For Transfer Students
The information below is designed to provide basic information about the Integrative Core Curriculum (ICC) as it applies to transfer students entering Ithaca College in fall 2013 or later.
Note: The information below applies only to students admitted to Ithaca College as transfer students.
ICC Seminar for Transfer Students
Beginning in fall 2013, all incoming transfer students will complete a transfer student seminar during their first semester of enrollment at Ithaca College. This requirement is in lieu of the 4-credit Ithaca Seminar completed by first time, first semester students. This variable credit (0 – 1 credit hours) course addresses the value of integrative learning, introduces you to the Ithaca College community, and helps you develop a plan for completing your degree. During the seminar, you also begin creating your electronic learning portfolio. This seminar is likely different from seminars you may have completed at a prior institution because it focuses on introducing you to Ithaca College instead of to college in general.
ICC Requirements for Students Admitted to Ithaca College as Transfer Students
- Transfer students entering Ithaca College with a completed Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, or bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university will be considered to have fulfilled the ICC themes and perspectives, diversity, quantitative literacy, writing intensive, and first year composition requirements. Such students will be required to complete only the ICC transfer seminar, electronic learning portfolio, and ICC capstone requirements. Regardless of previous degree, transfer students must meet all requirements for their specific degree program, including degree specific complementary liberal arts requirements.
- Transfer students may be credited with fulfilling ICC requirements based on other courses completed at regionally accredited colleges or universities. Such determination will be made on review of the student’s transcript upon acceptance to Ithaca College.
- Transfer students may apply credits granted on the basis of AP/IB or other standardized test scores accepted by Ithaca College toward fulfillment of the following ICC components: First Year Composition, Quantitative Literacy, Diversity, and Writing Intensive. Such credits may also apply to the 12 Complementary Liberal Arts credits depending on school and department requirements. The degree to which such credits will apply to a specific ICC requirement is dependent on the match between the test score and specific course(s) for which Ithaca College awards credit. Students may not apply credits granted on the basis of AP/IB score or any other standardized examination program from which Ithaca College awards credit toward fulfillment of the Themes and Perspectives or ICC capstone components of the ICC.
