She cares more about Educational Quality than the average student.
Major: PreMed and Medical (This Major's Salary over time)
DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL. Your pay a lot of money for sub par education. Look at the reviews, half of the teachers the students can not understand, or the professors are horrible. The only cater to freshman. My child will be a sophomore next year, they are not able to take one class that is part of her major as all of the classes are already closed. The school tells you when you can schedule for next year. The few that are open still, the professors are "to be avoided - can not understand" Then when she goes to schedule, the system will not allow you to schedule, they receive an error "need approval"! Mind you ADVISER told her which classes to take! THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE! They need to focus on education not the suites! Housing is more expensive than tuition! WAKE UP IUP!
responseThe reason why your student had trouble registering is because she is a sophomore. Incoming freshman schedule first, then the seniority system takes over. The reason for this is to ensure that upperclassmen get the major classes they need in order to graduate on time. It happened to me as a sophomore just like it happens to every IUP student, or any college student for that matter. If they can't get the classes they want, underclassmen are expected to take the liberal arts classes required of every student. This way, in the event they change their major down the road, the major classes they already took wouldn't have gone to waste.
