Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis, usually within one week after completed applications are received. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis based on course availability.

While a strong academic profile is normally needed for acceptance, students may be accepted into courses where they have already demonstrated a strong background or ability in a specific field or subject.

Students who will be between 15 years and 18 years of age at the time of the summer college program are welcome to apply. Current high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are encouraged to apply to the summer college program.

Acceptance into Ithaca College's summer college program does not guarantee admittance into Ithaca College.
