First Week of the Term: January 12, Monday, through January 16, Friday, at 11:59 pm.
During this time, a student may:
- Register for the first time
- Add a course, drop a course without a W, or both through PROWL prior to the deadline of 11:59 pm on Friday, January 16. In reference to a semester course(s), withdraw and drop are used interchangeably prior to the drop deadline.
- Take a Leave of Absence from the University - first-time students should contact the Admission office (please do not use this form).
- Withdraw from the University - first-time students should contact the Admission office (please do not use this form).
Students should be enrolled on a full-time basis if financial considerations (Financial Aid, outside scholarships, VA benefits, Visa Status, etc.) or other matters (athletic participation, campus clubs and services, etc.) require full-time status.
The Wait List in PROWL is disabled on Friday, January 16, and no further registrations are possible. Students may only attend classes in which they are officially enrolled as of January 16, and are not permitted to otherwise "sit in" or "unofficially" attend a class. Instructors do not have the ability to add a student to a class.
Second Week of the Term through Last Day to Withdraw (Withdrawal Period)
- A student may withdraw from a course(s)/all courses from his/her schedule with a resulting grade of W in each course through the deadline to withdraw, March 20, and as printed in the University Bulletin. A student may not withdraw from a course(s) after the deadline.
- Full-time undergraduate students pay flat-rate tuition which does not enable a refund by course. For part-time undergraduate and graduate students, LMU offers a sliding tuition refund schedule in the term (see below).
- If a student stops attending a course after the last day to withdraw in the semester, s/he will receive a grade a grade of F or the assigned grade from the instructor.
General questions concerning registration procedures should be addressed to Registrar@lmu.edu.
