Opportunities for Continuing Education
Continuing Education Workshops
The Institute of Pastoral Studies offers one credit hour courses as Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) in a workshop format to participants who are not students of Loyola University. Workshops vary as to schedule; however, all workshops will meet for a required 12 hours of contact time. All participants are required to be present for the duration of each workshop as well as fulfilling the individual workshop presenters’ requirements for obtaining certification of Continuing Education Units. Each one credit course is the equivalent of 12 CEU’s, and the cost is $325 per workshop (total). A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the workshop. IPS is authorized by the State of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to provide continuing education credit.

Post-Graduate Auditing Program
To encourage continuing education, IPS has developed the Post-Graduate Auditing Program.
This program allows students holding a master's degree in specified areas to register for additional study in the same area as an auditor at a 50% tuition reduction.
Relevant degrees include master’s degrees in theology, pastoral counseling, pastoral studies, religious education, or divinity.
Registration for specific classes is for audit only and not for credit.
Participants using the auditing program are required to complete all the assignments of the courses for which they register.
Audited courses may not be used for credit toward any additional degree at Loyola.
Registration in a particular course is governed by the ordinary approval applicable to any graduate course and is further limited by the availability of space in the desired class.
A participant may not take courses for credit and audit simultaneously.
Students should apply to IPS through the Graduate and Professional Enrollment Management (GPEM) Office as a non-degree seeking student. If the student is an IPS graduate, please fill out the Reapplicaton Form and submit it to the GPEM office. After being admitted, the student must contact IPS and request Post-Graduate Tuition Auditor status. This must be done at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester.
