the Learning Strategies Center administrator to address study skill issues. They may also be encouraged to meet with a counselor to help address personal issues.
• Be in good satisfactory academic standing, and
Academic Suspension Academic suspension will be rendered if a student: • Has been on academic probation during the last semester completed and is unable to maintain a GPA of 2.0 by the end of the current semester, • Fails a course three times, or • Does not satisfy other criteria deemed appropriate by the Academic Standards Committee.
While on academic probation, students will have their GPA audited every three weeks prior to the end of the semester. If a student’s cumulative GPA is below 2.0 by the end of the semester of the academic probation, he or she will be suspended from classes for a minimum of 15 weeks.
Financial Aid Probation In accordance with HEA Section 484(c), 34 CFR 668.16(e), 34 CFR 668.32(f) and 34 CFR 668.34, in order to be deemed eligible for financial aid, students must:
• Maintain full-time status.
Students at The Culinary Institute of America are expected to maintain fulltime status in the program, which is a minimum of 12 credits per semester. On occasion, they may fall below full-time due to failures or other circumstances. If students fall below 12 credits, they will be classified as part-time and may lose part or all of their financial aid package. Check with the Financial Aid Office if you are required to drop below full-time. If, at the end of a semester, it has been determined that a student does not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements, that student will not be eligible for financial aid unless granted a one-semester probationary period by the Academic Standards Committee. When retaking a course that is not part of a full semester, students will not be eligible to receive financial aid until they have successfully completed the course and are permitted to start the next semester.
Recording Suspensions or dismissal will be recorded on the student’s transcript. Academic Policies | 53
Appeal The decision of the Academic Standards Committee is final and therefore cannot be appealed. POLICY ON ACADEMIC HONESTY At The Culinary Institute of America, students are expected to develop their own ideas and to consult research materials for their studies. Borrowing original ideas, recipes, research, or wording from another source without giving credit is plagiarism; using prepared materials from an organization whose primary business is selling research papers is dishonest; submitting a paper prepared for one course to a faculty member teaching another course or section of that same course, without prior permission, is cheating; copying from another source is stealing; and cheating in any form is dishonest. This behavior, or assisting anyone else in this behavior, represents a serious violation of professional and academic standards at the CIA and will not be tolerated. Since such behavior is demeaning to the academic integrity of the programs, students who do not record the sources of their information will fail that assignment and may be required to complete another equivalent assignment. Students who copy materials that are not their own and present that material as their own work will fail the assignment and possibly the course. Students found cheating will automatically fail the test or assignment involved and may also fail the course. Serious violations of these standards will require that student to see the Standards Committee. Initial Consequences A faculty member who identifies academically dishonest behavior will tell the student 54 | Academic Policies
about it, explain what is wrong, ask for an explanation, and inform the student of the consequences for the dishonesty. In each case, the faculty member will inform the student in person and by letter, a copy of which will be sent to the registrar and the associate director of education.
Suspension or Dismissal In cases of academic dishonesty where the faculty member wants to recommend suspension or dismissal, the faculty member shall consult with the appropriate education staff member and shall recommend suspension or dismissal in writing to the appropriate college official within five working days (Monday through Friday, exclusive of holidays). The faculty member shall also inform the student in writing. Academic Review The individual records of students who are recommended by a faculty member for suspension or dismissal due to academic dishonesty will be reviewed by the Standards Committee. Students will be required to provide a statement or explanation of their situation as well as attend a meeting to review the circumstances surrounding the dishonest behavior. At that meeting, a decision will be made regarding whether the student will be suspended, be dismissed, or can continue at the college under specific conditions. If students fail to live up to these conditions, they will be suspended for a minimum of one semester or dismissed from the college. Recording Students suspended or dismissed for academic reasons will have that fact recorded on their transcripts.
Appeal Since the decision of the Standards Committee is final, there is no appeal. GRADING The college operates on a quality-point alpha grading system as follows: Grade
In order to calculate the GPA, multiply the credits earned by the grade points for each course separately to calculate the quality points. Then add all the quality points together and divide total quality points by credits earned, including credits for “F” grades that have not been repeated. For courses with “C” level competency, grades of “C-” or “D” are equivalent to failing grades.
