Accommodations for Students and School Counselors Affected by Recent Hurricanes

The Loyola community extends our sympathy and support to the students and school counselors affected by the recent hurricanes. We understand that your attention and energy are likely focused on matters other than the college application process right now, and we are here to support you. 

As you begin to consider your options, please know that our admission team is available to provide any guidance or accommodation needed. We certainly understand that there is much to consider and it is our goal to provide you with the assistance and resources needed to complete the admission process.

You can also apply for Regular Decision admission by Jan. 15.

To use your Greyhound Fee Waiver, simply go to Loyola’s Questions section on the My Colleges tab of the Common Application and select "Greyhound Fee Waiver." No documentation is required.

Self-Reported Test Scores

Self-reported scores can be submitted by entering scores in the testing section of the Common Application, sending scanned copies of score reports via email to, or uploading scanned copies of score reports to the Applicant Status Portal. 

Support for High School Counselors
