Student & Graduate Reviews

3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Like you expect from any graduate program in clinical psychology there are pros and cons. The school is in a rural area over an hour from Pittsburgh and while there are good outdoor activities there's little in the way of city entertainment. Now a con that I imagine almost every school is the actual level of grad student support. Most of the resources come from upper classmen which is great in that respect but we are often left wondering what is going on at a faculty level. The program is small (15ish students per cohort) which allows for lots of individual attention but also leaves people wanting for more electives.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

Although Indiana, PA is fairly isolated, this program offers many networking opportunities for this field of work. Like most educational endeavors, this program is what you make it - there is a lot that can be accomplished here but you need to put forth the effort. This area is not very diverse and there is definitely an overarching small-town mentality throughout the downtown and surrounding areas. The housing and cost of living is fairly manageable through school loans and part time work. Scholarship is competitive and I am hoping to raise enough funds through outside scholarship to continue earning my degree.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

The financial aid is very little at IUP especially for graduate students. My department only offers part-time GAs which doesnt help a lot.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: A well experienced faculty, combined with a program with state-wide noteriety and CACREP approved curriculum makes this program one of the most competitive of its type. Cons: Classes only available online and/or in the evenings. However, this does not affect my opinion of the program, just other class times would just add convenience. I am aware most faculty maintain off-campus practices and evening classes are the only option.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

I fell in love with this graduate program because of the way they have set up the courses. I have the ability to complete two full semesters of internship experience during my last two semesters. This will give me more hands-on experience to broaden my knowledge base. The one thing that kind of turned me away from this grad school was the their lack of some technology that other grad schools offered. However, this school will certainly give me the challenge I am looking for.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a great program and affordable as well.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Indiana University of Pennsylvania has numerous pros to the Master's of Education School Counseling program. The program has top-notch technology that allows students to video tape and record counseling sessions that can then be used to reflect and critique counseling skills. The faculty of the counseling department is also extremely active and current in both the clinical mental health and school counseling field. They publish books, hold conferences, participate in nationally ranked organizations, and provide 110% support to students in the program.

Great program that has a respected reputation in Western Pennsylvania.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

So far, I've found my experience at IUP to be professionally and academically productive.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

Program offered is only of its kind in the area and IUP does a good job of reaching out to make itself available to the Harrisburg area. Overall quality of the courses and the workload is good. Communication from professors/advisors could be better.
