Course Registration & Fees

The Laurier On-Line Registration Information System (LORIS) provides access to your student profile, your academic record, and allows you to register for courses and see the amount for fees owed. Consult the LORIS system regularly to review your information. Go to http://telaris.wlu.ca.

All admitted seminary students can access course registration through their student account on LORIS. If you are not yet admitted to Waterloo Lutheran Seminary, please apply for our academic programs first.

In general terms, the pattern of registration and fee payment follows this pattern each term:

   1. Register for courses.
   2. Check fee due dates.
   3. Fees will be applied to student accounts before fee due dates (not at the time of registration.)
   4. Check fees owed on student account in LORIS.
   5. Make payment before payment deadline.

For detailed instructions on how to do this see the steps below.

Course Registration Instructions


1. Go to http://telaris.wlu.ca

2. LORIS Identification and PIN: Your LORIS User ID is your 9 digit Laurier ID number. Your default PIN number is your date of birth, in the following format - MMDDYYYY. When you enter LORIS for the first time, you will be prompted to create a new PIN number. Your new PIN must be six numerals in length and can not begin with 0 (zero). At this time, you will also be prompted to create a security question. If you experience problems entering LORIS, contact the Registrar's Office at (519) 884-0710 ext. 2764 or 2655.

3. Course Registration:

From the Main Menu, click on "Student Services".
From the Student Services Menu, Click on "Registration".
You will use the Registration Menu to select an academic term for registration, to register for classes, to remove classes from your schedule and to print your class schedule. You must register for classes by academic term.

  • Click on "Select Term".
  • Click on the down arrow to display the list of available terms.
  • Click on desired term of registration.
  • Click on "Submit". 
  • From the Registration Menu, click on "Add or Drop Classes".
  • Click on "Class Search" at the bottom of the "Add or Drop Classes" screen.
  • Use the arrow keys on the Subject field to highlight your course of study (eg, Business, Economics, English, Social Work, etc). Leave the remaining fields on this screen blank.
  • Click on "Class Search" at the bottom of the screen.
  • All courses (undergraduate, if available, and graduate) in your chosen subject area will be displayed. The courses are sorted by course number (column 4), starting with first-year undergraduate courses, if available, and ending with graduate courses.
    The relevant header definitions are as follows:


  Select: click in this box to indicate your desire to register in this course.
  CRN: "Course Registration Number" - do not confuse this number with the Course Number below; the CRN number is only used by LORIS to track your registration.
  Subj: the subject code.
  Crse: the standard Course Number used in the Graduate Calendar; this list is sorted by this column.
  Sec: the section letter.
  Cmp: the campus designation; W = "Waterloo Campus" (including Social Work courses taught at the new St Jerome's Campus); T = "Toronto" (MBA Toronto program).
  Cred: the credit weight.
  Title: the name of the course.
  Days: the day(s) the course is taught.
  Time: the time the course is taught.
  Instructor: the individual who will teach the course, if applicable.
  Date: the start and end date for the course.
  Location: the building and room in which the course will be taught, if applicable.

Click on the Select box next to each course you wish to register in.

Go to the very bottom of the screen and click on "Register".

The courses you selected will now appear on the "Add or Drop Classes" screen under a
section entitled "Current Schedule". Those courses in which you are allowed to register are
listed first, sorted by course number. Those courses for which you have been denied
registration access (if applicable) will be listed next under a section entitled "Registration
Add Errors
". Again, if you are refused permission to register in a course, the course may be
outside your course requirements, it may have a prerequisite which has not yet been
completed, it may be a duplicate course of one in which you are already registered or the
course may require departmental permission (eg, a major research paper or thesis course).
Consult your Graduate Officer or Program Director if you are refused permission to register
in a specific course.

To drop a course previously added to your "Current Schedule", click on the down arrow in
the "Action" column next to the course you wish to drop. Highlight "Drop Course - Web" and
then click on the "Submit Changes" button at the very bottom of the screen.
Continue to add or drop classes from this screen until you are satisfied with your schedule
for the fall semester. When your fall schedule is complete, click on "RETURN TO MENU" at
the top right of the screen. This will take you back to the Registration Menu. Repeat these
steps for the winter 2010 semester and the spring 2010 semesters.

PRINT YOUR SCHEDULE

When you complete your registration and are satisfied with your course selection, it is your
responsibility to print a copy of your schedule. You will not receive a copy of your schedule
from the Registrar's Office. Go to the Main Menu and click on: "Student Services" - Registration"- "Student Detail Schedule" - "Select Term" and "Submit". Your schedule for the selected term will be displayed, including the times and locations of your classes, the dates and the instructor's name. Print this schedule for your records. Courses, room locations and times are subject to change; consult the staff person in your academic department prior to the start of classes in September for any changes.
