Your First To-Do’s 

If you haven’t already, be sure to log into your Admissions Status Portal to complete some important action items. Don’t worry—you will get plenty of advance notice about anything you need to complete before your arrival. You won’t need to make any travel plans aside from preparing for your move-in day, which we will share very soon. Here are a few of the most important items you can knock off your to-do list now. 

Get Connected  

Be sure you set up your Loyola email and access the Loyola network, known as the Single Sign On (SSO) Portal. Follow these step-by-step instructions to access your Loyola accounts, including instructions for free access to Microsoft Office 365. Contact the IT Help Desk with any technology-related questions by calling 504-865-2255 or emailing using your Loyno email address.  

Pro Tip: If you’re shopping for computers or other digital subscriptions, don’t forget to look for special discounts just for college students! Many options require a “.edu” email address, so it’s important to set up your Loyno email first.

Submit Your Housing Application by December 1

Check your email for instructions to complete your housing application through The Housing Director. You can access The Housing Director by logging in through your Single Sign On Portal. Completing your application on time will help give us important information to plan for your arrival. Reach out to Residential Life directly with any questions. 

Submit Your ID Photo 

Log into your Admissions Status Portal and upload your headshot in the "Upload Materials" section. Be sure to select "ID Photo" from the dropdown menu. Make sure your photo clearly shows your face and has a vertical orientation. We will use your photo to make your Loyola ID, which you can pick up from LUPD when you arrive in January. Submit your photo by December 10. 

Complete Your Affordability Questionnaire

Get started with financial planning now by completing the Affordability Questionnaire in your Admissions Status Portal. The information you provide will help our Student Financial Services team provide one-on-one support to connect you with the best payment options for your family. For additional questions and support, schedule an appointment with one of our Student Account Counselors.
