The value of a college education cannot be measured in dollars and cents alone. Ithaca College is committed to providing an excellent education and an outstanding quality of student life. Best of all, an IC education is affordable. Among 52 comparable private or independent institutions, our tuition is in the lower third.
Ithaca College administers a diverse financial aid program that includes monies from state, federal, and institutional sources. Any financial aid that is based on demonstrated need, as determined by the college’s Office of Student Financial Services, uses information submitted by the applicant on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and, in the first year, the College Scholarship Service (CSS) Profile. Federal aid eligibility is determined by information submitted on the FAFSA.
A student may be eligible for up to $7,695 in federal grant assistance and $12,500 in federal loan programs, depending on financial need, year in school, and other factors.
