Answers When You Need Them

Being a college student can be overwhelming. But we offer an integrated network of support at IUP, so you know exactly where to turn when you need help.

Do you have academic questions or concerns? Your academic advisor can help you navigate all things academics.

What about general college experience questions? All first-year students are assigned a guide: a staff member who can help you figure out all the non-academic stuff.

  • Not sure who to ask? Visit the Hawks Q&A Center. They'll answer any question you might have or connect you with the right resource.
