Have you been thinking about making a change? Going back to school? Finishing that degree, or maybe starting a new one? Online programs at Loyola continue to expand at the undergraduate, graduate, associate, and professional levels. With two weeks until the fall session starts, you still have time to apply. 

Help us help you take that critical first step. 

Busy adults hoping to complete their undergraduate degrees can finish what they started through our online Bachelor of Applied Science program, a flexible online program that provides busy students the opportunity to design a course of study around their academic and professional goals. At the graduate level, we have a robust offering of online master’s and doctoral degree opportunities. Through the newly relaunched City College, Loyola provides high-quality continuing education for adult learners, with “stackable credentials,” including associate degrees and certificate programs for anyone seeking to upskill, reskill, or even build skills for a new side hustle.

With 22 programs and 150 classes offered online at Loyola, nearly everyone has an opportunity to pursue their dreams, all while working at their own pace. Led by Online Dean Paul Cesarini, our one-stop-shop online and City College team is here to help.

The College of Law created a new evening J.D. program to maximize flexibility without sacrificing the academic rigor and personalized attention we’re proud to offer every student at Loyola University New Orleans. We’ve combined in-person and experiential learning with the flexibility of asynchronous work to help you achieve your professional goals on your time.

Loyola’s College of Law is now the first law school in Louisiana to accept GRE scores as well as LSATs, a move that not only helps to streamline the application process for high achievers but helps to diversify our student body by welcoming scientists, journalists, educators, and others with advanced degrees to take that next step and pivot their careers. Have you always had dreams of becoming a first-class litigator? You can earn your J.D. part-time while you work in just four years.

And for those of you non-lawyer types with a vested interest in understanding how the law works, the College of Law now offers a Master of Arts in Environmental Law and a Master of Arts in Health Law and Administration, both designed to help people working in a wide range of positions benefit from understanding the legal framework that governs these highly regulated spaces. 

Deadline to enroll: Our next JD application cycle - for students hoping to enroll in Fall 2023 - starts October 1 and runs through July 21, 2023. Applications for non-JD programs will be accepted during the same cycle.
