Financial Aid + Scholarships

Recognizing the special financial needs of working students, Loyola has attempted to maintain a reasonable tuition at a level significantly lower than comparable day programs. This practice, in itself a form of financial assistance, does not preclude students from seeking assistance through the traditional financial aid programs. Financial aid is available to all eligible persons. Students who think they may be eligible must fill out the Financial Aid Form. Monthly tuition payment plans are also available. For further information call the Financial Aid Office at (504) 865-3231. Students who participate in an employer-sponsored tuition reimbursement program may apply to defer up to 90% of their tuition and fees until the end of the semester. Contact the Loyola’s Office of Professional & Continuing Studies at (504) 865-3530 for details. Find out more about Financial Aid »
