How to Set Up Your IUP Network Account and E-mail

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

    You will need your IUP User ID and initial PIN which was provided to you in your acceptance letter. Contact Culinary Admissions at 800-438-6424 or 814-938-1159 if you have misplaced this information.

    Here’s what you need to do:  

    Step 1: Activate your IUP network account:

    1. Visit the iaccounts’ network activation page.
    2. Enter your numerical User ID, date of birth, and initial PIN and click Verify. Note: Be sure to include the @ symbol at the beginning of your User ID number. You can request a new PIN online if needed, and you can e-mail Culinary Admissions at if you don’t know your numerical User ID.
    3. Your IUP computing account information will display. It is important that you remember your four-character “IUP network account username.” You will use this to sign in to MyIUP and your e-mail account.
    4. Follow the prompts to continue setting up your account.
    5. Make note of your IUP network password for continued use.

    Step 2: Sign in to MyIUP and reset your e-mail password:

    1. Visit MyIUP.
    2. Sign in with your four character “IUP network account username” and the password that you set during the account activation process.
    3. Click the Personal Info page link.
    4. Under the Personal Information section, click Password reset options.
    5. After the page displays, check the checkbox beside E-mail. Note: For security purposes, your e-mail account is separate from your IUP network account and has its own password.
    6. Click Set Selected Passwords.
    7. Follow the prompts to change your e-mail password.
    8. After seeing the “password successfully changed” message, close the page to return to MyIUP.
    9. Click on the Home link.
    10. Click imail (top right corner of page, under Quick Links.)
    11. Sign in with your four character “IUP network account username” and the e-mail password that you just set.

    Important Notes:

    • Remember your passwords, protect them, and avoid sharing them with others. Protect these passwords as you would a bank debit card PIN.
    • Check your e-mail 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.
