Please Note: If you opt to pay online, students will need their official Loyola username and password to sign into the secure webpage.
For ACADEMY and INSTITUTE programs: Tuition and housing invoices for student accounts are maintained and distributed by the Office of the Bursar. These invoices can be accessed through your student’s LOCUS account using your previously obtained Loyola username and password. LOYOLA NO LONGER SENDS PAPER COPIES OF TUTION STATEMENTS, so all student specific information must be accessed online through the LOCUS system.
LOCUS is an integrated, Web-based student information system. LOCUS allows students to enroll in courses, view and process financial information, change addresses and phone numbers, request official transcripts and more.
For SEMINAR programs: You will receive a notification from our Pre-College Summer Scholars team with an included link and instructions on how to access our Seminar Tuition Marketplace. This email will be sent in mid-June.
Obtaining Your Username & Password
This information can be found on your application status page. If not found, please call our Loyola Help Desk at (773) 508-7190. You will need to verify your identity by providing your:
- date of birth
- last (4) digits of your social security number
Once enrolled in your class(es), students and their parents/guardians receive a bill due in full. Loyola generates electronic bills (e-Bills) on the 15th of every month for student accounts which have tuition or housing balances. Soon after your e-Bill is generated, you will be notified by e-mail that it is available for viewing, giving you additional time to make payments. Payments are due on the 5th of the following month. Monthly invoices are generated for current charges only. A student account may not be billed for the entire cost of the program in one cycle. We encourage parents to check their student's account to make sure all bills are paid in full.
Access Your e-Bill
- Login to your LOCUS account at: www.luc.edu/locus
- Click on Campus Finances
- Click on View e-Bill(s) to view the Student e-Bill History page
- Click on View Detail next to any of the months listed to view that month's e-Bill
Remember: Your e-Bill is a snapshot of your account on the day we generate the statement. Payments and other changes we have received since the last e-Bill will not show up until the next e-Bill is generated. The Account Summary in LOCUS is the place to find the real-time status of your account.
Parent and Guest Access
Students can set up proxy access to their financial accounts for parents and other guests with the following steps:
- Login to your LOCUS account at: www.luc.edu/locus
- Click on Personal Portfolio
- Click on Parent/Guest Access
- Click on Add Parent/Guest
- Click the 'I Accept' button on the consent form
- For each parent or guest, enter the person's last and first name, e-mail address and assign a password. (You may assign the same password to all those who receive proxy; or assign a different password for each.) The password is case-sensitive, must be 6 characters in length and include 2 digits. The university will assign each proxy with a Universal ID, which will be sent to each via the e-mail addresses you provided.
*YOU are the only person who has the password(s) for those who have Parent/Guest Access, and you will need to communicate this information to them. Make certain you let them know when you have set them up with access and provide them with their password(s).

The Loyola ID card is the university's official identification card for all Loyola students, faculty and staff. It provides access to academic buildings, campus libraries and the Halas Recreation Center.
Your Loyola ID may also be used as a pre-paid debit card, using a university meal plan or Rambler Bucks which provide students with the ability to purchase food items from any Loyola University Chicago dining location including the on-campus convenience stores (Center Stage, Connections Cafe, South Side Market, and Damen Food Court) and Water Tower Campus locations (Nina's Cafe, Lu's Old Fashioned Deli and Pub). Rambler Bucks may also be used at Water Tower and Lake Shore Campus bookstores and Copy Centers. For more information, visit the Campus Card.
If you are unable to attend the Student Campus Orientation, you may go to either card office to obtain your ID. Your first ID card is free and replacements will cost $25.

Please review the 2012 Activity Calendar to get an idea of the opportunities available this coming summer. Also good to know is that weekend activities are planned over the course of several hours, so students need to be mindful of their need for study and relaxation as the weekend comes to a close.
As you will notice there is a mixture of programs which is free and those that have an added fee attached. It is important to know that any program with an added fee has been subsidized to a fraction of its original cost.
EXPLORING ROGERS PARK
Students are required to use the "group system" (3 or more) whenever you venture off campus. We ask that you sign-out at the front desk whenever you leave indicating where you are going, the people in your group, and when you plan on returning. If you sign-out as a group, you must return in that same group (no stragglers).
During the Family Orientation, we will review the boundaries around Rogers Park in which students may freely visit with their group members. Loyola's Campus Safety officers patrol the boundaries (North to Pratt, South to Glenlake, West to Glenview) around Rogers Park daily. Should an incident arise and you need help, they are able to respond immediately.
All students are asked to abide by these boundaries which have been established for everyone’s safety. For excursions beyond the set boundaries, students will need added supervision by one or more of the program staff members and/or course instructors.
Failure to follow these guidelines may result in discipline and possible removal from the program.
