Course Registration Advice from Current Loyola Students

A graduate of the class of 2020, Priyanka Agadi created the video below to help new students normalize and cope with the emotions they experience during course registration, and to offer advice from current Loyola students who have gone through the process of course registration. Priyanka majored in communications with a minor in marketing and was an Evergreen Leader for the Office of Student Engagement and a Marketing Intern for Loyola Athletics.

Spring 2024 Drop/Add

Undergraduate students will be permitted to drop/add courses for Spring 2024 until January 19, 2024 at 5:00 p.m.

Spring 2024 Course Override Requests

Students looking to register for a closed (full) spring course may submit a course override request form.

Please submit your override form directly to the department chair.  A list of the department chairs is included in the override form. Course instructors do not have authority to grant overrides.

All course overrides are reviewed by the department chair and are only approved if there are extenuating circumstances. The override request will not be processed if there is a time conflict with your existing schedule, you do not have 6th course permission from your advisor, or if there is a financial or registration hold on your account.

For approved overrides, bring your signed override form to AASC in Maryland Hall 138 for final processing.  Add/drop deadline applies: 5:00 pm, Friday, January 19, 2024.

Please continue to check Student Planning for openings in your desired course.  You may add/drop courses yourself until the deadline of 5:00 pm, Friday, January 19, 2024.

Course Withdrawal Spring 2024

The Spring 2024 withdraw period begins on January 20, 2024. The deadline for undergraduate students to withdraw from Spring 2024 course(s) with a grade of “W” is Monday, April 15, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. In order to withdraw, students must complete the Change of Registration form with their advisor's signature OR instructor's signature and bring it to the Academic Advising and Support Center in Maryland Hall, Room 138 before 5:00 p.m. on April 15th.

Student athletes will also need a signature from their athletics advisor, and International Students must consult with Sunanda Bhatia, Director of International Student Services prior to submitting the form. Students are also encouraged to consult with the Office of Financial Aid at 410-617-2576 if they have any questions or concerns about the potential impact of a course withdrawal on their financial aid or scholarship.
