Guide for Existing Students
The Registration Guide is designed for students who are ready to register for classes at IU Southeast as well as those needing to adjust their enrollment throughout the duration of a specific term.
In addition to this term-specific information, the Guide also provides students with information about their educational rights to access and privacy as defined by the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act and IU Southeast policy. Along with these rights, students are responsible for knowing and adhering to University policies, procedures and deadlines. Many of these policies and deadlines with respect to enrollment can be found on the Academic Calendar.
Meet with your Academic Advisor
It is always in your best interest to see your academic advisor.
Meet with your Academic Advisor in your School or Division and discuss the recommended and alternate courses required to meet your degree. If a course is "RSTR (restricted)" or requires "PERM (permission)", you must contact the School office of the department offering the course before you attempt to register.
You may also use your AAR (Academic Advising Report) as a tool to assist you in course
Each student must assume responsibility for ensuring that he/she knows the academic requirements for the degree being pursued. You may also use your AAR (Academic Advising Report) as a tool to assist you in course selection and meeting degree requirements.
Find your Registration Appointment
During the early (priority) registration period, students are given specific times to register. You can check your time by vising My Registration Appointment from the Student Center in One.iu.edu. You will need to login first, using your user id and passphrase, the same as used for email or Oncourse/Canvas. You can register at or after your appointment time.
Students registering during open registration do not need registration appointments, but must be eligible 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.
Review Course Offerings (Schedule of Classes)
Obtain Any Necessary Class Permissions or Authorizations
Certain courses, such as those marked PERM (permission) must be approved by the department offering the course before you register. You can see if permissions have been granted by visiting the Student Center in One.iu.edu.
You must meet certain criteria to enroll in a course marked RSTR. Consult with your academic advisor.
Review "Holds on My Record"
Holds that restrict services (negative service indicators)
Be sure there are no academic or financial holds on your record that will prevent you from registering. Some schools or departments may place a hold on your registration until you have been advised.
In addition, most financial holds will restrict you from obtaining other services, such as official transcripts or receiving your diploma.
You can see if there are any holds on your record by visiting the Student Center in One.IU.edu.
Holds that provide information (positive service indicators)
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 restrict services.
