Loyola Law School's Office of the Registrar oversees course registration, administers examinations, and and other academic services. The Office also maintains the accuracy, security, and dissemination of academic records in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

  • First-Year Electives: Starting at 7:00 am on Monday, October 26 until 11:00 pm on Friday, October 30, first year day students will be able to submit, in the order of preference, their list of first-year elective courses. For more information regarding the first year elective process, please click the following link: 2021 First Year Electives Information.

    • Watch the First-Year Electives Panel about the various courses.
    • Submit your preferences herePlease note that you will be required to rank all seven electives to submit your preferences. You will be allowed to change your preferences any time during this period.
    • Priority for course enrollment will not be based on the time of submission. Every effort will be made to assign students to one of their top three choices (enrollment for each elective course is capped at 50 students). 
    • Your choice of elective is subject to your academic performance in the Fall semester. Students whose GPA at the conclusion of the Fall semester is 2.85 or below (based on the combination of final and midterm grades) will be required to take the Law and Process course in the Spring of their first year. After grades have been submitted and GPAs have been calculated, students will be enrolled in their Spring elective by the Office of the Registrar. A notification will be sent by this office once first-year electives enrollment has been completed. You may check your elective course enrollment by logging in to your PROWL account.

    Review your DegreeWorks Degree Audit: Access DegreeWorks from the Student Menu in PROWL. DegreeWorks allows you to visually see how the classes you are taking or planning to take fulfill the various requirements needed for your degree. Audits are also updated in real time, so review it again after registration to ensure you registered for the right courses.
