At Northeastern University School of Law, we are committed to providing access to all admitted students. Each year, the School of Law awards more than $1 million to first-year students based on a combination of need and merit. We recognize that most students require financial assistance to cover the cost of attending law school; our job is to make that process as smooth as possible for you.
The law school offers financial assistance through federal and institutional aid programs. In order to be considered for these programs, students must complete the financial aid process each year.
Some students mistakenly believe they must wait for a decision on their admission application before beginning their aid application. It is important that any student interested in receiving aid apply by the priority application dates. To be considered for all sources of financial assistance students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). NUSL does NOT require parental information on the FAFSA.
Applicants should file this form through the federal government's Website: 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. 2013-2014 Priority Filing Date for FAFSA is February 15, 2013.
