Cost and Financial Aid

Funding Your Law School Experience

The Law School’s Office of Financial Aid endeavors to provide assistance to each student so that they will be able to meet the overall cost of their legal education. The goal of the office is to assist each student in obtaining sufficient funding to bridge the difference between the student’s own resources and the cost of attending law school.

Financial assistance may be awarded in the form of scholarships, fellowships, federal loans, Federal Work-Study and private loans. Financial aid comes from public and private sources and is awarded on the basis of need and academic merit. All forms of financial aid, with the exception of Federal Work-Study, are offset against tuition.
