Students are only admitted on a full-time basis, and classes run from late August through late December (Fall Semester) and early January through late May (Spring Semester). The semester programs each consist of two eight-week modules. After completing the eight-week module, students will advance to a higher level of classes, start new textbooks, and work with new teachers. Students spend approximately twenty hours per week in class. IUP’s standard curriculum includes four hours of classes a day from Monday to Friday. These four hours of classes include three hours of 3-on-1 instruction and one hour of 1-on-1 instruction. The actual class arrangement may vary slightly depending upon individual circumstances.
