The Master of Criminal Justice program doe NOT require a Graduate Records Exam (GRE) for admission.
Loyola has traditionally offered reduced tuition for Law Enforcement officers who attend our university through an MOU with the employing agency. Most of our law enforcement students are able to transfer credits up to 18 hours from police academy coursework that can be applied to the requirements for graduation in the BCJ program. If your agency is interested in exploring an MOU with Loyola to advance a conversation about a tuition reduction MOU, please feel free to contact the department.
Our alumni are well placed throughout the region and are influencing Criminal Justice policy and practice. Across our region countless Loyola graduates of our undergraduate, graduate and Law School have played critical roles in Criminal Justice leadership. We stand ready to work with your staff in any way that we can to help them experience the Loyola community of scholars and law enforcement leaders.
