Before You Arrive
There are several things you can do in advance::
  1. Obtain a recent generation Laptop Computer.
    See the Buying Recommendations section for details.  Allow ample time for ordering and shipping.
  2. Set up your Uniqname login account.
    After you submit your enrollment deposit, you should receive your One Time ID (OTID) and instructions to create your "uniqname" login account and password for access to iMpact and other University services. 
  3. Update your iMpact Personal Profile.
    iMpact users such as other students, faculty, our web recruiters, and our administrative staff will use this to contact you, so you will want to be sure your profile is correct and up to date.  You may need to update this information again after you arrive on campus since your address, phone number and e-mail will probably change.  Use the menu items on the left menu bar in "Personal Profile" to update the various fields.  For name and education changes, contact our Admissions office.
  4. Watch the online DiscoverIT Presentation.
    Visit the DiscoverIT page to download the handout and watch the video orientation.
