In a large university like Indiana University Bloomington, there are many policies and procedures that students encounter throughout the semester. It can feel overwhelming, but it’s important for students to understand how to navigate the processes that impact academic planning and schedules.
What Should I Take Next Semester? Enrollment Q and A webinar
Watch enrollment demonstrations and learn about how to navigate your academic resources in preparation for your "enrollment appointment".
- Clear HOLDS on record and take care of this action item ASAP.
- Add to your calendar your enrollment date and time from the Student Center
Note:Your enrollment date is extremely important, and you are expected to enroll on this date. Delaying enrollment risks your ability to secure a seat in the necessary courses for degree progress.
- Plan your semester by tracking your degree progress and reviewing the academic bulletin for degree requirements
- Review enrollment steps
- Enroll online through your Student Center. Students do not need an advisor present to enroll.
Note: First, enroll in open sections for degree progress, then waitlist a preferred section. If no sections are available for a course that you MUST take, then join waitlists. Stay patient and remember enrollment is an ongoing process.
- Understand how Waitlists work before setting one up!
Note: Academic Advisors and instructors DO NOT have authority to override a waitlist.
- Check the final exam schedule and resolve any conflicts using the “Add, Drop, Swap” functions. Watch the Student Center Videos for help on changing your schedule.
- Consult the IUB official calendar for important enrollment-related deadlines (e.g. the Auto W deadline) for each term.
- Generally, you have the first week of the course session to drop a class without earning a W on your transcript, but the specifics can vary by semester/term. Consult the IUB official calendar for details.
- The Automatic W Deadline refers to the last date a student can withdraw from a class (by submitting an eDrop request), earning a grade of W on the transcript.
- BUS courses do not accept late adds/eAdds after the first week of the course.
