How to Apply
Complete the 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Complete the FAFSA online. You and your parent must have a FSA ID to electronically sign the FAFSA. Loyola University's FAFSA Code Number is 002078.
The best way to provide accurate income information on the FAFSA is by opting to use the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). This process allows eligible applicants and parents to automatically transfer 2021 tax return information from the IRS to your FAFSA. It assures accuracy, saves time, and minimizes processing delays. DRT also significantly reduces the chances of your FAFSA being selected for verification by the Department of Education (ED) or Loyola. Students will be notified by both ED and the financial aid office if/when we need additional documents. Learn more about federal verification.
