The fall 2018 orientation registration process will start on
March 1, 2018. Invitation letters will
be mailed to all deposited incoming freshmen students and admitted transfer
students. Students will be instructed to
register for a session via MyIUP. Within
24 hours of registering for a session, a link will appear on the student’s
MyIUP home screen related to placement pre-testing. Students will need to complete pretesting for
math and are encouraged to submit a portfolio for their English placement. More information regarding these procedures
can be found below.
All incoming students need to complete the math pre-test
prior to their session. Students who do
not take it within 48 hours prior to their respective program will need to take
the test while at their orientation session. After taking the pretest at home, students will have the opportunity to
work on their math skills through a series of remediation modules designed
specifically for them based on their pretest results. Students who spend at least 10 hours
remediating have, in most cases, placed into a higher math course. All students
in academic departments that require a calculus-based math will have to retest
while at orientation. Students are
encouraged to complete the pretest early and also utilize the remediation
modules. For more information, please
visit Math Pre-Testing Information.
All incoming students have the option to submit a portfolio
of writing samples that will be evaluated for English placement. Submissions are time sensitive. Please visit English Portfolio and Placement Exam Information
for more information regarding this process. For students not submitting a portfolio, they will participate in the
English essay exam on campus during their orientation experience.
