Lesley’s Online information Service (LOIS)


LOIS is a secure online service designed to provide students with access to their Lesley University administrative and program information day and night via the web. LOIS provides current students and applicants access to a select set of inquiry functions.

Examples of LOIS services include:

•Register for Classes: Search and register for campus based or online classes during the scheduled WebReg period listed on the academic calendar.

•Class Schedule: Display schedule by semester or term, including dates, times, rooms, etc.

•Personal and Academic Profile: Displays address information, advisor name and contact information, and program of study.

•Chosen Name Entry: Defined as the name that you choose other than your legal name, to better reflect how you wish to identify.

•Grades: View grades and grade point average by semester; request an official grade mailer.

•Transcripts: View an unofficial transcript online or request an official transcript to be sent to the recipient(s) of your choice.

•Check Holds: Find out if you have a financial (student account, library, or parking) hold on your account before registering.

•My Documents: Find out what application materials the Admissions and Financial Aid Offices have received.

•Financial Aid: View financial aid status and award letters.

•Test Summary: Review scores for admissions and placement tests.

•Declaration of Intent to Graduate: File application for graduation; update diploma name and mailing address.

•Commencement RSVP: Notify the Commencement Office of participation in the May ceremony.

•User Account: View username or reset password.

•Current Course Information: Check the availability of courses by semester or term in “real-time” before registering. The feature displays the courses, room locations, faculty, availability, capacity, etc. for course sections matching the criteria chosen. No login required for this feature.

•Program Evaluation (Degree Audit): An automated evaluation tool that generates a report reflecting a student's academic progress toward the completion of a degree. The report replaces the student's course work within a series of requirements and sub-requirements for a specific degree program.

•Parent Portal: Parents or guardians can access their student's info with student permission, at lesley.edu/registrar/parent-portal. If the student chooses to grant access, parent(s) or guardian(s) may view your academic account information. You may select the level of access you wish to provide in the "Parent/Guardian Access" section of the "Students" menu.

Important Note: LOIS Accounts are created on a rolling basis after receipt of an application or course registration. Students will receive notification including username, temporary password and instructions for getting started.
