Tipping Policy

A key component of the education process at the CIA is learning how to deliver outstanding service. Students at The Culinary Institute of America are not permitted to accept tips, in accordance with IRS regulations and the CIA Student Code of Conduct. We thank you for honoring the “no tipping” policy, and for giving our students the opportunity to serve you. However, we do include a 20% Student Support Surcharge on each check which is returned to our students through scholarships, support of student activities, and the purchase of graduation jackets. Thank you for helping to support the educational mission of the CIA.
