Tuition & Fees

All regular students are assessed tuition and fees on a semester basis.

These fees and the tuition pay for only about 85 percent of the actual cost of operating Loyola for one year. The other 15 percent is made up with funds raised by the annual fund program from alumni, friends, faculty, staff, foundations and corporations; revenues from university endowment and revenues from the residence halls and meal plans.

Applicants for admission to Loyola and students who need assistance in paying for their education are encouraged to apply for financial aid. Applications for financial aid are included in the application packet. Additional forms may be obtained from the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

Traditional Undergraduate students are charged a flat rate for tuition if they are enrolled as full-time students having registered for 12 to 20 credit hours. Students taking less than 12 hours are charged on a per-hour basis. Students enrolled through the Office of Professional & Continuing Studies are charged the flat full-time rate for 13 to 20 credit hours and the per-hour rate for less than 13 credit hours.  Students taking more than 20 hours are charged the flat rate, plus the per-hour rate for the hours over 20. This overload rate applies to music and honors students taking over 23 hours. There is no full-time or flat rate during the summer session.

Because of the uncertainty of the economy and budgetary projections, Loyola University reserves the right to change tuition, fees, or other charges printed herein. The rates listed below are for 2013 – 14.
