Choosing and Scheduling Classes
Once you have been admitted to LSU and have a MyLSU account, you will be able to register for courses on the date your host coordinator gives you. Course registration usually begins at the end of March (for fall enrollment) and end of October (for spring enrollment).
If you don't have a LSU account, you can view the list of courses offered at LSU in theSchedule booklet by entering the appropriate semester and department You can view a list of course descriptions in theLSU Course Catalog under the Course Descriptions section.
The registrar's Scheduling and Registration Instructions booklet provides important dates, how to complete registration, fee payments, wait listing, parking, dining, and more.
Once you have set up your MyLSU account, you will be able to register for courses on the date the International Exchange Coordinator gives you. To schedule classes on MyLSU:
- Click Registration Services in the left panel.
- Click Schedule Request.
- Select the semester you are scheduling for, and then add in the course number and section. Further information about scheduling classes.
You can add or drop courses until about the first week of classes. However, you should register for courses as soon as possible because courses fill up quickly.
For courses that have pre-requisites, the online registration system does not recognize whether you meet the pre-requisite since LSU does not have records of your grades and courses taken at your home university. Therefore, the system will not allow you to register in courses with pre-requisites. In this case, email your host coordinator, the course number, name and section that you would like to take and she will assist you.
If you are an Engineering or Art and Design student, you will need to participate in an advising session with the department prior to registering for courses. In this case, please email your host coordinator the course number, name and section that you would like to take and she will assist you with course registration.
