Loyola University Chicago offers students the option of deferring their expenses through an Employer Reimbursement Plan (ERP).

The Employer Reimbursement Plan is designed to enable all graduate and professional students who are eligible for tuition reimbursement from their employer to defer payment of those tuition and fees covered under their employer agreement. This plan is offered during the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer terms. A student may only apply for the current term. The application fee is $120 per term. All non-deferred tuition and fees must be paid at the time of application.

For example, if your employer will pay ninety percent of tuition and fees, that is the amount of tuition and fees deferred by the Bursar's Office through the ERP. The remaining ten percent, along with the $120 application fee, will be due upon application.

Students on the ERP may only take out loans to cover the amount the employer does not pay. Loans are posted directly to the student account to cover the tuition cost first. Therefore, the amount of the loan should not exceed the amount of the tuition and fees. For example, if your employer pays 80% of tuition, the loans should only cover 20% to cover the amount your employer does not pay. Students with loans for amounts greater than the remaining amount will not be accepted as eligible for the ERP.

To apply for the ERP, please submit a copy of the employer's reimbursement plan form, the application fee, and cash or check for the remaining non-reimbursable tuition and fees to either Office of the Bursar location.

A 529 Plan is an education savings plan operated by a state or educational institution designed to help families set aside funds for future college costs. Click here for instructions on how to use 529 plan funds.

Sponsored students receive tuition assistance through a third party. This is an outside source that agrees to pay the University for all or part of a student's financial account charges. Some sponsors also cover mandatory fees. The sponsor agrees to be billed directly with payment due upon receipt of invoice.
