Get ready to discover your full potential

Welcome to IU Kokomo! We can't wait to meet you. If you are starting classes in January 2024, we will help prepare you for success via our New Student Orientation process.

Steps to start strong: 

  1. Confirm you are officially admitted to campus. If you have not received an admissions decision, email iuadmis@iuk.edu. Your admissions decision and welcome packet will be mailed to your home address. Inside, you will find your IU student ID number and other important materials.

  2. Create your IU computing account by creating your first IU account if you haven’t already done so. For assistance, please contact the IT help desk by calling 765-455-9315. These accounts are necessary for class registration.

  3. Call 765-455-9405 to schedule your onboarding appointment after your IU account is created. Your academic advisor will help you register for spring courses.
  4. Complete the Starting Strong Canvas Module. Once you’ve created your IU username and password, we will add you to a Canvas site to get prepared for spring. Learn how to get your:
      • Crimson Card
      • Parking permit
      • Textbooks

    Canvas Log in

  5. Join us on campus January 4, 2024, from 1 p.m.- 4 p.m. for new student orientation. RSVP if you plan to attend to get tips from IU Kokomo students and faculty on how to succeed, learn the basics of IUK technology, and gain valuable information about student support services.

Be sure to check your IU email regularly for additional information from Advising, any document needs from offices like Admissions or Financial Aid, and opportunities for on-campus engagement and fun activities!

If you are starting classes in August 2024, please come back to this page in mid-February 2024 for updated guidance. Thank you! 

Transfer College Students

If you are transferring to IU Kokomo from another university, your first step is to schedule an individual advising appointment.

Please give us a call at 765-455-9405 to set that up at your earliest convenience. We’ll have a set of online onboarding materials that will help you be ready for classes. Don’t worry, once you are registered, we’ll make sure you get the info you’ll need!
