Registering for Courses
Waterloo Lutheran Seminary students can register for courses using LORIS (the Laurier Online Registration Information System). If this is your first time using LORIS, click here for login information and links to user guides.
All graduate-level courses during the Spring term, and a few specific courses in the Fall/Winter terms are offered in a five-day intensive format. These courses have the same number of contact hours between students and instructors, and may involve extensive reading before or after the course runs.
Letter of Permission
If a student finds a course would benefit their learning that is offered at another institution, (s)he may request to take courses at the other institution through a Letter of Permission request.
Incoming Letter of Permissions students (students who are enrolled at another institution and are seeking a course at WLS) can find more information under Prospective Students.
If a student wishes to focus on a specific area of study that is not offered as a regular course in the Seminary, (s)he may submit a request for a Directed Study at the Waterloo Lutheran Seminary.
Waterloo Lutheran Seminary offers a few practical work placement courses. These include Practicum, Internship, CPE, and courses relating to Contextual Ministry. For more information, please speak to your faculty advisor.
You must register for each term that you are working on your thesis. DMin students will register for TH780A - DMin Research Project during the thesis proposal stage, and TH780B - DMin Thesis during the dissertation writing stage. For more information, please speak with your thesis advisor.
