Registration Tips

Courses Full?

If a course you want to register in is full, check LORIS regularly to see if new course sections are available. Throughout the summer, Laurier may increase class sizes or add new course sections to accommodate the increase in demand.

View Your Weekly Schedule

You can view your schedule in LORIS by following the pathway below:

  • LORIS > Student Services > Registration > View Registration Information

Online courses will not appear in your schedule.

Course Reference Number 

CRN stands for "course reference number." CRNs can be found in the Visual Schedule Builder or Browse Classes.

Remember that labs and tutorials will have their own CRN. You must add the course CRN and lab/tutorial CRN to successfully register for the course.

If you do not know the CRN of the course you wish to add, you can search for it using the “Find Classes” tab. You can search for classes by course code, course title, subject, etc.
