Academic Advising: Your success is our success


We're here to help as you chart your path to making a difference in the education field. From your first year to graduation and beyond, you can rely on our expert advising staff to support your goals and be committed to your success.

The Office of Student Academic Services in the School of Education (SOE) provides advising services to current and prospective students in the field of education. We recommend scheduling an advising session once per semester.

First and Second Year Undergraduate Advising


Freshmen and sophomore students will be assigned an advisor in the Office of First and Second Year Advising, in addition to the support offered in the School of Education. Academic advisors in the Office of First and Second Year Advising help students with resources both on and off campus, career decision-making, declaring a minor, and a variety of other issues. Their office is located on the second floor of the Sullivan Center on the Lake Shore campus.

Syllabus Addendum


The following apply to all classes.


Academic honesty is an expression of interpersonal justice, responsibility and care, applicable to Loyola University faculty, students, and staff, which demands that the pursuit of knowledge in the university community be carried out with sincerity and integrity.

  • Additional

Students who have disabilities which they believe entitle them to accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act should register with the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSWD) office. To request accommodations, students must schedule an appointment with an SSWD coordinator. Students should contact SSWD at least four weeks before their first semester or term at Loyola.  Returning students should schedule an appointment within the first two weeks of the semester or term. The University policy on accommodations and participation in courses is available at the web site.


SOE's Conceptual Framework - - is exemplified within the context of each particular course. Conceptual Framework standards are referenced in the specific course syllabus if applicable.


All students are assessed on one or more dispositional areas of growth across our programs: Professionalism, Inquiry, and Social Justice. The instructor in your course will identify the dispositions assessed in this course and you can find the rubrics related to these dispositions in LiveText. For those students in non-degree programs, the rubric for dispositions may be available through Sakai, TaskStream or another platform. Disposition data is reviewed by program faculty on a regular basis. This allows faculty to work with students to develop throughout their program and address any issues as they arise.


Should you encounter an unexpected crisis during the semester (e.g., securing food or housing, addressing mental health concerns, managing a financial crisis, and/or dealing with a family emergency, etc.), I strongly encourage you to contact the Office of the Dean of Students by submitting a CARE Referral for yourself or a peer in need of support: www.LUC.edu/csaa. If you are uncomfortable doing so on your own, please know that I can submit a referral on your behalf.


Loyola University Chicago has implemented EthicsLine Reporting Hotline, through a third party internet & telephone hotline provider, to provide you with an automated and anonymous way to report activities that may involve misconduct or violations of Loyola University policy. You may file an anonymous report on-line or by dialing 855-603-6988. (within the United States, Guam, and Puerto Rico)

The University is committed to the highest ethical and professional standards of conduct as an integral part of its mission of expanding knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice and faith. To achieve this goal, the University relies on each community member's ethical behavior, honesty, integrity and good judgment. Each community member should demonstrate respect for the rights of others.

EthicsLine Reporting Hotline


The School of Education faculty, students and staff respect each other’s rights, privacy and access to electronic resources, services, and communications while in the pursuit of academic and professional growth, networking and research. All members of the university community are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of integrity, communication, and responsibility while accessing and utilizing technology, information resources, and computing facilities.
