Career opportunities in this field of study
Part- and full-time options depending on your needs

school. Our programs are competitive, and our typical admitted student has a
college GPA just above 3.0. But we understand that life happens. That’s why we
take a holistic approach to reviewing your application.

to your certificate, master’s, or doctoral program of choice.
Attention, current IUP students: you will not have to pay the $50 application fee typically required for a graduate application. Instead, simply enter the waiver code GFM at the end of your application form, when prompted for payment.
After submitting your application, you will need a few extra items to complete it:
A goal statement that explains why you want to join the program.
Letters of recommendation from professors and/or professional contacts.
Any additional items based on the program for which you’re applying.
Attention, current IUP students: you will not need your official transcripts as part of your application. Our admissions team will pull these on your behalf.
Paying for grad school will be one of your most important considerations in the application process. Two options can help you make it more affordable.
Inform yourself about potential graduate assistantships for your program. Assistantships offer practical experience while also waiving part or
all of your tuition depending on your award.
Find a scholarship for your field of interest. You can find a list of scholarships on our website, or use Sallie Mae’s free scholarship search tool to get started.
