Transfer Orientation

This content is geared toward students starting in the fall. Please visit the  page if you are starting in the spring. 

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, meet with an academic advisor, and register for your fall semester courses. 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! Have an Orientation question?
