iaccounts is IUP's computing account setup and password reset service. This is available for users to perform first-time account set-ups, self-service password resets for MyIUP and State System Employee Self Service, and more.

iaccounts is being phased out

In an effort to streamline the password reset process, IUP is transitioning from iaccounts to Microsoft Self Service Password Reset. One new enhancement is the ability for verification codes to go to international phone numbers. Also, you have the ability to add a personal email address as a recovery option.

The term former student refers to students who are no longer enrolled and no longer have an active computing account.

Active Accounts

All currently enrolled students and employees have active accounts. Alumni retain the active account status for 60 days after graduation. Undergraduate students who stop attending (no longer enrolled) still hold active account status for one year after their last term of attendance. Graduate students hold the active account status for approximately seven years from the start of their program. For more information on student accounts, please consult the Account Retention Policy.

An employee has an active account until their last day of employment. At the end of this last day, the account becomes inactive. They will no longer have access to IUP resources.

Inactive Accounts

Per the Computer Account Retention Procedure, student accounts remain active for a specified period of time after graduation or leaving the university. Once that timeframe passes, the IUP account is inactivated.

Alumni and former students still have access to select services. For more information on accessing alumni/former student services, see the Alumni/Former Student Services page. Please note, alumni and former students will not have access to the campus network or an IUP email account.

PaSSHE/ESS Password Reset

The State System of Higher Education Employee Self Service portal allows employees and student employees to view and manage personnel information. Student employees use ESS to submit their hours for a pay period.

Users use their IUP username and password to log in to the State System Employee Self-Service website.

A PaSSHE/ESS password is only needed for accessing the SourcePoint tab within ESS. Employees can reset their PASSHE/ESS password via the password reset option in MyIUP. This is the recommended method for resetting your PASSHE/ESS password. The PASSHE/ESS portal has a self-service portal. The self-service portal requires self-enrollment before you can utilize this service. If you have not enrolled in the PaSSHE/ESS Self-Service Portal, you will need to use the password reset option in MyIUP.
