International Freshman Applicants

International freshman applicants to Loyola must submit the following information:

  1. Online application
  2. Submit official secondary/high school transcripts. You are not required to submit a credential evaluation up front, but this may be requested at a later date at our counselors' discretion. Freshman applicants would then be requested to obtain a General Evaluation from Educational Perspectives.
  3. If you are a U.S. citizen (or dual U.S. citizen), you are required to submit either the SAT or ACT, regardless of the country you are currently living in. The TOEFL or IELTS is not required, though you may send it in as well if you would like to.

    If you are an international student and need a visa in order to study in the U.S., you are required to submit one of the following: SAT, ACT, TOEFL or IELTS. (You may also submit more than one type of test if you so desire). For scholarship consideration, the SAT or ACT must be submitted.
  4. Personal essay
  5. Counselor/teacher recommendation
  6. Declaration and Certification of Finances form‌, including supporting financial documents

*Students who do not meet the requirements for unconditional admission may be considered for the International Conditional Admission Program (ICAP).

**Incoming students may be required to take placement exams in math, English, and/or writing. The results are used to place students in the courses appropriate to their level of preparation. In some cases this may include a non-credit ESL class or introductory math class.
