Loyola University Chicago

January Term

Courses & Registration

January Term is a great opportunity to earn up to three credits in less than two weeks - allowing students to stay on track, explore new opportunities, get ahead, or graduate early.  

J-Term 2023 classes will meet for 10 days, Tuesday-Saturday, January 3-7, 2023, and Monday-Friday, January 9-13, 2023. While the majority of classes are offered online, we recommend you check the course list on this site or  LOCUS for mode of instruction. 

A J-Term class is a full-time, immersive study experience that allows students to focus solely on one course. Students are expected to spend approximately six hours a day studying or engaged in projects. Students are urged to contact their academic advisor to discuss whether a J-Term course is right for them.

  • Online courses may have synchronous sessions of certain duration, depending on the class. 
  • We recommend that students review courses in LOCUS for updates and for detailed course information, including synchronous times, that may have been scheduled by the instructor.

Students should refer to the University Core site to see how specific courses satisfy Core requirements.  For complete course descriptions, please go to "Browse Course Catalog" in LOCUS (guest users should use this link).
