Registering for Classes

Loyola Chicago Students

Login to LOCUS and register for Vietnam Center classes as you normally would for your classes in Chicago.  Your registration time will be indicated in your acceptance materials and you will receive a normal appointment for registering. Just make sure you change campus to "Viet Nam" to see the courses offered. 

If you have logged into LOCUS and are attempting to register at your appointed time but you encounter difficulties, you will need to call the HelpDesk at (773) 508-4487.  To find your registration time, simply log onto LOCUS and view your Student Center; in the box labeled "Enrollment Dates," you should see a memo telling you the date you are eligible to enroll.  If you click onto "details," you will find the time at which you are eligible to begin registering. 

Do not attempt to register before your scheduled time and day; you will not be able to do so.    

Visiting Students

Make sure you have gotten your courses approved by your home institution prior to registration.
