    Transfer Credit Policy

    Applicable transfer credits may include those for specific majors as well as exam results, work experience, military courses, and life achievement courses.

    Due to the highly specialized nature of the CIA’s culinary education, only business management and liberal arts courses will be considered for transfer credit approval. We do not accept transfer credits for culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, or hospitality and service management (restaurant) courses.
