Fall 2021 Course Override Requests

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

The information on the form will be collected by AASC and presented to the respective department chair for review. Please do not submit your request directly to the department chair.  

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 hold on your account.

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, September 10, 2021.

Course Withdrawal Fall 2021

The deadline for undergraduate students to withdraw from FCall 2021 course(s) with a grade of “W” is Wednesday, November 15, 2021 at 5:00 p.m.   In order to withdraw, students must complete the Change of Registration form with their advisor's and instructor's signature and email it to the Academic Advising and Support Center at aasc@loyola.edu before 5:00 p.m. on November 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. Most aid and scholarships require students to maintain full-time status (12 credits or more).
