Winter Session Tuition, Fees, and Financial Aid

Beginning in October, you may enroll in online courses and complete the coursework during semester break.

Choose from courses in education, liberal studies, psychology, and more. This is a separate session that ends prior to the spring semester. 

Check the Winter Sessions site for more information.

Financial Aid Information

Students attending the winter session may be eligible for additional financial aid funding to assist with winter session costs if enrolled in the subsequent spring semester at IUP. Any financial aid awarded as a result of attendance in the winter session will be paid to the student's account during the spring semester.

Students who are part-time, undergraduate students in the spring semester (i.e., registered for fewer than 12 credits) and are otherwise eligible for PHEAA State or Pell grant funding may be eligible for an increased grant(s). The Pell Grant/PHEAA State Grant review will be completed by the Financial Aid Office at the completion of the Drop/Add period for the spring semester.

A student who is receiving Stafford loan funding and who did not borrow the maximum loan amount for his/her grade level may be eligible for additional Stafford loan funding due to the inclusion of costs for the winter session. If you are changing grade levels after completion of fall semester coursework, notify the Financial Aid Office for additional Stafford Loan funding consideration.

Students who would like additional funding in a PLUS or alternative loan may apply. Please indicate on the PLUS or alternative loan application that this funding is for the spring semester period, since all financial aid for winter session is processed and paid to the student account during the spring semester.

Contact the Financial Aid Office at 724-357-2218 or financial-aid@iup.edu if you have questions about aid eligibility.
