All newly admitted international students who are unable to report to IUP by the scheduled start date have two options.
Option One: Withdraw their admission to IUP.
Option Two: Defer their admission to the next academic semester.
Students can defer up to one full calendar year before needing to submit a new application, financial statement, and application fee. However, some graduate programs might require a one-year deferral.
Students who are in the U.S. and unable to report to IUP should be in contact with our office immediately to sort out potential immigration issues.
Please follow these instructions for deferrals. Note that new acceptance packages will be mailed to students who have chosen to defer starting in mid-February for Fall admission (late August) and early October for Spring admission (January)
