Course Registration Advice from Current Loyola Students

Priyanka Agadi, Class of 2020, 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 is majoring in communications with a minor in marketing and is an Evergreen Leader for the Office of Student Engagement and a Marketing Intern for Loyola Athletics.

Course Withdrawal Spring 2020

The new deadline for undergraduate students to withdraw from Spring 2020 course(s) with a grade of “W” is Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.   Due to the unprecedented circumstances, students do not need to obtain signatures from their professor or faculty advisor for this semester only. In order to withdraw, students must complete the Change of Registration form and email it to the Academic Advising and Support Center at aasc@loyola.edu before 5:00 p.m. on April 28th.

Student athletes should still consult with 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).

Students who wish to speak with an advisor prior to withdrawing may contact AASC at 410-617-5050 or aasc@loyola.edu.

      1. Download override form.
      2. Fill it out completely.  Include a reason.
      3. Save the form to your computer as a regular MSWord document or pdf file.
      4. Give the override form a filename:

All course overrides are reviewed by the department chair and are only approved if there are extenuating circumstances. Course instructors do NOT have the authority to grant overrides. The form will not be processed if there is a time conflict with your existing schedule or if there is a financial hold on your account. You will be notified by Loyola email if approved or denied.
