Loyola University Chicago student
The John Felice Rome Center welcomes applications from qualified students at Loyola University Chicago one year ahead of a term's start date. Please bear in mind that the on-line application system may close to LUC students when demand for a certain term exceeds the spots available to LUC students for that semester. We recommend that Loyola Chicago students apply early!
We have filled all beds reserved for Loyola-Chicago students for the Spring 2013 semester. No further applications from LUC students can be accepted for the Spring 2013 semester.

*Be aware that the Spring 2013 program filled by mid-March 2012, nearly nine months before the deadline! Do not wait to apply.
The following requirements must be met before an application will be reviewed:
- At least 15 semester hours of credit earned at LUC
- Attainment of at least a 2.75 cumulative grade point average
- In good academic and disciplinary standing*
- In possession of a valid passport
* continuing in good academic & disciplinary standing after admission is mandatory for being eligible to study at the JFRC.
A photocopy of a valid passport must be uploaded at the time of application.
Program Application: All applications for the JFRC must be submitted on-line. Instructions are given at the beginning of the on-line application form.
Passport: Upload a scanned copy of the basic information page of your valid passport. "Valid" for the Department of Homeland Security and consequently for all international airlines is a passport with an expiration date at least six months after the end date of your international travel. Be sure your current passport is "valid."
Academic Advisor's Recommendation: Once you have submitted your on-line application, an e-mail will automatically be sent to your academic advisor requesting this recommendation. He or she will send the recommendation back via e-mail to the Rome Center's Chicago Office.
Judicial Life Recommendation: By checking the appropriate box on the on-line application and signing the form, a LUC student authorizes the Office of Student Conduct & Conflict Resolution to relay to the Rome Center Office an applicant's current judicial status as well as his / her history.
Official Transcript: Loyola students need not provide a Loyola University Chicago transcript as the Rome Center staff can view this on LOCUS.
APPLICATION TIMELINE / SCHEDULE
Applications are reviewed upon completion. Notification about admission or denial is sent to applicants via e-mail.
While the Rome Center operates on a "rolling admission" cycle, the JFRC fills quickly. Consequently, students are encouraged to apply as early as possible (up to a year ahead). Application deadlines are invalid if the JFRC is at capacity.
