Log In Instructions

If you have not begun the financial aid application process, you can get started by completing the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Enter our school code, 003982, on your application and we will receive a copy within 1-3 business days. Provided you have been accepted to the Cleveland Institute of Art, at the point that the Office of Financial Aid receives your FAFSA, we will create your initial Financial Aid Award Letter, your CIA ID will be provided, and you will have access to Net Partner.
