If you are using a mobile device to access the myLSU portal, you may need to rotate your phone to landscape mode to access the menu.


General Information

Students are now able to join a waitlist when scheduling their courses for the next semester. By joining a waitlist, students no longer have to check for openings in courses they are trying to add to their schedule. By simply requesting to join the class VIA waitlist, students will be added to a queue of students requesting to be added to the course. As additional spots become available within the course, students will be added in the order they joined the waitlist. Once a student has been added to a course, they will then be notified by e-mail. Students can waitlist up to three courses per semester. Being added to a waitlist is now the most efficient way to schedule classes at LSU. For more information about wait lists, visit the Office of the University Registrar.
