Loyola University Chicago


Achieving College Excellence


Achieving College Excellence (ACE) Application: 

The ACE Application is available here: 2017-2018 ACE Application.  

We are currently accepting applications from currently enrolled LUC students.   Applications will still be accepted on a rolling basis.  

You can submit your application via email to us at ace@luc.edu

We encourage applications from students whose parents did not graduate from 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. 

ACE acceptance decisions are made based on ensuring students meet the requirements set by the grant for eligibility for our program (if you have any questions about if you are eligible for ACE Program services, please review our eligibility page), as well as based on availability.  Our grant places a limit on how many students we can serve at one time, so if our program is full, we may not be able to accept you right away; if this is the case, we will notify you via email, provide you a comprehensive list of other resources on campus that can assist you, and you will be encouraged to re-apply in a future semester, when we may have had students graduate and open up a space in our program.


If you are interested in ACE or have any questions about the application, please e-mail us at ace@luc.edu.
