Make the most of your summer

Short and sweet: enrolling in Loyola’s Summer Session means you’ll complete your degree program faster. It’s worth keeping an eye on the session schedule to see if you can fit some classes in during your break. We offer undergraduate and graduate sessions in each of our colleges (Business, Arts and Sciences, Music and Fine Arts, and Law). We also offer travel programs and special programs.

The available courses are generally standard offerings that transfer to other colleges and universities. Visiting student should check with his or her home institution about transferring course work.

Every summer, the following online and on campus sessions are available in both day and night timeslots:

  • May Session 
  • Two five-week sessions
  • Two six-week sessions
  • One seven-week session
  • One eight-week session
  • One ten-week session

Remember to check the university's Loyola Online Records Access (LORA) system starting October 26 for the summer schedule containing course information and times. Registration opens on November 6.
