The Student Enrollment Center (SEC) coordinates functions across the university to provide enrollment services to prospective and current student through graduation. The SEC includes eight diﬀerent oﬃces to support our students: Registrar, Student Accounts, Financial Aid, Military and Veteran Services, Document Processing, Inbound Student Support, Admissions and Academic Advising for our distance education programs.
At Upper Iowa, we want to ensure students are protected in the event of a medical emergency. Though not required for domestic students, UIU strongly encourages all students to carry health insurance. If you do not have health insurance through a parent or guardian and would like to discuss how to find coverage, please contact the Director of Counseling and Wellness.
All international students are required, and will be automatically enrolled, in the UIU Student Health Insurance Plan. International students cannot waive participation in the plan. Since the cost changes from year-to-year, please contact the Center for International Education for rates at 563-425-5852 or email email@example.com.
Accident/Death. If a student should sustain a serious injury, notify Student Life (daytime) or Campus Police (day or night) immediately. A member of the staff will assist the injured student and assure that prompt medical care is received. In the event of the death of a student, the Dean of Students will notify appropriate family members. Residence hall staff will notify floor members and friends.

Health and Injury Insurance for Student-Athletes. If the student is a student-athlete participating in one of the many sponsored sports on campus, all injuries must be reported to the Athletic Training staff to ensure proper care and documentation. Each student-athlete is required to be covered by a primary insurance policy prior to the start of any athletics activity (practice, weights, meetings etc.). The student-athlete must also have a physical prior to the beginning of each academic year. According to the NCAA, this physical must be completed by one of the following providers: MD, DO, PA, or an NP. The physical form and all associated medical documentation asked for by the Athletic Training staff must be completed prior to any participation. Please contact the Athletic Training staff with any questions.

The Personal Accompaniment Safety Service will be provided from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. and will also provide service beyond this time on a request basis only. Contact Campus Police at (563) 425-5372.
