Although IUP reviews applications on a rolling basis, to provide ample time for obtaining visas in your country, those outside the US must have all application materials submitted by July 1 to be considered for fall and by November 1 to be considered
IUP does not permit international students to begin their studies in the summer, unless a student wants to take intensive English program classes at the American Language Institute before
attending his or her degree program.
To be considered for admission to IUP, all international applicants must do the following:
Complete an Undergraduate Application Apply online,
download an application from the IUP Admissions office, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for an application
to be mailed to you. Submit all required documents for admission to the Undergraduate Admissions Office (see address below).
Submit these additional documents for admission to IUP.
$25 Application Fee
Fees are payable online or by sending a cashier’s check in US dollars.
Proof of English Language Proficiency
International students applying for an undergraduate degree program at IUP must demonstrate English proficiency. Residents of some countries do not need to submit TOEFL or IELTS scores.
Those from countries not waived can satisfy the English language proficiency requirement by one of the following methods:
Foreign Student Financial Statement
All international undergraduate students are required to complete a financial affidavit showing that they have enough money to cover the cost of two semesters at IUP. If a sponsor is someone other than a parent, a bank statement or letter from the sponsor
is required. Bank statements and letters cannot be more than one year old.
Foreign Student Affidavit of Financial Support
Before you apply, please note that some services do charge a fee in order to process your information, and we recommend that you begin the process as soon as possible to ensure that your materials can be received, evaluated, and forwarded to IUP in a
timely manner. IUP cannot forward any transcripts to these providers, so please make sure you follow the appropriate protocol in order to expedite your application in the most cost-efficient way possible.
Transcripts from students who are not required to use a foreign educational credential evaluation service and are sent to IUP directly must have the official seal of the institution.
Please upload or submit a copy of your passport. If you have dependents (spouse and/or children), please include copies of their passport(s) as well.
