Student Resources

Culinary Institute of St. Louis' goal is to provide our students with the tools they need to succeed.

We try to take a personal approach to everything we do, beginning with the first admissions visit through to our career placement services.

Some of our student-focused resources include:

You’ll be paired with an admissions representative who will work closely with you throughout the admissions process

Education Department:  
The Education Department’s goal is to see every student succeed academically.  In addition to teaching resources and support for extra help, academic advising is readily available and staff can direct students to a variety of on and off campus resources.  

Financial Aid:   
The Financial Aid staff is involved with students beginning with their application, continuing throughout their time at Culinary Institute of St. Louis, and even after graduation.   Our students and their families have a partner in helping to understand the financial investment in their education. 

Career Services:  
Students begin to work one-on-one with a Career Services professional near the end of their program. Our staff assists students in developing resumes and practicing interview skills. When the time comes, staff can help locate job opportunities, arrange interviews and assist in salary negotiations.  Career services are available to alumni throughout their careers.

Culinary Institute of St. Louis students have a variety of opportunities for culinary-related extracurricular activities. For example, there are competition teams, Bee Keeping Club, Garden Club, and Student Council. Students also have the opportunity to volunteer at many events in the community and there are many fundraising opportunities. 

Student Resource Library: 
The library provides students with relevant reference books, periodicals, and specialized program-related materials. Culinary Institute of St. Louis students have access to on-campus computers and internet access. Many students use the library as a place to study.

Student Services for Students with Disabilities:
Hickey College is committed to providing appropriate reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities as required under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Since the scope and types of disabilities are varied, students requesting accommodation will work individually with the school's Director of Education or designated coordinator on an appropriate plan. It is the student's responsibility to contact the Director of Education to begin the process.
