Congratulations on your acceptance to IUP as an incoming transfer student.
The next step on your road to becoming an IUP student is Orientation. It is through Orientation, only, that you are advised and register for your spring classes and take any necessary placement tests. In addition, you begin to learn the policies, procedures, benefits, and resources available to you as an IUP student.
The IUP 2016 Transfer Orientation Process outlines the steps you will take to register for Orientation. Please read the entire process, be sure that you understand the steps, and then register for Orientation, as described in step 6 of the IUP 2016 Transfer Orientation Process. Remember that Orientation sessions are filled on a first come, first served basis. Attending the earliest orientation possible is strongly recommended, so read and register now.
Please be aware that, should you be a student with a disability, we seek to serve you through Disability Support Services (DSS). Please see registration for DSS information through the Declaration of Disability form as well. (Registration for Orientation and DSS are separate procedures.) You do not need to complete the Declaration of Disability form if you do not have a disability.
We look forward to receiving your Orientation enrollment form and sending you further information. Please review the Orientation website for further information about transfer program, including fee information. Also, please share this information with parents/family members and others assisting you in planning, so that they are aware of IUP Orientation and the information that we have provided to you. If you have any questions along the way, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get in touch.
Our program allows students to become familiar with the campus and some of its services before beginning the semester. Because we have found that students are not always the best predictors of the levels of classes in which to begin, for selected majors (business, safety sciences, and natural sciences and mathematics) we have developed our math placement testing program to provide students with the information to register for appropriate courses, if they are not transferring in the required math course or its immediate predecessor.
Orientation offers a basic overview of IUP academic policies, opportunities, and services for both students and parents. Our trained staff consists of current students and faculty and staff members who particularly enjoy working with transfer students. Join us for this educational program tailored to meet the needs of entering transfer students.
Note: Attendance at earlier dates is most desirable for course registration. Once capacity for a session is reached, it will become unavailable.
The Transfer Orientation programs run from as early as 7:00 a.m. (if placement tests are required) until 5:00 p.m. Attendance is required, and it is only through the program that students are registered for their courses.
Students will be mailed information about how to enroll for Orientation in early November for spring semester entrants and early March for fall semester entrants. Invitations to Orientation are sent first to those who have paid tuition deposits. Attendance at the earliest date available is always desirable. Since students can only register for Orientation dates for which there are openings, confirmation mailing are sent the week prior to the actual Orientation date attendance.
Due to limited resources, there are no parent orientations for January transfer admits. Parents of students entering in a fall semester will receive their own mailing about the optional Parent Orientation on the same schedule as fall entrance students.
