Orientation

New to college? We’re excited to welcome you this August!

We’re honored to know that you are planning to make IUK your new academic home. To help you get the best start on your college career during these uncertain times, we have designed an individualized process to coach you through campus orientation and course registration. There is a great deal to learn and do to be ready, and we are here to support you at every step!

Our main orientation and registration activities will take place virtually to ensure your safety and convenience. Our innovative process received rave reviews from new students last year, and we can’t wait to show you why. Please use the link below to select your two dates for one-on-one Zoom meetings with our Cougar Crew to get you prepared, oriented, and registered. Once you have your dates, come back to this page and keep reading.

Fall 2021 Registration

To be ready for your first Cougar Crew meeting, please make sure you complete the following:

  • Make sure you are officially admitted to campus. Email iuadmis@iuk.edu if you have not yet received an admissions decision.
  • Complete the College Success survey linked at the top of this page.
  • Set up your IU computing account, email account, and ALEKS math placement profile. Instructions are linked in the purple bar at the bottom of this page.

Once set up, be sure to check your IU Gmail regularly for additional information about your Cougar Crew meetings, any document needs from offices like Admissions or Financial Aid, and opportunities for on-campus engagement and fun activities! For example, we are planning on-campus opportunities in Summer 2021 so you can become familiar with the environment and get to know other students.

Hoping to connect with your academic advisor? Don’t worry – we have worked that into our process too. We will help you register for classes first so you can access open seats in courses as early as possible. Once you are registered, your Cougar Crew member will help you schedule a one-on-one advising meeting so you can make that important campus connection before classes start.

Transfer College Students

If you are transferring to IU Kokomo from another university, your first step to joining us is 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 ready for you that will help you be ready for fall classes soon. Don’t worry, once you are registered, we’ll make sure you get the info you’ll need!

How do I set up my official IU computing account and my ALEKS math placement profile?