GRADING SYMBOLS I Incomplete: This grade indicates a student hasn’t completed all the course requirements. It may also indicate failure to master specific course competencies. Freshmen or sophomores must make up all course requirements before they can begin the next semester. If students do not complete the course by the specified date, they will automatically fail the course and be required to make up the entire course at the cost of full tuition. W Withdrawal from the CIA: This grade doesn’t include absences and isn’t computed into the grade point average. AW Administrative Withdrawal: This symbol indicates that a student was granted an administrative withdrawal from the class by the associate director of continuing education. Absences are not shown, and there is no effect on the cumulative grade point average. P Pass: Given for costing, cooking, and baking practical exams and some passfail courses. HP High Pass: Given for costing, cooking, writing, and baking practical examinations. TC Transfer Credit: Denotes that credit for a course was transferred from another college. NS No Show: Given only for costing, cooking, and baking practical exams and externship prep seminars if a student never showed up to take them. Note: if a practical exam or externship prep seminar is missed for this reason, it is recorded as an absence.
Academic Policies | 55
NG No Grade: This grade is automatically given if a student is on a roster and the instructor fails to give a grade or if the student hasn’t officially withdrawn from a course. AU Audit: This symbol indicates that a student did not take the course for credit and the instructor of this course did not make an evaluation to issue a grade. Students are only allowed to repeat classes that they have previously failed or from which they have received an administrative withdrawal. When the course is repeated and a passing grade is issued, the previous failure remains on the student’s transcript but is not included in the calculation of his or her grade point average. If a repeated course is failed more than once, all failures are noted on the transcript, but only the first failure is omitted from the calculation. At the end of each course, the instructor will issue a grade. Clarification about the grade can be obtained by contacting the instructor immediately. For details on the grade review process, please see the Student Handbook.
POLICY ON INCOMPLETE GRADES Incomplete grades shall be assigned by faculty members when a student has not yet completed the work for a course and the faculty member agrees to provide a student more time to finish the course. Students shall have no more than nine weeks from the end of the date of the course to submit any incomplete work to the faculty member. Students who do not finish their incomplete work in the period required will receive an “F” grade. An incomplete grade will be automatically converted to a failing grade nine weeks after the date of the end of the course. 56 | Academic Policies
In order to be eligible for an incomplete grade, a student must: • have already completed at least three quarters of the work in a course, • have a passing grade on the work already submitted in the course, and • sign an Incomplete Grade Agreement that indicates the remaining work to be done, the time frame to accomplish that work, and the consequences of not completing the work on time or in a quality manner.
The Incomplete Grade Agreement shall be signed by the student and faculty member and a copy shall be kept in the student’s file along with the class roster on which the grades are recorded. Incomplete grades are not a substitute for an administrative withdrawal, which is granted by the student affairs manager for a student’s personal or medical circumstance. In addition, incomplete grades: • shall not be given for students who will fail the course due to absences, • cannot be used for a student retaking a final exam (with the exception of a score less than 75 on the National Restaurant Association ServSafe® certification exam), and • will not be included in the calculation of a student’s grade point average (GPA).
POLICY ON AUDITING COURSES The CIA allows auditing of courses to enable students to pursue topics of their interest. Students may audit a course only under the following circumstances: • The student must be currently enrolled in a degree or certificate program, • There is room in the course, • The course is not a required course in the student’s degree or certificate program, • There are no scheduling conflicts, • The course is offered by the college for credit,
• The faculty member has approved the request to audit the course, • The student has paid the audit fee before the class begins, and • The student is in good academic and financial standing.
Externship is not eligible for audit. The auditing fee is $400 per credit. Students who audit courses are expected to attend all classes, but their work will not be evaluated and no record of their participation will be kept. Their transcripts will show that they have audited the course. Students who want to audit courses must make payment to the Bursar’s Office and make scheduling arrangements with the registion manager.
POLICY ON GRADUATION PARTICIPATION Students must complete all of their academic requirements—courses, including externship (for degree students); comprehensive examinations; and other requirements—and maintain a 2.0 cumulative average to graduate and receive their CIA diploma or certificate. In order to participate in graduation ceremonies, students must satisfactorily complete all of their course work and comprehensive exams. Students with any outstanding course work may petition the director of education support to participate in their graduation ceremony. Procedure The director of education support, in conjunction with the registration manager, conducts graduation audits and is responsible for certifying that every student is eligible to participate in graduation. For the AOS degrees, this audit will be conducted during the second semester of the sophomore year. For the certificate programs, the audit will be conducted during the second semester.
