Office of Financial Aid

  • Mission Statement of the Financial Aid Office

    The Financial Aid Office is committed to providing financial resource information and services to students and their families while also supporting responsible stewardship of the funds entrusted to the university. As members of the IUP community, we will collaborate with other campus offices and external organizations to assist in promoting educational access.

  • Verification of Attendance (N Grade)

    Success begins the moment you step into the classroom. If you fall behind, it can be difficult to catch up later in the semester. In addition, because of US Department of Education regulations, students who fail to attend a class during their first week can actually delay or lose their financial aid.

    Students who cannot attend classes for valid reasons should let their advisors and professors know.

    IUP is committed to helping students succeed. Reach out to the Academic Success Center if you need any help in planning your class attendance or academic workload.

  • New Scholarship Information

    New and continuing IUP students can search and apply for university scholarships by completing the IUP General Scholarship Application.
