The food court, located in the Campus Center, offers a wide variety of food at modest prices. You may also buy fixed-price meals in the campus dining halls. Meal plans may also be available.

Financial Aid

Unfortunately, financial aid is not available to students who are registered on a nondegree basis. The College does, however, offer comprehensive financial aid packages to eligible full-time and part-time students who have been admitted to degree study (matriculated) at Ithaca. If you plan to become a matriculated student and are concerned about financing your education, contact the student financial services office at 607-274-3131.

Health insurance is unfortunately also unavailable for students who are registered on a nondegree basis. For further information about the health center facility and services please contact us at (607) 274-3177.

Housing

Ithaca College does not offer housing for extramural (nondegree) students; however, rental options in and around the Ithaca area may be found on craigslist or through Cornell's off-campus housing service.

Library

The Ithaca College library, located in Gannett Center, offers numerous services and information resources in electronic and print formats, including books, periodicals, compact discs, phonograph records, audiotapes, and videotapes. An online catalog is available to locate materials. You can search the catalog in the library or your personal computer. Reference librarians are also available to assist you. You will find that these helpful individuals can provide tips on how to use various print and electronic resources, direct you to appropriate materials, and recommend research strategies.

Parking

When you first visit the Office of Extended Studies, use the Visitor Lot. After you complete your course registration, you should register your vehicle with Parking Services. You will need a photocopy of your current vehicle registration and an Ithaca College photo ID. The fee to register a vehicle to park on campus is $64 per semester, or $128 per year. (There is no charge for summer parking.) After your vehicle is properly registered, all student (red) lots are available for your use. For your convenience, you can also register your vehicle online using your Ithaca College Netpass Username and Password (an Ithaca College Netpass account will be provided to you as part of the registration process).

Campus recreational facilities are available to students. They include a state-of-the-art fitness center, which houses an exercise area, an aerobics studio, an indoor climbing wall, and two gymnasiums; and the indoor swimming pool in Hill Center. Outside are a track, tennis courts, and, during the summer, a pool.
