Welcome to Indiana University of Pennsylvania at Northpointe for the Fall 2011 term. You are receiving this letter because you are enrolled in at least one class on the Northpointe campus this fall semester. The first day of classes will begin on Monday, August 29.

First-Time IUP Students: Please plan to attend the IUP Northpointe Campus Welcome and Orientation on Tuesday, August 23.
