  • Why Go Back to College?

    Education has mattered enormously during this recent recessionary period, in terms of helping individuals to avoid unemployment and garner higher wages. Those with only a high school education have continued to lose jobs throughout the entire recession, and their wages have slid lower. An associate’s degree improves prospects. A bachelor’s degree improves wages and employment even more.
  • 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.
