Students admitted prior to Fall 2012
In Fall 2012 a number of changes to the Core and University Curriculum requirements became effective. These changes impact new first year (freshmen) students, continuing Loyola students, and transfer students in different ways. Below we outline the Core and University requirements for students; as always, for more details please consult with your academic advisor.
Loyola Students Beginning Classes Prior to Fall 2012
Students who entered Loyola prior to the Fall of 2012 will satisfy the required Core and University Curriculum requirements by successfully completing courses in each of the various Core Knowledge Areas and also by completing the Engaged Learning* requirement. Any class you have already successfully completed that satisfied a Knowledge Area will count toward that Knowledge Area; no continuing student will lose credit for any Core class as a result of this transition to the new Core.
Similarly, if you have already completed the civic engagement requirement, you will receive credit for the Engaged Learning requirement. If you have not yet completed the civic engagement requirement, you will still need to take a course approved for Engaged Learning; these courses are listed each semester on LOCUS.
If you have completed a course in ethics, you have already satisfied the Ethics University requirement. If you have not yet done so, you will need to take one course from the list of approved ethics classes.
*All courses that satisfy the Core Engaged Learning requirement are listed on LOCUS.
