Loyola University Chicago

Institute for Paralegal Studies


Admission to the Institute for Paralegal Studies occurs on a rolling basis.  Please view our admission deadlines for specific dates.

Prospective students should begin the application process one month before the session begins. After all application materials have been submitted and the admission interview has been completed, an admission decision can be made. The admission decision takes 3-5 days.

What typically takes the most time for applicants, is the assembling of the application materials. Please allow yourself sufficient time to request a letter of recommendation and to order your official transcripts.

To schedule your admission interview, there is a calendar within the online application.  You can also schedule by contacting the Institute office at 312.915.6820 or paralegal@luc.edu.