The registration manager will contact students who need to complete courses and examinations and notify the Bursar’s Office and Financial Aid Office.

The tool provides online access to all course guides, recipe manuals, syllabi, and support materials for The Culinary Institute of America’s degree and certificate programs. Students can read and study the course material directly online and have the option of downloading and printing all or selected 58 | Academic Policies
portions of these materials. The system also gives students the ability to hyperlink to other pertinent educational resources on the Internet, including links to the CIA’s Digital Video Library. The course management system is just one of many online applications available via CIA Student Web Services that enrich our students’ educational experience. Degree program students may use an online learning environment for selected liberal arts classes.
STATEMENT OF ACADEMIC FREEDOM Faculty members shall be free to teach course information without regard to censorship or any other artificial restraints on free inquiry and learning. Faculty members shall be restricted to dealing with course materials in the classroom environment and shall not use the classroom as a basis for the transmission of information outside of their assigned courses. They shall, however, be free to discuss any controversial issues dealing with their courses without the fear of reprisal, provided that the discussions are related to subjects taught. The CIA has developed standard course materials that faculty members are expected to teach. Faculty members are encouraged to present individual views and alternative materials as a means of supplementing, but not replacing, that standard course material. Academic freedom in the CIA shall not be deemed to permit or condone denigration or demeaning criticisms of other faculty members, staff members, students, the CIA, its programs, or the foodservice and hospitality industry. Freedom of individual conscience, association, and expression shall be encour-
aged and fairness of procedure shall be observed both to safeguard legitimate interests of the CIA and to exhibit by appropriate example the basic objectives of a democratic society.
COLLABORATIVE DEGREE PROGRAM The Culinary Institute of America, the worldâ€™s premier culinary college, and the Cornell School of Hotel Administration, the recognized leader in service and hospitality management, have formed an alliance to offer a collaborative degree program for students with a passion for food and hospitality operations.

At least 15 hours of class lecture or 30 hours of laboratory timeâ€”and the study and homework associated with those class hoursâ€”constitute one semester credit hour. Instructional Program and Schedule While enrolled in this program, students will be assigned to instructional groups of up to 24 students. These groups are scheduled for all lecture and lab classes together as a team to integrate theory and practice while stressing human relations and communication skills. Within this group, students will actively participate in learning assignments, beginning with a sensory analysis of wines and spirits in a systematic, professionally recognized process that gives each student a common language with which to discuss and describe beverages. From this foundation, the program will build essential knowledge of regional grape growing and winemaking techniques, geography and terroir, wine laws and regulations appropriate to each region of the world, gastronomy, and contemporary service topics. Culinary skills will be taught as a means to expand sensory analysis capabilities and as a way to develop a vocabulary to evaluate food in preparation for food and wine pairing exercises throughout the program. Service topics are woven into each class to comprise a modern lesson in hospitality management that can be immediately applicable upon graduation.

POLICIES Notice The policies described here and outlined in the Student Handbook have been established to enhance students’ overall educational and social experience at the CIA. This catalog does not constitute a contract between the college and its students on either a collective or individual basis. An enrollment agreement, always signed on campus by a student, constitutes a contract between the CIA and that student. Course and curricula alterations, modifications to tuition and residence hall fees, and other unforeseen changes sometimes occur after publication of the current catalog and before they can be incorporated into later editions. The CIA reserves the right to alter its curricula, tuition, fees, and policies as needed. These changes will not result in retroactive disqualification for the degree or certificate programs.
EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT The CIA does not release confidential academic and personal information, except under conditions permitted by law, without your written permission. The CIA, upon written request, will grant current or former students access to their educational records, except those excluded by policy, and will provide an opportunity for a hearing to challenge those records. If you are an applicant not yet enrolled and in attendance, you may not waive the confidentiality of your records. This means you 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 you are accepted and enrolled by the CIA. At that time you 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 in Hyde Park and with the student affairs manager at Greystone.
