The Summer and Winter Sessions

The Summer and Winter Sessions at IUP are designed to meet the needs of many students. Courses, workshops, and seminars are offered in the liberal arts, teacher education, and other fields of study.

Continuing university students, including newly admitted freshmen, who wish to accelerate their program of studies will find both Liberal Studies and special courses in all fields of study. Students from other colleges and universities may take courses at IUP; however, they are advised to first ensure that their home institution will transfer such credits earned at IUP.

Teachers-in-service will find courses in the summer program to serve a variety of needs. They may enroll to qualify for permanent certification, satisfy Act 48 requirements, take refresher courses in their field of specialization,  or take courses for the purpose of extending their certification to a new field.
