Follow the steps below to become an IUP Transfer Orientation registrant!
We know that transfer students who are the most successful understand the expectations of being an IUP student. As well, it is essential to identify transfer resources. Proper advising and appropriate course selection are critical to transfer student success. Our goal is to provide each transfer student a proper introduction to social and academic life here on campus.
*Work and/or school absence excuses are available; request this when registering, and it will be in your packet when you arrive at the program.
Transfer Orientation occurs on either Friday, December 4, 2015 or Friday, January 15, 2016. Only the dates available to you will appear when enrolling for Orientation. We recommend selecting the earliest date available.
Transfer Orientation begins at 7:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Please plan accordingly.
Read the Transfer FAQ for specific details about each program, program dates, program fees, and answers to commonly asked questions.
During Orientation, students in the Colleges of Business, Natural Sciences and Mathematics, as well as Safety, Health, and Environmental Applied Sciences majors, and Allied Health (Clinical Lab Science, Nuclear Med Tech, Respiratory Care) majors, who have not transferred in their required Liberal Studies MATH course or its immediate prerequisite, will be assigned to take the MATH placement exam. The results will be used for course placement.
Students needing to take the exam should enroll for Orientation and ensure that transcripts have been sent to Transfer Admissions (see Step 8). IUP Orientation will review transcripts in the days before Orientation and email students assigned to the MATH exam two to three days before the Orientation. For more information about this exam, please see our Math placement chart.
