At IU, how do I search the Schedule of Classes?

Campuses typically list an upcoming term's course offerings approximately one month before the start of registration (e.g., spring courses are usually listed in October; fall courses are usually listed in late January or early February). Visit your campus registrar's website for specific dates.

The Schedule of Classes tool will retrieve real-time information about course availability.

Tips for searching

When searching for classes, you must select at least two criteria. "Course Subject" is a required field; use it to search by subject area or department:

  • The subject area is a combination of the department abbreviation and the alphabetic prefix from the course number (e.g., for ENG W131, the subject area would be ENG-W).
  • If you search by department only (e.g., ENG), your search results will include every available class within that department, which most likely will be a very long list.
Note:
For a list of department abbreviations, visit your campus registrar's website.

You can use additional criteria to narrow your search, as described in the following sections. However, when you begin narrowing your search, be aware that you may be excluding classes from your search results. Search by subject and catalog number whenever possible.

When you're finished entering your search criteria, click Search.

Search options

The "Search for Classes" page has the following search options:

  • Institution: Select the appropriate IU campus.
  • Term: Select the appropriate term.
  • Course Career: Select the course career of the course you are seeking (e.g., Undergraduate, Graduate, or Law).
  • Course Subject: Enter the subject area (the department abbreviation combined with the alphabetic prefix from the course number, e.g., ENG-W). Alternatively, for a broader search, enter only the department abbreviation (e.g., ENG). For a list of department abbreviations, visit your campus registrar's website.
  • Course Number: Enter the course number without the alphabetic prefix (e.g., 131). In the corresponding drop-down list, leave is exactly selected.
  • Show Open Only: Select this option to find only classes with seats available. If you uncheck this box, your search results will include closed classes as well as open classes. Uncheck this box if you want to waitlist a class.

Additional search criteria

You may optionally select additional search criteria to narrow your search. (The "Course Subject" field is still required.) If you filled out the "Course Number" field, you won't need to use any other fields.

Additional search criteria include:

  • Meeting Start and End Time: Find a class that meets or ends at a specific time.
  • Days of the Week: To find or exclude classes that meet on certain days, use both the "Include" drop-down list and the checkboxes below.
  • Instructor Last Name: Search for classes by the last name of the instructor. In the drop-down list, select is exactly if you're sure of the spelling. Otherwise, select begins with or contains.
  • Class Nbr: If you know it, enter the section number (e.g., 1136) for a particular class meeting time.
  • Class Title Keyword: Enter a word or phrase from the class title (e.g., wildflowers, algebra, or United States). This searches for only the standard title and cannot find variable titles.
  • Class Description Keyword: Enter a word or phrase from the class description (e.g., romantic).
  • Minimum/Maximum Units: Narrow your search based on a maximum or minimum number of course credit units (i.e., credit hours).
  • Course Component: Search for a particular type of class (e.g., Lecture, Discussion, or Laboratory).
  • Session: Search for classes that meet during a particular session within a term (e.g., Eight Week - First, Summer Session 2, or Intensive Session 3) or throughout the Regular Academic Session. Not all sessions are available every term.
  • Mode of Instruction: Search for classes based on how they're taught (e.g., In Person, Independent/Directed Study, or 76-99% Online Interactive).
  • Campus: You can use the "Campus" drop-down list to narrow your search only if you already selected an institution. It allows you to search for classes at your chosen institution that meet on a different campus. For example, if you chose IUPUI for "Institution", you can search for classes offered at the Columbus Campus.
  • Location: You can use the "Location" drop-down menu to narrow your search only if you already selected an institution. It allows you to search for classes at your chosen institution that meet at a special location. Available values will differ depending on the institution you choose. For example, if you select Bloomington for "Institution", you can search for classes that meet at Bradford Woods or Bloomington High School South; alternatively, if you select Kokomo for "Institution", you can search for classes that meet at Kokomo High School South or YMCA, Kokomo.
  • Course Attribute 1 and 2: You can use the "Course Attribute 1" and "Course Attribute 2" drop-down lists to narrow your search only if you already selected an institution and a term. Available values will differ depending on the institution and term you choose. For example, if you select IUPUC for "Institution" and Fall 2015 for "Term", you can narrow your search to classes that have the Arts and Humanities and Transfer Indiana Initiative attributes, or if you select Northwest for "Institution" and Fall 2015 for "Term", you can narrow your search to classes that have the IUN INTENSIVE WRITING SECTION and ONLINE INTERACTIVE attributes.
