Create My First IUPUI AccountAll newly admitted students must create a university technology account (you may also hear "university username and passphrase") in order to apply for housing, gain access to university email, computer labs, online services (including financial account and course registration), and more.
Steps to follow after admission:
Visit one.iu.edu and search for "Create my First IU Account."
Enter requested information
You will need to enter:
- Your last name (you may refer to this as your family name)
- Your date of birth (mm/dd/yyyy format)
- Your IUPUI university ID number
Read the User Agreement
You will be prompted to read and agree to the user agreement. Click "Yes" once you have read the information.
Select a username
The system will give you a list of available usernames you can select from. Keep note of what you select as this will be your username for the time you are at IUPUI. This will also be the first part of your email address.
Username - jkim233
Email address - firstname.lastname@example.org
Create your passphrase
Enter your passphrase according to the rules. Remember this passphrase! You will need it every time you try to access a university computer or program.
Select at least three different passphrase questions from the drop-down list and type the correct answers into the fields provided. These will be used to help give you hints if you forget your passphrase.
By default, IU provides everyone an email address with the @iu.edu domain. Click "Next" to continue.
Remember your information!
It is very difficult to change the passphrase from abroad. Once you set up your accounts, be sure to remember both your username and passphrase to prevent difficulty accessing campus accounts and applications.
If you need help with this process, your best option is to contact University Information Technology Services, or UITS.
