Once you’ve researched your degree requirements and met with an advisor to review your course plan for the next semester, it’s time to register for classes!

  • Register Using Your iGPS Plan

    Your iGPS Plan is the easiest way to register for classes. Use your individualized, 4-year plan as the base to build your schedule.

    Select or Deselect classes from your Plan to choose classes for your schedule.

    Click “Generate Schedules.”

    Step 3: Finalize Registration through the Enrollment Shopping Cart

      • Once you’ve added a Schedule to your shopping cart, click “Update Cart.”
      • Seeing errors about holds or course requisites and restrictions?
        • For Holds, see “Learn about Registration Holds below.
        • For course requisites and restrictions, read the “Class Notes” in iGPS Course Search for the section you’re trying to add.
      • Everything “Ok to Add”? Click “Go to Cart.”

    Step 4: Verify Your Schedule

      • Go to One.IU > My Class Schedule > click “list view” to see detailed information about class meeting times, locations, instructor, and class notes.
  • Learn about Registration Holds

    To view all your registration holds, go to One.IU > Student Center > Holds. Click “details” to find out how to get the hold removed. You will want to have holds on your record released before your enrollment date for the next term.

    To find out about University Division Academic Advising holds go to University Division Holds.

  • When can I register?

    View your Enrollment Date in One.IU > Student Center > Enrollment Date. The system defaults to the next term (e.g. Summer). Click “details” to change to a different term (e.g. Fall).

    Early Enrollment is the period set aside each semester for continuing students to enroll in classes for the next term. The date and time at which you can access the system and begin enrolling in classes is referred to as your enrollment appointment. It is set by the Office of the Registrar based on the total number of credits you have completed. You won’t be able to enroll in classes before the time set for your enrollment appointment, but there are things you can do to be ready when your turn comes.
