Registration Guide - 2017 - 2018

The Registration Guide is designed for students who are ready to register for classes at IUPUI 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 IUPUI 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.


Faculty are expected to provide required textbook information to the Barnes and Noble bookstore at IUPUI prior to registration so that students are aware of the costs of textbooks for their classes.  While total compliance with this expectation is not possible, there is federal legislation that requires this practice to the practicable extent possible.  For complete information about the textbook legislation, click here and go to page 2: "(d) Provision of ISBN College Textbook Information in Course Schedules."
