Welcome, and congratulations on your acceptance to Ithaca College!

Please come back to this site throughout the coming weeks for information about how to start preparing for a successful transition to Ithaca! More information will be shared as it becomes available, so check back regularly.


Due to health and safety measures instituted in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Office of New Student and Transition Programs is currently working remotely.  While we continue checking our phone for messages regularly, we encourage you reach out to us via email (nstp@ithaca.edu) for the quickest response time. This email is checked regularly during business hours (8:30 – 5:00 PM, Monday-Friday) and we will respond to your questions as soon as possible.

Ithaca College is also monitoring this situation closely, and while adjustments have not been made for the orientation programs, we will continue to update this site regularly to reflect accurate information. Please review the college’s expansive COVID 19 Website for the most up to date information.
