Loyola University Chicago

Dual Credit Program


Students must have the appropriate academic qualifications to be considered for Loyola's Dual Credit Program. Loyola seeks highly motivated and capable high school students who meet the following criteria:

  • Currently enrolled in the junior or senior year of high school
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale
  • Have a letter of recommendation from the high school principal that certifies year in school and academic standing

Sophomores enrolled in courses that are typically junior or senior level courses—courses whose majority enrollment is junior or senior level—may participate in the Loyola Dual Credit Program with an email request from the dual credit liaison (usually your high school principal, assistant principal, or guidance counselor) indicating the following:

  • The designated course in question is a junior or senior level course.
  • The student meets the required 3.0 GPA standard, verified by a copy of the student's high school transcript.
  • The student has scored in the 90th percentile or above composite score on his or her most recent standardized test (ACT, SAT, PSAT, MAP, IBTS, or EXPLORE), verified by copy of the official test report.
