Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many colleges have suspended or relaxed some admitted student requirements and extended decision and enrollment deposit deadlines. We recommend that you contact the colleges to which you have been accepted directly for the most updated and accurate information.

Ithaca College, founded in 1892, is a private college grounded in the liberal arts tradition but rich in its range of contemporary programs. Programs are offered through the Schools of Business; Communications; Health Sciences and Human Performance; Humanities and Sciences; and Music. Ithaca boasts nationally recognized programs in music, physical therapy, communications, natural sciences and research-oriented psychology. The curriculum blends liberal and professional studies, offering multi- and inter-disciplinary opportunities. Small class sizes and an experiential hands-on approach to learning reflect the college's roots as a music conservatory. Skillful, sensitive teaching and an emphasis on personal contact with students characterize the faculty, who regularly engage undergraduates in their scholarly research. Its 757-acre campus is located in Ithaca, 50 miles south of Syracuse.
