Welcome Parents and Families

Parents have an important role in the education of their son or daughter. We encourage open communication between students and parents concerning all aspects of a student's academic program, their grades, general academic progress and life at IC. We believe that the student is ultimately responsible for their success. You can help by promoting and encouraging their self-reliance, and by always going through them to find answers to your questions.  Some of you may already know that we do not print or mail grades.  Students view their grades, GPA,  class schedule, and more through HomerConnect and should share that information with you, as appropriate.

It is our hope that your student will thoroughly enjoy both the academic experience and student life here at Ithaca College.  You can help by showing your support.  Here are a couple of ideas:
