Federal Aid

All U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to file the FreeApplication for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Applying early for financial assistance is the key to unlocking the resources you may need, because the more time we have to work together, the greater our chances of finding the perfect combination of financial resources for you.

File online: Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)


We recommend you file the FAFSA online. Not only is filing online faster, but many errors are revealed and highlighted for correction before your FAFSA is even submitted, which leads to easier processing and reduced need to submit additional documentation. 

Be sure to use Loyola’s federal school code: 001710.

Loyola's priority filing date is March 1. Filing by March 1 will allow you to receive financial aid award information before the May 1 Admission Deposit Date.
