You need to submit your Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate Office before registration
You will have a "negative service indicator" related to academic advising on your record that will block your registration until after you have submitted your Program Planning Sheet to the Music Graduate office. Submit your Program Planning Sheet online. After you submit the online program planning sheet, you will receive an email once your program planning sheet has been reviewed and your registration plans have been approved.
Program planning sheets are processed by the Music Graduate Office staff in the order in which they are received. Usually you will get a response within 24 hours of when you submit the program planning sheet (not including weekends or holidays), but if there are a lot of program planning sheets submitted on the same day it is possible that the response will be delayed. Therefore, you should submit your Program Planning Sheet at least 48 hours before you wish to register.
Note: The last day to register is the Friday of the first week of classes for the fall and spring semesters, and for summer session II. Registration after the first week of classes requires the permission of the Director of Graduate Studies. Late registration fees begin the week before classes start.

Remember to include the subject/catalog number, credit hours, and class number when you fill out your Program Planning sheet.
The information you need in order to fill out your program planning sheet is the subject/catalog number, the number of credits, and the class number for each class.
In the example below, the subject/catalog number is MUS-M 542 (for a music course, the subject/catalog number will always start with MUS-). The number of credits is in parentheses after the course title (in this case, 3 cr). The class number is a four or five digit number always located under the subject/catalog number. In this case, the class number is 8471.
MUS-M 542 MUS HIST REVIEW GRAD STDNTS 2 (3 CR)
8471 RSTR 08:00A-08:50A MWF MA 454 Smith J
Although all of this information is important, the class number is the most important information for your Program Planning Sheet and for when you register.
Students must enroll in Masterclass (MUS-I 500) if their private study instructor has a section listed. Please refer to the Schedule of Classes Bulletin to determine which instructors have a Masterclass section. Remember to write the masterclass information for your teacher on the program planning sheet.
Students must register in the required recital course number to receive credit for the recital. Many recitals use the same title (e.g., "Doctoral Chamber Music Recital") but are designated with course numbers specific to different departments. Please pay close attention to the course number(s) of the recital(s) for which you register; ask if you have questions. (Correcting inaccurate recital enrollments may incur fees from the Registrar that we are not in a position to have waived.) Please consult the Jacobs School of Music Bulletin or contact the Music Graduate Office for clarification of recital numbers.

Registration on OneStart
After you get an email from the Music Graduate Office stating that your registration plans have been approved, you can register any time after your scheduled Registration Appointment time by following the steps outlined on this web site: Student Central Registration Instructions.
Find your Registration Appointment Time (the Registration Appointment is the first possible time you can register, and is automatically generated by the Registrar's Office)
Log in to OneStart by clicking on the LOGIN button in the upper left hand corner of the home page. You will log in with your IU user ID and passphrase (the same ID and passphrase you use to access your IU email account). If you have problems logging in to OneStart, call the UITS support center at 855-6789.
Click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Next, click on the Go to Student Center link. Then click on Open Enrollment Dates at the right side of this page. Remember to submit your Program Planning Sheet at least 48 hours before you wish to register.
You do not need to register at your Registration Appointment Date and time - it is the first possible time you can register, but you can register after that appointment time.
Remember your University ID number
To find your University ID number, log in to OneStart by clicking on the LOGIN button in the upper left hand corner of the home page. You will log in with your IU user ID and password/passphrase (the same ID and password/passphrase you use to access your IU email account). If you have problems logging in to OneStart, call the UITS support center at 855-6789.
Click on the "Student Self-Service" button on the left side of the page. Then click on the Lookup my University ID number link that will appear towards the bottom of the page (you will probably need to scroll down). Your University ID number will be a 10 digit number beginning with at least three zeros.
If you have any problems
Contact Student Central by either going to 408 N. Union St. (it is open from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday), calling 855-8200, or emailing reghelp [at] indiana [dot] edu. You can register on OneStart any time except 5 am to 6 am Monday through Saturday, and except midnight to 8 am on Sunday.
Suggestions about using OneStart
Know your class numbers! When you register, knowing your class numbers will simplify the registration process.
After you have entered a class number or selected a course from your shopping cart, you will need to click on ENROLL NOW and FINISH ENROLLING to be completely enrolled in the class. Always check the Status box to make sure it says Success each time you click submit. If the add is not successful, you will see a red “X” and an error message. Until the Status box says Success (with a green check mark), you are NOT registered for the class. If you have a question about the error message, be sure to copy or write down the message before calling the Registrar's office (or the Music Graduate Office) so they have the information they need in order to answer your question.
Many programs require registration in a major ensemble. Students enrolling in University Instrumental Ensembles (MUS-X 040) or University Choral Ensembles (MUS-X 070) should register in the drill section that corresponds to the instrument or voice type; please list that drill section on the program planning sheet and use that class number in the registration system.
If you need to change your lesson credit hours after you have already registered in them, DO NOT DROP your lessons. Click on the EDIT option at the top of the page. Select the appropriate course, then adjust the number of credits as necessary. **If you drop a class that you needed permission to register for, you need to contact the Music Graduate office to get a new permission before you can add that class to your schedule again.**

A course audit does not count towards the number of credit hours required for full-time status. It is not possible to audit courses that require any sort of class participation, such as lessons, chamber music or repertoire classes, and it is not possible to audit any graduate review courses to prepare for the graduate entrance exams. An audited class will not fulfill any degree requirements.
