Welcome to the Roy H. Park School of Communications

Here's how to get your best fall class schedule.

First-year Students

Ithaca College’s team of academic advising experts will use your Academic Interests Survey answers to construct a personalized schedule that includes:

  • At least one course in your major or pathway 
  • Your required first-year seminar (Ithaca Seminar)
  • In some cases, you’ll also have an elective or core curriculum course that helps you meet graduation requirements, learn transferrable skills, and explore some new subjects that align with your interests.
  • A total of 14–16 credits. Even though your tuition covers up to 18 credits per semester, we advise that you NOT exceed the credits in your fall schedule so you can be most successful in your first semester.

Complete Your Academic Interests Survey

Don't forget—you can access your New Student Checklist and Academic Interests Survey through IC Connect. Your Academic Interests Survey should be completed by June 15 in order to ensure that you’ll be placed in courses that meet your needs and interests.

Final Schedules for First-Year Students

Your final schedule will be available August 1. During orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet with an advisor or your dean’s office to make limited adjustments, if needed.

Transfer Students

Please schedule a Zoom, phone, or in-person meeting between May 15 and June 30 so we can review the classes you are transferring in and plan your fall class schedule together.
