Loyola Programs

Participating in a Loyola program affords students the opportunity to study abroad while maintaining their Loyola student status. Students typically pay tuition, room, and fees to Loyola. In return, students receive a study abroad package that covers their tuition, room, fees, airfare, and other amenities which vary depending upon the costs in the country of study. All scholarships transfer to the program and all grades and credits will appear on the Loyola transcript. All study abroad applications must be submitted by due the first Wednesday in December in the sophomore year for both fall and spring.
