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.

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.

Spring 2024 Course Override Requests

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

Please do not use the override request form to request permission to waive pre-requisites or co-requisites. Students should email the respective department chair directly to request permission to waive a pre-requisite or co-requisite. If the department chair approves the request via email, please bring the email permission into AASC (Maryland Hall, Room 138) during or after your initial registration time.

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.

Course instructors do not have authority to grant overrides.

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.
