MEd in Higher Education
Fall: February 28th (Rolling Admission)
You may submit your application form online.
Rolling AdmissionsWe evaluate applications to the Master's in Higher Education Program as they are received. Applicants will be notified of their admission status shortly after their application process is complete (completion includes the submission of letters of recommendation). Admitted applicants will begin their program with the respective cohort in the Fall semester.
Applicants must submit official transcripts for all undergraduate and any graduate work. To be eligible for admission, your transcript must show an earned bachelor's degree or a bachelor’s degree in progress. Certified copies of transcripts are acceptable; faxed copies of transcripts are not considered official. If you attended Loyola University Chicago previously, you do not need to request transcripts; we have them on record.
Transcripts must show a GPA of at least a 3.0. In exceptional cases, applicants whose undergraduate GPA is below 3.0 may be admitted. We give meaningful consideration to the applicant's GPA, recommendations, professional experience and reasons for pursuing a graduate program, as well as to the diversity of the student body.
Three Letters of Recommendation
If you supply your recommender’s email address as part of your completed online application form, then your recommendation letters may be submitted online. Or, your recommenders may choose to mail them to:
Graduate & Professional Enrollment Management
820 N. Michigan Ave.
Chicago, IL 60611
We ask that you submit only three letters, no more, no less. Recommenders must include at least one from a previous faculty member.

- Academic and research interests, as well as your professional goals;
- Life experiences that have influenced your view of social justice.
