Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin

Solving Registration Problems

The issues below represent three common reasons students are prevented from enrolling in a given term. Read below to understand the nature of the problem and suggestions for getting it resolved.

Registration Service Denials (Holds)

Academic checklist entries, immunization noncompliance, residence classification status, citizenship verification, and financial encumbrances will prevent you from registering for classes until you take corrective action. These entries, if any, are reflected in the Student Center via One.IU. If the Student Center reflects any holds, you must obtain a release for each entry. If the Student Center reflects any immunization noncompliance holds, you must provide immunization data to the Office of the Registrar. If the Student Center reflects an account encumbrance by the Office of the Bursar or by the Student Loan Administration, you must make payment and/or be cleared by the appropriate office.

Immunization Data Collection Requirement

A 1995 Indiana state law requires students to provide immunization data, or proof of religious exemption, to the Office of the Registrar. Students who do not comply with this requirement will be prevented from registering for future terms/sessions. See Immunizations via Student Central's website for more information on immunization requirements.

Residence Classification

Students returning to Indiana University after an absence of twelve or more consecutive months will need to provide additional information to the Office of the Registrar in order to clarify their residence status for fee-paying purposes. This information concerns employment, residential addresses and enrollment at other institutions of higher education during the period since their last semester enrolled on any campus of Indiana University. Following registration for each session, a residence audit of the enrollment files will identify returning students. E-mail requests will be sent to those returning students who have not yet submitted the electronic Residence Classification Audit form.
