Admission


 


Application Procedures

Prospective applicants may apply for admission online via the Loyola website (www.loyola.edu/graduate). For specific application requirements, prospective students applying to Loyola's graduate programs should refer to the information provided in this chapter. All required admission material should be sent to the address provided on the website.

Applicants are responsible for ensuring that their completed application, along with all necessary supplemental materials, is received by the applicable deadline. Applications and supplemental materials received after the stated deadline may not be reviewed.

Applicants must affirm that the information they have provided on their application form and all other admission application materials is complete, accurate, and true to the best of their knowledge. Applicants must agree to submit other materials that are required for their admission application and understand that furnishing false information on any part of their admission application may result in cancellation of admission or registration or both. Application materials, once submitted, become the property of Loyola University Maryland and cannot be returned.

Official transcripts from all post-secondary colleges or universities attended must be submitted as part of an application for graduate study. Applicants may not submit a request for advanced standing or course waivers without providing an official transcript for the coursework in question.

It is the policy of department admission committees to give promising applicants the opportunity to undertake graduate work. A careful examination of all of an applicant's qualifications precedes every admission decision. Admission committees look for previous academic achievement by considering an applicant's undergraduate and, if applicable, graduate records. The university reserves the right to request additional documentation if deemed necessary for admission purposes.

The number of acceptable candidates may exceed the number of spaces available, and the decision of the admission committee is final.

Applicants accepted for graduate work will be notified in writing. If warranted, admitted applicants will be informed of any undergraduate prerequisite or foundation courses that must be completed before commencing graduate work. When admitted, a faculty advisor will be assigned to assist in planning a program of study. New students are responsible for discussing any special needs they may have with their advisor. Individuals who may qualify for advanced standing will be granted credit at the time of initial enrollment.

Registration is permitted only after admission to a program or acceptance as a nondegree student (see Academic Regulations and Policies ).
