Welcome to the Loyola community! As the parent or guardian of an admitted student, we think it’s just as important to keep you informed and up-to-date as it is your student.
When your son/daughter submitted his/her application for admission, he/she was also applying to be considered for our merit-based scholarships, ranging from $7,500 to full tuition for academically qualified students. In addition to merit-based scholarships, we offer grants, loans, work-study, and other alternative financing programs. To give you an idea, 95% of our 2011 freshman class received financial assistance and the average award was $23,400. Visit our Financial Aid web site for tuition and fees, additional scholarship options, financial aid basics, next steps, and more. Also be sure to check out our Net Price Calculator if your student is a new student. This in an extremely helpful tool that will help you project estimated cost of their Loyola Experience.
It’s a great time to be joining the Loyola family. We’re currently in the midst of a five-phase renovation campaign, reimagine. Expected to be completed in 2015, reimagine will benefit the entire Loyola community. Many of the new facilities serve to specifically enhance the student experience, and Loyola’s continual improvement not only builds pride in our University, but also raises the profile of the school and the value of your student’s Loyola degree. Come see for yourself—arrange a campus visit and/or join us for Loyola Weekend on March 24-25, 2012, a weekend dedicated to our incoming freshmen and their families.
We encourage all of our admitted students’ parents or guardians to get involved in the Loyola community. One of the best (and easiest) ways to do this is through our Parents Facebook page. Here, you can connect with parents of current and future Loyola students to share information, ask questions, or just meet other parents. We also have a Loyola University Chicago Parents Association (LUCPA).
For additional information, visit our Parents web page, watch our “Extraordinary Families” video and others, or check out Loyola at a Glance. Or, feel free to contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office directly.
