New Student Orientation

Congratulations on being admitted to Indiana University East!

We are excited that you are going to be a part of the Red Wolves pack. All new students are required to attend a New Student Orientation. New Student Orientation is designed to help admitted students enroll at IU East. Our program will familiarize you with campus, academic programs and services, and extra-curricular opportunities. Orientation is a great way to meet IU East students, faculty, and staff.

Orientation is conducted prior to the start of each semester and attendance is mandatory for new students. Highlights of the program include:

  • An opportunity to connect with IU East faculty, staff, current students and your future classmates
  • Valuable information about Information Technology, Campus Resources, and Campus Life
  • Register for your first semester classes with your Academic Advisor
  • Create your student ID, the Wolf Card (this means we will be taking your picture!)

Step 2: Schedule your placement test

In order to place you in the most appropriate math course, IU East requires each admitted first-year student to take the Math Placement Test. This test should be taken before you attend New Student Orientation and enroll in classes. For preparation materials or to schedule your test, call the Office of Testing Services at (765) 973-8249.

Please note a $50.00 fee will be applied to your student account upon completion of orientation.

Just for Parents

Orientation isn't just for students. At IU East we believe that parents are instrumental in a student's success. During New Student Orientation we will spend time explaining campus safety, financial aid, and will have time to answer your toughest questions (and the simple ones too!). You will find that we all have one common interest - your student's success.

Transfer Students

Students transferring from another college or university must meet with an advisor before enrolling for classes. If transfer students would like to attend a New Student Orientation session they are welcome to but it is not mandatory. Once an advising appointment is made with a faculty advisor please contact the Transfer Coordinator at 765-973-8416 and inform her of your appointment, to ensure your transfer credit evaluation can be done before your advising appointment.
