About Loyola Online
Loyola University Chicago is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), having first earned accreditation in 1921. Online Learning at Loyola offers high-quality, rigorous courses and programs for undergraduate, graduate, professional and continuing education students that are characterized by the transformative experience of the Jesuit tradition.
Loyola University offered its first online programs in 1998 with a degree program in Computer Science and a master's degree and certificate program in Bioethics in 2002. Since then, our Online Learning offerings have expanded to include 8 adult degree completion programs, 36 graduate programs, and 38 certificate programs.
