Information for Deposited Transfer Students

Before Registering for Courses

  • 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. 
  • Familiarize yourself with the academic worksheet sent to you by Admission, and search WebAdvisor for open courses you would like to take in the fall.  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. 
  • After you complete the steps above, please contact Ms. Victoria Gue, Senior Associate Director, via email at vlgue@loyola.edu to schedule your advising appointment. This appointment can be in person or over the phone.

“Transferring to Loyola was the best decision I could have possibly made.”

Before arriving at Loyola, I was nervous that I would have a difficult time making friends because of my late arrival, but my experience could not be more different. Between my peers and professors, the administration and other members of the community, I have always felt genuinely welcome here, like I belong. I also really like the size of the community and small classes. I get individual attention in and out of the classroom. I have never felt so supported or accepted as I do here. Inside every crack and crevasse at Loyola is an opportunity supported by members of the community. There is something for everyone on this campus, and it really brings the community together when we all are a part of something we enjoy. Roughly 80% of students graduate with some sort of professional experience, so there are a ton of opportunities here for students to succeed during and post college. Additionally, Loyola has a stellar business program. With our university core, I am developing an academic foundation in all subjects in the humanities; with our business core, I am developing a strong foundation in all aspects of the business world; and with major-level electives, I am developing a focused foundation in my specific fields of studies.
