ACE Summer Schedule

The ACE Staff are available during standard business hours over the summer. If you plan to come to campus, we encourage you to contact us in advance to confirm that we won't happen to be out on vacation the particular day you visit. Tutoring is available over the summer, with sign-up's on WCOnline as usual. Areas where we tend to get summer questions include: scholarship appeals, reviewing academic plans, resume and cover letter assistance, and class registration, but ACE Scholars can contact us about any concern relating to your college experience.

ACE Scholar Recognition Banquet Photos

Photos are posted from the ACE Scholar Recognition Banquet held in April 2015! This is our pinnacle event of the year in which we highlight our graduating seniors, who have their family join them at the event since our students are often the first in their family to complete a Baccalaureate Degree. It's a time of great celebration and honoring the growth and achievements of all our students!  

Activities Grant to Help Students

The Office of First Year Experience will be offering funds for students to use towards Loyola hosted events, such as intramural league fees, Rambler Outdoors activities, Loyola 360 retreats, and much more. After reviewing your eligibility based on your responses to the form, students may be asked to write a 1 page essay. Financial need will be based on reviewing your FAFSA.  

ACE students joined in and learned! TRiO Day - 2015

Saturday, February 21 was National TRiO Day, so ACE scholars traveled to a conference at Northern Illinois University to celebrate. The group learned a lot about the history and importance of TRiO while listening to inspiring stories from TRiO staff, students, and alumni, all of whom attributed their success to the support they received in TRiO programs. ACE Scholars also attended an informative graduate school preparation workshop and brainstormed ideas for becoming more involved with high school TRiO students near Loyola University Chicago. Just as importantly, the scholars and staff grew closer to one another and had fun!

Taking the GRE sometime soon?

Half off the cost of the GRE - here's how!

Many ACE Scholars are eligible for 50% off the cost of one GRE Test Registration (one General GRE Test and/or one Subject Test). For details, please read about the process here (links to Financial Aid's GRE Fee Reduction Program site). Please note, Financial Aid does not set the guidelines for this waiver, so if you aren't eligible, there are no appeal options. Also, expect the waiver processing to take some time, so you should start the process well in advance!
