Tuition Update

Tuition Information for Academic Year 2015–16

Dear Student,

This past December, the University's Board of Trustees approved tuition and fees for the 2015–2016 academic year. In order to maintain the quality of our academic programs and to moderate increases for continuing students, an increase of 2.5 percent has been approved for current students’ undergraduate tuition for the 2015–2016 academic year. Room rates will also increase by an average of 2.5 percent, and full-time student activity fees will increase by 3.2 percent. Increases will go into effect fall 2015.

The University’s Board of Trustees carefully scrutinizes our financial resources and strategic investments to be sure that tuition is priced fairly and competitively with private colleges and universities. We work to keep your tuition at a level that provides the highest quality education in the most state-of-the art facilities as possible. We continually strive to enhance our student services, as we did recently by restructuring and adding resources within the Career Development Center, introducing a new course evaluation system, and opening the Damen Student Center addition, which houses the new Halas Recreation Center.

We have also taken actions across the board to improve the quality of your academic experience here at Loyola. This year we hired nearly 70 new full-time faculty members in a variety of disciplines, and 75 percent of the University’s core courses are now taught by full-time faculty. Loyola continues to provide $143 million in annual financial aid to our students.

For details about tuition, fees, and room rates for the 2015–2016 academic year, please visit LUC.edu/bursar. Thank you for being a valued part of the Loyola community. My best wishes to you for a successful spring semester.
