Student I received a HEERF Student Share grant award, but why was the amount I received was less than the amount I requested on my application? (07/13/20)
As students submitted their HEERF Student Share applications, we became informed of the types and amount of expenses generally incurred related to the disruption of campus operations. Amounts you requested in certain expense categories may have been reduced to reflect a more equitable distribution of available funds, as well as compliance with the government’s guidelines on eligible expenses.
We truly empathize with the hardships our students and families are experiencing as a result of this pandemic. While the HEERF Student Share Grant funds you received were less than the amount you requested, we want you to know that Loyola has a variety of programs to support you during this time. These programs include the Center for Student Assistance and Advocacy, the Loyola Commitment, and other financial aid assistance. We encourage you to learn more about this valuable assistance at LUC.edu/coronavirus/valuableassistance.

Faculty & Staff What is Loyola’s paid sick time policy? (06/26/20)
Please note: To ensure the greatest degree of flexibility, staff may now use any of their paid time off accruals, including personal/family friendly days, sick, and vacation time during the coronavirus period for pay continuity with manger/supervisor approval.
Loyola University Chicago staff employees will be temporarily eligible to access COVID-19 Days once all Paid Time Off (PTO) accruals are exhausted. This includes personal/family friendly days, sick, and vacation accruals with your manger/supervisor approval. COVID-19 pay is a temporary emergency measure granted to assist employees during the pandemic period.
Faculty & Staff If I am out of paid time off and I am sick, what are my options? (06/26/20)
Faculty & Staff What Is working remotely (telecommuting) and how does it differ from other forms of work? (06/26/20)
Employees should work remotely if required to self-isolate and where working remotely is possible. All other employees should see their manager/supervisor.
Employees are expected to self-quarantine at home, away from Loyola, including the University’s residence halls and workplace for at least 14 days if you have traveled to/from/through, come into contact with, or live with someone who has recently traveled to a Level 3 or above country. This includes if you have been exposed to another person who has been exposed to the coronavirus. If you suspect that you meet these criteria, please contact your manager and Human Resources immediately for assistance via benefits@LUC.edu or 312.915.6175.
Remote work arrangements may also be used, as feasible, to support employees who fall into high-risk health categories as outlined by the CDC, and employees who may need to attend to child/senior care needs.

Student How will health and safety precautions impact classroom space in fall 2020? (06/10/20)
In the last several weeks, the Loyola planning team has scoured our campuses to identify new spaces that can be used for on-campus instruction this year. Thus, many classes this fall will be held in spaces that have never been used as classrooms, including the Sister Jean Multipurpose Room, Norville Center rooms, and the Damen Den, among others. But even with these additional new spaces for classrooms, our total usable classroom capacity will be approximately 1/3 of normal. Because of this, it is simply not possible to hold every one of our 3,600 scheduled sections in a classroom this semester, and students may have to take some of their classes online.
Student What is the new course time grid for fall 2020? (06/10/20)
The new class grid is as follows:
MWF Day – 7 slots
TTh Day – 5 slots
MTWThF Evenings – 1 slot
Student What is the Loyola Commitment? (06/01/20)
For more information on the Loyola Commitment, please visit LUC.edu/LoyolaCommitment.
Student Who can apply to the Loyola Commitment? (06/01/20)
Student How do I apply for the Loyola Commitment? (06/01/20)
Student What student expenses are covered under the Loyola Commitment? (06/01/20)
Student Is the Loyola Commitment the same financial assistance program as the CARES Act and HEERF grants? (06/01/20)
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was enacted by the U.S. government and includes a Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). Under the CARES Act, a portion of HEERF funds must go directly to eligible students in the form of emergency financial aid grants for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Student Am I eligible for the HEERF Student Share Grant Funds? (06/01/20)
The Department of Education has outlined a number of eligibility criteria for the HEERF Student Share Grants, including the requirement that students must be Title IV eligible. Completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) provides information to evaluate this eligibility requirement. If you did not file a FAFSA for the 2019-2020 Aid Year, you can do so at www.studentaid.gov. Once Financial Aid certifies you have a valid FAFSA, you can submit your HEERF Grant application.
To view Loyola’s HEERF policy, which includes additional information on eligibility, please visit LUC.edu/heerf.
Student What expenses are eligible under the HEERF Student Share Grant Fund? (06/01/20)
Student How is Loyola prioritizing distribution of the HEERF student grants? (06/01/20)
Student When will HEERF student grant payments be made? (06/01/20)
Student What other measures is Loyola taking to help students complete their degrees beyond providing financial assistance? (06/01/20)
In some cases, a student who is not on track to graduate on time and is facing financial difficulties may need to make the difficult decision to step out of Loyola University Chicago and attend another college or university. Students in this situation are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor to discuss what courses can be taken elsewhere that will transfer back to Loyola Chicago. Upon returning to Loyola, approved students will have their merit award reinstated and be eligible to apply for institutional support. Students must work with their academic advisor in these specific cases.
In some circumstances, we understand it is not possible to continue pursuing an education full-time. If circumstances require a student to drop below full-time status to reduce your expenses, your merit award and Loyola Grant will be prorated to the part-time rate and will be honored for an additional year (nineth and tenth semesters of enrollment). These students will also be allowed to remain in their Loyola residence hall if that is where they currently reside.
Student What resources are available to students who have a financial need not covered by aid provided through The Loyola Commitment or HEERF Student Share Grant Funds? (06/01/20)
Under the Office of the Dean of Students, the CSAA provides support, coordination, case management, and resource referrals for student concerns across the University. Students can visit the CSAA website for existing resources on financial wellness and food/housing security, or contact the CSAA directly with specific student concerns.

