Re-Admit Students

Welcome Back to The 'Pack!

Life can be an unpredicable journey. Whatever your reason for leaving, we can't wait to welcome you back to Loyola. The process is simple, so let's reconnect so you can pick up where we left off.

Determine Whether You are a Re-Admit

You will need to apply for undergraduate re-admission if you:

  • Are a previously enrolled degree-seeking student that withdrew from Loyola or withdrew and transferred to another college or university.
  • Have not been enrolled at Loyola University New Orleans for 12 consecutive months after the semester last attended.
    • Example: You last attended Loyola in the spring 2019 semester and did not enroll by the spring 2020 semester
  • Have been previously placed on Academic Suspension or Disciplinary Suspension with a cumulative Loyola GPA below 2.0.
  • Earned your first degree at Loyola and would like to return to a second degree. Second degree seeking students cannot apply to earn a degree that is the same as their first without permission from their college.

You do not have to apply for re-admission if:

  • You took an official leave of absence, through the Office of Student Records.
  • You left Loyola on a medical withdrawal, return to Loyola within a year, and have a GPA above a 2.0 or higher. You will qualify for re-entry via a retroactive leave of absence through the Office of Student Records.
  • You wish to return within 2 academic terms (a full year) of when you were previously enrolled and left Loyola in good academic standing (a GPA of 2.0 or higher). You will qualify for re-entry via a retroactive leave of absence through the office of Student Records.

You are NOT considered a re-admit if you have been admitted to Loyola but did not attend, or dropped early enough in the semester that your transcipt does not show course titles or grades including W's

Note: All re-admit students are former degree-seeking undergraduate students of Loyola University New Orleans. If you have never been an undergraduate student seeking a gree (visiting or early scholar), you will not be considered a re-admit student. You should apply for undergraduate admission as a new student instead. If you are applying as a post-baccalaureate or graduate student, please visit the Graduate Admissions Website.

Applying for Re-Admission

  1. Complete the Loyola re-admit application. If you were previously enrolled at Loyola any time before 2015, you will have to create an account as a first-time user.
  2. Submit an official transcript from each institution you have attended since leaving Loyola University New Orleans. Transcripts can be sent electronically to admit@loyno.edu or mailed to: Loyola University New Orleans, 6363 St. Charles Ave., Admissions Box 18, New Orleans, LA 70118

Applying for Re-Admission on Academic Suspension

If you left Loyola with a cumulative GPA below 2.0, you must:

  1. Complete the Loyola re-admit application. If you were previously enrolled at Loyola any time before 2015, you will have to create an account as a first-time user.
  2. Submit an official transcript from each institution you have attended since leaving Loyola University New Orleans. Transcripts can be sent electronically to admit@loyno.edu or mailed to: Loyola University New Orleans, 6363 St. Charles Ave., Admissions Box 18, New Orleans, LA 70118
  3. Complete the Re-Admit Interview.

Once the application is submitted, you will be contacted about conducting a Re-Admit Interview with the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee is comprised of a representative from the Office of Admissions, the Director of Financial Aid and the Associate Dean of the College of your major when you left Loyola.

The interview can be conducted either in person on campus, via conference phone call or via an online questionnaire. The interview is a chance for you to plead your case to the Committee about your desire to return to Loyola, explain what you have been doing since you were last enrolled, and reveal your plan to do differently if you are allowed to return. In addition to pleading your case, you will have the opportunity to as questions regarding your status with the university as it pertains to academics and financial aid.

Re-Applying for Summer

  • If you want to return to Loyola for the summer, you need to re-apply for the fall term. If you are admitted for fall, you can state in the summer by notifying Admissions of your desire to enroll in the first or second summer session.
  • Any approved fall re-admit applications will have the opportunity to register for first and/or second summer sessions

Financial Holds

No application will be considered for any student with an outstanding financial balance owed to Loyola, or who has an active registration hold on his/her/their record. Once your application is submitted, you will be notified if there is a hold on your account. It is then up to the applicant to see that the hold is lifted and also that the Office of Admissions is notified that the hold is lifted so that the application can be reviewed for admission. NO decision will be made on holds that have not been removed by the start of the semester.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

A student's scholarship and financial status at the time the student withdrew, or was withdrawn from the university, remains in effect at the time of applying for re-admission. Re-admission to the university is distinct and separate from financial aid eligibility and review. If you are applying for re-admission and want to be considered for financial aid, it is important that you have an updated FASFA that is submitted to Loyola. If admitted, students will be notified of any additional steps to qualify for financial aid (such as submitted an appeal for financial aid).
