FALL 2024

Academic Calendar

The Office of the Registrar maintains the academic calendar for every fall/spring semester and winter/spring sessions. Please review the calendar carefully to find important dates, including the first day of class, the last day to drop or withdraw from a class, refund dates, and more. 

Fees and Course Tuition

Registration Fee

A non-refundable registration fee of $50 per undergraduate or graduate course is required before non-degree enrollment. This fee is in addition to the course tuition fee. Instructions on paying the fee will be provided once registration is approved. 

Registration fees are waived for IC alumni, IC retirees, Longview staff and residents, IC employees, and students receiving the IC tuition remission benefit. Registration fees do not apply to students enrolling at IC through an official Ithaca College exchange program such as the Ithaca College-Cornell University Exchange Program, the Ithaca College-Wells College Exchange Program or the Ithaca College Los Angeles Program.

Undergraduate Course per credit rate

Please click here to view the current undergraduate tuition rate for each semester. Nondegree undergraduate students are charged per credit tuition rates regardless of credit load.

Graduate Course Per Credit Rate

Graduate tuition per credit hour is variable by program

Audit Course Fee

Extramural students can AUDIT fall and spring classes at 10% of the undergraduate cost per credit hour with permission from the instructor. This applies to both graduate and undergraduate courses. Additionally, the $50 registration fee mentioned above also applies. The audit option is not available during the winter or summer sessions

Drops and Withdraws

If your schedule or obligations change after registration, you may wish to drop or withdraw from a course. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the difference between dropping and withdrawing. It is your responsibility to drop your course by the drop deadline or you will be charged for your course. Drop your winter session course as you would your fall/spring courses.

Fall/Spring Students - To drop a course, complete the "Withdraw from Fall/Spring Course" form on the following website (the form is near the bottom of the list) -

Summer/Winter Students - If you need to drop a summer or winter session course, use the "Withdraw from Summer/Winter Course" form found on the same website -

Note the deadlines listed in the fall, spring, winter, and summer academic calendars.

Billing and Payments


After your course registration has been processed, a bill will be generated by the Office of Student Financial Services. When your bill is ready, you will receive an email indicating that it is available to view on HomerConnect. There will be a payment deadline listed on your bill. Financial aid is not available for nondegree students.

Nondegree students with financial balances who have not negotiated a payment plan with the Office of Student Financial Services will have their registration reversed.
