Law Students

Loyola Law School recognizes that a legal education is an important lifetime investment for each student. Therefore, the Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting you as you navigate through the financial aid process. 

The Financial Aid Office asks you to consider carefully how your legal education will be financed and what are your needs while in law school. We are happy to discuss these issues with you as you begin to evaluate your options.

Applying for aid

For most students, the primary source of financial aid is through loans obtained from the federal government. In order to apply for aid, there are a few steps you must take.

Loyola Law School offers a variety of financial assistance programs, including scholarships, loans, and work-study. It is important to apply properly and on-time for all forms of financial assistance. Loan amounts are determined by the Office of Financial Aid using the information you provide in the FAFSA form.

PROWL and self-service resources

You will receive notification from Loyola Law School Admissions when you are able to access the self-service portal called PROWL. Once you have been granted access, you can review and accept your aid and see any missing requirements, such as your Terms and Conditions. We have provided PROWL Information for you here. 

Cost of Attendance Appeals and Revision Requests

It is possible that you may need to make revisions to your financial aid. Some students may choose to reduce/ increase an accepted loan, request work study, and/ or request an adjustment to their Cost of Attendance (COA). These items, and more, can be addressed by submitting the following form:‌

Scholarships

Loyola Law School offers scholarships to many of our entering students. Students are considered when they apply and notification is sent with their admit packet. Award decisions are merit-based. There is also certain renewal criteria that is required in order to continue to receive your scholarship after the first year. For more specific information, please refer to your admit packet.

Admitted students who have questions about their scholarship or receiving a scholarship should contact Assistant Dean of Admissions, Jannell Lundy Roberts at jannell.roberts@lls.edu.

If you did not receive a scholarship, we encourage you to search for other sources of additional funding. More information can be found in these links:
