After a challenging spring semester for recruitment due to COVID-19, Loyola University Maryland has exceeded its goal for deposits for the Class of 2024. As of June 9, 2020, the University had 1,090 deposits from students—40 students ahead of the target for the incoming class.
So far, the class is also the most racially diverse class welcomed to Loyola, with 34% of applicants identifying as students of color, and it boasts the highest average high school GPA the University has seen. Incoming students from Maryland stand at 29% of the class, which would mark the largest in-state enrollment for an incoming class in more than a decade.
The Class of 2024 is also the strongest academic incoming class on record with an average GPA of 3.64. It is one of the most socioeconomically diverse classes on record; 18% of the class is Pell Grant eligible. In addition, 17% of the class are first-generation college students—the second largest cohort of first-generation students on record.
