 Apply for graduation online at the Recorder’s Web site at www.indiana.edu/~college/recorder It’s
 good to apply well in advance of your planned for graduation date so that any potential problems can be
 spotted and hopefully corrected. Six to twelve months ahead is good. Remember: You must apply for
 minors by contacting the advisor in the minor dept. (except for BUS minors – See reverse side.)


Registering for Classes:
To officially register go to www.onestart.iu.edu
       You’ll need to login first. OneStart is a “live” system and is always up-to-date.

To more easily browse lists of classes go to http://registrar.indiana.edu and click on Class Schedule to see
what courses are available. Remember that this site is 24 hours behind the OneStart site as far as updated
registration information. If a class is close to being full, be sure to register promptly.

How are you doing? Keep track of your progress toward your degree.
       Go to OneStart -> Student Center -> My Academics. Then look for a link to your Academic
Advisement Report (AAR). This is a crucial resource that will help you keep track of your degree progress.
Check it both before and right after you register for classes to verify what classes you need and how the ones

appointment.
