Sensitive to the economic challenges facing many families today, Loyola University Chicago offers many financial aid options including scholarships, need-based grants, work-study, loans based on a family’s ability to pay, payment plans, and other financing programs. You can also choose from a variety of employment options that provide paid community service on and off campus. Students typically work 10-20 hours a week at a minimum-wage rate.

If you are interested in applying for financial aid, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1 to meet Loyola’s priority processing deadline. Learn more about applying for financial aid.

Because we live in uncertain times financially, we've developed The Loyola Guarantee, a program that assures every student the opportunity to complete a Loyola degree, even in the face of income loss and adverse financial circumstances.
