Students should review course offerings prior to the start of registration. Each student must assume responsibility for ensuring that he/she knows the academic requirements for the degree being pursued.

4. Check your Registration Appointment Time

During the priority registration period, students are given specific times to register. You can check your time by visiting My Registration Appointment  from the Student Self-Service section on the left, on the Services tab in OneStart. You will need to login first, using your user id and password, the same as used for e-mail or Oncourse. You can register at or after your appointment time.

Students registering after the priority period don’t need registration appointments, but must be eligible to register. If you previously attended IUPUI but are not enrolled in the current term and wish to enroll, contact the registration appointment line at 274-1519 on or after the date specified in the academic calendar.

Students who are enrolled on another IU campus or who were last enrolled on another IU campus but did not graduate, should complete the inter-campus transfer form.

5. Obtain Any Necessary Course Authorizations or Course Permissions

Certain courses, such as those marked PERM (permission) or RSTR (restricted) must be approved by the department or school offering the course before you register. Visit the authorization link for more information on this and other enrollment restrictions.

You can see if permissions have been granted by visiting; My Class Permissions (page 5);from the Student Self-Service section on the left, on the Services tab in OneStart.

6. Check for any Holds on your record

All students must read and acknowledge an Immunization Compliance Form that outlines important information about meningitis. If you donít access and acknowledge this information, a hold will be placed on your record. For more information and instructions on how to comply, click here.

Be sure there are no academic or financial holds that will prevent you from registering. Some schools or departments may place a hold on your registration until you have been advised.
