Jump Start FAQs

What is Jump Start?

Jump Start is an extended orientation program designed to facilitate the successful transition of students of color and historically underrepresented students to the University of Northern Iowa. Students from ethnic and racial minority groups and students who have participated in AVID and TRIO programs (such as Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search) are mailed invitations to Jump Start. Other students are welcome to contact jumpstart@uni.edu or 319-273-4705 if they are interested in participating as well.
