The Loyola Express Card is much more than just a student identification card. It is a safe, convenient, and economical way to make purchases all over campus without carrying cash, checks, or change. Much like a debit card, students simply deposit money into their Express Card account, and purchases are deducted from the account balance. It has proven to be an excellent method to pre-plan and monitor expenditures.

Many Loyola College of Law graduates devote their careers to public service work as advocates for traditionally under-served communities. Given a significant law school debt burden, such careers might not be feasible without some form of assistance. Since 1991, the Gillis Long Poverty Law Center’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) has tried to address this problem and remains committed to furthering its goal of providing quality legal assistance to communities throughout the country.
