IDS Application and Contract Change Resources

If you are a matriculated PSU student, you will enroll in IS2225 Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies. The course will introduce you to Interdisciplinary Studies and help you complete your application to the program. Applications include three required parts: the IDS Contract, Planning Guide, and Essay. See below for downloads and examples.

When you have completed your application, attach the three required parts to a single email to, subject line: IDS APPLICATION. The IDS Council will review each application submitted. You will receive an email informing you if your contract has been approved, or if you need to make certain changes before approval.

Once you are accepted to the program, you may need to make a change to your contract at some point. For that, please submit an IDS Contract Change Form (see Contract Change Form section below for download). Remember that you will also need to submit an updated Contract Form. Submit both documents in a single email to, subject line: IDS CONTRACT CHANGE.
