Summer Sessions Registration for New Loyola Students

Welcome incoming freshman and transfer students

Now that you're an admitted Loyola student, Registration for summer courses is easy through our scheduling system, LOCUS. However, your first step is to contact the Undergraduate Admission Office to discuss the process for registering for the Summer Sessions.


Once you've contacted the Undergraduate Admission Office, follow the following steps for registration:

1. Login to LOCUS: Use your Loyola ID and password to register. If you do not have an ID or password, please contact the ITS Service Desk at 773.508.4ITS or 773.508.4487 for assistance.

2. To Register:

  • Under the student self-service heading, select "Enroll in a Class"
  • Select Summer 2024 as the enrollment term, or TERM 1244
  • Select "Add a Class"
  • You may enter course numbers directly into the enrollment page
  • Press the "Submit" button to attempt enrollment in your selections. If you receive a "Success" or "Success/Message" response, you are enrolled. An "Error" message indicates a problem with your request.
  • You must click the "Submit" button in order to enroll. If you do not, you will not be enrolled in your selections.

3. LOCUS Help provides detailed instructions and guidelines to using LOCUS shop, drop, and swap courses.

4. If your registration is blocked by a hold, you will receive a block message when you try to add or drop a course. You may use the "Holds" function in your LOCUS Personal Portfolio to determine if you have a hold and whom to contact to have the hold removed.

5. If you have any questions about using LOCUS, please call the ITS Service Desk at at 773.508.4ITS or 773.508.4487 or e-mail:locus@luc.edu

It is a serious violation of university policy for a student to attend any class without first registering for it. Instructors may not make exceptions to this policy.

2. Please update your address, telephone, and other information, if necessary. Students are responsible for ensuring that Loyola has accurate student addresses on file. This can be done through LOCUS.
