Integral education is the synthesis of intellectual, experiential and applied learning. Our approach to admissions is just as holistic. Combining personal consultation with campus/class visits and application and financial aid review, we aim to ensure enrollment as soon as possible.

Applying to CIIS

California Institute of Integral Studies actively seeks a diverse student body, one whose varied backgrounds, experiences, and interests help cultivate a rich and rewarding educational experience for all. Decisions regarding admission are based on consideration of (1) the applicant's potential for success in the chosen field of study based upon past academic/professional achievement, maturity, and motivation for educational and personal development; and (2) the congruence of the applicant's interests with the philosophy and purpose of the program and Institute.
