Information and Policies for Students

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 canceled, all tuition will be refunded (course fees are nonrefundable).


Once admitted into the program, Loyola University Maryland will send all official communications to your email account. Please be sure to check this communication. 

Registration and Payment

After a student has been admitted, the student must submit the online registration form via Loyola's Self Service- student planning portal. 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 withdraw you from the course if you do not pay the tuition; instead, you will receive a financial hold and a grade and will be unable to obtain transcripts or register for future courses until the tuition is paid.

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.

How to Withdraw from a Course?

Prior to the first class session, students can withdraw from their course using the student planning in Loyola Self-Service. Once the course has started, the student should submit the 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 of Registration form. NOTE: Once a course has a started, the student is no longer eligible for a refund. 


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 an incomplete grade 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.
