Spring 2021 Registration

The Records Office and the Academic Advising and Support Center (AASC) continue to support the Loyola community remotely. Click here for Records Office contact information. AASC can be reached at aasc@loyola.edu or 410-617-5050.

Course Offerings

Students review course offerings beginning September 17, 2021 using either of the following methods:

  • Login to inside.loyola.edu, then select Loyola Self-Service > Course Catalog. On the home screen select Course Catalog. Filter your search. Select section name hyperlinks for more information, including requisites, restrictions, and course descriptions. You must use Student Planning to actually register for those courses.

Once the course schedule becomes available, students can add classes to planned sections prior to the start of registration. Adding classes to planned sections eliminates the need to search for sections at time of registration, but does not save a space in the class. On the day of registration, students must complete the process in order to enroll.

Web Registration Dates

Web registration is open until 4 p.m., as follows:

Class of 2022: October 22, 2021

Class of 2023: October 27, 2021

Class of 2024: November 3, 2021

Class of 2025: November 10-11, 2021

Registration assistance is available in the Academic Advising and Support Center (AASC, located in MH 138), 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Completed and signed specialized study forms and any special permissions may be submitted to AASC by 4 p.m., on the dates specified above. Otherwise, completed and signed specialized study forms must be submitted to the Records Office (MH 141) by the close of the registration period, January 21, 2022. Special permission forms must be submitted to AASC (MH 138) no later than January 21, 2022.

Making Alternative Arrangements for Registration

Students who cannot be present at their assigned registration time must contact AASC no later than the day prior to the assigned registration time to make alternative arrangements. Students are required to present a written statement explaining the reason for the absence and indicating their desired registration option, as listed below:

Option 1: Submit the completed Undergraduate Registration Request Form with alternative course selections and all necessary signatures to the AASC prior to the assigned registration date.

The registration is entered at the designated registration appointment time. It is important to list alternative courses in the event that the courses or sections chosen are closed. The data entry operator makes every effort to process the registration as submitted; however, if all choices and reasonable options are exhausted, the student's registration will not be complete. It is the student's responsibility to contact AASC to verify that the registration is complete and to make any necessary adjustments after the initial registration has been processed.

Option 2: Register on the assigned day any time after the scheduled appointment time. Students may use Loyola Self-Service any time after their assigned start time until 4 p.m., on the dates specified above. After 4 p.m., students should take the paper form to the AASC (MH 138) for advising assistance and to the Records Office for registration processing.

Students who do not have the necessary criteria such as Course Permission Slips or electronic permission, required requisites, incorrect major/minor/specialization, etc., are not registered for course(s) requiring this criteria. All other course requests are processed. Students are expected to complete the necessary paperwork or contact AASC. Priority in course selection is lost.
