Tuition Discounts

Loyola University New Orleans alumni, current students enrolled at Loyola University New Orleans, Loyola faculty and staff, and active duty or retired military are eligible for tuition discounts on most courses and programs.

Certificates

Upon successful completion, Loyola University New Orleans Certificates of Completion with Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded to eligible students.

Continuing Education Units, or CEUs, are a nationally recognized standard for documenting successful completion of non-credit programs and courses intended to improve the knowledge and skills of working adults. One CEU equals ten contact hours of participation in organized continuing education classes and/or training conducted by a qualified institution/instructor.

Certificates will be emailed to students who are registered in an eligible program and/or course. If the student would like to have the certificate mailed to a physical address, the student must purchase a certificate by clicking the link below. There is a $15 fee to have the certificate printed and mailed. The fee is for 1 certificate per program and/or course enrolled.
