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.
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.
