Student Information

Admission

Admission to Ithaca College is selective. Applicants are carefully considered on the basis of individual qualifications, both academic and nonacademic. No decision to deny admission will be based on age, color, disability, handicap, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or military status.

Most students have followed traditional college preparation programs in secondary school; however, applicants from nontraditional schools are encouraged to apply. Applicants are required to furnish official transcripts of all their secondary school and college-level coursework, a report of SAT or ACT scores from the appropriate testing agency, and letters of reference. Auditions, portfolio reviews, and interviews are also required in certain programs.

Students who are interested in entering college early or who wish to take time off between high school and college may obtain information on early or deferred admission. Details of early decision, transfer admission, advanced placement, and special requirements for specific programs are given in the Ithaca College admission prospectus, which is available from the Office of Admission.

Freshmen and transfer candidates may apply for admission for the fall or spring semester. Prospective freshmen should apply in the fall of their senior year of secondary school, no later than March 1 for the fall semester, and no later than December 1 for the spring semester. Transfers should submit their application early in the semester prior to entry, and no later than February 1 for fall or December 1 for spring admission. Application forms may be obtained by writing the Office of Admission, Ithaca College, 100 Job Hall, Ithaca, NY 14850-7020, by calling 800-429-4274 or 607-274-3124, by fax at 607-274-1900, or e-mail at admission@ithaca.edu. Applications may be submitted online at www.ithaca.edu/admission. Ithaca College also accepts the Common Application and requires a supplemental form.

A special orientation program is held for new students. Since academic advising and registration are an integral part of this program, it is essential that all new students attend. Details of dates, costs that may be involved, and the program itself are provided to new students by the director of first year programs.

Applicants whose first language is not English are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) by arrangement with the Educational Testing Service. The test scores must be reported directly by the testing organization to the undergraduate admission office. A satisfactory command of English is essential for successful undergraduate study. Applicants are expected to achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 550 on the paper version, or 213 on the computer version. A score of 600 or its equivalent on the verbal section of the SAT exempts applicants from the TOEFL test requirement. If TOEFL bulletins and registration forms are not available locally, they may be obtained by writing to Test of English as a Foreign Language, Box 6154, Princeton, NJ 08541-6154, or by calling 609-951-1100.

Visitors are always welcome at Ithaca College. Campus tours are conducted hourly from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on weekdays and from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on most Saturdays while the College is in session. Interviews and tours are also available throughout the summer. Visitors are encouraged to contact the Office of Admission for assistance with their plans prior to their visit. Tours depart from the admission office in Job Hall.
