Forensic Science Program

Congratulations Class of 2022!

Graduation is always exciting, but we were thrilled to see this year’s class walk across the stage in May. We know that this year’s class overcame many obstacles, both academic and personal, and we have no doubt you will continue to succeed. Congratulations!

The Forensic Science Program is proud to be FEPAC accredited through 2027. 

FEPAC, or Forensic Science Education Accreditation Commission, is a nationally recognized accreditation body specific to forensic science education.  FEPAC sets standards related to forensic science education and evaluates programs according to these standards.  These include, but are not limited to, curriculum requirements (natural sciences and forensic sciences), faculty, institutional support, and involvement with forensic science laboratories & organizations. Programs must submit an application (self-study) and undergo an onsite visit.  Accreditation is valid for five years, provided the programs continue to meet the requirements and provide appropriate documentation.   

The Forensic Science Program at Loyola completed the self-study and on-site assessment last year and was awarded re-accreditation in the spring of 2022.
