For Families

This is when you show your Hoosier pride

We are excited to welcome you and your student to the IU family. The IU pride runs far and deep—with over 725,000 IU alumni living around the world—ready to shout “I-U” at a moment’s notice. And we know that you are at the center of your student’s success. You’ve gotten them this far. Now let us help you get them the rest of the way. We hope the information we share helps you support your student as they begin their IU journey.

Our goal for our NSO program is always to prepare your student to be successful at IU. Make sure your student enters your email address in their Orientation Portal so we can send you information related to their NSO. They can even grant you guest access to the Orientation Portal.

Parents of international students

In addition to all this information, videos, and resources, you can also visit the Office of International Services website to find more resources and next steps specifically for international students. 

Videos on these pages were created before June 2021. We recommend that you connect with relevant IU offices for the most up-to-date information.
