Welcome to your transfer summer orientation guide. All transfer students must attend the one-day mandatory transfer orientation. However, there is an optional extended transfer orientation for students seeking a more traditional overnight orientation experience.

  • Sunday, June 15 - Extended Transfer Orientation (optional)
  • Monday, June 16 - Mandatory Transfer Orientation

Review the information in each section below carefully and contact us with any questions you have along the way. We look forward to meeting you this summer!

What to expect when you move to Ithaca in August.

Fall Welcome is IC's three-day, continuing orientation program for all new and transfer students. After moving into your residence hall and meeting your new roommate(s) on Sunday, everyone attends the Fall Welcome Kick-Off BBQ with their floor.

An updated Fall Welcome schedule will be available on the First-Year Experience website. Fall Welcome program highlights include:

Housing Check-In 
First floor meetings 
Destination: Ithaca (social)

Transfer student breakfast 
Dean's Welcome 
Campus wide social

College 101 Workshops
ALANA Community Welcome BBQ
Transfer Student Meet 'n Greet

Off-Campus Transfer Students:
If you live off-campus, it is equally as important for you to make connections and take advantage of the involvement opportunities during Fall Welcome. As you will not have a floor meeting to discuss Fall Welcome programs, make sure to visit the Fall Welcome website in August for a complete schedule.

You will find important information about Move-In day, Fall Welcome, and other details that will help make your transition to Ithaca College smooth. This site will be updated by the beginning of August.
