I need to repeat a course and I need a Course Repeat Form. What is the process involved to repeat a course?
I’d like to apply for a course substitution. What is the process?
What is the process for course withdrawal?
I'd like to take more than 17 credits. What is the process to exceed the usual maximum academic load?
I think the grade I received in a course was inaccurate or unfair. What do I need to do to get a grade changed?
I am an undergraduate student interested in taking a couple of graduate courses. How can I do this?
You can do this by completing the Undergraduate Application for Graduate Coursework form.
The policy states: “IUP undergraduate students with an academic grade
point average of at least 2.6 who are within 32 semester hours of
graduation are permitted, after receiving appropriate approvals, to take
up to six semester hours of graduate work whether or not they have
applied for acceptance into an IUP graduate program.
hours so earned have no necessary bearing upon the meeting of
undergraduate degree requirements, and no assurance is given or implied
as to their later applicability toward graduate degrees should the
students be admitted to IUP graduate programs. Should these credits
later be approved toward a graduate degree program, they will be treated
as transfer credits.”
Note: Graduate credits earned and applied toward an undergraduate degree cannot also be applied toward a graduate degree.
I am an undergraduate student and I know that I want to pursue my MS degree at IUP. Can I start to take graduate level classes now toward this degree?
Yes! IUP’s Early Admission program is designed for highly motivated
and successful IUP undergraduates who wish to continue their studies in a
graduate program at the university.
Applicants must have at least
a 3.25 GPA to be considered for early admission, and must have
completed at least 15 credit hours in their undergraduate major. More
information is available at Early Admission to Graduate Programs.
