Financial Literacy

We understand the financial commitment and sacrifice students and their families make to further their education. At Loyola University Chicago, we encourage students to make sound financial decisions. The Financial Aid Office's Financial Literacy & Debt Management program offers a variety of services to help you manage your loan borrowing and make informed decisions about your financial wellbeing. Workshops and presentations are offered throughout the year, providing valuable information and strategies to help you manage your spending, understand loan debt, and learn more about other important financial decisions. To learn more click here
