Choosing Courses

Choosing the courses you take with care contributes to academic success.  If you are interested in the material covered in your classes, you’re more likely to do well in them. Fortunately, researching courses is easy and fun using these great tools.

  • The Schedule of Classes provides a full list of the classes being offered at IU Bloomington each term, including class meeting times and locations, the instructor’s name, and other important class notes.
  • Academic Bulletins include basic descriptions for all courses taught by each school or academic unit. Note: Not all courses appearing in the bulletins are taught each term.
  • The iGPS Course Search utilizes an “open-ended” search box to browse for classes by interests and/or academic subjects. Click on iGPS Information for additional information and trainings related to this iGPS feature.
