Fall 2021 Registration

Course Offerings

Students may review course offerings beginning February 5, 2021 using the following method:

  • Login to inside.loyola.edu, then select Loyola Self-Service > Course Catalog. Filter your search. Select section name hyperlinks for more information, including requisites, restrictions, and course descriptions. You must use Student Planning to actually register for those courses.

Once the course schedule becomes available, students can add classes to planned sections prior to the start of registration. Adding classes to planned sections eliminates the need to search for sections at time of registration, but does not save a space in the class. On the day of registration, students must complete the process in order to enroll.

Web Registration Dates

Web Registration is open as follows:

  • Class of 2022: March 17, 2021
  • Class of 2023: March 24, 2021
  • Class of 2024: April 14, 2021
  • Class of 2025: June 17-29, 2021

Registration assistance will be available on the dates specified above. Visit the Academic Advising and Support Center (AASC, located in MH 138), 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Completed and signed specialized study forms and any special permissions may be submitted to AASC by 4 p.m., on the dates specified above. Otherwise, specialized study forms must be submitted to the Records Office (MH 141) by the close of the registration period, September 10, 2021. Special permission forms must be submitted to the Academic Advising and Support Center (MH 138) no later than September 10, 2021.

Making Alternative Arrangements for Registration

Students who cannot be present at their assigned registration time must contact AASC no later than the day prior to the assigned registration time to make alternative arrangements. Students are required to present a written statement explaining the reason for the absence and indicating their desired registration option, as listed below:

Option 1: Submit the completed Undergraduate Registration Request Form with alternative course selections and all necessary signatures to AASC prior to the assigned registration date.

The registration is entered at the designated registration appointment time. It is important to list alternative courses in the event that the courses or sections chosen are closed. The data entry operator makes every effort to process the registration as submitted; however, if all choices and reasonable options are exhausted, the student's registration is not complete. It is the student's responsibility to contact AASC to verify that the registration is complete and to make any necessary adjustments after the initial registration has been processed.

Option 2: Register on the assigned day any time after the scheduled appointment time. Students may use Student Planning any time after their assigned start time on the dates specified above.

Students who do not have the necessary criteria such as Course Permission Slips or electronic permission, required requisites, incorrect major/minor/specialization, etc., are not registered for course(s) requiring this criteria. All other course requests are processed. Students are expected to complete the necessary paperwork or contact AASC. Priority in course selection is lost.
