Distance Education at IUP

IUP offers online undergraduate- and graduate-level courses that can be accessed digitally at any time of day or night.

As active participants in the learning process, students communicate online with professors and classmates. Because distance courses maintain the same high standards as those conducted in the classroom, academic success requires self-discipline and the ability to learn without face-to-face interaction.

Online Undergraduate Degree Programs

Depending on course availability, it might require more than four years to complete your undergraduate bachelor's degree. Online course availability will vary from semester to semester and could be offered in the fall, spring, summer, and/or winter sessions. Students should consult their academic department to determine the best path forward to degree completion.

How to Apply for Online Courses

  • Students already enrolled at IUP should use MyIUP to register for online courses.
  • Non-IUP undergraduate students must complete a non-degree application for every term they’d like to attend IUP. Graduate students should submit the online graduate application.
  • Students who are currently enrolled at another Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education university should complete a Visiting Student Form.
