As CIM embraces our mission to empower the world's most talented classical music students, we understand that applying for college can be full of obstacles. CIM does not want an application fee to be the reason you decide to take CIM off your list.

Your application and fee waiver request must be completed by December 1. Application fee waivers are not guaranteed and not all requests will be granted.

Please use the drop-down boxes below to prepare your materials for a fee waiver. To access the CIM fee waiver request form, you must have started an application.
