Campus Programming

IUP Connections

IUP’s Connections Program for Foster Care Students: Reach higher. See further. Shine brighter.

The Connections program is designed to specifically help foster youth and their support team with information and answers to questions you need when you need them—from admissions to financial aid, and to academic and social support both on and off campus, providing each student with personal excellence in a caring environment. At IUP, you will be a part of a community that is here to support you, encourage you, and help you find your success from where you are now to graduation day. This program helps provide students with access to mentors, supplies from the food pantry, and year-round on-campus housing options, even over scheduled breaks. You will not only become part of the IUP community, you will have a support team at your side, every step on your journey.

Connect with us.

Meet Your Team: Once you are admitted to IUP, your “team” will continue to support you until you graduate. Transitioning to college is a challenge, and we are here to provide you with the guidance you may need along the way.
