International Applicants

Loyola is home to students from all over the world and 30+ countries are represented at the undergraduate level. In the same way studying abroad gives students a new perspective and new opportunities, your presence on the Evergreen campus as an international student brings a new global perspective to our campus and exposes our community to new ways of thinking. We are pleased to offer both need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships to international students.

A student is considered and must apply as an international applicant if he/she is not a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident (green card holder). U.S. citizens and permanent residents residing abroad are not required to apply as international applicants but their applications will be reviewed by the international admission staff.
