Student Information

Note to parents/guardians: If you have multiple children applying (or who have applied) for admission, each student will be required to create their own accounts with a unique student email address.

This account uniquely identifies you with the Office of Admissions. This account cannot be used for multiple individuals. Therefore, we require a unique email address per account.

Do not use nicknames.

(This account can only be used for you. You may change your birth date this one time, so please ensure you're setting it accurately to your birth date.)
(Enter your current email address carefully, it cannot be changed after account creation or re-used for another account. This is our primary method of correspondence.)

Permanent Address

Parent/Guardian Information (Optional)

This email address may be used on multiple accounts and will be used for family correspondence.

Security Questions

If you forget your password, you will be asked to answer your security question and provide your birth date in order to verify your identity. If the security question is answered successfully and your birth date matches, you will be allowed to reset your password.

For your security and convenience, make sure the answer to your security question is:

  • at least five characters in length.
  • something only you will know.
  • not related to your password in any way.
  • unlikely to change over time.
  • extremely difficult for others to guess, even if they see your security question.

Some examples of good security questions are:

  • Who was my favorite elementary school teacher?
  • What was the model of my first car? (What was the first car I ever drove?)
  • What is my favorite (or least favorite) movie? (substitute band, song, book, or author for movie)
  • Where did I go on my favorite vacation?

DO NOT lose your account information. This account will be used throughout your admission process at Iowa State University.
