Incoming Freshman

Welcome to the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology. Below, you will find some important information and resources for new students.

Admissions:

At IUPUI, there are two different types of admission:  Dual/Direct admission and University College admission. Students that are admitted to both University College and our School become Dual or Direct admission students.  These students meet with our office and Career Services in order to plan for success and work toward graduation and your future career.

University College is the academic home and advising resource for many students as they prepare for admission to a degree-granting school.  While in University College, students take introductory-level coursework to fulfill the requirements needed to be moved into the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology.  University College students have specialized academic advisors and career consultants available to help you plan for academic success and support you as you work toward transitioning into our school.

New Student Advising:

Our office provides information, guidance, and advice for all freshman students until they fulfill their freshman requirements or specific requirements set by the degree-granting department.  Once you have met the requirements and/or have been accepted into your program, advising will be done by the specific department you are earning your degree from.

Orientation:

Orientation is just the beginning of your future at IUPUI.  All IUPUI students are required to attend orientation as they transition into the University.  For more information on the orientation process, including how to register and how to prepare, visit http://orientation.iupui.edu
