Accelerated Admission Program

Loyola University Chicago permits a limited number of exceptionally well-qualified students from the College of Arts and Sciences and the Quinlan School of Business to enter the School of Law after completing their junior year of undergraduate study. Students participating in this accelerated admission program receive the bachelor's degree following successful completion of the first year of law school and the law degree (J.D.) after successful completion of the law school curriculum. Accelerated admission to the School of Law permits completion of the requirements for both degrees in a shorter period of time and at less expense than is usual. The accelerated admission program is limited to Loyola's undergraduate Arts and Sciences and Quinlan School of Business students (regardless of major) who attend Loyola's School of Law.
