Financial Aid

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid provides information for and administers all aid programs on campus. For more complete information, please contact that office at (504) 865-3231, by e-mail at finaid@loyno.edu, or on the Internet at www.loyno.edu/financialaid.

Making Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students receiving scholarships and/or other financial assistance have the responsibility to make normal progress toward graduation and completion of their program of study. Recipients of assistance who habitually withdraw from classes or who habitually receive grades which show the coursework was not completed may be judged as not making progress.

Recipients who are in danger of losing financial aid eligibility for failure to make progress are normally warned in writing of the conditions to be met in order to maintain progress. Recipients who fail to meet the terms of the warning will lose the right to participate in all financial aid programs until such time as they will have demonstrated, at their own expense, that they are capable of completing their course of study in an orderly manner. Additional information is available on request in the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, located in Marquette Hall, Room 110 or on the Internet at www.loyno.edu/financialaid

Federal regulations also require that all recipients of federal assistance who have completed two years of study have a grade point average that will permit them to graduate. Students beyond the second year whose average is below this level must be denied access to all federal aid programs until the required grade point average has been regained.
