Visit Campus and College Fairs

  • Due to ongoing national concern regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), all on-campus admissions visits have been canceled to minimize the risk of disease transmission. Guests who have signed up for events will be notified by the Admissions Office. In the meantime, please visit campus virtually utilizing the resources below.

  • Things are uncertain right now, we know. In a perfect world, you’d be here. You’d be in the Oak Grove. You’d see where the new science building is coming. You’d see what makes IUP so special. But until things get back to normal, we’re got some virtual resources to give you a taste of what it’s like to visit IUP. And when this is over, we’d love to have you come visit in person.
