Internal Transfer into the School of Humanities and Sciences
All Ithaca College students are required to remain, for at least one semester, in the School in which they were originally admitted. Thereafter, it is possible to transfer into the School of Humanities and Sciences on two different bases: through the third semester as an Exploratory student or in any semester as a major in one of the humanities and sciences disciplines. Students wishing to transfer must meet the minimum academic standards of the School: a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 and completion of at least 12 credits each semester and at least 24 credits in each 12-month period. Also, they must have achieved a grade point average of 2.00 for the semester before the transfer and have at least a 2.00 grade point average in all humanities and sciences courses they have completed. Students may submit change of school forms at any time. However, there is a moratorium on processing the forms during the advising and online registration periods each semester.
Admission procedure: A Change of School form must be submitted to the Dean’s Office in the School of Humanities and Sciences. Prior to submitting the forms to the Dean’s Office, students must consult with the chair of the department to which a transfer is requested.
Students should seek additional information about the internal transfer process from the School of Humanities and Sciences’ Academic Advising Office, located in Muller 201. Kathy Lucas, Assistant Dean for Student Services, in the School of Humanities and Sciences, is the contact person for information pertaining to the School’s internal transfer process.
