Three students walking on campus

Congratulations on your acceptance to Indiana University of Pennsylvania!


Freshman Student Orientation at IUP is a two-day, overnight program where you will have an opportunity to:

  • Learn more about IUP
  • Experience a taste of college life
  • Meet with an advisor in your major
  • Plan your first semester
  • Find out ways in which you can get involved on campus

All new students are required to attend an Orientation session; the more familiar you are with IUP the more likely you are to be successful here.

There is a separate Parent/Family Orientation program available for any parent, guardian or family member who would like to accompany you to your orientation. The family programs run independent of your own orientation and provide information to family members about the IUP experience.

First year students admitted for Fall 2017 should check MyIUP for the most up to date announcements and information on Orientation. Registration for Orientation will begin in February 2017. The proposed Orientation dates are as follows, but are subject to change. Please check back.

We look forward to seeing you soon at IUP!
