Careers

Hide Header:

Students may have an undergraduate, graduate, professional (law), doctoral (nursing practice) and continuing education career at Loyola University. Each career has its own grade point average, which will not reflect courses taken that are at a level different from a student’s career at that time. Therefore, for students who receive a bachelor’s degree and return to take undergraduate courses as a graduate student, their grade point average at the time of the awarding of the undergraduate degree will not be affected by this later coursework.
