IC Advantage

Welcome to your first learning experience as an Ithaca College (IC) student.

Take one, two, or even three one-credit courses. (The first one's free!)

Take advantage of this online summer initiative to welcome you to Ithaca College’s intellectual community and equip you for a successful transition to Ithaca College. One foundation course is free; take up to two additional courses for just $155 each—a significant discount off the usual per credit cost of $600. (Charges will be added as appropriate to your fall semester bill.)

Foundation courses and Deep Dive courses for incoming students will meet twice per week over summer session two (July 10-August 11, 2023)—Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday—for 75 minutes and will be graded pass/fail.
