Summer Programs

In addition to our semester, year-long, and study tour options, Loyola also offers a number of independent and faculty-led summer programs. There is a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA requirement for all summer programs. All summer study abroad program fees are paid to Yvette McMillan-Bell in Student Administrative Services (SAS) in Maryland Hall. Accepted students will have one meeting and one predeparture orientation with their program director to review paperwork, safety measures, packing details, and all necessary information prior to departure.  

The philosophy of Loyola's Office of International Programs is to provide students with an in-depth experience of another culture by focusing on one program. Therefore, programs like Semester at Sea and similar programs would not be acceptable. The Office of International Programs must approve any international program that a student wishes to obtain credits from while at Loyola University Maryland.

Application Process:

Students wishing to apply to a summer program MUST attend an information session first (or meet with the program director).


  • All Summer Programs: Monday, February 17; 4 pm (HU132)

Students give their name and ID# to the program director at the information session (or meeting). The program director submits this information to the Office of International Programs, which will authorize the student to apply to the summer program through WebAdvisor.

Students have the option to select a non-Loyola summer program. The program selected should fit into their academic course of study. Once students have selected a study abroad program, they should do the following:

  • Students must have their non-Loyola program approved by the Office of International Programs.
  • Students must complete the Summer Abroad Program Approval/Transfer Course Request Form by March 14.
  • The non-Loyola program must meet the minimum program requirement of at least 39 contact hours and four week duration. 
  • Courses and credits earned abroad must be recorded on an official transcript from a four year, accredited (either in the United States or abroad), degree-granting institution.
  • Students applying directly to a university abroad will have to submit proof the university abroad is accredited through the Ministry of Education in that host country.
  • Once the program has been approved, students will need to have their course(s) approved by the department chair.
  • Students must earn a grade of 2.00 (C or higher) in each approved course.
  • Grades are not transferable, but are used to calculate Honors at graduation.
  • The Summer Abroad Program Approval/Transfer Course Request Form and all documentation required for approving a non-Loyola summer abroad program must be completed and submitted by March 1.
  • Materials submitted late may not be approved.
