Program Description

Arrupe College is a two-year college of Loyola University Chicago that continues the Jesuit tradition of offering a rigorous liberal arts education to a diverse population, many of whom are the first in their family to pursue higher education.

Using an innovative model that ensures affordability while providing care for the whole person -intellectually, morally, and spiritually- Arrupe prepares its graduates to continue on to a bachelor's program or move into meaningful employment. Heeding the call of its namesake, renowned Jesuit leader Pedro Arrupe, S.J., the college inspires its students to strive for excellence, work for justice, and become "persons for others."

The College Placement Department strives to build meaningful relationships with colleges across the country that have the infrastructure, resources and desire to enroll Arrupe College graduates. We seek a collaborative relationship to implement best practices leading to continued persistence for our transfer students.

Arrupe is an intensive program designed to build critical thinkers and disciplined leaders. A strong candidate graduates high school with a 2.5 GPA and completes an in-person interview at Arrupe College. Students who complete the program graduate with an associate's degree. These 62 credit hours are transferable to most Illinois institutions and many out-of-state colleges and universities.
