Do you know an outstanding high school student or an adult seeking to further his or her education? By making a referral to your alma mater, IUP, you can make a positive difference in their lives!

IUP continues to be ranked among the best institutions in the region for cost, quality, and comfort by a wide variety of sources, including the Princeton Review’s Best Colleges publications; Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine; Arco’s Dollarwise Guide to American Colleges; Barron’s Best Buys in College Education; The New York Times; Money magazine; and U.S. News and World Report, among others.

With more than fourteen thousand undergraduate and graduate students, IUP is the fifth-largest university in the state, offering more than 140 undergraduate degree programs, a nationally recognized honors college, and more than seventy graduate programs, including numerous doctoral programs.

In addition, IUP students enjoy an 18-to-1 student/faculty ratio. Nearly all classes are taught by faculty members, as opposed to graduate assistants. Best of all, IUP students can have all of this at a cost much less than at state-related and private universities.

Clearly, there are many reasons to take pride in your alma mater! I encourage you, as an alumnus or alumna, to continue this legacy of excellence by referring an outstanding, aspiring student to IUP by way of the Nominate a Potential Student Form.
