Frequently Asked Questions

What matters in my application?

We engage in a holistic review of each application.  We are most focused on the rigor of your curriculum and the level of success you’ve demonstrated in your academic work.  We take into consideration your recommendations, essay, and extracurricular activities.  If class rank or standardized test scores are provided, we include those in our review as well.

Engagement is at the core of an Ithaca College education -- the students who are most successful at IC are those who are engaged, in and out of the classroom.  We take into account your demonstrated interest in, and engagement with IC when we consider your application.  

Ways to engage with us include connecting with an admission representative, participating in our online community ICPeers, and visiting our campus.  It is important for you to research the colleges you’re considering, and in the process we’ll get to know you better.
