Welcome to Ithaca College

A few different ways that we will welcome you to South Hill.

The Office of the Provost typically holds a graduate student welcome and reception in August each year. Given the different start dates for our graduate programs, it is possible that this welcome may occur after the official start date for your program and classes. We encourage you to attend even if your coursework has already begun so that you have an opportunity to meet additional faculty, staff, and students from across the campus.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact the Office of the Provost at (607) 274-3113. Requests for accommodations should be made as soon as possible.

Program Orientation (At Program Start)

In addition to the College welcome, each graduate program typically offers a program-specific orientation just before your coursework begins. Information about these orientation sessions will be shared with you directly by your program. If you have questions regarding your graduate program, please reach out directly to your program director for assistance.
