Loyola University Chicago

School of Education

Course Management Fee

All students, in programs offered by the School of Education (including students in the Graduate School), are charged a one-time course management fee of $125 which covers your subscription to LiveText. The subscription is valid for the entire time you are enrolled at Loyola and for no less than one year beyond graduation.

LiveText is an electronic system that has been adopted by hundreds of universities to assist in program assessment. LiveText provides you with access to a very valuable technology tool that assists you in assessing and documenting your academic efforts, and allows the School of Education to gather necessary outcome information for ongoing program assessment and to build the finest professional preparation programs as possible. Various key projects and assignments will be assessed using the LiveText system. The system will permit you to create your own on-line professional portfolio documenting the mastery of skills and knowledge benchmarked against professional standards.

Billing Information

The Course Management Fee is posted to your account approximately ten days after the start of your first semester - Fall or Spring.  For all students admitted for Summer, posting occurs in July.

Certificate Pick-up & Registration

LiveText certificate cards are distributed at the beginning of each academic year at New Graduate Student Convocation and Undergraduate New Student Orientation. Once you receive your certificate card, you should register it using your LUC email account and then put the certificate it in a safe place.  If you lose your certificate card, you will be charged another $125 Course Management Fee to replace it.

If you did not recieve your LiveText certificate card at the beginning of the year, please contact Dr. Andrew Oroz (aoroz@luc.edu) for information on how to receive their LiveText certificate cards.
