Student Responsibilities

As a Loyola University Chicago student, you are expected to take responsibility for your receipt of financial assistance. View the Student Aid Handbook for more information. We expect you to:

Update your local and permanent address

The Financial Aid Office sends mail to your local address while classes are in session, and uses your permanent address during winter and summer breaks. Whenever changes occur, please update your local and permanent address through LOCUS.

Check your Loyola e-mail account and LOCUS

We frequently send information, requests or updates to your Loyola e-mail account. Be sure to regularly check your Loyola e-mail account or arrange to have messages sent to your Loyola address forwarded to the e-mail program you use.

Respond as quickly as possible

The Financial Aid Office may request additional information from you, for example if you are selected for Verification. It is very important that you provide the information as quickly as you can. Remember that aid programs have deadlines. Delays in returning materials or requested information can cause delays in processing and disbursement, and possibly loss of eligibility.

Maintain satisfactory academic progress

Students must be making satisfactory progress to continue receiving financial aid. Satisfactory academic progress has three components: quantitative, qualitative and degree completion. Students must satisfy all components in order to continue to receive aid. For more details, see our Satisfactory Academic Progress page
