Here are just a few of the benefits and services available to IUP alumni:

  • IUP Alumni Connections: IUP alumni can get it all at IUP Alumni Connections.

Register now!
  • Networking Opportunities with IUP Alumni Events: There’s no denying that when it comes to job searching, whom you know is as important as what you know. Build your network of contacts by participating in IUP alumni events. For a complete listing of upcoming events, visit the Alumni events site.
  • Short-Term Medical Insurance: GradMed® is an exclusive benefit designed for new graduates searching for a job or waiting for new employee benefits to begin, as well as alumni in between jobs. After graduation, many students lose their health insurance coverage under their parents’ plans, making them vulnerable to high health-care costs. GradMed® provides protection from the major expenses associated with an accident or unexpected illness.
  • Discounted Auto, Home, and Renters’ Insurance: As an IUP graduate, you qualify for special group discounts on your auto, home, or renters’ insurance. Visit Liberty Mutual to learn more.
  • Career Planning Services: As a benefit available to all IUP alumni, the Career Development Center assists with lifelong career planning and building job-search skills. In addition, the center provides employment and graduate school information, along with employment resources and services to help you at any stage of your career.

Staying connected to your Alumni Association is just a click away. Register now and you will be eligible for a variety of benefits and services exclusively for IUP alumni! We are looking forward to hearing from you!
