You are not required to have a computer for your first year at CIA; we recommend that you hold off on any computer purchase until just before your second year. Several factors contribute to this recommendation.
- Your major does not start until the 2nd year. Computer needs will vary, depending on the major. After you are accepted into a major, we recommend that you discuss specific needs with your academic department.
- You will receive an iPad at orientation. Default apps for word processing, drawing/ painting and presentations are provided by the CIA.
- Computers are available in open labs and the library.
