For nearly 100 years, the School of Continuing & Professional Studies has been a leader in education for adult learners. A degree from Loyola is not just a piece of paper. It's a sign of your commitment to quality in your profession, and it tells recruiters you are ready and capable to advance in your career.
Our faculty are leaders in their field, and will prepare you in the Jesuit tradition: through rigorous thought and debate, and by putting learning into practice in today's dynamic workplace. At the School of Continuing and Professional Studies, we prepare people to lead extraordinary lives.
Loyola SCPS offers degree completion and certificate programs designed for adult learners and other "non-traditional" students. Throughout your time at Loyola, you'll have access to a multitude of resources, from on-site and digital libraries, career counselors, and job fairs, to specialized services for veterans and transfer students. After completing their programs, Loyola's adult students are well-positioned for career success.
"My experience through SCPS at Loyola University Chicago for the last four terms (now on my fifth with the aid of the scholarship!) has been amazing and exactly what I wanted in an adult education program. After initially attempting to complete my undergraduate degree immediately after high school, it’s been difficult for me to find a program that I feel proud of being a part of as well as one that fits so well with my professional and personal schedules."
—Jonathon Horning, SCPS Continuing Education Student
