Registration and Drop/Add During the Term

First Week of a Term

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 the last day of registration week. (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 Undergraduate or Graduate Admission offices (please do not use the form).
    • Withdraw from the University - first-time students should contact the Admission office (please do not use the form).

Full-time Consideration: 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: this is disabled at 11:59 pm on the last day of the first week, and no further registrations from the Wait List are possible.

Officially Enrolled Classes: Students may only attend classes in which they are officially enrolled as of the last day of registration week, and are not permitted to otherwise "sit in" or "unofficially" attend a class. Instructors are not able to add a student to a class - whether prior to or after the last day of registration week.

Second Week of a Term through Last Day to Withdraw

    • 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 (below) and as printed in the calendars. A student may not withdraw from a course(s) after the deadline.
    • If a student stops attending a course after the last day to withdraw in the semester, s/he will receive a grade of F or the assigned grade from the instructor.

Full-time or Part-time Status: 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 tied to dates in the term.
