To register for graduate non-degree summer courses: Complete the free online application at loras.edu/apply and select “Graduate Non-Degree or Licensure Student” as the Admit Type. Email unofficial copies of transcripts from each institution attended to Megan Henderson, Director of Admission for Graduate and Postbaccalaureate Programs (megan.henderson@loras.edu). You will then be contacted via email with information about the course registration.

 

To register for undergraduate non-degree summer courses: A student not pursuing a bachelor’s degree from Loras College, but would like to enroll in up to 11 credits per semester is considered a special student. This status includes: 1) those who have not earned a bachelor’s degree who wish to take courses for personal enrichment; 2) those who regularly attend another college or university and wish to earn credit for transfer back to the home institution; 3) those who have received a bachelor’s degree and wish to earn additional undergraduate credit.

 

If a student falls into the "special" criteria, they must print and complete the application and submit the required materials noted within the application to the Office of the Registrar. Please direct any questions to registrar@loras.edu.
