Let's get started — again.
Ready for round two? Loyola University New Orleans welcomes students that have already earned an undergraduate degree but would like to return to school to earn a second undergraduate degree in a different area. Please review the options below to determine which application you should complete for admission.
If you are a Loyola graduate and would like to earn a second undergraduate degree from Loyola, complete the Loyola application as a re-admit student.
If you did not previously attend Loyola and earned your undergraduate degree elsewhere,
complete the Loyola application as a transfer student
Students must submit transcripts from all previous institutions attended. We require students to be in good standing with their previous institution and have an overall GPA of a 2.5 or better.
In lieu of the traditional writing sample, please include a “statement of intentions and goals” outlining your rationale for earning a second degree and what you hope to gain from your education at Loyola. Please note: applicants that are interested in earning a second degree that is the same type of degree as their first one [e.g. you have a Bachelor of Arts and would like to earn a second one] must address this special circumstance in your personal statement.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
Students seeking a second undergraduate degree are not eligible for institutional merit- based scholarships. Applicants should submit the FAFSA and consult with the Office of Financial Aid to determine their eligibility for need-based aid.
