Congratulations on your acceptance to IU Southeast! We want you to be successful in college, so all new students are required to attend the New Student Orientation program prior to beginning classes at IU Southeast. Orientation is the first step in your transition to IU Southeast.
You will partner with knowledgeable students, faculty, and staff who will guide you through your orientation. The program will help you discover and learn about the many resources that IU Southeast has to offer. You will also meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, and learn about everything you will need to know for your first semester.
Remember, orientation is all about answering your questions—so, along the way, never hesitate to ask!
Due to COVID-19, all New Student Orientation activities, including registration for Fall 2020 classes, will be delivered virtually.
Below are some common questions:
Yes, we still want you to register for an orientation date.
An email confirmation is distributed following online registration.
If you registered and did not receive a confirmation email, please contact Cayla Maurer at 812-941-2366 or email@example.com.
Our goal is the help you make the transition to IU Southeast as smooth as possible. Orientation provides you with information about academics, campus resources, services and support systems, and much more. You will be introduced to current students, other incoming students, and your academic advisor.
No, orientation is not mandatory. However, we highly encourage you to go through the virtual orientation as there is a lot of important information on how to register for classes, how to receive your CrimsonCard, and how to setup an appointment with your academic advisor. All the information in the modules is designed to help you succeed at IU Southeast.
We are not hosting campus visits at this time. However, virtual tours, phone calls, and other alternative means are available.
The New Student Programs Office is working on refunding all guest payments via PayPal. Once this refund has gone through, you will receive an email from our office.
Yes. On your registered orientation date, you will get a link to meet other incoming students and orientation leaders. This is your chance to talk to others and ask questions. You will receive more information about this via your IU email.
You can schedule an appointment with your academic advisor online.
There are two Transfer Student Orientations on August 12th and 17th that have information specifically for you. However, transfer students may attend any new student orientation.

Most students are required to take one or more placement tests to ensure they can register for classes. Make sure that you have determined which tests you need and have completed them.
Indiana state law requires IU students to provide proof of their immunization status. While this requirement does not impact your ability to enroll in your first semester, you will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters until you are compliant with the IU immunization requirements.
Your Crimson Card is your university student ID card. In order to receive your Crimson Card during orientation, submit an approved photo at least seven days prior to attending your orientation.
