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.

Credit Evaluation

The credits you already have will likely transfer to most of our 60+ majors. Credit evaluations are automatically completed upon admittance. We accept courses with a grade of C or higher from any accredited two-year or four-year institution. 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.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Loyola New Orleans is piloting our test-blind policy for new students entering the Fall of 2021 and will no longer require the SAT and/or ACT for admissions consideration. An announcement will be made at a future date concerning students entering Fall 2022 and beyond. For more information on this, please review our Test Blind FAQs.

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. 

*Official transcripts can be sent directly from your University and/or High School by email (admit@loyno.edu) or by mail:

Scholarships and Financial Aid

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.
