For other times, parking permit dispensers are located at each campus entrance. You may purchase a daily parking permit; place it on your dashboard. This allows you to park in any blue or red space for up to 24 hours. Please do not park in handicapped spots without the additionally required permit. Alternatively, you may park at meters; they have a three-hour time limit.

Are your classrooms handicapped accessible?
For questions about accessibility please call or email our office. If we are not able to accommodate your accessibility needs, we will refund your payment.

Courses

When can I sign up?
Registration is open until the first day of the class, as long as space remains. Many classes fill quickly, so we encourage you to register early.
How do I know if there is space available?

If a class is already filled, the box will be black and you will not be able to check it. You may call our office at (812) 941-2385, or email projectahead@ius.edu and request to be placed on a waiting list.

What happens if the course I select is full?

If the course you wish is full, you can request to be placed on a waiting list — write to projectahead@ius.edu or call (812) 941-2385. If space opens up in the class, we will advise you by e-mail and/or by phone.

If you paid by credit card, your account will not be charged.

Since you register online, you will be able to see whether space is available. Once you complete the necessary payment information, you are registered. If you provide an email address when you register, you will receive an automatic email confirmation within 24 hours.
Can a course be cancelled?

If you must cancel your enrollment in a course, please contact us at (812) 941-2385 (or email projectahead@ius.edu) as soon as possible; this will allow someone on a wait list to attend.

It is occasionally necessary to cancel, postpone, or change a course meeting date due to insufficient enrollment, instructor illness, inclement weather, etc. Please provide us with more than one way to contact you should this become necessary.

If the weather is bad and/or you must travel a significant distance to campus, you may wish to check the IU Southeast's website to ensure that the University is open.  The Campus Status is located at the bottom right of the homepage.

Can I make up missed classes?
Students may not make up absences. If an individual class session is cancelled due to an instructor’s illness or extreme weather, a make-up date will be scheduled. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled class, please email us in advance, and we will arrange to give you a credit for the missed class only.
