CAS students with last names K-Z, Elisabeth Lee, emlee@loyno.edu

CAS Honors students with last names A-Z, Christina DiMaggio, cedimagg@loyno.edu

College of Business students, see http://business.loyno.edu/forms

College of Music and Media students, see http://cmm.loyno.edu/online-forms

 

Follow the links below for help electronically submitting information.

  • Most transactions can be completed with a detailed, communicative email.

  • If one of the items below indicates the need for an actual form instead of an email, many options exist including using the free Adobe Reader software's "Fill and Sign" function. (Check your computer's start menu before using that link -- you may already have the program. Use with caution: This site offers the free version and a paid version, where you only need the free version. Also take care to UNcheck the boxes that download other software.) Please do not lock form against editing, or embed a pdf in the body of an email -- include pdfs and jpegs as attachments.

  • Fill out forms electronically, and email them.

  • If handwritten, scan, then email, or

  • Take a picture of both sides of a form with your phone, then email.

  • Whether an item needs one signature or multiple approvals, organize your emails carefully so that all the information is in one thread. This email option is provided to make the form easier for you to complete so you don't have to obtain signatures in person across campus. For multiple signatures, you might email one person at a time, and then forward to the next person, and so on, or it might be effective to email ALL the parties at the same time (including yourself and the final recipient/s), and ask them to give their approval electronically via the email. No office is responsible for collecting signatures on your behalf.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page for a listing of all the directories and ways to find contact information for professors and offices 

  • See also the University Bulletin where all the rules, regulations, policies, and other fine-print of the University appears. http://bulletin.loyno.edu/

Study Abroad Applications

The form to get your future classes approved starts at Center for International Education. While the University transitions to the new operating system, you may need to use both your U-Achieve account and your new-LORA account to figure out what requirements you still need to schedule. Classes taken in Summer 2022 and forward will ONLY show in your new-LORA account. Print or pdf a copy of your Uachieve, and write in the classes from new-LORA in the appropriate spots to get a safe picture of what remains to be addressed. Students who started in the Fall of 2022 can rely entirely upon the Progress tab in new LORA. Current students who have been told that their Progress tab has been aligned may also rely upon Progress.

Who needs to approve? No matter what you're taking, you must copy your Major Advisor.

If you are taking classes in the Major, copy your Major Advisor and your Major Chairperson.

If taking classes for a Minor, also copy your Minor Advisor.

If you are in the Honors program copy Dr. Peterson and Ms. DiMaggio: 

peterson@loyno.edu and cedimmag@loyno.edu

Include your Dean's Office advisor in your email -- they need to be looped in on your final classes, and they need a record for your files, but they also approve any courses intended for the Loyola Core and for General Electives:

CAS students with last names A-J, Sara Clark, srclark@loyno.edu

CAS students with last names K-Z, Elisabeth Lee, emlee@loyno.edu
