The Resident Assistant (RA) position at Ithaca College receives credit applied directly to their student account. Compensation is applied first to room expenses and any balance then applied to board, then tuition/fees. While it is not considered financial aid per se, the value of the remission must, for many students, be treated in the same fashion as other financial assistance. Since each student's financial aid package is different, the RA position will affect each student differently. This is why we strongly encourage each individual to contact the Student Financial Services Office before completing the application.
