Loyola’s academic advising services will move online as the university transitions to online classes and closes down various buildings on campus to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Going forward, students’ appointments with academic advisors will be held over Zoom — a video chat program commonly used by Loyola professors. Students can expect responses to emails within a few days, according to an email sent to students by their advisors.
Drop-in Advising — certain periods of time when students can talk to an advisor without an appointment — will continue to operate Wednesdays through Fridays from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., the email said. Instead of meeting in person, students can talk with an advisor using an online chat feature on Loyola’s website.
Additional drop-in advising dates and times will be announced closer to the course withdrawal deadline and the start of fall registration.
Loyola students will have until March 30 instead of March 23 to drop classes with a “W” on their transcripts, according to an email from Loyola’s Office of the Provost. Fall 2020 registration will start April 6.
