Eligibility for financial aid for affiliation or non-Loyola programs is limited to Federal Direct Stafford Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized), Federal Parent Loans (PLUS), Federal Pell Grants, and most forms of state grant/scholarship assistance.

If approval is granted for enrollment in an affliation or non-Loyola program, Loyola University will be considered the home institution for purposes of applying for federal student aid. Institutionally-controlled forms of financial aid including academic scholarships, athletic grants, need-based grants, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Supplemental Grants and Federal Work-Study are forfeited and may not be used to assist with educational expenses incurred for these study abroad programs. Privately-funded scholarships and grants may be used only with the written permission of the organization or donor sponsoring the award.

Students who anticipate the need for additional financial assistance should contact the administrator of the study abroad program in which they plan to participate or obtain more information on financial aid opportunities from the following resources:
