Registering from Abroad

To register for IWU courses from abroad, you will need to consult with you academic advisor via e-mail.  You will be sent a notice from the International Office via e-mail about the dates for academic advising.  When advising begins, you will be able to see the course selections on the web via My.IWU; if you cannot access the online program, contact the Registrar's Office to request that a PDF version be sent to you via email.

Please see the Academic Calendar page for advising and registration dates.  For students abroad in fall 2013, registration will open on Friday, November 1, at 8:00am CST.  

Because you are off campus, you will need to choose your courses and contact your advisor to have those courses approved prior to your registration.  Your advisor can then send you your registration PIN, and you can then register yourself online.

You are also strongly encouraged to complete an electronic Course Registration Form, which the International Office will send you during advising.  The International Office and Registrar's Office will use that information if you are unable to register yourself from abroad.
