Important Policy Change for State Grants and Online Classes

Beginning in Fall 2012, there is a new PHEAA-mandated Classroom Instruction Policy which requires IUP to monitor the percentage of coursework a student takes online on a term-by-term basis.

A student may receive a state grant award for a term as long as he or she takes at least 50 percent of their credits for that term in the classroom.

In previous academic years, IUP had the ability to monitor this requirement on the basis of each academic year or a student’s entire program of study.

Courses offered online or through distance education are not considered in the classroom. Student teaching experiences, internships, laboratories, externships, and clinical experiences conducted under the supervision of a faculty member are considered to meet the in the classroom definition.
