Register for Classes

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

Use the Schedule Builder to select times and add them to your shopping cart. You can also add class times to your shopping cart directly in your iGPS Plan, then click "Enroll" to complete registration.

Please note that just adding classes to your plan does not enroll you in those classes. You must complete registration in your Enrollment Shopping Cart. Check My Class Schedule to confirm that you've completed enrollment.

For instructions on how to enroll go to Student Central on Union or watch this video on How to Enroll from the Shopping Cart.

View registration holds in your Student Center. Click on "My Information" and then click on "Holds" 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.

View your Enrollment Date in SOAR (Student Online Advising Records), your Student Center, or in your iGPS Plan. Watch this video to learn How to Check Enrollment Dates.

Your Enrollment Date is the earliest date and time you can register for classes. It is set by the Office of the Registrar and is based on the total number of credits you have completed. You cannot change your enrollment date. The last day to register without a late registration penalty fee is the Friday before classes begin. For more detailed information on late registration, view the Late Registration accordion below.

Are the classes you want full? Waitlist! We encourage waitlisting because there is a possibility that you could get into your preferred class. Learn more about waitlisting and get tips from Student Central on Union.

Watch these videos for instructions on setting up and modifying waitlists:

Contact Student Central on Union if you need help setting up your waitlist.

Are you getting an error telling you that the class is restricted or that you haven’t met course requisites?

  • Look up the course in Class Registration or in your iGPS Plan.
  • Read the “Class Notes” for the section you’re trying to enroll in. Follow any instructions in the Class Notes.
  • Need to contact the instructor for permission? Look up their email in the IU Directory.
  • Haven’t met the course prerequisites? Contact your advisor to discuss appropriate alternate courses.

Sometimes holds or other issues prevent students from registering before the semester begins. If you're in this situation, here's what you need to know.

Late Registration begins the Friday BEFORE Classes Begin

  • Late Registration fees will be assessed beginning the Friday of the week before classes begin. See Student Central's website to look up the fee amount for the upcoming semester.
  • Register through your Student Center up through the Sunday of the first week of classes.

Registering During or After the Second Week of Classes

  • Starting the Monday of the second week of classes, adding a class requires instructor approval.
  • Contact the instructors for classes you plan to add as soon as possible to discuss your situation. If the instructor allows, begin attending class.
  • Submit add requests through the eDrop/eAdd task in One.IU.
  • Starting Monday of the third week of classes, late registration requires that you meet with an academic advisor to consult on your plan for the semester.
