IUP Residency Requirement for Awarding of Degrees


All students receiving their first baccalaureate degree are required to complete 30 of their last 60 credits in courses at IUP. All students receiving their first associate degree are required to complete 15 of their last 30 credits in courses at IUP.

For an IUP major, minor, or undergraduate certificate, students are required to complete at least 50 percent of required credits in courses at IUP or another State System institution. Junior/Senior year Study Abroad semesters or other formal Articulation agreements in which State System students may reverse-transfer credits back to IUP are exceptions to this policy.

For undergraduate active-duty service members, IUP applies a more military-friendly set of residency requirements, and these students should consult the Military and Veterans Resource Center for more information. IUP courses include all courses listed in the Undergraduate Catalog and Graduate Catalog.
