We understand that you have a lot to plan before you get to campus. We hope this checklist helps you and your family understand the major parts of this process.
Congratulations! You have earned admission to IUP. Make sure that you review the information included in your admission packet regarding your offer. The letter includes your area of study, starting term, and campus or special programs to which you have been admitted. The second page of the letter provides additional information regarding your admission terms, so look at it closely.
In your admission packet, we provided information for you to log into your personalized MyIUP student portal. Through this site, you can explore more about IUP and how students like you can succeed here. Additionally, you will be able to sign up for Experience IUP admitted student event, submit your tuition deposit, sign up for housing, and more.
If you choose IUP, this will remain your portal for accessing just about everything you need to succeed.
If you have misplaced your log in credentials without creating your account, you can complete this form. We will respond during regular business hours.
If you forgot your password, follow the reset instructions.
The FAFSA is available online at fafsa.gov starting October 1. The preferred filing date for IUP is January 15, but students can still submit the FAFSA after this date. We highly encourage all students to complete the FAFSA; this information is used in many ways to help families identify financial aid--loans, scholarships, grants, and work study--that student's may be able to receive. Even if you think you won't qualify, completing the form will help with scholarship opportunities and in case you have a change of circumstances in your family's income.
Follow up with IUP's Getting Started with Financial Aid for more information.
We have designed our Experience IUP program specifically for admitted students like you! This program provides a wealth of information for you and your family on topics that matter to you. You will get to meet current students and faculty to learn what being an IUP student is really like.

IUP requires students who have accepted their offer of admission to provide documentation that indicates the student's high school completion status.
