Tuition and Financial Aid

Students in the J.D./M.P.H. program pay tuition as follows:

  • When they enroll in the first-year curriculum at the Law School, they pay the flat rate of a full-time law student. Similarly, if they take a year of courses only in the School of Health Sciences and Human Services, they pay flat, full-time tuition there.
  • After beginning the J.D./M.P.H. program, students are charged at a per-credit rate by each school, based on the courses they are taking within each school.

For any student who receives a Law School scholarship, the remaining scholarship after the first year is allocated over the remaining Law School credits and applied equally over the student’s next three years until completion of both degrees. If the student takes longer than four years to complete the joint degree program, the scholarship will not apply after the fourth year.

The packaging of students’ financial aid will be handled by both the Law School Office of Financial Aid and the Hofstra University Student Financial Services office, depending on students’ course load.
