Loyola University Chicago

January Term

Courses & Registration

January Term is a great opportunity for students to earn up to three credits in two weeks. J-Term courses are designed to help students catch up, or get ahead and graduate early. Courses are offered on-campus, online, and abroad to give maximum flexibility and convenience. A J-Term class is a full-time, immersive study experience that provides the benefit for students to focus solely on one course. Students are urged to discuss with their academic or faculty advisor whether a J-Term course is right for them.

For J-Term 2017, on-campus courses at the Lake Shore Campus will meet daily for four hours. Online courses will have synchronous sessions of certain duration depending on the class. Students are expected to spend approximately six hours a day studying, undergoing a field experience, or engaged in projects.

J-Term 2017 will be held Tuesday- Saturday, January 3-7, 2017 and Monday-Friday, January 9-13, 2017.

Students should refer to LUC.edu/core to see how courses satisfy Core requirements.
