Academic Services

The Office of Academic Services, located in Suite 120, provides academic advising on a walk-in basis and by appointment. Please note that appointments take precedent. 

Advising is a developmental process at the Cleveland Institute of Art. We encourage students to be proactive self-advocates while working towards their academic goals. Our dedicated advising professionals work closely with students to explore their talents in both the studios and liberal arts classrooms.
