Student & Graduate Reviews

3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2013

The Online Master of Jurisprudence was not only beneficial to my career, but it was convenient. As a full-time working professional I was able to complete my Masters degree in two years. The faculty is extremely knowledgable and the course work was fair. I feel honored to have a Masters degree from Loyola University Chicago.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros outweigh the cons for me. It is an excellent university. There is however not a lot of funding for graduate students in the specialist for school psychology program. You do get most of your funding through the FAFSA in subsidized or unsubsidized though. The fellowships, assistantships, grants, etc. are very competitive.

I feel that this is overall a great program as it the program is not offered at many grad schools and Loyola is doing well to provide it.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the marketing program at Loyola University. I think it is such a well rounded, relevant approach to understand the field. My only complaint is that financial aid award is not helpful, and the classes are extremely expensive.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Loyola is a great school with very helpful faculty and administration. I like that we are not located directly in the city because it makes the cost of living a lot cheaper. We are also still able to have a great social life but the financial aid for the medical school could be better.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty is amazing and really works with the students to help them succeed. I am looking for scholarships, as Loyola University Chicago is a private school and is very expensive.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The school has an excellent reputation and network. Cons: Affordability
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I started off in a different graduate program and then transfer into Loyola's Higher Education Program. I love this program, the faculty, staff, and the student body have been very supportive. Students are not just only students in this program, but they are seen as equals to the administration and as potential coworkers or faculty. The only downside to this program is the cost. Loyola is a private institution and does not offer enough grants or scholarships for graduate students.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Loyola University Chicago embodies the character, goals and values I strive to live for in my everyday life. My graduate program strengthens and challenges every aspect needed in my field to succeed. One of the most beneficial elements in my program is studying in Chicago, amongst some of the world's most competitive universities and business professionals. Loyola University Chicago stands out because the professors actually believe in me. Before I began taking classes, I accepted a job working on campus assisting the chairman of my department. Through this opportunity, I got a chance to meet professors, share my career ideas, and fully realize that this school wholeheartedly endorses who I am, but more importantly, who I want to be.
