Transfer Credit

How can I make college more affordable?

Loyola is transfer-friendly and has a robust program that allows you to earn credit for the learning you’ve already gained through your work, travel and the things you are passionate about, such as hobbies and causes. These options - transfer, Prior Learning Assessment, College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and evaluated training - can save you thousands of dollars and several semesters.
