Welcome to the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance!

Set yourself up for academic success this fall.

Welcome to the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance (MTD). We are thrilled that you will be joining our community of performers, scholars, technicians, educators, and artists! At MTD, we believe that music, theatre, and dance really are Better Together, and the innovative thinkers and trailblazers you will soon be engaging with are proactively collaborating to push the performing arts forward. Our faculty and staff are committed to ensuring an inspiring learning environment for our talented students and we are excited about the opportunities you will soon have to connect with fellow students in our School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, and across Ithaca College. We cannot wait to see you in August! In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to our Dean's Office with any questions as you prepare.

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 MTDacademicsupport@ithaca.edu.

Transfer Students

In the coming weeks, you will be contacted by a representative from the dean’s office to assist you with your individual degree plan and course registration. You will meet your faculty academic advisor in August during orientation and will have the opportunity to make any necessary adjustments.
