Entering first-year students should submit the following:
*Optional: SAT II Writing Test (to be used for placement purposes only)
*Adult students without any college credit who are 22 or older are not required to submit ACT or SAT scores. Contact your high school and request to have transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions.
Early Entrance - Certain students who are recommended by their high school principals and are considered by the Admissions Review Committee to be ready for college work may be admitted immediately following the completion of the junior year in high school. This program of admission without high school diploma is intended to serve applicants of unusual promise who will benefit from beginning their college careers a year early. The committee may require additional examinations over and above those normallyrequired for entrance and may make use of any other criteria, such as maturity and motivation, which may seem desirable.
To be considered for undergraduate admission, a transfer student must submit the following:
Note: Students on suspension, exclusion, or dismissal by another university are ineligible to be considered for admission to Loyola until the period of suspension, exclusion, or dismissal is met.
A re-admitted student is one who previously attended Loyola University New Orleans and is returning. If a student has attended another college or university since leaving Loyola, an official transcript from the institution must be submitted. Note: A student who has taken an official leave of absence from the university need not submit an application for admission. Contact the Office of Student Records at 504.865.3237 for re-entry procedures.
Students Returning From Exclusion - Students who fail to remove probation in the specified time may be excluded from the university for a minimum of one semester or for a minimum of one year. If such students wish to return to the university after their exclusion period, they must apply for readmission. Readmission in such cases is not automatic and is decided bythe dean who initiated the academic action as well as the dean of the college to which the student is applying. A mandatory part of the readmission process is an interview with the assistant/associate dean, who will, if the student is readmitted, develop a contract with the student for the appropriate curriculum and required progress. Students who reside out of state may substitute a letter to the assistant/associate dean in lieu of the interview.
Special Evaluation - Applicants who have a grade point average lower than that required for presentation to the Admissions Review Committee and who have not been enrolled at any college or university for at least two calendar years may petition for a special evaluation. In effect, the special evaluation eliminates all courses in which grades of D or F were received. Courses in which the student received a C or better are calculated into hours earned. It is necessary that students receive the written permission of the dean of the college they wish to enter as well as the approval of the director of admissions. Students receiving a special evaluation may not qualify for certain kinds of financial aid.
A non-degree seeking student is one who wishes to take courses at Loyola University New Orleans on a continual basis, without pursuing a degree. An official transcript from the last institution attended is required with an Application for Undergraduate Admission to the university. Contact the Office of Admissions at 504.865.3240 for more information.
Participants in the Reflective Age Program are individuals 65 years of age or older who desire to enroll in the undergraduate academic courses on an "open seat" basis. They may register in audit status (credit will not be awarded) for courses during the late registration period with the permission of the instructor as indicated on the New Seat Card. Students in this program are not charged tuition. However, they are responsible for all university fees.
