Requirements

  • The AASC and department chairs will determine course comparability based on submitted course descriptions. All courses will be reviewed, regardless of mode of delivery.
  • Remedial, personal development, physical education, health, and preparatory courses that are not equivalent to or discipline-compatible with Loyola’s courses are unacceptable for transfer.
  • Only courses equivalent to three or four credits in which a grade of C or higher has been earned can be accepted for transfer credit. A course with a grade of C- or below will not be accepted in transfer, regardless of the point value assigned by the transferring institution.
  • Grades for transferred courses will not be factored into the Loyola grade point average. Credits will be transferred only for those courses that are similar to the requirements for degree programs at Loyola University Maryland. The Loyola cumulative QPA is used for determining honors at graduation or any other academic honors. Although the grades for all courses taken at all colleges attended are included, no higher honors are awarded than those earned with grades that appear on the Loyola transcript for courses completed at Loyola or through Loyola sponsored programs.
  • Courses that are 10 years or older cannot be transferred to fulfill major requirements for graduation.
