Graduate Programs

Furthering your education is an investment in you and your future. We’ve provided you with some information and resources to help you manage the process.

We encourage all students eligible for U.S. federal financial assistance to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The earliest you can submit the FAFSA is October 1st in the year prior to when you’ll receive aid. Loyola’s code is 001710. After the Student Award Report is confirmed, Loyola sends you verification, which outlines the amount of aid awarded to you, based on your Expected Family Contribution. The award may include federal loans, grants, scholarships, and work study.

Loans

Loans can come from federal loan programs, alternative loan programs, or both. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to determine the amount of loans available to you. Federal loans have lower interest rates and repayment options, but private and alternative loans are another option.
