Find answers to many of your questions, interesting facts about IUP, and learn how we will support your student.
The new student orientation experience is not a stand-alone event that prepares you for the college experience. The IUP orientation program will engage you with tasks and activities before and after attending your online program. Please read the content below to learn how to prepare yourself for this experience. Note there are some essential tasks that need to be completed to develop your fall course schedule.
Our office is currently working remotely. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Incoming students for fall 2021 will be able to sign up for their online orientation in the beginning of March.
How to prepare for your orientation experience:
For an overview of Orientation activities, please see the orientation schedule page.
Freshmen, transfer students, and students attending our Northpointe and Punxsutawney campuses need to register. See the dates listed below for your program.
All incoming students are required to complete placement testing before classes can be scheduled. Sometimes students have questions related to what is required. Attending this Zoom meeting can assist you with completing the necessary placement tests in a timely fashion.
Orientation is required for all incoming students, both freshman and transfer. Along the way, you’ll learn about campus services available to you and much more. All orientations will be online.

*Attending one of these program dates will enable you to take advantage of the five-installment payment plan that includes the students’ full cost of attendance (tuition, room and board, and fees) for the fall semester. Please visit the Bursar’s website for more information about the installment payment plan options. You will want to scroll down to the Installment Payment Plan section.
Because family support is critical to your student’s success, we would like to encourage you to participate with them during their online orientation experience.
