2024 Summer Transfer Course Request


We will not be processing Summer Transfer Course Requests during official university closures. Loyola University Maryland will be closed the following dates for university holidays: June 19, July 4-5. Loyola also closes at 12:00 PM (Noon) on Fridays, June 7-August 9.

We will also be monitoring Summer Transfer Course Requests less frequently during freshmen orientation, June 24-28, 2024

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at  Otherwise, we will respond to your Summer Transfer Course Request as soon as possible.


  • Transfer courses require the prior written permission of AASC. All courses will be reviewed, regardless of mode of delivery, including core courses.
  • Only 2 transfer courses may be taken in any given summer. Residency requirement applies.
  • The summer transfer courses cannot overlap with the Loyola academic term during which the student is enrolled.
  • A grade of C or better is required of all transfer courses. Courses that receive grades of C- or lower will not transfer.  For science courses that have separate course numbers for lecture and lab (example: CHEM 101, 3 credits; CHEM 101L, 1 credit), grades of C or higher must be earned in both lecture and lab. If either the lecture or lab receives a grade of C- or lower, both lecture and lab will not transfer. For science course that have only one course number for lecture and lab (example: CHEM 101, 4 credits), a grade of C or higher must be earned. If the course receives a grade of C- or lower, it will not transfer and Loyola will not award partial credit for just the lecture or lab.
  • Transfer courses must be a minimum of 3 credits (semester hours), unless the course is a lab associated with a course.
  • The diversity requirement must be completed at Loyola.
  • Upper level major courses for the Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Science in Finance degrees may be taken at AACSB-accredited institutions.  If a student chooses to take an upper level major course at a non-AACSB-accredited institution, written permission of both the chair of the host department and the Academic Advising and Support Center are required prior to registration for the course.
  • An official transcript from the transfer school must be requested by you immediately upon completion of the course in order to award transfer credit. Transcripts must be sent directly from the transfer school to AASC. Do not forward a transcript you personally receive to AASC. Official transcripts should be sent to Maria Schwartz (the Recipient) at or to Loyola University Maryland-Undergraduate Admission. Official paper transcripts should be sent to Maria Schwartz, Academic Advising and Support Center, Maryland Hall 138, Loyola University Maryland, 4501 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210. Electronic transcripts are highly recommended and preferred.

  • AASC will send the approval/denial notification to your Loyola email address.
  • AASC cannot guarantee response time to Summer Away requests. Therefore, please be aware of the transfer school’s add/drop deadline and refund schedule. 
  • Requests will be processed in the order they are received. Incomplete requests will not be processed.
