We understand that you are a key partner in financing a college education and the following information will navigate the financial aid process:

  • Know that most communication from CIM goes directly to the student's CIM email address (once enrolled) and this includes the billing statements.
  • Dependency status for aid purposes is not necessarily the same as for tax purposes. To understand how dependency status is determined for federal student aid, please click here.

FERPA: Most student records are confidential and protected by federal privacy laws. Current and newly confirmed students must give written consent to CIM before we are permitted to discuss any student-specific information (such as tuition balance, financial aid, grades, etc.) to a parent, spouse or any other person. Please see CIM's FERPA Policy.
