Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I attended a program at Loyola, but have not yet received a certificate. When should I expect this?
A: Turnaround time varies after the completion of an event, but you will normally receive a certificate of attendance within 10 business days. If 20 days have passed and you have not yet received a certificate, please email LoyolaLawCLE@luc.edu. Include your name, ARDC number, and the name and date of the program you attended.
Q: I attended a program at Loyola, but misplaced my certificate. Can I get a replacement?
A: Absolutely. Please request copies of your certificate by emailing LoyolaLawCLE@luc.edu. Include your name, ARDC number, and the name and date of the program you attended.
Q: I registered for a program, but my plans have changed. Can my registration fee be refunded?
A: Loyola is happy to issue a full refund up to one week prior to the date of the program.
Q: I missed part of a program I attended. May I be refunded in part?
A: Unfortunately, no, we do not offer partial refunds. If your plans change, we will refund your attendance fee in full up to one week before the program date.
Q: Does Loyola offer any discounts or scholarships for CLE programs?
A: Yes we do -- please see our financial hardship policy information . Consistent with this policy, we consider each request on a case-by-case basis. Please provide the necessary information and submit to LoyolaLawCLE@luc.edu no later than 10 business days prior to the program.
Q:I attended a program but did not have my ARDC number on hand during sign-in and sign-out. Will I still receive a certificate?
A: Yes, you will. We are required to keep attendee ARDC numbers on file, so you should be contacted with a request for this information once the event is over. If you receive no such request, please email LoyolaLawCLE@luc.edu with the details of your problem, as well as the name and date of the program you attended.
Q: I forgot to sign in and/or out for a program I attended. Can I still receive credit?
A: Please email LoyolaLawCLE@luc.edu with your name, ARDC number, and the name and date of the program you attended. Loyola can likely offer you credit, but may ask you to verify the hours you were in attendance.
Q: I am a member of the bar in a state other than Illinois. Will my Loyola-issued credits apply there?
A: Although Loyola can only issue Illinois CLE credit, each state has their own rules for out-of-state CLE attendance, so the answer is likely yes. Please visit the website for the CLE board in your respective state for information. We often provide supplementary letters to accompany credits we issue to out-of-state attendees, so to request one of these, or for other assistance, please email LoyolaLawCLE@luc.edu.
If you have any CLE-related questions, or would like to offer comments on any of our past programming, we welcome your feedback!
