Get Ready for Class

Your culinary journey is about to begin! Here are a few things you can do to be ready for the first day of class:

Activate your IUP network account and your IUP e-mail account.

Information regarding your IUP network account and IUP e-mail account was mailed with your acceptance letter. Here’s how to activate your IUP network and e-mail accounts if you have not already done so.

Practice weights and measures before you start classes. 

Being able to work with weights and measures is very important in the culinary world, and you will use them in every class that you take this Fall. Here is a Weights and Measures Presentation to help you practice. 

Make sure you have the right tools.

Your books, uniforms, and knife kit will be included in your supply package, but there are a few other things you will need. Check out the list of supplies that you will need to bring with you or purchase when you arrive at school.

Are you eligible for disability support services?

Be sure to visit the Advising and Testing Center for detailed information about the support services available at IUP. Please complete the Declaration of Disability Form if you will require support services during your enrollment at IUP.

Return the Declaration of Disability Form to  Advising and Testing Center, Pratt Hall, Room 216, 201 Pratt Drive, Indiana, PA 15705. Submit your form before starting school to ensure that your services are ready to go when you start classes.

Prepare to manage your health away from home.

Check out Health Care Services in Punxsutawney for information about local health care providers and services. Be sure to bring your insurance card(s) with you when you come to school.

Are you planning to apply for work on campus or in the community?

Bring your Social Security card to school. You will need it to be hired.
