About FACHEX   

Employees of Jesuit colleges and universities seeking tuition benefits for their dependents through the FACHEX Program should contact the FACHEX Coordinator at their institution for forms and procedures. The FAFSA must be submitted to the federal processor and be received by Loyola in order to obtain FACHEX benefits at Loyola.

If the Financial Aid Office (FAO) is not aware that the student is eligible for tuition benefits through the FACHEX Program at the time the financial aid award is prepared, the award will be adjusted at the time OSFA is informed of the benefit. This could reduce or eliminate eligibility for other Loyola assistance and for federal or state financial aid. Students who are awarded a tuition-restricted merit-based scholarship, but are later awarded a FACHEX benefit, will have the scholarship reduced and it will become honorary. To be eligible for renewal, students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA while at Loyola.

Eligible faculty and staff with dependents who would like to utilize the FACHEX benefit should begin the process soon.  If your dependent is a current senior in high school and will be starting college in the Fall of 2022, learn more about the FACHEX program and complete the 2022-2023 FACHEX Application. Letters of FACHEX certification will then be sent to the selected participating schools.  Each participating school will have their own deadline for accepting letters of certification so please complete the on-line application form no later than December 1, 2021 for Fall 2022 consideration.  Questions about the FACHEX program should be directed to the FACHEX Coordinator.
