Loyola University Chicago is committed to making the transfer process as simple as possible. There are a number of tools developed to assist you in planning a future transfer to Loyola or to determine once you’ve been admitted how your prior academic history fits into Loyola’s degree plans. For more detailed assistance in the selection of courses to take prior to entering Loyola, contact a Transfer Admission Counselor at 773.508.3075 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 1. Look-up course equivalencies on Mylist
Transfer students may review MyList, Loyola University Chicago's web-based course equivalency look-up program, to determine if courses at their current institution are currently articulated to Loyola. MyList does not imply application and/or admission to Loyola University Chicago.
Step 2. Decide on a major.
Transfer Students may use Academic Degree Requirements to review Loyola requirements by school for majors and minors. These are intended for use by prospective students or undeclared students. Admitted/Currently Enrolled Students with a declared major or minor should refer to My Academic Requirements in LOCUS for their individualized lists of approved courses.
Quinlan School of Business students should also view Loyola’s Business Core Curriculum.
Step 3. Learn about Loyola’s Core Requirements and how they apply to you.
Loyola University Chicago's Core Curriculum includes 16 required courses spread across 10 knowledge areas. The Core is designed to reinforce learning of effective skills, including communication, critical thinking, ethical awareness, information literacy, quantitative and qualitative analysis and research methods, and technological literacy and also to promote students' understanding of the values of Justice, Faith and Spirituality, and Diversity which are central to Loyola's Jesuit education. Core requirements depend on a student’s academic background. Review the Core site to see how you may be affected.
Step 4. Review Loyola’s Transfer Credit Rules and Regulations.

Step 5. Consult with a transfer counselor for planning pre-enrollment.
Official transfer credit evaluations are completed only after students are admitted to Loyola. Shortly after admission, students will receive an official evaluation of college transfer credit via e-mail detailing which classes transfer to Loyola. Any updates or changes to the official evaluation will be visible in the student's LOCUS account.
Admitted students will be able to meet with an Academic Advisor to review their transfer credits, be advised and register for their first semester of classes at Orientation. Prior to that admitted/deposited transfer students can make an appointment with an Transfer Admission counselor to receive a degree forecast to get a better idea of how their transfer credits fit into Loyola’s degree plans and approximately how much time they have to earn their degree.
