Adult Learner Applicants

It's never too late

Keep Learning | Keep Growing | Keep Working

Adult learners are students who are at least 24 years old, usually working full time, looking to finish an undergraduate degree they started years ago or begin their dream of starting an undergraduate program.

Readmission to Loyola

Some adult learners began a program of study at Loyola years ago, but did not complete an undergraduate degree at that time. Students returning to Loyola to finish an undergraduate degree should apply for readmission to the University, even if they have taken classes at another college in the meantime.

Post-Baccalaureate Certificates

Adult students who already have an undergraduate degree may be looking for post-baccalaureate certification. Loyola offers Post-Bacc certificate programs in Advanced Accounting, Pre-Health, and Music Education. Students interested in one of these programs use the Certificate Programs Application.

Military History - Honorable Discharge

We salute you! Truly. As a yellow ribbon school, we encourage veterans of all ages to talk with us about transferring. If you’ve taken military credits, we’ll need your ACE transcripts to review. Standardized test scores are not required but if you have them, please include them. We also require your college transcripts (if you have less than 15 hours of college credit, also submit your high school transcripts) and a letter of recommendation from your commanding officer. This can be emailed, mailed or faxed to the attention of your Admissions counselor.
