2024 Winter Transfer Course Request

Note: The 2024 Winter Away Request form is currently closed and will open again in October 2024. 

Loyola University Maryland will be closed December 23, 2024-January 1, 2024 for the Christmas holiday.

In order to process all transfer course requests in a timely manner, we ask that no requests be submitted after the December 15th deadline.


  • Transfer courses require the prior written permission of AASC. All courses will be reviewed, regardless of mode of delivery, including core courses. 
  • Only 1 transfer course may be taken in any given winter. Residency requirement applies.
  • The winter course must begin on/after December 11 and end by January 22, 2024.
  • 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.


  • Complete the form below if you intend to transfer a winter course to Loyola.
  • AASC will send the approval/denial notification to your Loyola email address. Requests will be processed in the order they are received.  Incomplete requests will not be processed.
