Apply to Ithaca

Transfer Students

Each fall some 600 students apply to Ithaca from other colleges and universities. No matter what your reason for transferring to Ithaca may be, you can count on getting the help you need every step of the way, from scheduling a visit to completing your application.

High school graduates who have earned nine or more college credits or have enrolled full-time at another college are considered transfer students. You can apply anytime, but for most programs, your final year must be completed at Ithaca. Some programs, such as physical therapy, have different requirements.

Getting Credit

You can normally get transfer credit for college-level courses taken at a regionally accredited college or university, provided a grade of C- or better was earned. Each course is individually evaluated, and Ithaca reserves the right to disallow unacceptable courses.
