Apply With the Common Application
Accommodations for those affected by the California wildfires
The thoughts and prayers of the Loyola community are with all students and educators in areas affected by the devastation of the recent California wildfires. Please visit our website for a list of accommodations for the application process. We hope it will serve as a valuable resource for those students navigating through their college search during this difficult time.
Loyola is one of the members schools of the Common Application, which provides specific information that we use to review and learn more about applicants.
Our Jesuit tradition of scholarship is based on the concept of cura personalis—care of the whole person. This approach applies even before you apply. When we review applications, we steer away from the typical test- score-heavy evaluation processes. We accept students based not only on their academic merit, but all other aspects of their preparation to handle what will be asked of them once enrolled at Loyola. That may be extracurricular activities, service, spiritual endeavors, leadership roles, or something totally unique to them. This interest in the whole student is why we’ve adopted a test-optional admission policy.
