Photographs

Ithaca College and its representatives on occasion take photographs for the College's use in print and electronic publications.

Accuracy

Every effort has been made to ensure that the information in this catalog is accurate and complete as of May 15, 2006. However, errors are possible and changes such as the addition or cancellation of courses may occur during the academic year. The College reserves the right to correct these or other errors in the catalog and to make changes in degree requirements, course offering regulations, and procedures as educational or financial considerations require. For the most up-to-date information, contact the appropriate department offices.

About This Catalog

The requirements specified in this catalog apply to students who commence their studies at Ithaca College during the 2006-2007 academic year and who remain in continuous enrollment at the institution until they graduate. If requirements are changed, students may elect to comply with the new requirements or to remain under the requirements by which they are governed at the time of the change. The choice must be declared at the time of the student's graduation review with the registrar's office.

Students who change their major are bound by the regulations for their new major that are in effect the semester they officially begin studies in that program.

Students who withdraw and are subsequently readmitted are bound by program and degree requirements in force during the academic year in which they are readmitted. See the statement on return after suspension under "Academic Standards."
