    How to Register for Classes

    For every semester you are at IUP, you need to register for classes one semester in advance. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you need to do. 

    Undergraduate students should plan on registering for 15 credits each fall and spring to graduate on time.

    Step 1: Visit MyIUP

    Sign in to MyIUP, where you’ll want to do two things:

    Check for Registration Hours

    Look on your MyIUP home page to see if you have this message showing under “My Alerts”:

    • Records indicate that you may have a hold on your account that will prevent you from registering for class.

    Holds on your account can stop you from registering on time and prevent you from getting the courses you need. Follow the directions on the hold to resolve it as soon as possible. If you’re having trouble getting a hold cleared, the Academic Success Center’s Office of the Student Advocate can get you pointed in the right direction.

    Find Your Time Appointment and Put It In Your Calendar

    Now head to the MyIUP Academics page, look for the Course Registration and Textbooks box, then click on Registration Toolbox. Within the toolbox, click Prepare for Registration.

    All the registration time appointments for continuing students are also listed below. If you need them, we have detailed instructions on checking your registration status.

    Step 2: Meet With Your Advisor

    Contact your advisor and make an appointment to meet with them. At your meeting, discuss what courses you should enroll in next semester and get your alternate PIN.

    Meeting with your advisor is vital! You need to make sure you’re taking the correct courses, in the correct order, so you can complete your requirements for graduation on time. Don’t wait until the last minute. The Academic Success Center has advice on meeting with your advisor.

    Not sure who your advisor is? Your advisor’s name and contact are on the MyIUP Academics page (look for the My Advisor section).

    Step 3: Ready, Set, Register!

    When your time appointment arrives, go to the MyIUP Academics page, find the Course Registration and Textbooks box, and get started. We have detailed instructions on how to register.

    If there isn’t room in a particular section, you might be able to add yourself to a waitlist. We have detailed instructions about waitlisting.
