Loyola is pleased to offer both need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships to undocumented and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students.
All students are eligible to receive merit-based scholarships, and every student who completes an application for admission is automatically considered for merit scholarship funding. No separate application is required, and you will be notified of your merit scholarship at the time of admission.
Please take a moment to read additional information about merit-based scholarships.
Need-Based Financial Assistance
Undocumented and DACA students are considered for need-based financial like any other domestic student. Because federal financial aid is not available for undocumented and DACA students, Loyola provides institutional financial aid in its place.
Need-based awards are intended to supplement the amount that a student can pay in order to reach the full cost of attendance. Our need-based awards can cover up to the cost of full tuition, though these cases are extremely rare. Undocumented and DACA students will be considered for admission and institutional need-based financial assistance based upon a review of the academic qualifications, financial need, and availability of student aid resources. Loyola is unable to increase scholarship awards once they are allocated, and we are also unable to guarantee that we will meet 100% of a student’s financial need.
Scholarship and need-based awards are renewable for the same amount for up to four years (eight semesters, fall and spring) provided the student maintains full-time enrollment, meets the minimum grade point average (GPA) and Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.

All Spring Admission applicants must complete the following by November 15 in order to receive their Financial Aid decision before the December 15 deposit deadline.
