Frequently Asked Questions
My friend in one of the professional schools at Ithaca College has a different requirement for completing the CLA. Why?
Every student who enters Ithaca College from Fall 2013 forward will need to complete the twelve complementary liberal arts credits that are part of the Integrative Core Curriculum. These twelve liberal arts credits are called the “Complementary Liberal Arts” (CLA) credits across the college. In the School of Humanities and Sciences, the CLA is structured by the H&S CLA guidelines. Other schools at Ithaca College have adopted different guidelines for students to use to fulfill these same twelve liberal arts credits.
