The Financial Aid staff is committed to supporting you during your three years at the law school and beyond. While it is likely that your financial picture will remain the same during your time at the law school, we encourage you to seek us out if you have questions about your assistance package, changes in your financial situation and for information about loans, loan repayment or any other financing options available to you.

We would like to remind you that:

  • All merit scholarships are guaranteed for the three years you are enrolled at the law school as long as you are in good academic standing
  • You may apply for additional scholarships (endowed scholarships) through the financial aid office for your second and third year of law school
  • You must fill out a FAFSA for each year you plan to be on financial assistance by the stated filing dates to ensure priority consideration
  • We have a Loan, Deferral and Forgiveness Program that we encourage you to look into if you plan to pursue a public interest law career
