Application Procedures for International Students

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.

Merit-Based Scholarships

All applicants (domestic and international) are automatically considered for Loyola University merit scholarships. The Committee on Scholarships determines awards based on the application for admission, and these scholarships are given to students who display outstanding academic credentials. For more information view our Merit Scholarships page.

Need-Based Financial Assistance

Loyola University is able to provide a limited amount of need-based aid to international students (non-US citizens). 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.

International 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. In some cases, especially for students with high financial need, we are unable to make an offer of admission if our funding will be insufficient. Loyola University 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, and there is no change in immigration status.

How to Apply

Please note that there are two different financial forms that are required depending upon whether you are seeking need-based financial aid.

Students seeking consideration for need-based financial assistance are required to submit at the time of application:

  • CSS Profile – Students requesting need-based financial assistance are required to submit the CSS Profile and the International Student Certification of Finances at the time they apply for admission. When completing the CSS Profile, Loyola University Maryland's CSS School Code Number is 5370.
  • Current bank statements (dated within three months of submission).

Students not seeking need-based financial assistance are required to submit at the time of application:

Both forms can be filled out and emailed to intladmission@loyola.edu at the time of application. Please be aware that we may ask for further financial documentation per U.S. government regulations at a later date should you be admitted and choose to enroll. International students seeking additional financial assistance are also encouraged to contact local or international agencies in their home country.
