Loyola University Chicago

Financial Aid Office


Loyola University is dedicated to providing valuable financial aid information to those students seeking to enroll in college.  As the fall approaches, many high school seniors begin researching and applying for colleges. This can be an overwhelming process for students, especially when it comes to finances and financial aid.

Our office is available to assist in educating local students in the financial aid process.  We offer a variety of presentations and are also willing to partner with you in designing presentations that meet the specific needs of your students and community.  Tammy Patterson and Janelle Wade can work with you to tailor a presentation that fits your needs.
