Special Sessions

Catch up or get ahead in your degree. 

Loyola University New Orleans offers special sessions for accelerated learning beyond the traditional fall and spring semesters. Catch up on credits or get ahead in your degree with flexible J-Term, May Term, and Summer Session courses. Most special session courses are offered online so you can maintain your studies from any location without missing a beat.

Special Session Options

Loyola offers three special session learning opportunities.

Get Ahead 

Special sessions can help save you money in the long run. Taking 9 credit hours during special sessions could help you reduce your time at Loyola by an entire semester.

Catch Up 

If you had to withdraw from a course during the fall or spring semester, or if you only took 15 or fewer credits in a previous semester, you can make up for that time by taking a special session course.

Study Abroad

Special session study abroad programs are more affordable and require less of a time commitment when compared to semester and year-long study abroad programs.
