What it takes to join the Wolf Pack
Everything begins when you apply. For current high school students who haven't taken any college courses, it's an easy three-step process.
- Review admission standards
- Take the SAT and/or ACT and send all scores
- Pay attention to admission deadlines
- Research majors
- Review AP, IB and other credit guides
Students who complete the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program are eligible to receive up to 30 credits at Loyola University New Orleans, which is equivalent to one full year of study, or sophomore status.
- Review College of Music and Media admissions requirements
- Write your essay
- Loyola offers two applications options: (1) through the Common Application of (2) through the Loyola Application—there's no difference between the two, it's what you prefer
- If you're applying for a major within the College of Music and Media (all music, theatre, design, visual arts, music industry studies and digital film) you must apply through the Loyola Application
- Apply for Online Programs
3. After you Apply
- Check your application status
- Make sure all of your test scores have been submitted; if you're planning to take a test after you submit your application, let your admissions counselor know
- Send your high school transcript; if you attended more than one high school, be sure that we get a transcript from each school
- Request your letters of recommendation
- Keep in touch with your admission counselor and let them know about changes in your academic profile
