Magis Program

Supporting you

Helping you to succeed

In the Jesuit tradition, “Magis” means “more,” and at Loyola, we’re always asking, “what more can we do to help our students succeed?”

What is the Magis Program?

The Magis Program at Loyola is a yearlong program created to ensure that our students make a successful transition from high school to college. During the application evaluation process, our admissions committee identifies students who have the potential to make a significant impact on our community but their academic record may not be as strong.

The goal

The goal of the program is to assist those students with developing academic skills that will help them with Loyola’s rigorous academic environment and help them succeed.

Program Structure
  • Students are admitted under a provisional status. Provisional admission status means that a student enters Loyola on academic probation and must complete their first year of study with a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative grade point average.
  • Students must have made satisfactory academic progress, per the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, in order to progress to their sophomore year.
  • Intentional academic advising helps students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to take full responsibility for completing a program consistent with their educational and professional aspirations. Students who enroll at Loyola will meet with their Magis advisor during orientation
