Title

Welcome to the Ithaca College Department of Theatre Arts Handbook!  

This handbook is a collection of both resources for students detailing campus and department policies, as well as documents which outline the privileges and responsibilities of being a part of our Department. It is important that all students, faculty and staff take the time to familiarize themselves with the materials in this handbook. 

We will make every effort to notify students, faculty and staff when an official change in policy or procedure has been made, but members of the department are responsible for their own up-to-date knowledge of our policies.

If students have concerns or need clarification on any policies they should first seek out the degree coordinator for their degree program and/or their academic advisor. A list of current degree coordinators can be found on the departmental faculty listing.  

Please let us know if you have any questions, or if you have suggestions for how this handbook can be improved.