Student Will summer courses be offered as Pass/No Pass? (05/12/20)

Faculty & Staff What have we learned during temporary transition to online classes that might carry forward with us when the virus lifts and need for physical distance recedes? (04/27/20)
Faculty & Staff How is the financial health of the university? (04/27/20)
As you can imagine, lower student enrollment will have a direct impact on our overall budget and our ability to sustain certain operations and activities. We are fortunate to have had strong fiscal stewardship going into the crisis; however, a reduction in revenue will require adjustments to be made to enable our ability to continue to fulfill our commitment to our students and their academic development and to provide for our faculty and staff.
Faculty & Staff The Higher Ed community, including AJCU schools, are making difficult and bold decisions about staffing, including furloughs, eliminating merit increases, work force reductions, and other cost cutting measures involving staff. How and when will Loyola begin to make these decisions? (04/27/20)
As part of the Emergency Management Response effort stood up in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, we have about 230 employees who are actively assessing the current public health environment against academic, operational, and financial metrics, and projecting our future state as an institution based on forecasted assumptions. The primary decision-making factors will be the timing of the return to campus and our student enrollment.
As we continue to monitor daily the external climate, we have made every effort to provide employment continuity for our faculty and staff during this period. While we have done well so far, there are tough times ahead for our country and our institution. For Loyola, this might mean that we may not be able to sustain indefinitely the kind of across the board continuity we started with at the beginning of this pandemic. However, we’re doing everything in our power to reduce costs and find ways to increase enrollment and retention and to generate revenue.
Faculty & Staff How will decisions about employment be communicated to those impacted, as well as to the Loyola community? (04/27/20)
Faculty & Staff As income and savings become every day conversations in the wake of COVID-19 with layoffs and unemployment rates skyrocketing, how is Loyola remaining a competitive option for students seeking higher education as well as staying competitive in the work place for top tier staff and faculty? (04/27/20)
It is hard to place a dollar value on the enormous benefit a Jesuit, Catholic education delivers to society. The type of education we deliver is more relevant than ever when you look at this unfolding crisis. Our University community seeks God in all things and works to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith. We keep all of those impacted by COVID-19 in our thoughts and prayers. We feel for our students and believe that all of the actions we have taken will help us emerge from this current crisis and continue forward as strong as possible.
Faculty & Staff How is the University supporting staff members who lack access to reliable computers and internet, space to work at home, child care, and basic food/medical supplies? (04/27/20)
For those scenarios where working remotely wasn’t an option or personal obligations prevented you from carrying out your job duties, every effort has been made for pay continuation through use of paid-time-off paid and the COVID-19 emergency pay which has been provided. We will continue to assess the COVID-19 pay each pay period to identify those employees in need of additional support.
Loyola provides a very comprehensive and competitive health and welfare benefit program. We are proud to be able to provide medical, dental, and vision care to all benefit eligible employees, especially during this challenging health care crisis. Our medical insurance providers, Aetna and CVS/Caremark, have both been very good partners toward supporting the needs of our faculty and staff. The recent communication from HR outlined additional benefit coverages available under the CARES Act, and I strongly encourage you to revisit that communication and also to visit the HR website for additional employee benefits related information.
Faculty & Staff When we return to campus, would Loyola consider having 100 percent work-from-home days every Friday, or for periods during the summer? (04/27/20)
