General Elective Requirement
A total of 120 credits are required to earn your degree at Loyola University Chicago.
For students who may have general elective hours to complete, there are a number of ways to satisfy this requirement:
- Transfer credits (not already used in the major, concentration, or University Core).
- Complete one of our professional certificates and obtain an additional credential while also satisfying your elective requirement.
- Prior Learning Assessment, CLEP, DSST, or ACE-evaluated credits (such as your military transcript) can all be used to fulfill any remaining elective credit requirements that a student may have.
