Graduate students wishing to return to the university must contact the School of Graduate Studies and Research for specific
Undergraduate students who have withdrawn from the university, or were not enrolled during at least one of the two previous regular academic semesters, must complete an Application for Reenrollment.
Undergraduate students who have withdrawn from the university voluntarily or who have not been enrolled in the previous two or more regular academic semesters must submit an online application for re-enrollment.
Undergraduate students not in academic good standing (regardless of whether the student was dismissed by the university or voluntarily withdrew) must submit an online application for re-enrollment consideration.
Undergraduate students who have been involuntarily withdrawn from the university must submit a request for re-enrollment to the vice president for Student Affairs prior to completing the Application for Re-enrollment.
An application can be obtained by:
Students in good academic standing who reapply to IUP and wish to be admitted into the Associate of Arts in General Studies program will be automatically admitted to that program. Students not in good academic standing who reapply to IUP and wish to be
admitted into the Associate of Arts in General Studies program will be referred to the Office of the Dean of the College of Education and Communications for a decision.
If the student is seeking admission to a new college, the Academic Standards officer of the new college will consult the Academic Standards Officer of the former college before making a decision. The Office of the Registrar will officially change the
major based on the officer’s re-enrollment letter to the student.
All outstanding financial obligations to the university must be met before the returning student can register. Because of enrollment restrictions, requests for re-enrollment to Nursing or to the College of Fine Arts will be forwarded for approval by a
representative from that department or college.
Re-enrolled students who have not been enrolled for two calendar years (24 consecutive months) or more may petition their college dean for application of the Cancelled Semester Policy, which provides for cancellation from the cumulative record of the effects of one semester below a GPA of 2.0. Students who have been separated from the university for two calendar years (24 consecutive months) may petition their college dean to return under the Fresh Start Policy. Students must pay fees and attend classes before a designated semester will be cancelled or the Fresh Start Policy will take effect. See the Academic Policies section in the Undergraduate Catalog for more information on these policies.
Once the Application for Re-enrollment has been approved, the student will be sent instructions on how and when to register.
Students re-enrolled to IUP are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine financial aid eligibility.
Financial aid eligibility will be based on financial need, as determined by the FAFSA application, and on prior academic record.