90 | Policies
The CIA does not return any materials sent as part of the admission review process. Do not submit original diplomas and certificates, as they will not be returned.
PUBLIC NOTICE OF RIGHTS UNDER THE FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 affords you certain rights with respect to your education records. They are: 1. The right to inspect and review your education records within 45 days of the day the college receives a request for access. You should submit to the Registrar’s Office—or other appropriate official—written requests that identify the record(s) you wish to inspect. The appropriate official will make arrangements for access and notify you of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the appropriate official to whom the request was submitted does not maintain the records, that official shall advise you of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
2. The right to request the amendment of your education records that you believe are inaccurate or misleading. You may ask the college to amend a record that you believe is inaccurate or misleading. You should write the appropriate official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record you want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If The Culinary Institute decides not to amend the record as you requested, the college will notify you of the decision and advise you of your right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding hearing procedures will be provided to you when you are notified of the right to a hearing. 3. The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in your education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. The Culinary Institute of America does not release information from your record to outside individuals unless you grant permission. However, the release of certain types of information—“directory information” which is not generally considered harmful or an invasion of privacy—may be released. The information includes name, address, program of study, dates of attendance, and degrees or certificates obtained with dates. Addresses are only released for awards and/or scholarship purposes. The Culinary Institute of America is permitted to release such information unless you specifically request that it not be released within two weeks after you commence each semester. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school offi-
cials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the college in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the college has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. 4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by The Culinary Institute of America to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 600 Independence Avenue, SW Washington, DC 20202-4605 Copies of The Culinary Institute of America’s policy governing the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act are available in the Registrar’s Office. Questions concerning FERPA should be referred to the registrar at the CIA in Hyde Park and with the student affairs manager at Greystone.
STATEMENT ON CAMPUS CLIMATE The Culinary Institute of America, with its international faculty and emphasis on cuisines from around the world, values the diversity of its students and is committed to providing an encouraging campus and classroom atmosphere that inspires the Policies | 91
participation of all students. The CIA celebrates the differences students, faculty, and staff bring to the campus. Only with this diversity of knowledge and people can we effectively address the challenges of an increasingly multicultural society and the ever-growing foodservice and hospitality industry. It is the responsibility of faculty and staff members to review their classroom and campus behaviors, and those of any staff they supervise, to ensure students are encouraged, valued, and receive equitable treatment and evaluation regardless of individual differences.
STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT You are responsible for becoming familiar with the CIA’s policies and regulations governing student life. The Student Code of Conduct promotes the necessary order, safety, and security of the CIA community and safeguards the individual and collective rights of everyone on campus. Actions by individuals or groups that interfere with the orderly functions of the college or actions that endanger any member of the community will not be tolerated. Individual expression, rights, and privacy are respected and valued; however, students are expected to conduct themselves in adherence to the policies described in the Student Handbook. STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY The Culinary Institute of America provides a realistic learning environment for each of its students. As a CIA student, you’ll be required to participate in a variety of “hands-on” experiences on and off campus, consistent with training in the culinary and baking and pastry arts, and to assume the risks and responsibilities inherent in the educational process. 92 | Policies
Observation and application experiences may at times involve dangers and hazards to which professionals in the foodservice field are exposed, along with the normal risks of functioning in American society. Although the CIA can assume no responsibility for any of these risks, we do attempt to provide a safe environment and to instruct you in safe practices and procedures. However, none of us are immune to injury in the course of our daily lives, work, or field of study, so you should conduct yourself with due and reasonable care in your actions. If a particular educational experience is either a course, degree, or certificate requirement or a voluntary extracurricular activity, you must decide whether or not to participate and expose yourself to its possible hazards. If you choose not to participate in a required activity, however, you may fail to satisfy the course, degree, or certificate requirements. You may wish to discuss the risks noted above with the faculty or staff supervisor of the activity in which you’re participating.
