Step Three

After you have submitted your application

Create your IU computing account and check your status.

If you have ever previously been enrolled in or participated in a program at any IU campus and were given a 10-digit University ID number or IU username, you will use the same ID number or username and follow these steps to set up your IU computing account. 

If you have forgotten your IU username, contact the UITS Support Center. If you have forgotten your University ID number, you must contact the Office of the Registrar.

  • You’ll use the ID number to create your IU computing account, which you need to check the status of your application. 

    Remember: you may have already created a guest account when you applied online. This is not the same as your IU computing account. The guest account was created for the sole purpose of submitting your application online. 

    Setting up your account

    1. Go to the Account Management Service (AMS).
    2. Enter your last name, date of birth, and University ID number in the fields provided. Then click Continue.
    3. Read the Guidelines for Appropriate Usage, which are rules and policies for IT account use at IU. After you have read the guidelines, enter Yes to agree to these policies. Then click Continue.
    4. Enter the passphrase you want to use in both fields. For information on selecting a valid and secure passphrase, see passwords and passphrases.
    5. Enroll in the Passphrase Self-Service Reset System. If you forget your passphrase, this tool will enable you to reset it yourself without having to visit a UITS Support Center walk-in location in person.
    6. Once you have entered at least three questions and answers, select Done to complete your enrollment in the Passphrase Self-Service Reset System.
    7. You will want to save this information. You will need your account information each time you log in to your IU computing account. You can save as a PDF, or choose to select Page Print if you want to print a copy of your account you can log in to some services.
  • Now that you’ve created your IU computing account, you’ll be able to check the status of your application and To Do List in One.IU

    You’ll find the To Do List helpful. This list will tell you when our office has received each of your application materials. Please be aware that after your items are received, it may be up to four weeks before you can see this online. Please be patient and check back frequently. 

    If you receive an email from us asking you to complete your application but you just sent the missing materials, assume that the email was sent before we received your materials or that they have not been processed yet. 

    To check the status of your application

    1. Log in to One.IU.
    2. Type "application status" into the search box at the top and click on the "Application Status" app box.
    3. Log in using your IU username and passphrase (not your guest account information) to see the status of your application to Indiana University Northwest.

    To find your To Do List

    1. Log in to One.IU.
    2. Type "to do list" into the search box at the top and click on the "To Do List" app box.
    3. Log in using your IU username and passphrase (not your guest account information) to see your To Do list.

    If you have any outstanding items listed, your application will not be considered complete. Send all outstanding To Do List items to our office, or contact us for additional questions.
