Application Process


A statement of purpose is required for admission. The statement will be requested within the online application; you do not need to supply it separately. Your statement should describe your educational or professional experience related to communications as well as your goals in pursuing graduate study in this field at Ithaca College.

Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis, with preference given to those who apply by February 15 for fall admission; December 1 for spring.

The GRE exam is not required for admission into the communications program.

If you are an international student, you must submit your TOEFL or IELTS exam scores. If you have attended an English speaking college or university, we may waive this requirement.

The deadline to have your file completed if applying for an assistantship is March 6.
