Multicultural Resources and Services

Your education is more than a degree—it's a turning point you work hard to reach. It's your preparation for the world and for your future, wherever it takes you.

We believe in you and in what you can do. Set your goals, and we'll help you reach them. Dedicated campus resources support our diverse student body. If you're looking for advising, academic support, and counseling, you'll find them—tailored to your specific needs. If you're looking for opportunities—like research with professors or an internship that makes you stand out—we can help you find those, too.

Promising Scholars Program

Apply to be a Promising Scholar. Scholarships range from $2,000 to full in-state tuition every year. Promising Scholars also enjoy supportive, community-building programs.

Diversity Weekend Visit Program for Admitted Students

As an admitted student, you and your guest will learn about the offices, programs, and student organizations that help students explore aspects of their identity and find a community of support.

Admitted students meeting the requirements will receive an email invitation to this event sponsored by IUP's Latino Student Organization (LaSO) and the Office of Admissions. IUP covers the cost of transportation, lodging, and meals for your entire time on campus.
