Welcome to the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance

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 responses to construct a personalized schedule that includes:

  • At least one course in your major or the pre-health professions program 
  • Your required first-year Ithaca Seminar
  • One or two elective or core curriculum courses that will help you meet your graduation requirements, learn transferable skills, and explore some new subjects that align with your interests.
  • A total of 13 to 16 credits. (Although your tuition covers up to 18 credits, we advise that you NOT exceed 13 to 16 credits in your first semester so you can be most successful in and outside of class.)
Complete Your Academic Interests Survey

Access your New Student Checklist and Academic Interests Survey via IC Connect. Complete your Academic Interests Survey by June 12 to ensure that you’ll be placed in courses that meet your needs and reflect your interests.

Access Your Student Checklist
First-Year Students

We will provide you with access to your fully completed schedule during the week of August 5. (Even if you see before then via Ithaca College’s systems that you are registered for some classes, your schedule is not official until we notify you in early August.)

You will be assigned a faculty advisor in August, prior to the start of orientation. If you have questions before then, email hshpdean@ithaca.edu.

Transfer Students

In the coming weeks, you will be contacted by the dean’s office to schedule an individual advising appointment with the chair of your department. At this appointment, we will work together to create your schedule and academic plan based on your transfer credit and expected graduation date.
