Achieving College Excellence


Achieving College Excellence (ACE) Application Update: 


Incoming, First-Year Students:

We have received an overwhelming number of applications from incoming new students, so we are no longer able to accept applications from incoming first-year students. 

If you are an incoming first-year student who already applied, you should have received an e-mail from us about your status, so if you have any questions, please e-mail us at ace@luc.edu.


Returning Students:

If you are a returning student (ie: have previously enrolled in classes at Loyola University Chicago) and are interested in ACE, we will open our enrollment process on October 1, 2014.  On that day, the ACE Application will be available online.  Completed applications (including parent signature, if appropriate) will be due October 17, 2014.

We encourage applications from students who are the first in their family to attend a four-year college, who have high financial need, or who have a disability.  We are here to help you succeed while at Loyola University Chicago and beyond, but the first step is for you to complete and submit an application. 

If you have any questions about if you are eligible for ACE Program services, please review our eligibility page.
