  • Set up your IU computing accounts

    To create your computing account, you’ll need your University ID number, which was included in your letter of admission.

    Creating your IU computing account

    If you already have a computing account, you can follow the prompts to create your IU email account.  

    1. Search for and select “Create My First IU Account” in One.IU.
    2. Read the Guidelines for Appropriate Usage, which are rules and policies for IT account use at IU, and agree to these policies.
    3. Enroll in the Passphrase Self-Service Reset System. If you forget your passphrase, this tool will enable you to reset it yourself without having to visit a UITS Support Center walk-in location in person.
    4. You will want to save or record your account information in a secure place. You will need this information each time you log into your IU computing account.
    5. Exit. It may take up to two hours before you can log into some services.

    If you have ever previously been enrolled in or participated in a program at any IU campus and were given a 10-digit University ID number or IU username, you will use the same ID number or username and follow these steps to set up your IU computing account.

    If you have forgotten your IU username, contact the UITS team.

  • Access your IU email account

    Your IU email is the official method of communication. Your professors, academic advisors, and other staff members use email as their primary way of communicating with you so be sure to check your email often.

    You will begin receiving emails from many offices on campus. Included in this communication will be important deadlines and information that you will not want to miss!

    Accessing your IU email

    Once your IU computing accounts have been created you can access your IU email several ways:

  • Secure dual credits/AP exams

    If you have taken college courses while in high school, you should request official transcripts or test scores be sent to IUPUC. In order to better schedule classes for your first semester, your academic advisor needs official final grades and test scores.

    • For college or university transcripts, please contact the college and request an official transcript to be sent to IUPUC.
    • For AP test scores, contact the College Board and request a copy of your scores to be sent to IUPUC.
    • If you have completed dual credit from an IU campus (either on campus or through the Advanced College Placement), no action is needed - those credits are already applied to your transcript.

    Send transcripts or AP Exam scores to:

    4601 Central Avenue
