Acceptance

  • Hat and Backpack

    Congratulations on your IUP acceptance to Education Abroad!

    You will be notified via email of your acceptance from IUP, at which time you will be given the information for the pre-departure meeting.

    Please note that this does not necessarily indicate that you have been fully accepted by your host institution.

    At the pre-departure meeting, you will receive the IUP Office of International Education Acceptance Packet, which includes the following:

    • Study Abroad Handbook
    • Health Abroad pamphlet
    • Sexual Health Abroad pamphlet
    • Visas pamphlet
    • Verification Letter (acceptance letter from IUP Education Abroad)
    • Country-specific information
  • Pre-Departure Information

  • While You're Abroad

    Now that you're in a new country, there will be many things for you to do and see. Please remember your safety above all. If it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. 

    Remember to know and/or carry the information for the nearest American Embassy or Consulate, even when traveling out of your host city or country. As an American, you can go there for help. To find this information, go to the U.S. Department of State's website

    It is important that you enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive updates and alerts while in another country. This will also allow the Department of State to be able to contact you in an emergency or natural disaster in your host country. You can either complete the information on the link above, or download the STEP app to your mobile device.
