The Academic Advising and Support Center (AASC) supports Loyola University Maryland’s overarching mission to inspire students to learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world through the lens of a liberal arts education. AASC promotes the academic progress of Loyola’s undergraduate population by working with students to understand their curricular components and their academic pathway to graduation. AASC also serves as a resource and policy guide for all Messina and major advisors as they work with students throughout their undergraduate careers. The office coordinates the declaration/change of major processes, undergraduate course registration and drop/add, and course withdrawal periods. We facilitate the initial course registration of all first-year and transfer students and offer guidance and academic support to part-time, visiting, and special students, as well as students with learning disabilities and students who are academically at risk.
