Loyola University Chicago

January Term


The January Term is a great opportunity for students to earn up to three credits in two weeks.  J-Term courses are designed to help students catch up or get ahead and graduate early. Courses are offered on-campus, online, and abroad to give maximum flexibility and convenience. 

On-campus courses at Lake Shore Campus will meet daily for about four hours a day.  Online courses will have daily synchronous sessions of certain duration depending on the class.  Students are expected to spend between six to ten hours a day studying, undergoing a field experience, or engaged in projects.  A J-Term class is a  full-time, immersive study experience that provides the benefit for students to focus solely on one course.  Students are urged to discuss with their academic or faculty advisor whether a J-Term course is right for them.

J-Term 2015 begins on December 29, 2014 and ends on January 10, 2015.  Classes will not be held on Wednesday, December 31, 2014, Thursday, January 1, Friday, January 2, 2015 (University holidays) or Sunday, January 4, 2014.  Classes will be held on Saturday, January 3 and January 10.

Students should refer to luc.edu/core to see how courses satisfy Core requirements.
