Manage your IUPUI computing account
If you haven’t created your IUPUI computing account yet, you’ll need your university ID number, found in your admission email, to set up your account. Go to One.IU, search for “create my first IU account,” and select that task, then create your username and passphrase, passphrase reset questions, and email address. Be sure that the email address you create is for IUPUI.
If you’ve already created your IUPUI computing account (or if you’ve created a computing account for another IU campus), you just need to create your IUPUI email address. Sign in to One.IU with your username and passphrase and search for “email management.” Select that task and create your IUPUI email address. Be sure to check your IUPUI email account regularly—it’s the way we’ll contact you with important information.
After you’ve created your computing account, you can use One.IU to update your personal information, view your financial aid package, and see your Transfer Credit Report.
- After you’ve signed in, set your role to “Student” using the All Roles dropdown menu in the upper right under the searchbox or by selecting Roles in the menu on your mobile device.
- Select the “Student Center” default icon. If the icon doesn’t appear in your default view, type “Student Center” in the search bar.
- Select the task(s) you want to perform.

View your Transfer Credit Report
If you’re admitted to IUPUI, you’ll be able to view your detailed Transfer Credit Report approximately two to three weeks after you’re notified of your acceptance. This report will list all the courses you’ve taken at other institutions, indicate whether each course will transfer, and note the equivalent course at IUPUI for which you’ll get credit.
To view your Transfer Credit Report, go to One.IU and search for “transfer credits.” Select the “Transfer Credits” app box, then log in using your IUPUI username and passphrase. (If you haven’t created your IUPUI computing account yet, see step #2 of this checklist for instructions on how to do that.)
Respond to your offer of admission
Let us know whether you’ll attend IUPUI by using our online form to accept or decline your offer of admission. Transfer students do not have to pay an enrollment deposit.
Respond to your offer of admission
Select your housing and meal plan (if applicable)
You are not required to live on campus, but there are several on-campus housing optionsavailable to you. Because of the volume of housing applications we receive, we encourage you to apply early for housing. On-campus housing is guaranteed if you submit your housing application by March 15.
Meal plans are available to all IUPUI students, regardless of whether they live on or off campus. If you live in Ball Residence Hall, North Hall, or University Tower, you’re required to have a meal plan.
Apply for financial aid
If you’re applying for need-based financial aid, be sure to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as October 1 and no later than March 10. Remember to list IUPUI’s school code, 001813, on your application to ensure that your results are sent to IUPUI.
Complete the Immunization Compliance Form
Indiana state law requires IUPUI to inform all students of the risks of meningococcal disease, commonly known as meningitis, and the benefits of vaccination. While you are not required to be vaccinated against meningitis, you must complete the Immunization Compliance Form.
Attend your Transition Orientation Experience
As a newly admitted transfer student, you’ll participate in a three-part Transition Orientation Experience that will help you make a smooth transition to IUPUI.
Part 1: Jaguar Launch Transfer Module
The first step in your Transition Orientation Experience is the Jaguar Launch Transfer Module, during which you’ll prepare for your first academic advising appointment. This is an online module that will guide you through reading your Transfer Credit Report, resolving issues with undistributed credit, and finding advising resources.
You will begin Jaguar Launch immediately after reserving your orientation date. All students must complete the module before attending orientation.
Part 2: Transition Orientation Program
After you’ve completed the Jaguar Launch Webinar, you’ll attend a daylong Transition Orientation Program on the IUPUI campus. Designed to meet the unique needs of transfer students, the Transition Orientation Program includes a campus resource fair, a presentation from your academic unit, and sessions on topics such as information technology resources and health and wellness support.
Part 3: Orientation Advising Appointment
After you’ve attended your Jaguar Launch Webinar and Transition Orientation Program, you’ll meet your academic advisor during a one-on-one advising appointment to discuss your transfer credits and register for your first semester of classes.
Making an orientation reservation
We recommend that you make your orientation reservation as early as possible—you won’t be able to register for classes until you’ve completed all three parts of your Transition Orientation Experience
