Foreign students generally do not have access to federal loans in the United States. International students are encouraged to seek funding from sources in their home countries. For assistance in locating sponsoring organizations, contact the U.S. embassy, consulate, or information agency in your country. EducationUSA provides an extensive listing of scholarships and grants for international students.
Please note that students applying for F-1 or J-1 visas must show sufficient funds for educational and personal expenses for each year they plan to study in the U.S. before the university will issue the necessary immigration forms. Holders of F-1 or J- 1 visa are not eligible for employment.
Loyola has a scholarship program for exceptionally qualified students who may apply to receive a partial-tuition scholarship. Admissions decisions are made without regard to requests for financial assistance.
