Course Cancellations

Loyola University Maryland requires minimum enrollments to begin each course. The University reserves the right to cancel courses and change the course schedule. The University will make every effort to notify participants of course cancellations prior to the start of the course. If a course is cancelled, all tuition will be refunded (course fees are nonrefundable).

Registration and Payment

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. All tuition/fees must be paid within ten (10) business days of submitting the online registration form. Payments in installments are not accepted. Federal financial aid is not available to participants. NOTE: Loyola University will not drop you from the course if you do not pay the tuition; instead, you will receive a hold on your account and will be unable to obtain transcripts until the tuition is paid.


Payment for all tuition/fee are required ten (10) business days after the online registration form has been submitted. Partial payment are not accepted. Participants are not eligible for federal financial aid. 

Employer Paid Tuition (in the case of direct billing agreements)

Loyola University Maryland must have a direct billing agreement for Professional Continuing Education Courses with your school system to accept third party billing. For more information about direct billing, contact your school district.


Each course is worth graduate credit. At the end of each course, letter grades are assigned. Once the course has been completed and the grade has been submitted by the faculty member, students will be able to review their grades online through self-service. Students may not receive incompletes for graduate continuing education courses. Please visit to request an official transcript  

Withdrawal Request

Participants will be able to withdraw from the course electronically through Self-Service Student Planning until the day before classes begin. Students who withdraw one day before the start of the course will receive a full refund. NOTE: Students are not automatically withdrawn from the university for inactivity or nonpayment. If you do not intend to attend the course, you must submit a Change of Registration form. The Change of Registration form may be found on Loyola-Self Service, select Academics on the left menu bar, then select GR Change or Registration form. 


Refund Policy

Those who have registered for a course but wish to withdraw prior to the start date will receive a full refund. All requests received after the course has begun will be ineligible for a refund.
