- Register for classes
Your students will meet with an academic advisor at orientation to learn more about their major, school, and degree requirements. Advisors will help your student prepare to register for classes and your student will leave with a completed schedule for the fall semester. Your student can begin to prepare for the advising appointment by visiting acd.iupui.edu/degrees to review the degree requirements.
- Open a savings and checking account with IMCU
While on campus during orientation, visit Indiana Members Credit Union (IMCU) to open a free checking account (minimum $50 savings account required) for your student. You can also open an account online in advance by visiting www.imcu.com. IMCU is the only financial institution to have a branch (second floor of the Campus Center) and 9 ATMs on campus. Your student can also show their school pride with a free IUPUI Jaguar debit card. IMCU offers 26 branch locations throughout Central Indiana, and over 60,000 free ATMs nationwide with the Alliance One and the All Point ATM Networks. For questions, contact the IMCU Campus Center Branch at (317) 636-8479, or visit www.imcu.com.
- Pick up your Parent & Family Calendar
Parents, family members, and supporters of beginner IUPUI students will receive a 2018-2019 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.
- Get involved as a Jaguar parent, family member, or supporter!
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.
- Get the CrimsonCard
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.
