Transfer Students

There are two types of transfer students: internal (current Ithaca College students) and external (applying from another institution). If applying for spring admittance, applicants must audition during the first audition date in December. Admission to the spring semester is largely dependent upon the enrollment needs in certain instrument areas and/or degree programs.

All transfer students (including minors) must complete the Undergraduate Application Process (Internal Transfer applicants should skip Step 2).

Additional Requirements for Transfer Students

In addition to all the application and audition requirements, transfer students must complete the following items:

  • External transfer students must complete the Transfer Release Form (provided below) in order to be considered for financial aid, including scholarships.
  • Internal transfer students must submit a copy of their Ithaca College transcripts with their application materials.
