Frequently Asked Questions


Hi, I'm Nikita, the Assistant Director for Campus Visits and Events for Loyola University New Orleans. Ask me a question about Loyola.

For example, you might ask Nikita, "How do I schedule a visit?" or "When is the application deadline?"

Quick Answer


Loyola's priority deadline for admission consideration is December 1. The regular deadline for application for admissions is February 15. Loyola University New Orleans will continue to accept applications for admission on a rolling admissions basis after February 15 on a space availability basis. For best consideration, students should apply by December 1.

Students may choose to use the Common Application (click here).  or Loyola's online web application (click here).  Most applications are filed early in the fall semester to observe the December 1 priority deadline.

Once a student's file is complete, the Office of Admissions will contact him/her within 2 to 3 weeks with notice of an admission decision. A student's file is complete when the office has received a completed application, essay, resume, counselor/teacher recommendation(s), official high school transcript, and official test score(s.) 

Students entering in the first year typically begin with the fall semester following their high school graduation. First year and transfer students can apply for either the fall or spring semester. Applicants are asked to indicate the appropriate term on the application. 

Once a student's file is complete, the student will be notified of his or her admission status within 2 to 3 weeks by the Office of Admissions.  Loyola abides by the national candidate's reply date of May 1 for students to notify the institution of their enrollment decision.
