All students must register at IUP! It is important that you register on time so that book orders, financial aid, and classroom assignments are correct. Please follow these detailed instructions in order to complete this important process correctly.

Log onto URSA and print your transcript from IUP.

  1. Use your IUP transcript to complete/update your CCAC/IUP Program of Study Checklist.
  2. If you have not completed all of your CCAC courses, use the CCAC course guide to plan next semester’s CCAC courses.
  3. Please register promptly at CCAC so that you will get the courses and schedule that you need.
  4. Before you can register with IUP, you will need to schedule an academic advising appointment with one of the IUP co-coordinators.
  5. At your advisement session you will receive your Time Appointment Letter for IUP’s online registration system. It will contain the Alternate PIN Number (also called ALT or ALT PIN) which you must have in order to register for next semester. It will also indicate the available dates during which you will have access to the system. The Alternate PIN Number changes each semester!
  6. You will also receive registration instructions with the IUP courses required for the upcoming semester. Each course will have a Course Reference Number (CRN) that is used to register on IUP’s online system.
  7. Go to URSA to register for your IUP courses. Use your Time Appointment Letter to enter the Alternate PIN Number when prompted and use your registration instructions to enter the CRN for each course (you do not have to search for the course; instead, go to “Add classes”).
  8. Please be sure to print out your registration when you are done, so that you have a record of your IUP schedule. If you have a hold on your IUP transcript and are unable to print it, this usually means that your account is not paid. Check with IUP Student Accounts at (724) 357-2207.
  9. If you are having difficulty registering, please make sure that you have responded to the university’s Emergency Notification System request. The IUP emergency notification system sends out text messages in the event of a life-threatening campus emergency. Students must either register their telephone number with the system OR select the option to opt out of the emergency alert system before they will be permitted to register. Students who select the “opt out” option will have to make this selection every semester. You should have received an e-mail message from the university describing the emergency alert system. In any case, it is easy to respond by selecting “Emergency Notification System” option when you login to URSA.
