It’s time to set up your digital accounts so you can access vital information to prepare for your arrival. These are the most important platforms you’ll use on a regular basis as a student at Loyola.
- Log into the Loyola Network through our Single Sign On (SSO) portal
- Access your LORA Self-Service account
- Sign into your LOYNO Gmail account
- Access your free Microsoft 365 account
Follow this step-by-step guide to set up your accounts (we also emailed you with instructions). Contact the IT Help Desk with any technology-related questions by calling 504-865-2255 or emailing email@example.com using your Loyno email address.
Once you're logged into your Gmail account, you can change your name by following these instructions.
Want to see what's in store for your first semester? Visit your Admissions Status Portal and complete the "Academic Advising and Involvement Interest Survey."
We'll use the information you provide to create a draft schedule of classes. Once you complete the survey, a faculty member in the department you've declared as your major will work one-on-one with you to fine-tune your schedule.
You can always schedule a meeting with one of our academic advisors if you have other questions to help you prepare for success at Loyola.
We are here to help in every facet of your college experience — including how you pay for it. Our team at Student Financial Services will work one-on-one with your family to determine the best payment options for you.
You can start this process by completing the Affordability Questionnaire in your Admissions Status Portal.
Loyola and the state of Louisiana require all students to submit immunization documentation. Print the Proof of Immunization Compliance Form and have it completed and signed by your physician or treatment provider. You must also provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (including a booster shot) or submit an exemption request. All documentation should be submitted on the Loyola Public Health Portal.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions. All immunizations are due no later than January 15.
Log into your Admissions Status Portal and upload your headshot in the "Upload Materials" section. Be sure to select "ID Photo" from the dropdown menu. We will use your photo to make your Loyola ID, which you will receive when you arrive on campus. Please submit your photo by December 10 for processing.
- Photos should reflect your current appearance—no sunglasses, hats, or head coverings (unless worn for religious purposes)
- Stand in front of a plain, light colored background and use a neutral face expression with both eyes open
- Place camera directly in front you: full face and shoulder tops should be visible
- Clear, color images that are oriented upright only with a high resolution JPEG format (most cell phone cameras can provide this)
- Photos taken of your driver's license, current school ID, passport or that feature another person in them will not be accepted
