​Recommended Courses

Let's make sure you're getting the most out of your current program

Prospective transfers can take courses that will prepare them for their program—before they even arrive at Loyola. These recommended classes help make sure students are moving toward their final degree. The courses below only make up a fraction of a Loyola program, so be sure to look at our Core Curriculum Guide for Transfer Students (PDF) on our Tools and Resource Guide page.

Students are not required to have these coureses complete prior to applying. Not all majors have recommended courses.

If you have additional questions about recommended courses, e-mail us at transfer@LUC.edu.

We are here to help!
