Register for Classes
Students will register using OneStart.
OneStart is an online version of IU’s registration system and can be used anywhere you can access the Web. Detailed instructions for using OneStart are available online, or you can call for help at (574) 520-4451.
If you have not previously attended IU South Bend or any other IU campus, you must be admitted to the university before you can register for classes. Please contact the Office of Admissions for application materials and more information.
Review the academic calendar to determine the appropriate time periods for advance, open, and late registration.
Meet with your academic advisor to discuss your schedule and degree requirements. Your advisor will help you obtain section authorizations, course approvals, and checklist (hold) clearance, if required.
For advance registration, use OneStart to check the date and time of your registration appointment. This is not an appointment with your advisor, but the first time you may access the registration system for the upcoming semester.
A few notes about online registration:
dropping or adding courses from the time of your initial registration appointment through the predetermined drop/add and late registration period. Signatures and authorizations may be required depending on how far into the semester the schedule adjust is requested, and a late schedule adjustment fee may be charged.
OneStart is generally available Monday–Saturday, 7 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Sunday, 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
***Because of scheduled maintenance, the Student Center may be
unavailable at the following times:
Every Thursday, 5 a.m. to 6 a.m.
The second Sunday of every month, 12 midnight to 8 a.m.
You can to access the registration system from the date and time of your registration appointment through the first week of classes.
During the first week of classes, registration and schedule adjustments can be made online.
Online registration and schedule adjustment closes at the end of the first week of classes.
If a course is dropped, tuition and fees will be refunded on a percentage basis according to the semester refund schedule (see the academic calendar).

If you are eligible for financial aid but do not plan to complete the semester, you must review the information located at Withdrawals and Repayments for an explanation.
