Many course sections have mandatory prerequisites which are listed in the school bulletins or in the online Schedule of Classes. Class Search within SIS Student Center provides real-time course availability and the open or closed status of individual classes. Each class has a Details Button button which leads to more information specific to that section including, textbook, course descriptions, class notes and prerequisite details.

Each student is responsible for meeting the published prerequisites for each course requested. After each enrollment period, schools and departments may review the completion of prerequisites of registered students. The academic units have the authority to administratively drop a student from a course for which the student has not fulfilled the published prerequisites.

See Drop/Add and Late Drop/Add procedures in this bulletin.

The Registration Agreement

When you register, the University reserves specific class spaces for you and commits resources to provide the instruction you have selected. On your part, you assume the responsibility for paying those course fees or for notifying the University if you decide not to attend.

The availability of courses is subject to change. A section may be cancelled due to low enrollment or departmental staffing considerations. The department cancelling a class will notify registered students and help them make alternate arrangements, if necessary. Registered students also will be notified if the meeting time and/or location of a course has changed since the student registered.

Your registration will not automatically be cancelled for nonpayment of fees. You must either pay your fees or notify us if you do not intend to return to the Bloomington campus. By cancelling your registration by the fee payment deadline, your class spaces will be released in time to be available to other students.

If you decide to cancel your registration, contact Student Central on Union, 408 N. Union Street.

Fee Payment

Indiana University provides account statements electronically. The initial fall term account statement will be generated in August and an e-mail notification will be sent to your IU e-mail account when the bill is available on the web for viewing and printing. Students may create access for parents and other third parties through 3rd Party User Access which will also allow those users to view the bill on the web. Connect to One.IU to access your statement.

The August account statement will show the course fees for the fall term, the charges for any optional selections requested, and any other debts owed to the University. Payment will be due on September 10.


To avoid a late payment penalty, the student’s payment must be received in the Office of the Bursar by September 10.

Late Payment Fee

A late payment fee will be assessed to the accounts of all students whose payments are not received in the Office of the Bursar by the due date on the statement. A late payment fee will be assessed in each month your account remains unpaid. Refer to Late Payment Fee in the Financial Information section for additional information.

Monitor your account and access your statement online through One.IU. Failure to receive the bill notification will not be accepted as a reason for missing the payment deadline.

Important Note about Withdrawal

Failure to pay does not withdraw you from all classes. Students who wish to cancel their Bloomington campus enrollment with the Office of the Registrar for a future term can do so up through the first week of classes via the Student Center. Should you decide not to attend the Bloomington campus for Fall 2017, you may also notify the Office of the Registrar, in writing, by September 10, 2017. There is no automatic cancellation of your enrollment for nonpayment. If you do not request that your registration be cancelled, you risk receiving grades of F in your courses. You will also be responsible for all course fees, plus any applicable late fees, through the time you complete a total withdrawal. (See Fee Refund Policy in the Financial Information section.)

Sponsored Students

For those sponsored students for whom the Office of the Bursar has on file an authorization covering the fall term, credits will be applied in the amount to be billed to the sponsor. The account statement available to the student in August will reflect the amount which the student is to pay by September 10.

Financial Aid Recipients

The student’s electronic account statement will show the amount of anticipated financial aid awarded fall term, provided:

  • the student’s account has not been encumbered by the Student Loan Administration; and
  • the student has met the enrollment and financial eligibility requirements for the financial aid awarded.

The account statement available to the student will reflect the total to be paid by the student by the due date.

Actual financial aid awards will be credited to the student’s account 10 days prior to the first day of classes. If, for any reason, eligibility requirements are not met within 30 days after that date, the student will be responsible for payment and is subject to late payment fees and other penalties.

Disbursement of Refunds

Financial aid awards will be credited to students’ accounts and applied to their financial obligations to Indiana University. Any remaining amount will be refunded to the student via direct deposit to the student’s chosen financial institution. Students are directed to the Direct Deposit app at One.IU to provide the required banking information.
