Summer Session

PROGRAM COORDINATOR: Teri Berthelot, Office: 562 Monroe Hall

Loyola's Summer Session offers students a chance to acquire additional coursework in a variety of time schedules. Two five-week sessions along with two six-week M.B.A. sessions are available. The courses offered are, in most instances, standard offerings which usually transfer to other colleges and universities. It is always advisable, however, for the guest student to check with his or her home institution about transferring coursework.

Our summer programs offer study in numerous areas; at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. Travel programs and special programs are also available.

Loyola's Summer Session allows students the opportunity to complete an intended area of study in a shorter period of time. Students pursuing degrees at Loyola are encouraged to advance their progress toward degree completion by attending Loyola's Summer Session. The summer schedule containing course information and their times is published in March. Contact the Office of Student Records at (504) 865-3530 or visit the web at for a copy.


All Loyola students, any student in good standing at another university, and all entering freshmen are eligible to attend the summer sessions. Undergraduate students not currently enrolled at Loyola should log on to the summer session home page at to apply online and for information regarding summer session. Students who are interested in summer law classes should contact the Office of Law Records at (504) 861-5575 for information on summer school.


All the general rules of the university apply, as described in this bulletin, with the following exception: a student may schedule no more than six hours per session (or seven, if one course is a laboratory science course) without the written permission of his or her dean, and only then if the student has a cumulative average of 3.0 or better. Loyola students desiring to attend summer sessions elsewhere must have prior, written permission from their dean if they want such credits to apply toward a Loyola degree. Students are hereby cautioned that deans will only grant permission to take courses elsewhere when the student can demonstrate compelling reasons to do so.


Campus housing is available during the summer. For further information, refer to the section titled Student Life.
