Transfer Students

Big Decision. Big Easy. Why Loyola?

On our beautiful campus in historic Uptown New Orleans, you'll be inspired to push yourself in new ways -- every single day. Whether you're from a community college or a 4-year university, living on campus or commuting, no matter your age, Loyola will provide you with an education that will allow you to achieve your goals.

We're glad you're interested in transferring to Loyola. We hope you decide to join the Wolf Pack.

The credits you already have will likely transfer to most of our 85+ majors. Credit evaluations are automatically completed upon admittance. Your academic advisor will help make your schedule to ensure completion of your degree. Loyola offers articulation agreements with several colleges, making the transfer process even easier.

Loyola also offers generous financial aid packages. Ninety percent of Loyola's students receive some form of financial aid — and you're automatically considered for competitive merit and talent based scholarships just by submitting your transfer application. If you have any questions about the scholarship and financial aid process, please let us know. Loyola’s FAFSA code is 002016, and you can submit your FAFSA application before being receiving an admission decision.

If you wish to apply to Loyola as a transfer student, you will need to fill out the online Loyola Application. There is no fee to apply and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

If you've completed 15 or more hours of college-level work, please submit:

  • Transfer application and personal statement
  • Transcripts from all colleges and/or universities attended
  • A letter of recommendation
  • Standardized test scores (not required but should be submitted if available)

If you've completed less than 15 hours of college-level work, please submit:

  • Transfer application and personal statement
  • Transcripts from all colleges and/or universities attended
  • High school transcripts
  • Standardized test scores (ACT and/or SAT)
  • A letter of recommendation

Please remember to send us your FAFSA if you intend to apply for financial aid. It's not automatically submitted to Loyola when you apply as a transfer student. You need to enter Loyola's code 002106.
