Application Deadline Extensions for Students

If you wish to apply for admission and are not able to apply by the January 15 deadline, please contact call, email, or text us. Our office will be flexible with application deadlines and related documents (transcripts/letters of recommendation) and will work with you individually to complete your application.

Application Fee Waivers

If paying the application fee would be burdensome for your family in light of current circumstances, we're happy to grant you a waiver with no need for explanation. To indicate you need a fee wavier, simply select "Fee waiver for applicants affected by recent natural disasters" in the drop down menu below the question "Do you intend to use one of these school-specific fee waivers?" on Loyola's Common Application member page. No documentation is required. Please contact us if you have any questions! 

Self-Reported Test Scores

We'll accept self-reported test scores submitted with the Common Application or by email from counselors or students who choose to submit test scores with their application. (Loyola is test-optional, and scores are not required for admission).

Support for High School Counselors 

Secondary school teachers and counselors will be granted extensions for their recommendations, transcripts, and other materials. Please email or upload materials when you are able to. Due to continuing lack of power and Wi-Fi access in many areas, application materials may also be submitted by students and counselors to:
