Loyola students and student organizations are subject to additional regulations whenever traveling, studying abroad, or visiting other campuses as representatives of the University or in circumstances where others may reasonably perceive them to be representatives of the University. For a complete list of policies pertaining to the John Felice Rome Center (JFRC) and the Loyola Vietnam Center (LVC), please refer to Article III of the Community Standards.
Except where otherwise specified, all students enrolled for any period in a study abroad program are subject to the Community Standards of Loyola University Chicago during the period of enrollment, regardless of the student’s home institution. These policies are intended to amend or supplement other University policies to account for the unique cultural and legal contexts and safety needs of students at specific campuses. In all cases, students are expected to follow the local, regional, state, and national laws of the jurisdiction. Students at all campuses are responsible for and will be held accountable for the conduct of their guests. Ignorance of these policies is not an excuse for or defense to violating them.
Students performing coursework while abroad must maintain full-time status during their time abroad in order to remain enrolled (i.e. 12 credit hours during fall and spring semesters, six credit hours during summer sessions). Students may be withdrawn from the abroad program if this minimum is not met.
Other offices or programs may also provide supplemental guidelines, rules, or expectations for students who participate in programs involving travel. Such guidelines may be considered “other University policies” under §201(10)(b) Failure to Comply.
