Financial Aid

Types of Aid

Ithaca College participates in a wide variety of aid programs designed to meet the needs of most students. These include Federal, state (such as New York, Vermont, Delaware, and Rhode Island), and our own institutional aid programs. All applicants and continuing students are eligible to apply for aid programs that are available as scholarships, grants, loans, and work. Tax incentives may also apply for some families.
