Search for courses using the iGPS Course Search


The iGPS (Interactive Graduation Planning System) Course Search is Indiana University's enhanced tool for finding courses and scheduled classes. Course Search combines data from the course catalog, campus bulletins, and the schedule of classes, making it easier for students to find the courses they want.

Course Search integrates with the iGPS Plan and the SIS Academic Planner.

The Course Search tool provides the same information as the SIS Class Search and Browse Course Catalog functionality; Course Search allows more effective keyword searching than does the SIS tool.

On this page:

  1. Go to iGPS Course Search.
    A link to "Course Search" is also available at the top of the "SIS Class Search" and "Browse Course Catalog" pages.
  2. Campus will be preselected for students. If desired, you may select a different campus.
  3. Degree Level will be preselected. To change this, use the checkboxes to add or remove a degree level.
  4. From the Offered drop-down list, select the term or terms to search.

    Any term searches any of the available terms.

  5. In the search box, type a search query. This can be a combination of one or more of the following:
    • Subject code, such as ENG-L
    • Course catalog number, such as 131
    • Partial course catalog number, such as 1xx
    • Department name, such as English
    • Keywords from the course title, course description, class description, or class attributes
  6. Click Go. Your search results will appear below.
  7. To change the campus, degree level, or term(s) searched, click Change Criteria. This will take you back to the original search page. You have the following options:
    • To change the search terms, type the new terms in the search box and click Go.
    • To narrow search results by GenEd requirement, credits, course level, subject area, or search terms, click one or more of the options on the left.
    • To advance through search results, click the page numbers at the bottom.
    • To view the course overview, click any title.
    • To view information for scheduled classes, select the term. This will display section details for the scheduled courses for that term.

Add a course to your iGPS Plan

  1. From the search results, click + Plan for the course you want to add to your plan.
  2. From the drop-down menu in the pop-up, select the term you would like to put the course into.

    Optionally, you can add any notes or reminders for yourself.

  3. Click Add.

    Alternatively, from the "Course Overview" page, select the term from the Add to Plan option at the top, and then click Add.

Other ways to access courses

  • To access courses from your campus registrar website, go to Course Browser.
  • You can also view the Schedule of Classes:
    1. Go to Class Search.
    2. To search for specific classes, use the drop-down menus and search criteria fields to choose a schedule and narrow your results. Alternatively, click Browse Course Catalog to view the offerings by campus or department.

      For most campuses, you can click a class's Details link for further information, including the books for each course.
