Fall 2020 Study Abroad Programs Closed

Read the latest letter from OIP regarding the closure of Loyola's fall study abroad programs.

More than 60 percent of Loyola students participate in the university's extensive study abroad program. Loyola sponsors study abroad opportunities in over 20 countries and also assists students in applying to a variety of external opportunities each year.

Most students go abroad in their junior year, usually for a single semester, although full-year, summer and holiday study tours may also be available. There are study abroad programs taught in English, total immersion programs taught in the native language, or combinations of the two. Loyola has developed study abroad opportunities to accommodate all majors, but you should begin planning for your international study experience as soon as possible, especially if you plan to major in business, math, or science.

Pass/No Credit Grading Form:

Spring 2020 study abroad students: If needed, complete and submit the Study Abroad P/NC Grading Form to your program director by April 28.
