Loyola University Chicago

English Language Learning Program

Loyola’s ESL program

Application Procedure

At present, the ELLP can only accept students who have already been admitted to Loyola University as degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate students.  We would therefore like to recommend a wonderful benefit Loyola University Chicago has for international students called “conditional admission.”  Students who want to pursue undergraduate or graduate study at Loyola—but who may not have a TOEFL score of 79 or an IELTS score of 6.5--can still be admitted as undergraduate or graduate students to most programs at Loyola--if they meet all of the admissions requirements--as long as they complete one or more semesters of full-time English study in our English Language Learning Program (ELLP). 


We encourage you to apply directly to Loyola University for undergraduate or graduate study and conditional admission.