STUDENT CONCERNS Many times when you have a concern, you can resolve it on your own by speaking with the party involved. If, however, after speaking with the student or employee about your concern, you do not feel the matter is addressed, or if you are concerned about an administrative process or procedure, you may see the following college officials: Civil Rights Concerns Refer to the Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Discrimination Policy in the Student Handbook. • Human Resources Manager
Curriculum and Faculty Concerns • Dean of Education
Financial Concerns • Bursar’s Office in Hyde Park , NY • Director—Financial Aid in Hyde Park, NY
Registration and Course Scheduling Concerns • Registration Manager • Registrar’s Office in Hyde Park ,NY
Residence Life Concerns • Director—Residence Life
HARASSMENT, SEXUAL MISCONDUCT, AND DISCRIMINATION POLICY Members of The Culinary Institute of America community, guests, and visitors have the right to be free from harassment, sexual misconduct, and discrimination. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The full version of this policy can be found at www.ciachef.edu on the Consumer Information page.
• Residence Directors
General Student Concerns • Dean of Education • Director—Education Support • Associate Vice President and Dean— Student Affairs in Hyde Park, NY; Hot Line number 845-905-4255
In the event that you are unable to resolve your concern by working with the above individuals, you may need to take further action by following the Complaint and Grievance Procedure. This procedure is part of the Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Discrimination Policy, which can be found in the Student Handbook and the Consumer Information page at www.ciachef.edu.
HARASSMENT-FREE CAMPUS STATEMENT The CIA is committed to providing a campus environment free of harassment. The Harassment-Free Campus Statement can be found on the Consumer Information page of the CIA website (www.ciachef.edu).
COMPLAINT AND GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE This procedure is applied to all civil rights grievances and discrimination complaints, especially those governed by Title IX and other state and federal laws. The Complaint and Grievance Procedure is outlined in the Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, and Discrimination Policy, and can be read in its entirety at www.ciachef.edu on the Consumer Information page. ALCOHOL AND DRUGS The Culinary Institute of America is committed to the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse. Our policy supports the Institute’s philosophy to promote healthy lifestyles for its students and to inhibit the abuse of alcohol and other substances. No one may use, possess, sell, or distribute drugs or other illegal substances, nor may anyone use or possess drug paraphernalia on Institute property or at any CIAsponsored events, except drugs as prescribed by a physician. Throughout this policy, the term “other substances” refers to illegal substances including, but not limited to, marijuana, cocaine, LSD, PCP, amphetamines, heroin, look-alikes, and any of those Policies | 93
substances commonly referred to as “designer drugs.” The inappropriate use of prescription and over-the-counter drugs is also prohibited. With three exceptions, public consumption of alcoholic beverages in CIA-owned and operated facilities and properties is strictly prohibited. The exceptions are as follows: when consumption is part of the course within the classroom, during specifically approved college functions, and in the CIA’s public restaurant. At no time may a student under the age of 21 consume alcohol. The Institute supports and is subject to the laws of Napa County and the State of California. All Institute policies and procedures must conform to local and state laws governing the service and consumption of alcohol. The possession, solicitation, sale, and/or use of illegal drugs is unconditionally prohibited. Violations will result in suspension and possible dismissal from the college.
STUDENT TUITION RECOVERY FUND The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by California residents who were students attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education. You may be eligible for STRF if you are a California resident and have prepaid tuition, paid the STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following: 1.

STUDENT HANDBOOK You’ll receive the Student Handbook, a guide to campus life, when you arrive on campus. This handy guide explains CIA rules and lists services and activities. The handbook is available through the student affairs manager. CIA-OWNED HOUSING Students have the option of living on campus in one of three residence halls on a space-available basis, provided the college has received their housing application at least 30 days prior to their entry date. The housing application is included in the registration packet sent to students following their admission to the college. Students may either mail in the completed housing application to the CIA at Greystone or fax it to 707-967-2410. Please note that there are no on-campus accommodations for married couples. The college requires students to vacate the halls during major school vacation periods.
DRESS CODE There is a required dress code for all CIA classes. Please refer to the Professionalism, Uniform, and Hygiene Policy section in the Student Handbook for detailed information on the dress code at the CIA. CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT The CIA at Greystone welcomes hundreds of visitors every day—parents, guests, tourists, recruiters, prospective students, and others. Their first impression of the college can be positively or negatively affected by the cleanliness of the buildings and campus grounds. Make it your personal responsibility to see that our campus and residence halls always look their best. It’s easy to say, “I didn’t do it” when approaching spills or litter, but it’s your duty to clean it or pick it up and keep our campus beautiful.
