Transfer Students with 60+ Units

The Core Curriculum at Loyola Marymount University requires 12-13 courses, including 6 flagged requirements. Some courses in the Core may also satisfy requirements in the student’s major or minor. Flagged courses will typically be courses that also satisfy other Core or major requirements, so they do not add to the total course requirements for most students. All flagged courses will be at the 200-level or higher.
