Graduate and Diploma

Before you arrive for new student orientation, please set up your personal IU computer and email accounts. For most students, once you have your Indiana University ID number, you can set up your IU email and computer accounts. You should find your IU ID number at the bottom of your letter of admission to the Jacobs School of Music. If your ID number is not listed, please contact the Music Admissions office at or 812-855-7998.

Set up your account

Some students (in particular, international students but also some domestic students) will not be able to set up these accounts until a few weeks before orientation (sometimes the university records system is not updated with some new students until that time). Therefore, if you are not able to set up your accounts on your initial attempt, please try again a few weeks before orientation. If you try shortly before orientation and are still not able to set up your account, please email, and we will try to assist you.

At the end of the process, you will have an IU Network ID and passphrase (used to log on to IU computers), and an IU email account. Be sure to write down/remember your IU username and passphrase. You will use these for accessing your IU email account, logging in to IU computers, and for registration.

The Music Graduate Advising office often needs to send important notices and reminders to graduate students, and to do this, email is usually used. Email is considered an official form of communication by Indiana University, and it is each student's responsibility to regularly check their IU email accounts. You can set your IU email account up so that it is automatically forwarded to another account.

About IU email

Official university email accounts are available for all registered students. The university reserves the right to send official communications to you by email with the full expectation that you will receive and read these emails in a timely fashion. As a student, you are expected to check your email on a frequent and consistent basis in order to stay current with university-related communications. By doing so, you also avoid going over your email quota and missing important messages.

If you choose to have your email forwarded from your official university email address to another address, you do so at your own risk. The university is not responsible for any difficulties that may occur in the proper or timely transmission or access to email forwarded to any other address, and any such problems will not absolve students of their responsibility to know and comply with the content of official communications sent to their official IU email addresses.

Please review IU's Communication Policy.

International students

If you are an international student, you have different orientation requirements. Be sure to review all information from the Office of International Services before making your travel arrangements.
