Loyola University Chicago


Transfer Orientation

Loyola University Chicago Orientation for transfer students is a mandatory, one-day program that is comprised of sessions to introduce you to what academic and student life is like at Loyola. During Orientation, you will learn about the many programs and services that are available to you as a Loyola student. Orientation Leaders will share their Loyola Experience with you, answer your questions, and do their best to ensure your smooth transition into the Loyola community!

New in 2020, transfer students will meet with an academic advisor (face-to-face or over Zoom) and register for classes before or after they attend orientation. Once students register for orientation, they will be able to register for an academic advising appointment.
