Add/Drop Procedures

  1. Advisor permission is granted at the initial registration review. Be sure to discuss any significant changes to your schedule with your advisor, and check your Degree Audit to ensure that any changes still meet degree requirements. To view your Degree Audit, select WebAdvisor for Students > Registration > Undergraduate Registration > Student Planning > Go to My Progress.

  2. Students must have electronic sixth course permission from their advisor to add a sixth course using Student Planning.

  3. Select the Student Planning option for changing your registration ONLY if there are no special circumstances surrounding your course changes (required override, specialized forms, or special permissions).

  4. Students who are unsure about whether a course meets their degree requirements should seek assistance from the Academic Advising and Support Center (MH 138) prior to the end of the add/drop period. Once add/drop closes, no further course adjustments can be made.

  5. Check your Degree Audit in Student Planning after making any schedule changes to ensure that the change fulfills a degree requirement.

  6. Warning: Drop courses at your own risk. Once a course is dropped, the space opens for other students to add the course. You may not be able to re-add your initial course selection if you change your mind.

  7. For Student Planning assistance, contact the Records Office. For advising assistance, email aasc@loyola.edu or call 410-617-5050.
