The students who attended this tour will also have an opportunity to tour WVU, Robert Morris, and W&J in the future. 44% of the students who attended IUP say they are not intrested in attending IUP, but were intrested in other colleges such as Penn State, WVU, Pitt, and Robert Morris. Although, the acceptance rate for IUP is 93% many students would rather be close to home.

The most popular major at IUP is criminology and registered nursing/registered nurse. Grace Black said she is hoping to find a college that accompanies her major and has majors revolving around what she would like to become. IUP graduates 54% of students who attend the criminology and registered nursing/registered nurse major. IUP also offers online majors if you aren’t interested in going in person.
