When students apply to Loyola University Maryland for an affiliation, the Loyola application is merely a screening process. You still need to receive official acceptance from the affiliate or non-Loyola program.
Affiliations are connections that Loyola has with other university programs. Students have the benefit of attending an established program while having their grades and credits transfer to Loyola. Certain federal and state aid can be used to study abroad with affiliations. However, institutionally controlled aid (e.g. presidential scholarships, athletic scholarships) cannot be used on an affiliate program. Applications by Dec. 1, or the fall or spring semester.
