Information for Newly Admitted Students
If you received conditional admission to Loyola, we must receive all your final, official transcript(s) or other required documents as indicated in your admission letter. Registration for your second term will be blocked until you submit these documents.
Photocopies, faxes, scanned images, and opened transcripts are not considered official. Official documents must be received in an unopened envelope, sealed by the institution.
If you are unsure which documents are still required, or if you wish to confirm that your documents were received, please contact the office of Graduate & Professional Enrollment Management at firstname.lastname@example.org or 312.915.8950.
The Office of Student Financial Assistance can answer your questions about financial aid policies and procedures, as well as give you important information on completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Some graduate programs offer assistantships and fellowships on a competitive basis. Check with your graduate program director for details.

Students must show proof of required immunizations by filling out the immunization form and submitting it to the Wellness Center. Failure to submit this form will block your registration for your second term at Loyola. For more immunization information, visit the Wellness Center Website.
Newly admitted international students should visit the Office for International Programs Website for valuable information about preparing for your first term at Loyola, including details on F-1 and J-1 visas. You can also download any forms you may need, such as the Declaration and Certification of Finances Form and the Transfer Verification Form, among others.
Each school/program has a different orientation schedule for incoming students. For information about orientation, please review your specific program's information for new students or contact your department directly for more details.
All full-time students are required to have health insurance coverage. The health insurance premium is added automatically to your account balance unless you qualify for a waiver. To opt out of the Loyola plan, log on to LOCUS, then click on "Student Health Insurance" in the "Campus Finances" section. You may then waive out of the plan after providing the information for your current plan. For more information about Loyola's student health insurance policy, visit the Bursar - Health Insurance page.
Textbooks and related materials can be purchased at the University Bookstores, located in Baumhart Hall at 26 E. Pearson St. at the Water Tower Campus, and on the first floor of the Granada Center at the Lake Shore Campus. The bookstores have complete lists of required and recommended materials needed for each class.
To access the most up-to-date information on tuition and fees, billing, and payment plans, please visit the Bursar Website.
When you access LOCUS for the first time, check the current address listing in your Student Center. This is the address on file with the university and to where the university will send all mail. You can edit or update this address at any time.
Our goals to ensure the health and safety of our campus and to provide an uninterrupted and superior academic experience for students include requiring all students to be fully vaccinated from COVID-19 before starting the fall term. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the final vaccine dose. The fall term begins Friday, August 27. Therefore, to be in compliance, you must receive your final vaccine dose and upload your vaccine card to Loyola’s secure and confidential health site by August 6. You will need your UNIV ID and password to login. You should not submit a copy of your vaccine card by fax or email.
All students, including online students, are required to be vaccinated to participate in any on-campus events or programming, including the use of academic resources like the library and other on-campus services like the career center. Any online-only student without an uploaded vaccination card who will not be on campus will remain enrolled, but will have their Loyola UNIV ID deactivated, preventing them from accessing campus facilities or events if needed.
By keeping yourself healthy with a vaccine, you are helping to keep our Loyola community, neighbors, and other communities safe, too.
