Return to South Hill

Ithaca College plans to welcome students back to campus for the Spring 2021 semester. Though the national situation around the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we remain committed to delivering a signature IC experience to our students in the midst of it, and will continue to prioritize flexibility, safety, and the public good.

Plan for Spring Semester

The first day of classes for the spring semester will begin with remote instruction on Monday, January 25, 2021, with on-campus instruction slated to begin Monday, February 8.

A phased move-in will be conducted. On February 8, instruction offerings will expand to several formats—in person, hybrid, and remote.

Students from NON-CONTIGUOUS STATES, U.S. TERRITORIES, or CDC LEVEL 2 countries or higher

Residents from non-contiguous U.S. states, U.S. Territories or CDC Level 2 countries or higher must satisfy the testing and/or quarantine requirements of the New York State Travel Advisory. Please refer to the New York State Entry Requirements page for information.

Governor Cuomo has provided extraordinary leadership in helping ensure that the reopening of the state takes place in a data-driven, well-thought out and coordinated way.
