23 Key Registration Issues Typical Blocks Password Block Wrong Date for Registration Financial Block Immunization Block Firewall Block No Transcript on File System Down

24 Typical Blocks Password Block Pre-emptive Procedure: Verify your password for LOCUS works before your registration date If you havent changed your password since the last registration period your password will have expired See User Memo#8 in computer lab or call 4-4444

25 Typical Blocks Financial Block SBO [Bursar] Blocks: Pre-emptive Procedure: Make sure your tuition and other fees are paid Any unpaid balance of $150 or more will BLOCK your registration [verify both tuition and other fees are paid] Go to Loyola homepage, click on LOCUS

26 Typical Blocks System Down Keep trying! Contact the Registration help line: (312) 915-7167 –Law Registrar Office (312) 915-7221 –University Registrar Office Hopefully this will not happen while you are registering, but if it does, keep trying until the system allows you access to register No concessions can be made for anyone disadvantaged by a system failure, sorry.

27 Pre-Approved Courses Some courses require prior approval Externships Instructor Approval Courses Procedure for registration Complete the Instructor Approval Registration Form from the Registration website and submit the signed approval to the Registrar The Registrar will register you for the course

28 Closed Courses Once a course is closed the only way of getting in is to keep trying! There is almost always a fluctuation in the course enrollments during the registration period, the persistent student has the best chance of getting in when an opening occurs [especially happens on the first day of the class.]

29 Thanks!!!! Good Luck with Registration Communicate any Problems Register Early
