January Term

Loyola Students


J-Term 2019 classes will meet for 10 days, Wednesday-Saturday, January 2-5, 2019 and Monday-Saturday, January 7-12, 2019.


Registration for J-Term courses opens on Monday, October 15, 2018 and closes Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Students should register for a J-Term class via LOCUS by selecting J-Term 2019 from the Term selector menu. For detailed information on registration and important J-term dates, please visit the J-Term Registration and Class Schedule.

*January 2, 2019 serves as the late registration period. A $50 late registration fee will be applied.

Please keep in mind that J-Term is not part of the Spring term. Students can only register for a maximum of 3 credit hours for J-Term.


If a course is over-subscribed a waitlist will be created.  To prevent automatic enrollment resulting in late-enrollment fees, waitlists will be active only until December 21.
