Undergraduate Admission

Loyola is the place where...

You’ll redefine what’s possible. Run toward challenges. Hold your beliefs up to the light. Listen better. Express yourself more clearly. Understand how it all connects. Make new discoveries at the points where ideas splinter and diverge. Think more. Think differently. Think bigger. Forge the way. And no matter what shape your journey takes, one thing is certain: You’ll leave here forever changed.

Forge Your Own Path

When you apply to Loyola, you’re applying to the university as a whole and not any individual program, school, or major. Once you enroll, you can pursue a major and take classes in any and all of the university’s three schools. Explore our 45+ majors, 50+ minors, and pre-professional programs in medicine, health, and law.
