The decision to attend law school is a big one. It is a decision that will benefit you for years to come. The next step to realizing your law degree is financing your education.
The office of admissions awards scholarships based on merit. If you did not receive a scholarship from the office of admissions, the Dean of the School of Law has generously developed the Dean's Honor Scholarship. The Dean's Honor Scholarship is available to students who are in the top 10% of their class after their first year.
To begin the application for government student aid, being Stafford and Graduate PLUS loans, please complete the FAFSA. Filing the FAFSA does not affect your ability to receive merit based aid.
Unfortunately, at this time, there are no grants for graduate level students.
Financial aid packets are mailed beginning on March 1 of each year for new students. To receive a financial aid packet, you must file the FAFSA.
The financial aid packet includes useful information about accepting financial aid awards, available student loans and payment of your student account.
Generally students receive the maximum award Stafford loan award of $20,500. The student may borrow additional aid through the Graduate PLUS loan program. The Graduate PLUS loan may be borrowed up to the cost of attendance, less any scholarship and Stafford loans awarded.
The cost of attendance page details the program tuition and other associated costs.
For any detailed questions, please contact the School of Law Financial Aid Office.
