Laurier Online Registration Information System (LORIS)
What is LORIS?
The Laurier Online Registration Information System (LORIS) provides students access to:
- update contact information;
- add and drop courses by term;
- verify student account balance;
- view grades;
- Review student funding;
- generate the T2202A tax document
You can access your student profile and academic record (courses and grades) online using the Laurier Online Registration Information System (LORIS). This system is also used to register for courses, or to add or drop courses from your schedule. Consult the LORIS system regularly to review your student profile, course registration and academic record, and your student account.
From your web browser, go to telaris.wlu.ca. Your LORIS User ID is the same as your 9 digit Laurier ID number. The first time you access LORIS, you will be prompted for a password. The default password is your date of birth, in the following format - MMDDYY . When you enter this password, you will be prompted to create a new password. Your new password must be six numerals in length and should not start with the digit ‘0’.
Complete instructions on how to use LORIS to register for courses is posted on the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website.
The Graduate Academic Calendar contains a comprehensive description of all academic courses. As far as possible, each program attempts to provide a full range of core courses and electives. However, every course listed in the Calendar is not available in every session or every year. You are encouraged to consult the program/department to inquire about course offerings each year.
It is your responsibility to ensure the courses you select meet the academic requirements of your program. Your program’s graduate coordinator is available to discuss your specific academic goals and to advise you on how your course selection will enable you to meet those goals. If you have any questions about course offerings or your academic program, contact your graduate co-ordinator.
All graduate students must register for three academic terms each year (fall, winter and spring). Students who fail to maintain continuous registration are deemed to have terminated their candidacy in their program unless they have been officially granted inactive status by the Graduate Student Appeals Committee.
You can register for courses only after you have accepted a final offer of admission; you can not register for courses if your offer of admission is conditional.
Beginning May 15, 2012, you can register for courses online using LORIS for the upcoming fall, winter, and spring terms. You can select courses or make changes to your course selection anytime after this date. To avoid late registration fees, you are encouraged to register for all your courses for the coming academic year (fall, winter, and spring) well in advance of the start of the term or your program.
Instructions for adding and dropping courses on LORIS are available on the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website. Late registration fees may apply (consult the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies registration information pages for details). LORIS can only be used to add or drop courses from your schedule. For any other change to your academic program (e.g., changing stream from thesis to course work/research paper, or changing academic concentration) you must complete the Graduate Program Change Request form available in your department or in the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office. Note that dropping all courses on LORIS does not constitute cancellation of your registration or withdrawal from the university.To withdraw from the university you must complete the Request to Withdraw form, available from the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website. Unless you officially withdraw, tuition fees will be assessed.
