Undergraduate Admissions

Returning/Re-Admit Applicants

Let's Get Started

A re-admit student is a student who previously attended Loyola University New Orleans and would like to apply for readmission. 

Students that did not take an official leave of absence, those who withdrew from the University voluntarily or had a medical withdrawal, and those who were suspended and/or dismissed must reapply for admission through the Office of Admissions.

Various criteria may be considered during the evaluation of the student’s application for readmission, including but not limited to: cumulative grade point average, major grade point average, prior academic record and prior disciplinary issues. A student's academic status at the time the student withdrew, or was withdrawn from the university, remains in effect at the time of re-admission.

Please note: re-admission to the university is distinct and separate from financial aid eligibility and review. Re-admission decisions are made at the discretion of a committee consisting of members from the Offices of Admission, Scholarships and Financial Aid, and the Associate Dean of the College in which the student was most recently enrolled, among others.

Please note: no application will be considered for any student with an outstanding financial balance owed to the university, or who has an active hold on his/her record. No application will be considered for students who are ineligible to return to a previous college or university.

Please see below for specific instructions on reapplying to Loyola based on your individual circumstances.

If you were a student who took a leave of absence, contact the Office of Student Records at (504) 865-3237 for reinstatement.

NOTE: a student’s previous level of financial aid is not guaranteed to be reinstated. Each student will be evaluated for scholarships if they are readmitted. Current financial aid information will be required for the Office of Financial Aid to create a new award offer.
