Accepted Transfer/Re-Admitted Students

Welcome to Loyola!

Congratulations on your acceptance. We’re just as excited as you about joining the Loyola University New Orleans community. 

Complete your financial aid  

In order to be considered for financial aid, all students must file the FAFSA. Transfer students who have already filed a FAFSA for the academic year, can simply add Loyola's school code - 002016. Should you have any questions about financial aid, please contact us! 

Enrollment Deposit  

Reply to Loyola's offer of admission by submitting your enrollment deposit! The deposit is $500 ($200 for on-campus housing and $300 for tuition). This deposit confirms your intent to attend Loyola New Orleans, and will prompt different offices to send information regarding housing, orientation, advising, health services and more. Transfer students admitted to Loyola before April 15 will be asked to submit an enrollment deposit by May 1. Students admitted after April 15, will be asked to submit an enrollment deposit 2 weeks from the date of acceptance. 


Transfer students are encouraged to live on campus, and we have several residence hall options. Within two weeks of submitting an enrollment deposit, the student will receive a link to Loyola's Housing Application. In order to request a housing exemption, student must complete the application. Students who are at least 21 years of age, OR hold more than 64 transferable credit hours, are not required to live in on-campus housing.

Final Transcripts

Transfer students who apply to Loyola with "in progress" credit, must submit an official copy of the final transcript, once grades are posted. Transcripts can be emailed, faxed or mailed to the attention of the Admissions Office. In order to receive credit for dual enrollment, AP or IB test scores taken during high school, Loyola must have official transcripts from the institution and/or official copies of test scores from the College Board. Be sure that all scores and college credit are received by the Admissions Office prior to orientation. 


Orientation is mandatory for all new students. At orientation, students will meet with an academic advisor, receive a student ID, register for a parking pass, and more. A link to register for orientation will be sent immediately after submitting the enrollment deposit.
