The health and welfare of our students continue to be IWP’s highest priority.

We know that the COVID-19 pandemic is creating employment difficulties and personal family issues for many across the United States, including some of our students. If you are facing issues of this nature that might affect your enrollment at IWP, please let us know ASAP ( so we can work with you to identify resources to help you find a solution that eliminates or minimizes the disruption to your education at IWP.

Updates from IWP


Because of public health concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19), all classes are currently being held online.

IWP offices

IWP staff, including the Business Office and Registrar Office, are fully functional, albeit operating via remote means.

Summer classes

Enrollment for the summer semester is open, and courses will be offered either temporarily via distance education or in-person if and when it becomes safe to do so, and as approved by our accreditation and licensure agencies.


Student events, including career seminars, alumni mentoring, and tours have been moved online. More information is here.

We have made the difficult decision to postpone our Commencement Ceremony to Saturday, September 12. (It had previously been scheduled for Saturday, May 16.) The timing and venue will be the same: It will take place at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, D.C. at 11:00 AM. Richard V. Allen, former National Security Adviser to President Reagan, still plans to be our keynote speaker on the new date.

At a time when many graduations are being canceled, we are very pleased that we will be able to host this celebration of the Class of 2020 and their achievements.
