All new and transfer students beginning at IUPUI for their first degree-seeking semester must attend the New Student Orientation program. The orientation program has two specially designed programs. The first is a full-day orientation for new students and transfer students who will be transferring in less than 18 credit hours. An overview of campus resources will be provided, and students will get information about the school or program in which they are interested, work with current IUPUI students, meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, participate in several interactive information sessions, and receive their student ID card (the JagTag).

The second program offered is for transfer students bringing in more than 18 credit hours. Transfer students will have the opportunity to meet with their academic advisor, participate in a technology session, take a campus tour, get their student ID (the JagTag), and receive assistance with registration.

Students are required to obtain their technology account before attending orientation (see Office of Admissions materials). They also must pay a new student enrollment fee that is assessed to all students who are beginning their first semester in a degree-seeking program, including intercampus transfers and students seeking a second degree. The fee is not contingent on participation in the program.

Reservations are required. For more information or to schedule an orientation session, please go online at welcome.iupui.edu or call (317) 274-4240.
