Tuition and Budgeting
We recognize that pursuing a graduate degree in the United States is an expensive undertaking. Scholarship assistance is available to all students, including international students. Students who are US citizens or permanent residents may also apply for low-interest federal student loans to cover the cost of tuition as well as living expenses.
Our application form asks that you describe your financial circumstances. Based on the information you provide in the application, we will make a determination about the level of scholarship support (based on both need and merit) that we can offer. Admitted students who need an I-20 to apply for a student visa or change of status are required to provide original documentation of financial resources sufficient to cover the cost of the LLM Program and all living expenses that will be incurred while pursuing the degree. Applicants who are not US citizens may want to explore the wide variety of funding sources available to those seeking graduate study in the United States. Information about financial aid both US and international students is accessible at http://www.northeastern.edu/law/admission/financial-aid/links.html.
US citizens or permanent residents interested in being considered for financial aid must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Northeastern's federal institution code is 002199. A paper version of the form is available through our office or through the Federal Student Financial Aid Information Center at (800) 433-3243
