Transfer Course 

At the discretion of the Quinlan School of Business, a maximum of one transfer course taken prior to matriculating at Loyola University Chicago may be allowed.

Transfer Credit

The Quinlan School of Business will allow program transfer credit for business courses taken elsewhere prior to matriculation at the lower-division level provided such courses are also offered at the lower-division level at Loyola. These lower-division level courses are stipulated by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the business school accreditation agency, as follows:

  • Principles of Accounting (six credit hours)
  • Principles of Economics: Macro and Micro (six credit hours)
  • Principles of Marketing (three credit hours)
  • Business Statistics (if college algebra is required as a prerequisite) (three credit hours)
  • Law and the Regulatory Environment of Business (three credit hours)

Loyola's upper-division requirements in finance, intermediate economics, human resources management, strategic management, and operations management will not be satisfied by courses taken elsewhere at the lower-division level or without junior or senior standing. Students transferring as juniors or seniors may be allowed to transfer credit after successful completion of an upper-division course taken at another institution if the Quinlan School of Business deems that the subject matter is congruent to a corresponding Loyola course.

Current Loyola Students

The Quinlan School of Business adheres to the university policy regarding taking courses elsewhere. In conjunction with the university policy, the Quinlan School of Business will not approve any courses from the Quinlan School curriculum to be taken elsewhere during any semester or summer session.
