Why Summer at Loyola?

Stay on track. Save money.

Summer school saves you money in the long run. If you take just one summer class between the freshman and sophomore, sophomore and junior, and junior and senior years, you will accumulate 9 credit hours which may enable you to reduce your time at Loyola by an entire semester. This not only helps you graduate on time, it also saves you money.

Get more out of Loyola

Make your Loyola degree more valuable and work harder for you. See how easy it is to complete an academic minor or a specific concentration. 

Wherever your summer takes you

Our robust list of exciting online course offerings mean pursuing your academic goals won't interfere with your summer travel plans.
