Summer Orientation

Welcome to Virtual Orientation 2020!

Welcome to IUPUI! The 21st Century Scholar Success Program provides programming, resources, and assistance to scholars throughout their college experience. We also help students to maintain their scholarship by creating success plans and proving resources. Our mission is to help you maintain your 21st Century Scholarship, be successful in college, and graduate on time.

Follow the steps below to learn how your 21st Century Scholarship can be applied and renewed each year. 

Important Information for Fall 2020

Step 1: Understand your Scholarship Requirments

Your 21st Century Scholarship covers 100% of your tuition and mandatory fees. The mandatory fees include the technology fee, general fee, and repair and rehabilitation fee. All students pay these fees. The scholarship does not cover housing, meal plans, books, or other class fees such as studio fees or lab fees. The scholarship will be applied to your financial aid account in mid to late July.

To maintain and renew your scholarship you need to meet the requirements of the College Scholar Success Program.

Peer Mentoring Program

All first-year students will participate in the 21st Century Scholars Peer Mentoring Program. In the mentoring program, you will participate in two meetings per month with other first-year scholars. These meetings will be led by 21st peer mentors and cover a variety of topics and information that will be useful to you as you transition to IUPUI and college life. You also be meeting one-on-one with a peer mentor throughout your first year. 


It is a chance to get to know other 21st Century Scholars and have a support system throughout your entire first year. The peer mentoring program will also help you meet the requirements of the College Scholar Success Program by providing you with a mentor for your first year of college.

Information will be sent out via email in early August about the peer mentoring program.

Step 2: Update Scholar Track

ScholarTrack will be used during college to help you maintain your state financial aid. Before classes start, you need to log-on to your ScholarTrack account and upgrade it. This is done by clicking on your name in the upper right corner and selecting "Upgrade account". It will take a few days to see the changes in your account.  Upgrading your account will switch the view from the high school platform to the college platform. Also, make sure to change your ScholarTrack account email to an email that you will have access to during college. 

Remember to write down your account credentials so you can access ScholarTrack regularly.
