Admission Requirements

 

 

 

Application Deadlines (rolling admission)

Students may begin the certificate program in either the Fall (September) or Spring (January) term.

 

  • A Completed Application Form 
    You may submit your application form online
  • Official Transcripts
    Applicants must submit official transcripts for all undergraduate and any graduate work. To be eligible for admission, your transcript must show an earned bachelor's degree or a bachelor’s degree in progress. Certified copies of transcripts are acceptable; faxed copies of transcripts are not considered official. If you attended Loyola University Chicago previously, you do not need to request transcripts; we have them on record. Transcripts must show a GPA of at least a 3.0. 

    In exceptional cases, applicants whose undergraduate GPA is below 3.0 may be admitted. Each program area gives meaningful consideration to the applicant's graduate GPA, recommendations, professional experience and reasons for pursuing a graduate program, as well as to the diversity of the student body.
  • A Personal Statement
    Your statement should be 1-3 pages, and you should describe your:
    1. Personal and/or professional interests and reasons for pursuing this program
