Start Checking Items Off Your List
To create your computing account, you'll need your University ID number, which was included in your letter of admission. You can then follow these prompts to create your IU email account.
- Search for and select “Create My First IU Account” in One.IU.
- Read the Guidelines for Appropriate Usage, which are rules and policies for IT account use at IU, and agree to these policies.
- Enroll in the Passphrase Self-Service Reset System. If you forget your passphrase, this tool will enable you to reset it yourself without having to visit a UITS Support Center walk-in location in person.
- You will want to remember your account information or record it in a secure place. You will need this information each time you log into your IU computing account.
- When creating your account, you’ll be prompted to enroll a device for Two-Step Login with our partner, Duo. Enroll a mobile device and download the Duo Mobile app for the safest, most convenient way to log in.
- Exit. It may take up to two hours before you can log into some services.
If you have ever previously been enrolled in or participated in a program at any IU campus and were given a 10-digit University ID number or IU username, you will use the same ID number or username and follow these steps to set up your IU computing account.
If you have forgotten your IU username, contact the UITS team.
Your IU email is the official method of communication for the university. Your professors, academic advisors, and other staff members use email as their primary way of communicating with you so be sure to check your email often.
You will begin receiving emails from many offices on campus. Included in this communication will be important deadlines and information that you will not want to miss!
Accessing your IU email
About 2-3 hours after your University account has been created, you can access your email:
Contact the IT Help Desk at 812.375.7555.
IUPUC requires all freshmen starting during a fall semester to officially accept their offer of admission by paying a non-refundable $100 enrollment deposit. Your deposit will appear as a credit on your financial account.
Students starting courses during a spring semester do not need to submit a deposit.
If you have taken college courses while in high school, or at another institution, or if you have taken classes for AP credit, you need to request official transcripts or test scores be sent to IUPUC. In order to better schedule classes for your first semester, your academic advisor needs official final grades and test scores.
- For college or university transcripts, please contact the college from which you received your dual credits and request an official transcript to be sent to IUPUC.
- For AP test scores, contact the College Board and request a copy of your scores to be sent to IUPUC.
- If you have completed dual credit from an IU campus (either on campus or through the Advanced College Placement), no action is needed - those credits are already applied to your transcript.
Send transcripts or AP Exam scores to:
Attn: Office of Admissions
4601 Central Avenue
Columbus, IN 47203
In order to place you in the most appropriate math course, IUPUC requires all first-year students take the ALEKS Math Placement Exam. This tool assesses your current math level in order to place you in the most appropriate math course.
Please keep in mind, this test must be taken before you see an academic advisor.
At IUPUC, you will meet with your academic advisor to register for classes. We want you to have plenty of time to ask questions and discuss your future in a confidential and personal setting.
Your advisor will:
- Assist in planning your academic program.
- Explain how your transfer credits apply to your degree.
- Explain academic policies and requirements.
- Suggest opportunities like our Honors Program.
Schedule your appointment as soon as possible for best choice of classes and class times.
