About iaccounts

  • Iaccounts is IUP’s account setup and password reset service. This is available for users to do first-time account set-ups, various password changes, and claiming alumni/former student accounts.

    The iaccounts.iup.edu webpage is split into three sections.  

    First-Time Set-Up

    New students and employees will activate their IUP computing accounts using the options here. This first step is to activate your MyIUP/Network account. You will be prompted for personal information that only you know in order to begin the process. After setting this password, iaccounts offer you the opportunity to sign up your cell phone for self-service password reset. As long as you have a cell phone number that can receive SMS text messages, you will be able to utilize this service. Please note, it must be a U.S. number, not an international phone. When you have completed this process, you can go to the Active Students AND Active Employees section to set your imail and your ESS passwords.

    Active Students and Active Employees

    This section will allow users with active accounts the opportunity to update their various passwords. Links include utilizing the Self-Service Utility that you signed up for when activating your account. Also, your will be able to change your MyIUP/Network password, and links to change your imail and ESS passwords as well as updating your cell phone number for the Self-Service Utility. For these options, you must know your current MyIUP/network password.

    Alumni and Former Students

    Alumni and former students can claim accounts that will allow them to log into the MyIUP Former portal for services. These services include (but are not limited to) requesting transcripts and requesting an Alumni LiveMail account (@live.iup.edu). Please note, these services do no provide access to the campus network or an IUP e-mail account (@iup.edu). 

    If you forgot your Alumni LiveMail password, you will need to e-mail it-support-center@iup.edu. iaccounts does not currently have an option for the self-service utility.

    If you have any issues with any of these processes, you can log a ticket via ihelp. Active users are encouraged to use this option. However, if you are having issues with your MyIUP/Network password, or you are an alumni or former student, please call us at 724-357-4000 or e-mail us at it-support-center@iup.edu.
