Registration Priority

Undergraduate (day) students in the Colleges of Humanities & Natural Science, Social Science, Music & Fine Arts and the College of Business are given priority to register based on their future classification. For example, if you are currently a junior and the hours for which you are currently registered will make you a senior next semester, your classification for early registration will be senior. Therefore, you register on the dates that are scheduled for seniors. 

During registration, you will not be allowed to register if you have a health hold. You should contact the Student Health office for further information.  Students with a financial block will NOT be allowed to register until they have substantially satisfied their financial obligations to the university. Promissory notes are no longer an option.  If you have any questions, you should check with the Office of Student Finance - (504) 865-3337.

Advising - Undergraduates/Graduates (if required by your program)

Advising begins on Monday, October 28th. Schedule an appointment with your advisor as soon as possible. Your advisor may activate your registration access code so you will be able to access Loyola Online Records Access (LORA) or your advisor may register you on-line on your appropriate day. If you cannot locate your advisor, contact your department chairperson (HN & SS) or your associate dean (other colleges). Law and Evening students, and non-degree seeking students are not required to meet with an advisor and your access will be automatically activated and you may register through LORA at your appropriate time.

You may register from any personal computer with web access. Follow the LORA directions to register for your courses. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Student Records at (504) 865-3237 during normal business hours - Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. or email sturec@loyno.edu.

If desired, students with disabilities who notify the Office of Student Records will be assisted in their registration by a staff member.

The course availability is found on Loyola Online Records Access (LORA):

  1. Click on LORA
  2. Click Login to Student Services
  3. Enter your Student ID (social security number or campus wide id -CWID)
  4. Enter your PIN (If this is your first time logging on to LORA, your PIN has been preset to the first two letters of your first name and last four digits of the your SSN.)    (If you have entered LORA previously, please use the PIN that you have reassigned to yourself.)

    NOTE: First time users are required to change their PIN numbers. For security reasons, you must change your pin to a 6-digit number that is only known by you. You must make this change on your initial sign-in.

To determine your eligibility and classification, please read the following instructions:

  1. Click on Registration and Scheduling
  2. Click on Registration Status – This section will give you information on registration holds and your classification for registration purposes (your registration priority is based on your future classification. For example, if you are currently a junior with 80 earned hours and you are registered for 15 hours this semester, next semester you will be a senior and eligible to early register as a senior).

Forgot your PIN Number?

If you have forgotten your pin, you may submit your request to reset your pin from the LORA web site. Once you enter the wrong pin, a link will appear that will give you the option to reset your pin to the original setting - the default PIN is the first 2 letters of your first name and the last 4 numbers of your social security number.

After priority registration, registration will be open for all eligible students through the last day to register for the Summer session or Fall semester.

Closed Courses & Courses Requiring Permission

If a course is closed you may be allowed to register with a New Seat Card. Obtain a New Seat Card from the Office of Student Records or from your Dean’s Office. The appropriate signatures must be obtained. Bring the form and the student copy of your signed Course Request Form with you to the Office of Student Records  or your Dean’s Office (Law students only) on or before the last day of late registration.  NOTE:  New seat cards will not be accepted until the first day of class.

To register for courses for which the instructor’s permission is needed, you must obtain an Instructor Authorization Card from the Office of Student Records or from your Dean’s Office. The appropriate signatures must be obtained and bring the card and the student copy of your signed Course Request Form with you to the Office of Student Records (HN, MA, SS students only) or your Dean’s Office (BU & Law students only) on or before the last day of late registration.

Wait Listing A Course

Most course sections in the schedule have been created with a wait list option. If you request such a section and the section is closed, you have the option of being placed on a wait list. You are placed on the wait list in the order of your request.  If a seat becomes available and you are next on the list, you will be added to the course. Note: If a course becomes available and you have added another course at the same time, your wait listed course will take precedent over the course it is conflicting with and that course will be dropped.  Also, you cannot wait list for one section of a course and be registered in a different section nor can you wait list for multiple sections of the same course.
