Dear Incoming Freshman Parents,

Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, we are unable to provide on-campus testing for incoming freshmen (Loyola Class of 2024). The May 2nd and May 20th testing dates will remain the same, but we are moving the placement exam to an at-home online testing window starting May 2nd and closing on May 20th.

Please read the attached frequently asked questions (FAQ) document as well as Loyola’s Online Math Testing Informational Handout. Then, fill out the mandatory Math Placement Pre-Registration Form. Completing the Math Placement Pre-Registration Form is extremely important for our record keeping purposes. This form is the only way we will know you received the updated 2020 change to the Math placement exam.

By the end of April, you will receive enrollment information for the ALEKS online testing platform. Thank you for your understanding, flexibility, and commitment to upholding Loyola’s tradition of academic excellence.
