All students wishing to enroll in graduate courses must have an admission status, either (a) unconditional or conditional, (b) licensure program, or (c) special non-degree student status.

Distance Education:  for special non-degree students OR for those admitted to a graduate program

The School of Education Distance Education Program offers beginning and experienced educators fully accredited course work delivered via the Internet. Topics range widely across the elementary and secondary curricula, offering graduate-level credit that will help meet certification and recertification requirements in school districts across the country and around the world, and may potentially become part of a master's program. (See, for example, the master's programs in Instructional Systems Technology and in Literacy, Culture and Language Education.) Students participating in some distance education courses do not need to be Indiana University students. Students who are interested in a particular distance education course should contact the distance education registrar,, Wright Education 2206, 812-856-8548.

Online or Web-based courses are conducted entirely on the Internet. Online chat sessions may be part of some of these courses. Students with e-mail and Internet access may read and respond to course material on their own schedules, as long as work is completed by designated times.

All distance education courses follow the semester timeline, beginning and ending at the same time as traditional classes. Fees for online courses vary depending on the program and course structure. In most situations, students who are already enrolled at Indiana University pay the same fee as they would for an on-campus course. Other students usually pay in-state tuition plus $37 per credit hour. As distance education programs develop, this fee structure is subject to change. Students may register for courses in non-degree-granting programs online at At the current time, distance education students in degree-granting programs must register through the regular system (see Registration Procedure above).

Auditing Courses

Students may register for courses on an audit basis. Audited courses are listed on the student's transcript but carry no credit, and no grade is recorded. Students are not allowed to audit classes without registering as an auditor. The registration fee for auditing classes at Bloomington is currently $25 per credit hour. The registration fee for auditing classes at Indianapolis is the same as the fee for taking the class for credit.

Temporary Intercampus Transfer

Students admitted to a program on one campus of Indiana University may take courses on other IU campuses. To take courses on another campus for one semester or summer session, a student must obtain a temporary intercampus transfer form, available at the Office of Graduate Studies on the campus at which the student was admitted.

Changing Campuses

Students admitted to a master's degree or licensure program who wish to be admitted to the counterpart program on another campus must request by letter that the Office of Graduate Studies/Student Services at the campus of origin send all transcripts, test scores, the goal statement, and letters of recommendation to the destination campus. They must also send a letter to the graduate admission office at the destination campus requesting admission to the program of choice. In addition, they must submit a new application form, since these forms are unique to each campus. This application will be processed as a new application for admission.

Housing Information

At the Bloomington campus most graduate students reside in university residence halls and apartments or in private houses and apartments in and around Bloomington.
