  • Next Steps for Admitted Students

    Woohoo! It’s time to get started.

    When you join the IUP community, you join a family for life. Now let’s get the ball rolling!

    1. Get Excited

    You’re on the way to new things. Great things. Your determination and curiosity will carry you far.

    2. Start Your MyIUP Account

    MyIUP is one of the important tools you’ll use at IUP. Use it to stay updated on all the things you need to do, like register for orientation, which you’ll need to do soon.

    3. Attend Experience IUP Day

    Spend an exciting day on campus! Try out college life while you get answers to your many questions—from financial aid to studying abroad. Talk with professors. Talk with students. Explore your future college home!

    4. Determine Your Financial Aid

    You can file your FAFSA (that’s the Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as early as October 1 of the year before you start college. You need it for grants, student loans, and work-study funds. Heads-up: complete it by January 15 for maximum consideration. (Have questions? We’re happy to help.)

    5. Look For Scholarships

    You might qualify automatically for some scholarships at IUP. Find others on our Scholarship Search tool.

    6. Commit to IUP to Reserve Your Place

    We can’t wait for you to arrive! Submit your tuition deposit to reserve your place at IUP. Move fast and commit to IUP early to get your first choice of housing options.

    7. Select Your Room—and Roommate

    You can research your housing options on the website. Then, use our roommate matching tool to find the perfect fit. Keep an eye out for sign-up dates after you submit your tuition deposit.

    8. Plan for Orientation and Wrap Up Your Paperwork

    Take placement tests, schedule your classes, and more. Once you're an official IUP student, be on the lookout for a letter in the spring with registration information. New student orientation usually takes place between May and July. You’ll also need to take care of a few details and fill out some forms:

    9. Get Ready To Grow

    Once you start college, your life won’t be the same. As we challenge you to unlock your potential, you’ll see the world in a whole new way. We’ll be with you every step of the way. You’re one of us now!
