Welcome, transfer students! The Academic Advising and Support Center (AASC) will work with you to acquaint you with Loyola's core and major curriculums and support you in having a positive and successful academic experience at Loyola. Students who are interested in transferring to Loyola should first contact the Undergraduate Admission Office for more information about the transfer and application processes.  To view Loyola's transfer course policies, please click here.

Information for Deposited Transfer Students

Before Registering for Courses:

  1. If you did not receive Loyola credit for math or foreign language, you must take the placement exams.  The foreign language test should be taken in the language studied in high school.  If you do not have any foreign language experience or would like to start with a new language, you do not need to take the language test.  Please follow the placement test instructions for first-year students.     
  2. Complete the New Student Registration form and the Declaration of Major form. Both of these forms must be complete and submitted either by email to aasc@loyola.edu or via fax to 410-617-2161 before registering for courses.
  3. Familiarize yourself with the academic worksheet sent to you by Admission, and search WebAdvisor for open courses you would like to take in the spring.  It is typical for students to take five courses each semester.  Not taking five courses could delay your path to timely graduation.  Pre-requisite and course information can be found by clicking on any of the courses listed on WebAdvisor.  During your advising appointment, an AASC administrator will help you with choosing your courses, but it is helpful if you are familiar with what is open and offered. 
  4. After you complete the steps above, please contact Ms. Shannon Woods, Associate Director, via email at scwoods@loyola.edu or Ms. Victoria Gue, Advising Specialist, via email at vlgue@loyola.edu to schedule your advising appointment. This appointment can be in person, over the phone or via Skype.

Prior to the Start of the Spring 2015 Semester: 

Send a final transcript for any Fall 2014 courses that you completed by January 30th, 2015 .  Please send the transcript to:  AASC, MH138, Loyola University Maryland, 4501 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210.  Not submitting a final transcript will delay the transfer of your courses and could prevent registering for future courses if your transfer courses are pre-requisites for future coursework.
