Commit to IUP

  • You’re ready to make it official and commit to IUP. We’re so excited you’re joining us. Welcome to the IUP family!

    You’re only two quick steps away from making it official and becoming an IUP student. First, you’ll want to accept your offer, then you’ll pay your tuition deposit. To guarantee your place in the incoming class and in on-campus housing, you’ll need to pay your tuition deposit of $150 by May 1 for a fall start (for a spring start, two weeks before the semester), but you can accept your admissions as soon as you’re ready. Here’s how:

    Make My Decision

    Accept your admission

    1. Log in to your IUP Admissions Account.
    2. Click View Your Application/Next Steps to access your decision.*
    3. Click Respond Now.
    4. Read through the application details, then choose I Accept Admission.
    5. Confirm your choice in the pop-up window by choosing OK.
    6. Choose to pay your deposit now or later. 

    Pay your deposit

    If you chose “pay later” and are returning to make a deposit, click Pay Deposit in your IUP Admissions Account to navigate to the payment screen.

    1. Click Make Online Payment.
    2. Enter your banking or credit card information. 
    3. Click Submit. 
    4. Celebrate becoming an official IUP student!

    *Make sure you double-check the program that you’ve been accepted into. If you have any questions regarding this, please call 724-357-2230 or email admissions-inquiry@iup.edu


  • If you’d like to make your deposit by mail, you can send a check of money order by mail for your non-refundable deposit. Please make it payable to IUP. Include the student’s name, Banner ID (if available) or birth date, and indicate that it is for the tuition deposit. Please mail to: Office of the Bursar, Clark Hall, Floor 1, 1090 South Drive, Indiana, PA 15705-1038. Please be aware that it may take a week or more to process any deposits that have been mailed due to staff working remotely at this time. To expedite processing, please use your IUP Admissions Account to submit the deposit by credit card or e-check. 

  • If you received instructions to deposit through MyIUP

    If you want to make your non-refundable deposit online through EasyPay, make sure you have set up your MyIUP portal. Then, click the Make Tuition Deposit button and open the step-by-step directions below (perhaps in a second tab). You can pay online with an electronic check (without a fee) or with a credit card (with a fee).

  • Please allow 24–48 hours after the next business day for your deposit to be processed and for your MyIUP portal to be updated with your next steps (including signing up for housing). If you have questions about EasyPay, contact the Bursar’s office at 724-357-2207 or bursars-office@iup.edu.
