Entrance Counseling

If this is the first time you are borrowing a federal loan at Loyola, such as a Federal Direct Stafford Loan or Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, you must complete an entrance loan counseling session before you can receive any loan funds. 

You can complete entrance counseling online following one of the links below. You will be asked to enter the Loyola University Chicago school code, which is 001710. Upon completion, Loyola is electronically notified.

For students with Nursing Student Loan: You will do the entrance counseling at the same time you sign the online promissory note for your loan.

 For more information about loan counseling, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 773.508.7704 or lufinaid@luc.edu.
