news about the expected reduced 2018-19 Cost of Attendance

CIM announced in September 2017 a tuition reset for students matriculating in a new program in 2018-19. This reset involves a 15% reduction, changing tuition to $40,000 compared to $47,200 in 2017-18. The full 2018-19 Cost of Attendance budget will be published here at a later date, and will be significantly less for new students than the published cost for 2017-18, which is linked below. Current CIM students returning to the same program for 2018-19 will see no increase in their tuition fee, which will remain $47,200—the second year in a row without an increase. 

The cost of attendance for new and returning CIM conservatory students is outlined below:
