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.
There are four different program planning sheets - submit the one that matches your program:
You will receive an email once your program planning sheet has been reviewed and your registration plans have been approved, and at that point you will be able to register after your registration appointment time.
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 the JSoM summer session. 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.

Instructions for how to 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-T 508 (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-T 508 WRITTEN THEORY REV-GRAD STDNTS (3 CR)
8471 RSTR 08:00A-09:15A TR 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. Be sure to check for time conflicts, as well.
You will also be asked to choose the requirement category for each class you list. For example, if you are a master's student and you are listing MUS-T 508 (a review course) on your program planning sheet, you will choose "review course" from the dropdown menu for that class's requirement category.
Be careful to make sure you pick classes without a time conflict. And, if you are using iGPS for your course searches, please note that the credit hours listed on the initial search results page may be incorrect. You will need to go into the details of a particular offering of a course to see what credit hours are available for that course.
Students must enroll in Studio Masterclass (MUS-I 500) if their private study instructor has a section listed. They must also enroll in Departmental Masterclass (MUS-I 501) if they are taking major field lessons in a department that has a section of MUS-I 501. Please refer to the Schedule of Classes to determine which instructors and departments have a Studio Masterclass and Departmental Masterclass section. Remember to write the masterclass information on the program planning sheet. Masterclasses are 0 credits.
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 schedule change fees 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.

- 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 Student Central on Union (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 40) should register in the drill section that corresponds to the instrument type; please list that drill section on the program planning sheet and use that class number in the registration system.
If you are using the class search function on One.IU and have a problem finding the class number for ensemble, be sure to choose to look for undergraduate level courses.
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.
