Orientation for January Admission Transfer Students

What is next for admitted transfer students planning on entering in January 2009?

You may have visited the campus, met Indiana University of Pennsylvania staff members at an admissions visitation program or academic expo, received mail, and checked out our website for information about our University. If you have applied and been accepted, you may be asking — What do I need to do? What’s next? How do I know what classes to take? When do I register for classes?

At Indiana University of Pennsylvania, we are committed to student success. We know that the most successful students are somewhat familiar with the campus before they arrive, understand the expectations of being a college student, have met some fellow students, and know how to get involved. As well, proper advising and appropriate course selection are critical to first-year success. Our January Orientation programs for Transfer Students were established to help you begin your transition to being a student at IUP.

Attendance at orientation is mandatory for new transfer students as it provides opportunities to gain an early understanding of IUP policies and procedures, as well as the host of resources and personnel available to support student success. As a transfer student, you will meet with an academic advisor to review your transfer credits and program of study. At transfer orientation, you will select classes for the upcoming semester, learn about the campus network and technology resources, and become familiar with the wide variety of opportunities that await you at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

By participating in the orientation program, you will begin classes on Monday, January 12, 2009, with a better understanding of your academic program and degree requirements, your identification card, an understanding of technology resources, a feel for the university community and its values, and having been a part of your first academic department meeting.
