Financial Aid, Tuition, & Scholarships

There are Financial Aid programs to suit a wide variety of needs. You may be eligible to receive Federal Financial Assistance in the form of student loans or grants. Loyola University New Orleans uses the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to determine award amounts.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Students can complete their FAFSA online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. In order to complete the FAFSA online, students will need two important codes. Here is how to obtain the information to proceed with an online FAFSA:

  • Students must register for an FSA ID with the U.S. Department of Education. Your FSA ID will serve as your electronic signature on any and all future Federal Financial Aid documents completed online. You can apply for an FSA ID by visiting this website: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid
  • Students must enter the school code for Loyola University New Orleans. When completing the online version of the FAFSA, you will be asked for Loyola University New Orleans' school code (enter 002016 for this question).

Loyola New Orleans Nursing Scholarships

There are two unique scholarships available through Loyola University New Orleans to online nursing students:

  1. The Legacy Scholarship: this scholarship is for alumni to bestow $1,000 in their name to a friend, family member, or colleague who is attending one of Loyola’s online nursing programs. Nominate someone for the Legacy Scholarship.
  2. The Heritage Scholarship: this scholarship is similar to the Legacy Scholarship; however, Loyola alumni bestow the $1,000 funds to themselves in order to continue their education at Loyola. Nominate someone for the Heritage Scholarship.

In addition, there are countless other nursing scholarships distributed by independent organizations, private donors, and more. See our list of nursing scholarships, including scholarship-winning essays, or call 866-789-9809 to speak with a Program Manager who would be happy to help you in your discovery process.

Employer Tuition Reimbursement Program

If your employer provides tuition reimbursement, you may be eligible for a deferral of 90 percent of tuition. To become eligible for this deferment, the student must submit to the dean’s office a copy of the employer’s reimbursement policy and each semester submit verification on company letterhead of the student’s eligibility in the plan.

Each semester the student must submit an updated Employer Reimbursement Agreement form along with 10 percent of tuition and regular fees by the university's due date. Any other charges must be paid within the normal deadlines. Payment in full will be required 30 days after grades are due in the dean’s office. Other reports, such as transcripts and the diploma, are withheld until final payment is received. The Employer Reimbursement Agreement form can be found here.
