Find A Course and Follow the Steps to Register

Finding a Course of Interest

1. Click on this link to view Ithaca College's course roster by semester. 

2. Once you have found a course, click on the course title link (found in the course title section) to find the textbook information, restrictions, meeting times, seat availability, prerequisites, etc.

3. Review seat availability under the Status field. If there are seats available on the day your registration form is processed, then you will be allowed to register for the course. If there are no seats available, the course is no longer open for registration. Waitlist seats (usually capped at five) indicate the number of students who are in line for seats over the maximum capacity for the course. A waitlist of more than 0 indicates that the course is already over capacity, and other courses should be considered. Seat availability is subject to change throughout the registration period.

Normally, students in nondegree study register for only one or two courses per semester. If you intend to register for more than two courses, approval from the Director of Extended Studies is required. You will be advised of additional approvals where necessary. Email to set up a meeting or phone call.

Academic Advising Support

If you want to talk more in-depth about a course and its prerequisites, then reach out to the instructor.

Online Course Restrictions

Due to state licensing of online education we cannot accept online extramural students resident in Massachusetts while the online course is in session.
