Cost and Financial Aid
Students enrolling at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents, and who are therefore ineligible for federal aid programs, are expected to cover the cost of their legal education on their own. Private loans may be available for international students from some lenders, although they usually require U.S. co-signers. All international students who hold U.S. citizenship or a green card are fully eligible to receive federal financial aid.
Each year Hofstra Law offers a number of partial merit scholarships of varying amounts to highly accomplished international LL.M. students. Additionally, Hofstra Law’s Office of Financial Aid has an extensive list of external scholarship programs that students can review when considering how best to fund their LL.M. program.
