Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid is easier than you think. A large percentage of Loyola students receive some form of financial aid, including:

  • Federal Loans: Students enrolled at least half time are eligible for the Federal Direct Student Loan Program, which means that they can borrow subsidized or unsubsidized loans based on need. Parents of a dependent, undergraduate student may also qualify for these federal loans to pay for the student’s education.
  • Private Loans: There are also various private loan options available to students or their parents to pay for education.
  • Grants: Federal Pell Grants are available to qualifying students. The amount of aid awarded is based on financial need, cost of attendance, credits per semester, and various other factors. Additional federal or state grants might be available to students based on eligibility.

Our friendly staff will work with you one-on-one to help you understand your options and check your eligibility. Students should complete the FAFSA as early as possible after January 1 in order to be considered for all types of financial aid.
