IUP at Northpointe Discovery Day, a one-day event designed to help prospective students learn more about the Northpointe regional campus, will take place Saturday, July 10, 2010.

Registration and continental breakfast begin at 9:30 a.m., and the program runs from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

Those in attendance will have the opportunity to

  • Meet our faculty members
  • Talk with current students
  • Find out what financial aid is available
  • Tour the campus
  • Have questions answered

Those who apply to Northpointe at the Discovery Day event will have their $40 application fee waived.

Although applications are no longer being accepted at IUP’s main campus, there’s still time to apply to Northpointe for the Fall 2010 semester.

Register on line to attend Discovery Day.

An easy commute from Pittsburgh, the Northpointe campus is just off Route 28 at Exit 18 in Freeport. As a commuter campus, it offers students the advantages of living at home and easing their way into college life while saving money otherwise spent on room, board, and other fees.

Students also have the benefit of receiving an IUP education. Students can go to Northpointe to start any of IUP’s more than 140 majors. All courses at Northpointe are taught by IUP faculty members and transfer to IUP’s main campus. So students won’t end up taking classes that don’t count toward their degree.

In addition, a handful of programs can be completed right at the Northpointe campus: two associate, two bachelor’s, and two master’s degree programs.
