General Information

You can schedule courses electronically using the myLSU Portal.  This option is available under Registration Services | Schedule Request.

For information about LSU Admissions or scheduling courses for future semesters, see the LSU Admissions Web Site.

NOTE: If you need to audit a course, you must obtain written consent from the instructor of the course and the dean of the college offering the course. You may schedule a course; then submit the required approvals to your college office to have your enrollment changed from credit to audit.

NOTE: If the course is not available for the semester or is full, a red heading will appear at the top of the screen stating the course is no longer available.  If you desire to drop a course, click the Drop button. To learn more about your tuition and refunds prior to dropping courses, see the LSU Bursar Refunds site.
NOTE: A Wait List means that if a person drops or is purged from a full course, the first person on the wait list will then become enrolled. If additional people leave the course, then the next few people on the wait list will be enrolled. There is no guarantee that you will get the class if you are on a wait list for this reason.
