The John Felice Rome Center, The Beijing Center, & Loyola    

For students attending Loyola's John Felice Rome Center, the Beijing Center for Chinese Studies, Vietnam Program in Ho Chi Minh City, a Loyola exchange program, or four of the Jesuit Affiliate programs (see OIP website) all assistance is transferable to the student abroad program, with the exception of Federal Work-Study. Students attending all other Affiliate, API, CIS, IES, SIT, SRAS, or USAC programs may receive State or Federal grants or loans as part of their financial aid award, but not the institutional assistance. 

For a list of Loyola exchange programs, visit: www.luc.edu/studyabroad. All financial aid processing must be completed before your departure. Financial aid processing includes: signing all promissory notes, completing online entrance loan counseling, and enrolling in Direct Deposit for refund processing. To review the status of your financial aid, review your to-do list in LOCUS: www.luc.edu/locus.

Visiting Students to the John Felice Rome Center and The Beijing Center

Federal regulations allow a student to receive financial assistance only from the school from which he/she will receive a degree. A visiting student who attends Loyola's Rome and Beijing Centers cannot receive federal, state or institutional grant or loan assistance from Loyola.

If the students "home" school agrees to process aid on the student's behalf, the student must arrange for a consortium agreement between the student's school and Loyola. This agreement allows the home school to award summer financial assistance, even though the student is enrolled at Loyola. Inquiries regarding consortium agreements should be directed to abroadfinaid@luc.edu

Please note: Some schools do not allow participation in consortium agreements; your home school will determine your eligibility for a consortium agreement. The options for financial assistance for students in ineligible programs are limited to Alternative Loans.
