Travel Assistance

The Alumni Engagement Office makes recommendations for financial assistance for travel expenses related to professional development or employment opportunities. 

Eligibility & Availability

Financial assistance is available to full-time students in the last year of their studies at CIM and to all CIM alumni. Students can apply for travel assistance for professional job interviews and auditions. Alumni can apply for travel assistance for professional job interviews, auditions and competitions.  

Travel assistance funding is not available for any opportunity where the student/alumnus is paid to attend, regardless of the size of the payment. 

Each award is limited to $300 on a first come, first served basis. Each person may receive the award only once.

Decisions will be based on merit and suitability of the event. Final decisions based on the eligibility criteria will be made by one representative of the previous year’s Alumni Association board, in consult with Alumni Engagement.  

Teacher Recommendation

Student applicants—and alumni applicants who are also current students—require a recommendation from the applicant’s primary CIM teacher and the Dean’s Office. Alumni applicants will not be required to submit a teacher recommendation, but will require confirmation of alumni status. 


Complete an application and email the completed form along with your resume to Alisa Andrews. You can also visit the Dean's Office and obtain a hard copy. Each member of a chamber ensemble must submit a separate application. Requests may be retroactive to the event. Recipients are required to write a thank you note to the Alumni Engagement Office indicating the outcome of the event. Please note, available funds are limited. 

Transcript Request

CIM transcripts are ordered through Parchment, a secure website specializing in transcript exchange. Set up your user account in Parchment and order your transcripts today. 

It is CIM policy to include academic information from all programs and degrees on requested transcripts. Transcripts are processed on Fridays. However, during peak periods, such as after graduation or during application deadlines, requests will be processed daily. Express service will only speed up the delivery of your transcript, not the processing time. For an unofficial transcript, please access your Self-Service account and print your unofficial transcript.

If you have questions, please email
