Advising Charts

The advising charts below serve as a resource for the variety of questions you may receive during a typical advising session, particularly during registration periods. If you have any questions about the information presented in these charts, please contact AASC at 410-617-5050.

Advanced Placement (AP)

Students must request that College Board sends their official AP score report to Loyola University Maryland. Upon receipt of the report, AASC contacts students via Loyola email to inform them about any awarded AP credit.

Foreign Language Placement Exam

Prior to new student summer orientation, incoming students are instructed to take an online placement exam in a foreign language. Students must complete the 104 level of a classical or modern language in order to fulfill the Core requirement.

Students who start at Loyola in Summer 2021 or later (Class of 2025 and beyond) that place higher than the 104 level on Loyola’s foreign language placement exam may be exempt from the foreign language core requirement, pending confirmation from Loyola’s Modern Language department after a proctored, on-site placement exam. Those students will need to complete 1 additional free elective in lieu of the foreign language core.

Math Placement Exam

In addition to taking an online placement exam in a foreign language, new students also take an online math placement exam. In many cases, the specific math course that a student must take to fulfill the Core requirement is dependent on a student’s major.

  1. ALEKS Math Placement Exam (Class of 2025 and 2024)
  2. WebWorks Math Placement Exam (Class of 2023, 2022 and 2021)
