Step 1 - Know Your Priority Registration Date
Priority registration week for winter, spring, and summer classes is November 2 through November 6. All current students are assigned a priority registration date. You can register on or after your assigned date. Registering on this date will give you the best chance of getting your ideal course schedule. Priority registration date assignments will be viewable on September 18. To view your priority registration date, visit your Student Center and click "Start". Your registration date is listed below "Enrollment Dates".
Step 2 - Review Your Degree Requirements
Understanding the requirements for your degree enables you to take ownership over your education, make informed decisions about the classes you take, and stay on track to graduate on time. IU Southeast provides several ways for students to keep track of their degree requirements.
Degree Maps: The Degree Map for your program offers a semester-by-semester list of courses needed to complete your degree in four years. It also allows you to create a personalized plan using the iGPS Plan functionality. Consult IU’s Knowledge Base for help navigating Degree Maps.
Academic Advisement Report (AAR): If you have a declared major, you can view your degree requirements through the AAR, a personalized degree progress report. For help navigating the AAR, consult the New Student Resource Page or the AAR tutorial video.
What-If Academic Advisement Report: If you are exploring majors or would like to add a minor, you can use the What-If report to view degree requirements for potential fields of study. For help navigating the What-If report, consult the What-If tutorial video.
Step 3 - Review Course Offerings When the Schedule Goes Live
The Schedule of Classes for Winter, Spring, & Summer will be available to view online on Monday, September 28.
As you review the schedule of classes, make note of any pre-requisites, required permissions, or other special circumstances for the courses you are interested in. Pre-requisites can found in the “notes” section for each course. Courses requiring special permission will have “PERM” listed under the course number. You must contact the department offering the course to gain permission to enroll.
Step 4 - Put Courses in Your Shopping Cart
Make enrolling on your priority registration date easy by placing courses in your shopping cart beforehand. You can access your shopping cart through the Student Center. Select “Enrollment Shopping Cart” on the left below “Academics”. For help adding courses to your shopping cart, view the Shopping Cart tutorial video.
When planning your courses, remember that taking at least 15 credit hours during each fall or spring semester helps you stay on track to graduate in four years!
Step 5 - Review Holds on your Record
Holds (or “service indicators”) may be placed on your record to provide information or to alert you to take an action before registering for classes.
Positive Service Indicators give you information about your record; in some cases, they inform you of things you need to do. These "holds" do NOT prevent you from registering, but some holds will. Some schools or departments may place a hold on your registration until you have been advised. Most financial holds will restrict you from registering as well as from obtaining official transcripts or your diploma.
You can see if there are any holds on your record by visiting the Student Center and looking in the box titled “Holds” on the right-hand side. Select “Details” to find information about how to resolve the hold and whom to contact if you have questions.
Step 6 - Make an Advising Appointment
Your academic advisor can help you map out your courses, in addition to helping you set and reach personal and professional goals. Set up an appointment with your advisor through the Student Appointment Scheduler, or find the phone number for your advising office by visiting the Advising Contact Information webpage.
Remember that your advisor is here to help, but you must assume responsibility for knowing your degree requirements. Also note that if you do not have an advising hold on your account, you are not required to meet with an advisor before registering.
If you are not able to meet with your advisor before your priority registration date, you can register for classes on your own, then make any needed changes during your advising appointment.
Step 7 - Enroll in Classes
On or after your priority registration date, enroll in classes! To enroll in all classes in your shopping cart, simply select “click to enroll in class(es) in your shopping cart” in the “Shopping Cart” section. For help with registration, contact the Office of the Registrar at 812-941-2240.
Former students or students of other campuses may need to reapply or complete the intercampus transfer form in order to register. If you previously attended IUS but do not see a link to the current term for registration, please contact the Admissions Office and your School or Division. Students who are enrolled on another IU campus or who were last enrolled on another IU campus but did not graduate, should complete the intercampus transfer form.
After you enroll in classes, please refer to the Academic Calendar for important dates, such as the final date to alter your schedule and the semester start date. Also, don’t forget to order your textbooks and review your course schedule before classes begin.
