Registration, Fees, Deadlines & Academic Policies


Active Ithaca College degree students register for the winter session online beginning November 1 using HomerConnect. Winter session charges are billed through the student financial services office for matriculated students.

Winter session registration is on a space available basis. Online registration will remain open for add/drop by matriculated students until 11:59 pm January 11, 2016.

The registration deadline for nondegree (extramural) students is December 15.

Nondegree (extramural) students will register for winter session courses by completing a registration form and submitting it in person, by mail, email or fax. Payment is due at the time of registration. Checks must be made payable to Ithaca College, and mailed to:

Ithaca College
Office of Extended Studies
953 Danby Road
Ithaca, NY 14850

The Audit option is not available for winter session courses.

Drops and Withdrawals

Students who need to drop a course should do so online using HomerConnect, the student information system, during the add/drop period. Students wishing to withdraw must obtain a withdrawal form from the registrar's office and submit it by the deadline to the Office of Extended Studies for approval. Add/drop and withdrawal deadlines can be found on the winter session academic calendar. No refund is given for a withdrawal.

Note: Cessation of class attendance or notification of the instructor is not considered an official drop or withdrawal. Unless students officially drop or withdraw from a course, they are still registered for the course, and will receive a grade of F even though they did not attend class. It is the student's responsibility to add, drop, or withdraw from a course.

Enrollment Limits

Students may register for up to 4.0 credits during the winter session. To seek approval for a credit overload, please complete the Winter/Summer Credit Overload Approval Form (at right).
