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 (studentaffairs@iwp.edu) 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.
