For IU Southeast students without good Internet access at home, UITS has just installed our first Hot Spot Lot behind Knobview Hall. Now students can access IU’s wireless services, including Eduroam and IU Secure, from the comfort of their car while keeping proper “social distancing.” Faculty and staff can use it, too!
The coverage area is located in Hickory Lot behind Knobview Hall. The map below shows the coverage area; closer to the building is best.
For non-students, IU Guest wireless is also available in this location.

Visit the IU Southeast Bookstore rental return webpage. Enter your Order ID (from the online invoice or the emails that were sent to you to remind you to return them) and the email that you used to rent the books. When you submit the information, a pre-paid UPS label will be created for you to use to ship the books back to the bookstore. Just package the books in a box securely and drop them at a UPS store or in any of the UPS drop boxes (depending on the size of the box).
Since all IU courses were moved online for the remainder of the spring semester, tuition and mandatory fees for courses will not change. However, some course fees may be adjusted. The campus is still working through the process of determining which course fees might be adjusted.
Students who live in one of the five on-campus lodges will receive a prorated credit, depending upon their move-out date. Students enrolled in the unlimited dining plan will receive a prorated credit. Housing and dining credits will be applied to any unpaid charges on the student’s bursar account. If the credit exceeds the amount due on the student’s account, the excess will be refunded during the first week of the fall 2020 semester. Students may request an earlier refund.
On campus tours will be temporarily suspended. Prospective students may take our virtual tour. Although campuses will not be hosting visitors at this time, please note that each Office of Admissions will continue to be accessible via phone and e-mail during their posted business hours for any questions you may have.
The library will remain open, but library hours will be reduced during this two-week period.
For phone assistance, please call (812) 941-2489. (Voice mail messages will be forwarded to librarians.)
At this time, in-person visits to all IU campuses are strongly discouraged. Previously scheduled visits are postponed indefinitely and the campus will contact you about virtual alternatives in the coming weeks. Information will be posted here and on the campus-specific sites when tours and groups visits resume for you to reschedule your campus visit. Although campuses will not be hosting visitors at this time, please note that each Office of Admissions will continue to be accessible via phone and e-mail during their posted business hours for any questions you may have.
Registration for the fall semester is currently open. Students are able to register and make schedule changes online through the start of the fall semester. Students that need to meet with an academic advisor to plan their fall classes should schedule an appointment in the Student Appointment Scheduler.
Advising appointments will be conducted via telephone or zoom.
IU Southeast has adapted an existing policy, the Student Initiated Grade Appeal policy, to offer an “S by Appeal” option for students who feel that their grade performance may have suffered as a result of the shift to online or other elements of the regional response to the COVID-19 pandemic. If, after final grades for Spring 2020 have posted, students want to opt to have a final course grade reflected on their transcript as a non-GPA relevant “S” or “P,” we have flexed the existing policy to allow that, if students request it in writing of their instructors; and the student has determined, with the help of their advisors, there are no ill downstream effects for them to taking this option for some or all classes. It is not mandatory to take an “S” or a “P,” as has happened at some universities; and it is our hope that all of our students will rise to the challenge and finish out the semester at the same grade performance level they would have normally. But this option is available.
Students will have until 14 calendar days after the start of Fall 2020 semester to request this option for Spring 2020 classes.
Classes for fall 2020 will be offered in a combination of in-person and online hybrid instruction as well as fully online instruction.
Below are descriptions of the types of courses offered. For reference, classes are termed synchronous (classes that require students and professors to be online at the same time) or asynchronous (students are given a time frame to complete online courses on their own schedule with professors providing materials, lectures, tests and assignments that can be accessed at any time.)
Students should expect instruction and assignments in online and face-to-face learning environments. 26% to 75% of the instruction is provided through asynchronous online or synchronous live video instruction from platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Canvas. The remainder of the instruction is provided through traditional face-to-face or in-person instruction. Regular on-campus meetings are required, and the schedule of classes notes which days and times students should reserve for face-to-face instruction. Faculty will let students know in their syllabus (course outline) exactly which days they should expect to appear on campus as many students will be broken into smaller groups for face-to-face instruction in accordance with IU safety protocols.
Hybrid Online—HD (formerly Hybrid Distance)
Students should expect instruction and assignments in virtual and online environments. 26% to 75% of the instruction is provided through asynchronous online education, where students will work on a timetable set by faculty in their syllabus (course outline) to complete coursework online. The remainder of the instruction is provided by synchronous live video instruction from platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Canvas. No on-campus meetings are required.
Students should expect the option of attending sessions in the classroom, participating online, or doing both. HyFlex presents the components of hybrid learning (which combines face-to-face or in-person with online learning) in a flexible course structure. Students can change their mode of attendance weekly or by topic, according to need or preference. Instructors provide course content for both participation modes and can tailor activities for each format. Faculty make students aware of their options for in-person or online participation through the syllabus (course outline).
The entire class will be taught online with both asynchronous and synchronous (live video conferencing) required. Videoconferencing will occur at the times listed for the course on the schedule of classes. Specific dates and times for video conferences will be more fully elaborated in the instructor’s syllabus (course outline).
Online Asynchronous—OA (formerly Online All)
Students should expect all of their learning to be online. 100% of instruction is provided entirely through asynchronous online education in which the student is not bound by place or time. No on-campus meetings are required. Any synchronous live video course activities will be optional and/or recorded for later viewing with no additional penalties or hardships for the student (eg., having to write a paper to “make up” for missing a live video lecture). Students will work on a timetable set by faculty in their syllabus (course outline) to complete coursework online.
Student should expect instruction for the overwhelming majority of their course to be online with minimal face-to-face learning environments or assessments. 76% to 99% of instruction is provided through asynchronous online education. Students are required to come to a physical campus location at least once during the semester, and the faculty syllabus (course outline) will make this date of attendance clear. Like 100% online classes, any synchronous live video course activities should be optional and/or recorded for later viewing.
Recreational sports and intramurals will be suspended for the Fall 2020 semester. The situation will be reevaluated throughout the semester to determine when it is safe to open to the campus student population.
The IU Southeast Activities Building and Fitness Center will be restricted to only student-athletes, coaches, and athletic staff until Spring 2021 or until reevaluated and safe to open to a larger segment of the campus.
If you suspect you have contracted the Coronavirus, please enroll in an IU Health Virtual Visit, where you will receive a health assessment and be given instructions on receiving a COVID-19 test. You will also be instructed about self-quarantine or other measures to protect you and those around you.
