You can get a head start on graduate school by applying for early admission to many of IUP’s graduate programs during your junior year in college. Earn your bachelor’s and master’s degree in as little as five years, saving you time and money.
In our Early Admissions program, you can begin to earn your master’s while still working toward your bachelor’s degree. Once you have earned at least 15 credits in your major and 90 credits overall, while maintaining a 3.25 GPA, you can apply for Early
Admission to an IUP graduate program. Most students become eligible during the second semester of their junior year.
Once accepted into your master’s program of choice, you can use up to 40 percent of your graduate classes to satisfy the requirements of your undergraduate degree. Because these classes count toward both, you can finish your bachelor’s and master’s degree
in less time.
