Transfer and Re-Admit Personal Statement

Tell us about yourself

The purpose of the essay portion of the Loyola application is to give you the opportunity to make a personal statement and to demonstrate your creativity and ability to organize and express your thoughts.

Complete a personal statement (essay) of 300 to 500 words detailing your reasons for wishing to transfer to Loyola and what factors influenced your choice to apply. This essay will be used as an important document in scholarship consideration. If you were previously enrolled at Loyola, please let us know why you would like to return.

You will be prompted to include your essay when completing the online application. Please type your essay and include it as a part of your Application for Undergraduate Admissions. If emailing, mailing or faxing your essay, include your name, birthdate, and the date on the essay.
