Visiting Students to the John Felice Rome Center and The Beijing Center
Federal regulations allow a student to receive financial assistance only from the school from which he/she will receive a degree. A visiting student who attends Loyola's Rome and Beijing Centers cannot receive federal, state or institutional grant or loan assistance from Loyola.
If the students "home" school agrees to process aid on the student's behalf, the student must arrange for a consortium agreement between the student's school and Loyola. This agreement allows the home school to award summer financial assistance, even though the student is enrolled at Loyola. Inquiries regarding consortium agreements should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Some schools do not allow participation in consortium agreements; your home school will determine your eligibility for a consortium agreement.
The options for financial assistance for students in ineligible programs are limited to Alternative Loans offered by Loyola's suggested lenders.

Students interested in these programs are encouraged to contact OSFA as soon as possible. Loyola academic scholarships and Loyola grants cannot be used for study abroad or study away programs. All financial aid processing must be completed before your departure.
