How to Use Your PIN

Note: Read before attending Orientation.

IUP Banner ID and PIN Requirements for Registration

You will register for fall 2015 courses as part of your Orientation. The orientation activities will provide you with an opportunity to receive advice on what courses to select and instructions on how to use the university’s registration system. Registration will occur through IUP’s University Records and Systems Assistant (URSA) website. Materials already sent to you by the offices of Admissions and Registrar refer to URSA. The materials also included two important numbers: your User Identification Number (ID, begins with @) and your initial Personal Identification Number (PIN).

Please bring the letter that provided you with these numbers with you to Orientation.

Your initial PIN is an eight-digit number.

  • If you have not logged onto URSA before your Orientation, you should bring the above-mentioned letter with you, as you will need this initial number to successfully access IUP’s registration system.
  • If you have logged onto URSA before your orientation, you have also been prompted to create a new eight-character PIN. You should know that PIN, so that you can successfully register. Bring the new PIN with you to Orientation.

If you have forgotten your PIN, you will need to reset it before attending Orientation. To do so, follow this process:

  • Enter your User ID on URSA and click on the gray button, Forgot PIN?
  • You will then be prompted to provide an answer to the two security questions you created the first time you logged into URSA.
  • After providing the correct answers, you will be prompted to create a new PIN, which must be a eight-character code you will always remember.
  • Bring this newly created PIN to Orientation.
