Once the term begins and instructors publish their courses, Sakai is open for students to complete their studies until the specified term end date. Specific dates and deadlines are posted in Sakai each term.

The following academic calendars apply to online programs in Business Law, Compliance & ERM, Child Law, and Health Law.

Other Important Dates

The Online Programs team typically holds Education Immersion Weekends (EIWs) twice a year. EIWs offer programming to reinforce learning objectives, provide a venue for networking, and foster communication among students, alumni, and faculty. EIWs are usually held at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Based on current guidance surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended the requirement to attend Education Immersion Weekends. At this time, EIWs remain recommended but optional. For more information, please email Elizabeth Tripp at etripp@luc.edu.
