Your student will meet with an academic advisor at orientation to learn more about their major, school, and degree requirements. Advisors will help your student register for classes and leave with a completed schedule for the fall semester. Your student can prepare for advising during orientation by visiting acd.iupui.edu/degrees to review degree requirements.
Parents, family members, and supporters of beginner IUPUI students will receive a 2019-2020 Parent & Family Calendar during New Student Orientation. The calendar is full of information about useful resources and dates to help you stay connected to IUPUI and your student. If you do not receive a calendar during summer orientation, contact the Coordinator of Parent and Family Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org to request yours.
During orientation, you will have the opportunity to meet IUPUI staff and faculty members, learn more about the campus community, communicate with your student, and kick-start the college transition. Summer orientation is also a chance to connect with fellow parents, family members, and supporters of incoming IUPUI students. You are encouraged to connect with those around you, share your story and contact information, and continue the relationship beyond orientation.
Make sure to connect with IUPUI Parent and Family Programs via the Jaguar Family Association and social media. Contact the Coordinator of Parent and Family Programs at email@example.com, visit families.iupui.edu, and learn more in the Prior to Classes Starting section.
Your student will receive their initial CrimsonCard at no cost during New Student Orientation. Students will be required to present a government issued photo ID (driver’s license, state ID, passport) to receive their CrimsonCard with the photo that was uploaded prior to arriving.
At IUPUI, we want every incoming new student to find a community to engage with on campus. At Beginner Student Orientation, your student will be able to learn how to get engaged on campus during the JagBlast program. Following an interactive session about campus traditions, student involvement, and opportunities to build community, your student will join numerous student organizations and campus units in the Campus Center for an hour of fun. Encourage your student to take advantage of this time to network with student leaders and find a community to participate in during the fall semester such as Fraternity and Sorority Life, a multicultural student organization, participation in Jagathon: IUPUI's Dance Marathon or Regatta, and more! Check with your student to make sure they are registered in The Den, IUPUI's site for connecting with all student organizations and upcoming student-organized events.
