Visitor Guidelines

We're excited to welcome you to IUP Academy of Culinary Arts in person to see for yourself what life is like on campus. To ensure the health and safety of the IUP's community and our visitors, we have put in place the following measures based on public health directives from the PA Department of Health website.

Before Your Visit

We require all visitors to register in advance of arriving on campus. To register for a campus tour, email

Check for COVID-19 Symptoms

We ask you to perform a COVID-19 symptom assessment before arriving on campus. Please refrain from visiting campus if you do not feel well or if you have been in contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19.

Face Coverings and Hygiene

Effective Tuesday, August 17, IUP will require face coverings/masks to be worn indoors in public spaces at all campuses and centers. This is required of all people, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status.

While we eagerly anticipate meeting you in person, our admission staff will not be shaking hands out of an abundance of caution—please don't be offended.

On the Day of Your Visit

On the day of your scheduled campus tour, please check in at the Office of Culinary Admissions no more than 10 minutes prior to your visit time. Additional information on arriving to campus will be included in your confirmation and reminder emails.

While IUP is taking all precautions to safeguard our community, we cannot eliminate the risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection on campus. Please be reminded that you are undertaking your visit at your own risk. If any visitor shows symptoms and tests positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours of visiting campus, please report that information to University Police at 724-357-2141.
