The first day of fall semester classes at Ithaca College is Wednesday, August 26. However, students and faculty members should follow their Monday class schedules for that first day of classes only. All other instructional days follow the ordinary schedules.
The College must follow the Monday class schedules on that first day to compensate for observing the Labor Day holiday later in the semester and meet the minimum requirements for class hours established by the New York State Education Department.
Best wishes for a smooth and productive semester.
