I'm a new student to LMU. When may I register?
Entering first year students (freshmen) will register in Orientation groups over the summer. At that time each student will meet with an advisor and access PROWL for the first time. PROWL is the online student access to registration and records. Entering transfer students will receive directions on how to register from Undergraduate Admission.
I'm a continuing student and when may I register?
In PROWL select Student Services > Registration > Check Your Registration Status to view the student's registration day and time.
What if I have a class during my registration appointment?
The registration day and time is the earliest time a student can register. The student may register anytime after the appointment time.
How do I contact my academic advisor?
Find the academic advisor's name in PROWL: Student Services > Registration > Check Your Registration Status. The name will link automatically to the advisor's email account.
What if I try to register for a class and there is an error message?
The student may see an error message in PROWL after submitting a CRN. Registration in the class will be prevented if there is a registration hold and/or a PROWL registration message.
What do I do if a class I need is closed?
You may wish to waitlist the class and/or search for other open sections of the course. If there are no open sections and you must have a certain class in the semester, you may contact the course department for an override into the class. Other contact options may be the associate dean's office, program director, or instructor.
May I waitlist a course?
Most LMU courses have a waitlist. You may choose to join a waitlist directly via PROWL.
When can I register for more than 17 hours?
Undergraduates are restricted to 17 hours until two weeks before the start of the Fall semesters and one week before the start of the Spring semesters. At those dates, undergraduates may add 18 or more units.
How do I register for a class with a lab?
When registering for a class with a required lab, both CRNs must be submitted at the same time. PROWL is very logical and will look for the class CRN first and then the lab CRN. If you do not enter them in course-then-lab order, the registration will fail.
May I repeat a course for a better grade?
Generally yes. See Repeat Courses at LMU in the bulletin.
Where are my classes located?
The student schedule can be viewed in PROWL: Student Services > Registration > Student Schedule by Day & Time or Student Detail Schedule. The campus map has a list of campus building abbreviations.
