Undergraduate Admissions

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. 

Enrollment Deposit  

For us to accept your admission, you must pay the enrollment deposit. If you’re planning to live on campus, the deposit is $500 ($300 tuition and $200 housing). If you’re junior standing or above, or exempt from our two year on-campus requirement (see housing exemption information below) your deposit is $300 (tuition only).  

This deposit confirms your intent to attend Loyola New Orleans and lets us send you information about orientation, housing, advising and class selection, along with health services, dining services and more.

If you’ve been admitted before late April, your deadline to submit your enrollment deposit is May 1. If you’ve been admitted after late April, please see your acceptance letter for your deposit deadline.

Once you know Loyola is your choice, go to: loyno.edu/deposit to pay by credit card, electronic check or by paper check, which must include this downloadable deposit form.

Important: Loyola New Orleans has a two-year on-campus housing requirement. Your eligibility to be exempt from this requirement as a transfer student depends on the number of earned hours you plan to transfer in.

Completing your financial aid

In order to get a full financial aid offer, you must file the FAFSA. Please contact your financial aid counselor if you aren’t sure what documentation you need or if you need help transferring your FAFSA file to Loyola.

Final Transcripts

Loyola requires you to submit your transcripts from all schools you’ve attended. Shortly after finishing exams, submit a request to your school’s registrar’s office. Transcripts can be emailed, faxed or mailed to the attention of the Admissions Office.

If you’ve taken college or university classes while in high school and want them reviewed for college credit, you’ll need to arrange for your transcript to be sent from that college or university to Loyola admissions before your orientation.

Submitting all test scores NOTE: Links are needed in this section Loyola New Orleans must have copies of your AP or IB test scores from the testing agency in order to award credit. Be sure that all of your scores are on file with the admissions office prior to orientation.

Immunizations

Loyola University New Orleans and Louisiana law requires all incoming students to submit vaccination documentation. This means proof of immunization for:

  • tetanus/diphtheria (one dose within the past 10 years)
  • meningococcal disease (one dose of a meningitis vaccine at the age of 16 years or older OR if age 21 years or older and living in a residence hall then one dose within 5 years)
  • MMR (two doses) for students born after 1956

The Proof of Immunization Compliance Form requires a physician, or other healthcare provider, to verify the data on specific immunizations. We encourage you to get any immunizations you may be missing at home so you can avoid long lines on campus. You may, however, complete your immunization requirements once you get to campus by visiting Student Health Services. The MMR vaccine is $70.00 (USD) per dose, the tetanus vaccine is $45.00 (USD), and the meningococcal vaccine is $120.00 (USD).

Visiting campus  

Please come for our President’s Open House! It’s a special event for admitted students and their families. You’ll get a taste of Loyola, meet students and faculty in your area of study and be able to meet one-on-one with financial aid. If you can’t make it for our President’s Open House, no problem – we have special “Magis” days set aside throughout April for accepted students.

Orientation  

Orientation is mandatory for all new students. Once you’ve paid your enrollment deposit, you’ll be eligible to register for orientation. You can choose from four dates during the summer.

Housing  

To apply for on-campus housing or to submit a housing exemption request, you must activate your residence account. After paying the enrollment deposit, you’ll get a link in an email from Residential Life. This email will have a temporary link for your account that expires in just a couple days – so you need to use it right away to set up your account. Once your account is set up, you can complete your housing application, work on getting a roommate or submit exemption paperwork.

International Transfer Students

Affidavit of Support

To finalize your acceptance as an international student and get an I-20, you need to provide documentation confirming you have funding to cover your expenses for one full year of tuition, room, board and fees at Loyola New Orleans.

Enrollment Deposit

Once you’ve been officially admitted, you’ll get an admissions packet with your official acceptance letter and I-20 visa request forms. Please contact your embassy to start the VISA process right away. The deadline to submit your enrollment deposit is May 1.

For us to accept your admission, you must pay the $500 enrollment deposit. This deposit confirms your intent to attend Loyola New Orleans and lets us send you information about orientation, housing, advising and class selection, along with health services, dining services and more.

Again, the deadline to submit your enrollment deposit is May 1, but once you know Loyola is your choice, go to: loyno.edu/deposit to pay by credit card, electronic check or by paper check, which must include this downloadable deposit form.

Transferring your SEVIS file to Loyola
