How to Set Up Your IUP Network Account and Email

  • Activate your IUP network account and sign in to MyIUP before Culinary Orientation.

    You will need your IUP University ID and initial PIN or the personal email address you used when applying. (These were provided to you in your acceptance letter and your deposit confirmation letter.) Contact Culinary Admissions if you have misplaced this information.

    5. Click Verify. Your IUP computing account information will display. 
    6. Remember your five-character “IUP network account username.” You will use this to sign in to MyIUP and your email account.
    7. Follow the prompts to continue setting up your account.
    8. Make note of your IUP network password for continued use.

    Step 2: Sign In to MyIUP to Access Email

    • Check your email frequently, as this is the official method of communication at IUP.
    • Be sure to click Sign Out when finished using MyIUP to keep your information secure.
