Park School Advising

Due to COVID-19, all advising will be done remotely. Many advisors will be doing Zoom meetings, phone calls or other variations of virtual advising for student's who are interested.

REGISTRATION shouldn’t equal FRUSTRATION

Helpful tips to have a smooth sign-up

  1. Timestamps for registration can be found under Registration Notifications in the upper right hand corner of Homer Connect.
  2. Students DO NOT NEED A RAC!
  3. Be sure you hit the SUBMIT button when adding a class. If it says PENDING- that means you are NOT registered!
  4. Waitlist IS NOT A GUARANTEE! Watch the other sections, in case a seat opens up.
  5. Course Overrides WILL NOT allow you to go over cap in a class! They will only lift restrictions for pre-requisites, class standing or major/minor restrictions. If a class is at capacity and a course override is approved, you will only be able to register for the waitlist, if there are still openings.
  6. Capacity Overrides- You must submit a Capacity Override Exceptional Issues (Found on the Registrar’s website) – These will be highly scrutinized and are ONLY to be used if you feel this will affect your graduation date.
  7. Electronic forms for change of major/concentration and course override request can be found on IC Workflow. All other forms can be found at ithaca.edu/registrar.

DEAN’S LIST

The dean’s list in the Roy H. Park School of Communications is made up of majors in each class who meet all the following criteria during the semester:

  • a minimum semester GPA of 3.70
  • completion of a minimum of 15 credits, of which at least 12 are graded, not pass/fail or Satisfactory/D/F option
  • no final grades of D, F, or I (incomplete)

The dean’s list status, awarded each semester, is based on a student’s semester GPA rather than the cumulative GPA for all semesters the student has attended Ithaca College.
