Certified copies of transcripts are acceptable; faxed copies of transcripts are not considered official. If you attended Loyola University Chicago previously, you do not need to request transcripts; we have them on record.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are waiving the GMAT/GRE requirement for fall 2020 applicants. We encourage applicants to submit the remainder of their materials by July 15th. Contact us at QuinlanGrad@luc.edu with questions.
A professional resume may be uploaded through the online application or you may email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An official TOEFL, IELTS or PTE score report is required for international applicants whose native language is not English.

The minimum acceptable total score on the Internet-Based Test (IBT) of the TOEFL exam is 90. The minimum acceptable total score on the IELTS exam is 6.5. The minimum acceptable score on the PTE exam is 61.
This requirement is waived for those who have completed a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree program or those who are citizens of or have completed a bachelor's degree at a recognized institution at which the language of instruction is English in these countries: Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, or New Zealand.
