  • Registration for this program is closed, but you can still plan a visit to campus.

  • Come and Experience IUP

    This special day is designed exclusively for students who have earned admission to IUP. You will have the opportunity to interact with current students and learn more about all you can achieve at IUP. We want you to have the chance to feel what it is like to be an IUP student. Because we know how our students love IUP, we think you will, too!

    Discover the opportunities that await you at IUP with sessions covering the topics important to you and your family—how to succeed, getting involved, living on campus and more.

    The program will begin at 10:00 am with a welcome session in the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex (KCAC). You will then have the opportunity to attend three different break out sessions covering a variety of different topics about IUP that will pertain to your interests. A list of break out sessions will be included in the welcome packet upon arrival.

    Students and parents will separate for lunch and reconvene later in the afternoon.  Students will enjoy a peer to peer lunch on the concourse of the Ed Fry Arena before meeting with the academic department of his/her intended major.  Parents will spend the early afternoon enjoying a complimentary lunch in one of IUP's dining halls and attending sessions that have been designed specifically for parents.  Later in the afternoon, students and parents will reconnect for optional full or housing only tours of campus, optional Honors College tours, and the opportunity for students to get their IUP student photo ID card.  The day will conclude at approximately 3:30 pm.

    If you are a student admitted to Fine Arts (except for Art History or Exploratory Fine Arts), please register for an Experience IUP: Fine Arts event, which includes your audition/portfolio review/interview.
