As an incoming student, you are required to attend an on-campus orientation session that will prepare you to be successful at IUPUI. During your orientation, you’ll meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, and learn about the resources available to you at IUPUI.
Orientations are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so be sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible.
Making an orientation reservation
You must pay your enrollment deposit in order to reserve a spot at orientation. If you haven’t paid your enrollment deposit, the Orientation Reservation System will not allow you to make a reservation. (It can take up to seven days for your deposit to post to the Orientation Reservation System. If you have already paid your deposit but can’t make a reservation, it’s likely because your deposit hasn’t posted yet—check back again later.)
Before you make a reservation for orientation, you must create your IUPUI computing account. (See step #2 on this checklist for instructions on creating your computing account.) After you’ve done this, use the username and passphrase for your computing account to log in to the Orientation Reservation System. Follow the instructions to choose your reservation date.
If you have problems logging in to the Orientation Reservation System, call 317-274-4240 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.Make an orientation reservation
After you’ve made your reservation, check your IUPUI email account for a confirmation email from Orientation Services. This email has important information about your orientation.
Orientations are major specific. To change your major before orientation, log in to the Orientation Reservation System and select the Orientation Questionnaire tab. Changing your major may change the date of your orientation.
Taking placement tests
Prior to your orientation, you will be required to complete placement tests that may include the English Guided Self-Placement questionnaire and tests in mathematics, chemistry, and/or a foreign language. The results of these tests will help you and your advisor select appropriate classes for your first semester at IUPUI. Failure to complete your placement tests will delay your registration for classes during orientation.Take your placement tests
