Students normally take five three- or four-credit courses each semester plus any related laboratories. Undergraduate courses are scheduled from 8:00 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. so your courses may be spread throughout the day.

Student Planning is the electronic tool used at Loyola to provide students with real-time information. It is accessed through the Inside.Loyola portal and is used for course registration and drop/add.  Please review the Student Planning instructions for assistance with navigating Student Planning.
