Loyola University Chicago


Achieving College Excellence


The ACE Application is available here: 2018-2019 ACE Application 

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.

The PRIORITY DEADLINE for the application is Friday, June 1, 2018. You can either return the completed application via email to ace@luc.edu or you can deliver it in person Monday-Friday between the hours of 9am-5pm to the ACE staff offices, located on the 2nd floor of the Sullivan Center.  You may also print the application, handwrite your answers, and scan to ace@luc.edu.  

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