RESOURCES FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AND SCHOLARS

         “SkillZone at IUP is one of the 

        places I really love. I can’t 

       describe the impact SkillZone 

       has had on improving my 

      English. I encourage every 

     international student to stop by 

     SkillZone and see how helpful

Since 1981, the American Language Institute (ALI) at IUP has been helping students achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals by providing excellent courses and co-curricular opportunities to develop English language skills and a deeper understanding of U.S. academic culture. 
 

ALI students have full access to university resources, from the library and residence halls to student organizations and recreational facilities.

The University Police department provides police 

protection to the university 24 hours a day. 

The Career and Professional Development 

Center (CPDC) brings employers to campus 

through career fairs, on-campus recruiting, 

and other special events to help students 

meet employers for internship and full-time 

employment opportunities. 

IUP offers many dining options on campus, including breakfast, lunch and dinner.
