Support Services and Facilities

The University Bulletin serves as an annual record of academic program requirements and regulations. Beyond that specific academic regulatory scope are the support services, facilities, and regulations that encompass all the other aspects of life in a university community. 

Additional regulatory scope for student and university community life is maintained through several of the offices listed below. The Office of Public Safety publishes parking regulations, for example. The Office of Student Affairs publishes regulatory information including but not limited to the Student Code of Conduct and Immunization Policies published by the Student Health Services. Members of the university community are also responsible for being familiar with and in adherence to all conduct and health requirements.

The following directory is presented to provide a connection to those resources.

International Education & Study Abroad

With over 200 students from 50 different countries, and approximately 30% of students graduating with experience abroad and academic courses with a global perspective, Loyola University New Orleans is truly an international institution. The Center for International Education (CIE) works with faculty, staff, and students to promote and develop the international character of the university.

For students wanting an education abroad experience, the Center for International Education is the first stop with advising and information on both Loyola and non-Loyola programs, financial aid, and scholarships. Staff work with students to help them find the right program that will meet their academic and personal goals, financial situation, and interests. Applications for non-Loyola study abroad programs must be approved by the student's advisor/s and by the appropriate dean's office.

Numerous Study Abroad programs are available for Loyola students. There are semester and year-long programs, community service/immersion programs, components to academic courses, and summer study abroad. While the majority of students study abroad for summer programs, a growing number of students are selecting semester or year-long programs. Students can attend both Loyola and non-Loyola programs, but Loyola financial aid can usually only be applied to Loyola exchange programs, the Magis exchange program, and ISEP exchanges. Priority deadlines are May 1 for the spring and December 1 for the fall. Students must apply by the deadlines of October 1 for the spring and March 1 for the fall in order to receive credit for non-Loyola programs abroad.
