After Orientation

  • Once you’ve completed Orientation, you’re just a few steps away from attending in the fall.

You’ll receive details and instructions after you've attended Orientation. Be sure to check the student portal, MyIUP, for more information. 

    After that, your next big step will be arriving for the beginning of the semester. We kick off the start of the academic year with Welcome Week, a multi-day event filled with activities like class schedule tours, late night buffets, meet-and-greets, outdoor movie screenings, and DJ battles.

    Do you have questions after attending your Zoom orientation program? Visit our Student Success Leaders during our “Drop-In Hours” every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Students can click on the respective link below to join a team of our resourceful staff members so they can follow up on topics covered during the program, or inquire about other transition topics they are concerned about. Drop-in hours will be from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. from June 15 through July 1. Hours will transition to 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. starting on July 3 through July 31.
