Application materials are available from and are initially processed by IUP's Graduate School. Your application, official transcripts of all previous college course work, letters of recommendation from two people who are familiar with your academic background, an essay, an interview at a scheduled open house or an uploaded video, and a nonrefundable application fee are required. The essay should address this prompt: Describe a time that you have been of significant benefit to another person and how that experience is evidence of personal characteristics that are important for a speech-language pathologist. We hold 3 open house sessions during late-fall and early spring during which interviews are conducted. If you cannot attend, you have the option of uploading a short video instead. The video should be no more than 60 seconds describing why you want to be an SLP, what is your specific interest area, and why you are considering IUP.

Again, please be sure that all application materials are submitted prior to February 15 for matriculation at the beginning of the following Fall semester.
