Jump Start


Welcome Panthers!


Jump Start is an extended orientation program designed to facilitate the successful transition of underrepresented students to the University of Northern Iowa. Students from ethnic and racial minority groups and students who have participated in TRIO programs (such as Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search) are mailed invitations to Jump Start, and other students are welcome to contact Bailey Jimmison in Student Success and Retention (319-273-2332) if they are interested in participating as well.
