Loras College 9th and 10th Semester Tuition Free Guarantee

Loras College 9th and 10th Semester Tuition Free Guarantee

In the ever changing dynamic of the world in which we live and given the uncertainty of exactly how the 2020-21 academic year will unfold, Loras College is offering a tuition free 9th and 10th semester to assist undergraduate students in completing their bachelor’s degree.

The strength of the Loras College experience comes from the learning that occurs both inside and outside the classroom. From internships to supporting Special Olympics events on campus, many accommodations will have to be made during the academic year to keep our students and community safe.  Recognizing that much of what the College will experience this year is outside of our control, we wanted to provide some relief to students who are worried about whether or not they will be able to engage in all aspects of the Loras experience.
