IUP Punxsutawney wants to offer you an exciting program. The Punxsutawney Advance College Experience (PACE) will run from July 2–August 4, 2016. Participants earn three credits in English, three credits in Fine Arts, and two credits in University Foundations, for a total of eight credits.
The Fine Arts course is designed especially for our PACE students as an immersion in the arts. You will spend Monday through Thursday in the classroom, and Friday will take you “on the road” to musical and theatrical performances, as well as on museum and gallery visits. This course will be complemented with your basic or college writing course.
After the PACE program, you will go home for a two-week break before returning for the fall semester. By completing PACE, you not only will have a head start on earning college credits, but you will also be much better prepared for being a full-time student.
Students will be offered on-campus housing for the PACE program and will be guaranteed on-campus housing for fall and spring semesters.
You don’t want to miss this opportunity! It is sure to be the best investment that you could make in the transition to your new life as a university student.
If you are attending PACE 2016, you will need to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The IUP School Code is 003277.
You will complete two FAFSA forms. The deadline is for the summer term is June 30, 2016. The IUP deadline for fall 2016/spring 2017 is April 15, 2016, to receive maximum financial aid consideration.
The 2015–16 FAFSA will give the Financial Aid office the information to put your aid in place for Summer, and the 2016–17 FAFSA will give the Financial Aid office the information to put your aid in place for fall 2016/spring 2017.
The IUP Financial Aid office will put together an award package. You should receive two award letters detailing the award or your award—one for summer and one for fall/spring.
Make sure you indicate your interest in student loans on Question 31.
Keep copies of all paperwork you submit. In some cases, the Financial Aid office may request further documentation. When completing paperwork, make sure you complete every section on each form. Do not leave any blank items unless instructed to do so. This will result in a delay in the financial aid process.
If you have any questions about financial aid, including loans, contact Colleen Casaday, director of Academic and Administrative Services, at 814-938-1164 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Students also may contact the IUP Financial Aid Office at 724-357-2218 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
