Re-Registration

for continuing students

Most continuing taught students will be able to re-register for their second or third years using the 'Registration for continuing students' facility in LSE for You

LSE Library

Re-registration is the process where you confirm that you wish to continue with your studies, that you will continue to abide by LSE's regulations and that you will pay your fees. You'll also be asked to make sure that the addresses we hold on the system are correct. 

The re-registration facility in LSE for You opens in September and most students are able to complete the process online.

Can I re-register online?

Most continuing taught students will be able to re-register for their second or third years using the 'Registration for continuing students' facility in LSE for You

However, some students need to re-register in person - for more details expand the section below.

If you have an outstanding debt to the school you may not be able to re-register online, or in person. You should contact the Fees, Income and Credit Control Office to make arrangements to clear the debt before attempting to re-register.

When should I re-register?

Re-registration takes place in September. 

The facility becomes available for different students at different times and dates. You will be e-mailed once you are able to re-register. Please do not try to re-register before you receive this email as the process will fail and/or present you with incorrect alerts. 

Once you receive the email you should try to re-register as soon as possible, and before 18 October 2019, after which the online re-registration facility will be switched off. 

If you fail to re-register then this will mean that you are not able to view your personal timetable, your student loan payments will not be made and if you have a visa this may be cancelled.

What if I can't re-register online?

Who can't re-regsiter online?

To meet UK Home Office requirements some groups of students will not be able to re-register online:

Double Degree Students 
Double degree students who are coming to LSE for the second year of their degree having studied at another institution during the 2018/19 academic year will not be able to use the online re-registration facility. This applies even if you have already been issued with your LSE Card. 

Students returning from interruption

If you were on interruption for any part of the 2018/19 academic year you will not be able to use the online facility. This is because the UK Home Office insist that we recheck your eligibility to study in person. 

Students returning following resits
If you were un-registered and taking re-sits in the 2018/19 academic year (because you failed to progress for example) you will not be able to use the online facility. This is because the UK Home Office insist that we recheck your eligibility to study in person. 

Students with visas which are shorter than the length of your programme
If your visa is not long enough to cover the entire length of your programme then you will not be able to re-register online. We will make sure that you are aware of the steps you need to take to get a correct visa in place before we re-register you. 
Students on Executive Masters programmes will be able to re-register online even if their visa is not long enough to cover the full length of the programme because there are separate visa verification checks in place. 

Students who are spending a year abroad
If you are due to spend 2019/20 abroad, at Sciences Po or another partner institution for example, then you will not be able to re-register online. You should instead register with the institution where you are spending your year abroad. They will then contact us and we will automatically update your status at LSE.

When can I re-register in person?

If you cannot re-register online you will need to register in person instead. If you need to re-register in person you must bring your LSE Card, passport and, if applicable, your visa with you when you re-register.

You should register at the slot for your programme as listed on the new student registration pages.

If you cannot attend your allocated session you should register as soon as possible after you arrive in London. You can either:

  • Register at one of the later sessions in Clement House during Welcome
  • Attend a late registration session in the SSC after Welcome.

We expect you to register on time. In exceptional circumstances it may, however, be possible for you to register late. 

Late registration will take place in the Old Building, Student Service Centre at the following times:

Monday 30 September to Friday 4 October sessions will take place at 10am to 12pm and 3pm to 5pm (MT week 1).

Monday 7 October to Friday 11 October sessions will take place 11am to 12pm and 3pm to 4 pm (MT week 2).

Monday 14 October to Friday 18 October and Monday 21 October to Friday 25 October please attend the Student Services Counter between 11am and 12pm and a member of the Registration Team will complete your registration.

You should have submitted all required Admissions Documentation to the relevant Admissions Team before registering.

All students should register before 25 October. It is not possible to register after 25 October.

Please also make sure that you have collated all of the necessary documents required for registration.

LSE Cards

You will not get a new LSE Card when you re-register. If you current LSE card remains valid it will be automatically updated when you re-register.

If your card is due to expire on 22 October 2019 you should request one online just before your current LSE card is due to expire.
