Graduation Requirements and Expenses

Students must complete a minimum of 24 credit hours of study over a period of one or two years. Full time students should be able to complete coursework during one academic year. Tuition is charged per credit hour. The rate per credit hour for the academic year 2014-15 is $1,410. In addition, students should budget for living expenses, including room and board, health insurance, transportation, books, and supplies. The amount depends on your individual needs. Additional student fees apply.

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. 

Scholarship ProgramLoyola 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. Awards are generally made only after an applicant has been offered admission and has expressed continued, strong interest in attending Loyola.
