Put Research on Your Résumé

From kidney regeneration to public opinion on forest use, our students dig in. IUP professors bring students into the work they do—from discovering a new dinosaur species to recording new music albums, from finding ways to make coffee production more sustainable to finding and naming new species of salamanders, frogs, snakes, and lizards in Honduras.

Along the way, they’ll become your mentors as you apply what you learn to build your résumé.

And if that isn’t enough, opportunities for hands-on learning, internships, and study abroad are available to expand your horizons and help you explore new places.

One of those people is your Navigator, someone who will keep tabs on your progress and jump in if you need help. If you don’t, that’s fine, too. You’ll also have an academic advisor to help you stay on track to your degree.

Estimate Your Tuition and Aid

The most common reason students shy away from going to college is the cost. But at IUP, we’re committed to making an education not just affordable, but also a great value.

As part of our commitment to affordability, we've frozen tuition for five years and housing costs for six years. We also reduced tuition by nearly 20 percent for undergraduate students in Pennsylvania in 2022 and for out-of-state students in 2023. IUP gives its students millions of dollars in scholarships every year, mostly funded by grateful alumni.

Life at IUP

A lot more is happening at IUP than just classes. Clubs and organizations are meeting in the HUB. Intramural sports are being played in the field house. Community service is going on everywhere. Students are also working out in the HUB Fitness Center, hanging out in the Oak Grove, dancing in Elkin Hall, and learning about other cultures at International Unity Day.

All over campus, students of all races, religions, and identities are finding ways to unwind and get to know one another. It’s all happening here, and you’re welcome to join.
