If you choose to apply to IU Northwest online, you’ll create three different accounts in total:
Your guest account
The sole purpose of the guest account is to enable you to apply online.
Approximately two weeks after you create your guest account and submit your application, you’ll receive an email with your University ID number. (If you did not apply online, you will still receive an email after we’ve processed your application. That email will contain your University ID number.) You’ll use your University ID number to create your IU computing account, which will enable you to check the status of your application.
Your IU computing account
This is different than the guest account. You will create this account after you apply to check the status of your application. Creating two accounts helps us keep your personal information safe at all stages of the application process.
If you’re admitted to IU Northwest, you’ll eventually create a third and final account:
Your IU email account! You’ll continue to use this for your full academic career at IU Northwest.
