Let iGPS guide you to graduation

IU’s graduation planning tools create the roadmap to your degree.

As much as you love IU, you probably want to graduate on time. How can you make sure you’re on the right track to make that happen?

With the Integrated Graduation Planning System (iGPS), you can use degree maps to see requirements and course options to map out your four-year plan. Use the Plan tool to create and save your future course schedules, but don’t worry—nothing is set in stone. If you change your major or have time conflicts, just revise your plan.

You can also view your completed and enrolled classes, making it easy to see where you are on your path to that cap and gown. Use iGPS to take the guesswork out of scheduling, because success doesn’t just happen—it’s planned for.

IU Print makes it easy to get your documents

Print, copy, and scan securely on every IU campus.

Gone are the days when students had to trek to a designated computer lab to print out papers before class. Now all it takes is the swipe of a card, and you can print from any device that supports IU Print.

The IU Print platform is available to students, faculty, and staff on all IU campuses, supporting everything from scanning and copying to 3D printing. The student technology fee covers an initial allotment of print credits per semester; students and faculty can purchase extra credits or roll over unused credits to the next semester.

Automatically upload Zoom recordings to Kaltura

New time-saving process to begin September 14.

A new integration between Zoom and Kaltura now makes it possible to automatically upload your Zoom cloud recordings to Kaltura as soon as a meeting ends. This replaces the process of saving the recording to your computer, then manually uploading to Kaltura.

For faculty members, this integration will make it easier and more efficient to share recordings in Canvas. Kaltura also offers added accessibility like automatic closed-captioning for hearing-impaired or multilingual audiences.