Faculty & Staff Will Loyola consider creating a more flexible work policy after employees return to campus, such as an “efficient workplace policy” (efficiency valued over working long hours and weekends; perhaps implementing 34 hours as full-time) or increasing hours/flex schedule/time off/work life balance benefits? (04/27/20)
Our efforts should be to ensure availability and serviceability. Reduced work schedules resulting from limited work requires an analysis around the number of positions truly needed to perform various roles. This crisis might create an opportunity for that analysis to take place. The reality is that in an effort to maintain our viability and competitiveness, we will most likely be looking at doing more with fewer employees versus reducing productivity at this time. Loyola is committed to exploring and providing competitive benefits to support the needs of our faculty and staff.
We currently have a very generous paid-time off program for staff to use toward illness, disability, bridging holidays, addressing family commitments, as well as for simple rest and relaxation. Under the leadership of Human Resources, the Benefits Advisory Committee will play a role in identifying additional innovative benefit options for our employees on go forward basis.
Faculty & Staff In lieu of COVID-19 crisis, will a retirement package be offered again? (04/27/20)
Student What was the reasoning behind Loyola’s decision to allow workers to use their sick pay shifts as way to get paid by the university? (04/27/20)
Student How does the University respond to some students claiming that this option doesn’t go far enough to help student workers who rely on their paychecks to bill their cost of living bills? (04/27/20)
In addition students may be eligible to receive emergency grants under the Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEERF) funds under the CARES Act to offset expenses related to disruption of campus operations due to the COVID-19 crisis
Student Does Loyola have any idea the number of awards that will be given out? Or when students who qualify could expect to receive them? (04/27/20)
Student Will the Information Commons and campus libraries still be open and available to students? (04/22/20)
Even though all library buildings at the Lake Shore, Water Tower, and Health Sciences campuses are physically closed, the library services continue to be available online at libraries.luc.edu/continuity. For additional help, contact our librarians at libraries.luc.edu/ask.

General Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on employment opportunities, what are Loyola’s thoughts on requests for it to compensate Aramark employees who have worked on the University's premises? (04/05/20)
General Can Loyola do anything to lessen the financial hardships of contract hospitality employees during this economic downturn? (04/05/20)
It is at a time like this that we focus our limited resources to support employees–both faculty and staff–until we are able to resume routine campus operations. We must also anticipate the financial needs of returning students whose families are impacted. These areas are of highest concern and priority for Loyola. These are tough times requiring tough decisions on many issues. Loyola will be guided by our mission and values as we continue to make decisions that are in the best interests of our students, faculty, and staff so that we can emerge from this current crisis and continue forward as strong as possible.

Alternatively, faculty can make the decision that work already completed by students satisfies the requirements for credit. Faculty should be flexible in their expectations and give high priority to seniors completing their degree requirements in the Spring 2020 semester.

Student Does the money for the paychecks of Federal Work Study students come from the federal government or does from the universities internal funds or somewhere else? If the money comes from the federal government, how often does Loyola receive the funds to pay Federal Work Study students? (04/27/00)
Federal Work Study is a program of the federal government allocating funds to colleges and universities. For Loyola University Chicago, federal funds generally subsidize 60 percent of students' wages and Loyola funds the remaining portion. The FWS payroll is paid to the students by Loyola and then the federal portion is reimbursed to Loyola by the federal government twice a month.
