Apply for Financial Aid
Accessing financial aid begins by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. Be sure to use Loyola's School Code 001710.
The 2024-2025 FAFSA will be available in December 2023. The exact date has not yet been released by the Department of Education. We will continue to update this webpage as we receive more information from the Department of Education.
In 2020, the FAFSA Simplification Act was enacted into law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. The FAFSA Simplification Act represents a significant overhaul of federal student aid, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, need analysis, and many policies and procedures for schools that participate in the Title IV programs. The changes will provide:
- a more streamlined application process,
- expanded eligibility for federal financial aid,
- reduced barriers for certain student populations, and
- a better user experience for the FAFSA form.LEARN MORE
