Complete the University Health Form & Health Insurance by July 25th

It is recommended that you make an appointment with your health care provider when you receive the health form so that you can have it completed and receive any necessary vaccinations by July 25, 2014. Be sure to complete both sides and do not send attachments. Also, be sure to complete the health insurance form if you are seeking medical insurance while enrolled at Loyola. The Student Health website has links to further information on these forms. 

Consider Signing Up for a Pre-Fall Program by July 11th

Loyola’s Pre-Fall Programs offer you the opportunity to jump right in to one of six experiences that take place just prior to the beginning of Fall Orientation, giving you a chance to arrive to campus a few days early and ease into your first year at Loyola. Learn more about the Pre-Fall Programs offered.

Sign Up for a First-Year Program (Messina or Loyola 101) by May 30th 

Visit www.loyola.edu/fyp to request Messina, Loyola's first-year seminar/living learning program or Loyola 101, a one-semester, 1-credit extended orientation course.   Students should preference their choice of program and at least five Messina course pairings (one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester) they are interested in taking during first year at Loyola.

Complete Math and Language Placement Tests by May 30th 

Completion of mandatory math and language tests is a necessary step in your academic preparations for summer orientation, as this will ensure that we can advise you properly in your course selection.

Extra Health Forms (Student-Athletes Only)

If you are planning to play intercollegiate athletics, or even think you may, you must also complete some additional health forms and information. You can do so by downloading the Freshman and Transfer Student-Athlete Health Information Packet on the athletics website.

All students with documented disabilities should register with Disability Support Services. This office arranges services and accommodations for students with disabilities in order to provide academic, physical, and electronic access to all University programs.
