    IUP considers all students who will enter the U.S. on F or J visas as “International Students” for admission purposes. International graduate applicants are not considered for admission to sites or locations other than the IUP main (Indiana) campus, unless taking courses online outside of the United States. 

    International students are not admitted for the Summer term unless applying to a “Summers Only program” or are already an IUP student.
