The Schedule of Classes will be available by October 18th. The link can be found
in the Student menu under the Banner Self Service tab at my.iwu.edu. Please keep in mind, due to the ever-changing pandemic situation and needs for
social distancing, all classes are subject to cancellation, change of meeting time,
and/or instructor, and/or instructional mode. Changes will be updated to the Web

STEPS TO REGISTRATION
Step I: Check your Degree Evaluation/Degree Audit
Before meeting with your advisor, check your degree evaluation/degree audit through
my.iwu to see what courses you need to complete for your general education or major requirements.
Draw up a proposed schedule and bring it with you to your appointment. Make sure
you are covering unmet needs in your degree program and that the class times of the
courses you wish to take are not in conflict. Instructions regarding how to generate
and read your degree evaluation can be found at: https://www.iwu.edu/advising/scheduling
Step II: Meet with your academic advisor
Do not wait until the last days to begin the registration process. Your advisor’s
unavailability on one day, even though that day may be the last day for advance registration,
is not sufficient reason to waive that requirement. Please make an appointment to
meet with your academic advisor between October 20th and October 29th. You must obtain
a registration PIN from your advisor – you will not be able to register until you
do. The Registrar’s Office cannot give you your PIN.
Step III: Register for classes
You must enter your class selections via the IWU registration web site. You may use
any computer connected to the internet. The registration web site can be accessed
Beginning October 18th, you may check your registration day and time on the my.iwu.edu
web site. This can be found on the Banner Self Service tab under Student menu and
It is your responsibility to complete the registration process and to inform your
advisor of any changes not discussed during your advising appointment.
If you experience difficulty with registering on the web you may come to the Registrar’s
Office for assistance. However, your registration can only be processed after the
beginning of your assigned registration time.
