Financial Aid

Most of our students receive financial aid. Applicants should visit the financial aid website or contact the office via e-mail at or phone at 1-800-891-4596.


Applicants who feel that they might be in contention for a scholarship should file their law school application as early as possible, because scholarship offers may be made as early as December. There is no need to fill out a separate scholarship application. Acceptance of a scholarship still requires the payment of both seat deposits.


All J.D. applicants are given automatic consideration for entering, renewable scholarships.  Most of our scholarships are merit-based, but we also review applicants holistically based on the following factors:

  • Academic Excellence and Other Indicators of High Achievement
  • Contributions to Diversity of the Class
  • Residency
  • Recruiting Considerations
  • Special Endowed Scholarships

Dean’s Scholarships

Nonresident applicants who display academic excellence, possess a strong LSAT score or contribute to diversity receive consideration for the Dean’s Scholarships. Each scholarship covers a substantial portion of the cost of nonresident tuition.
