Goal Statement

The goal statement should express your career and academic goals.

A goal statement is usually about one to three pages in length and is often used to evaluate your writing skills. Please visit your program’s website for specific requirements.

Submit goal statements via e-mail at, or by mail to IUP’s School of Graduate Studies and Research.
