This page contains detailed instructions on how to sign up for IT Training's courses on IU Expand. The process involves two parts: signing up for an IU Guest account (if you don't already have one) and registering for a course on IU Expand.
Guest accounts at IU
For those with no formal relationship with Indiana University, Guest accounts provide limited access to certain needed online applications and services, for a specific purpose. The amount of access is determined by the particular application. Guest accounts may be removed if the account has not been used in more than a year, or upon request.
- This type of Guest account is entirely separate from any other type of IU account and is unrelated to the IU Guest wireless internet service for IU campus visitors.
- Guest accounts will not allow authentication to ITHelpLive, but those with Guest accounts may use all other support options described in Contact your campus IT Support Center.

- Enter your name in the appropriate fields; enter and verify your IU Guest account password. Click .
