All tuition is charged on a per unit basis for the Certificate, Master's, and LL.M. Degree Programs. Tuition for the 2013 - 2014 academic year is $1715 per unit.
Our academic programs consist of the following units; Certificate 14 units, Master's 32 units and LL.M. 28 units.
Students in the Institute's degree programs have several financial assistance options for funding their professional education. Extensive student loan programs, as well as payment plans to spread tuition payments over the time students are in school, are available. Additional information regarding financial aid can be found at the Financial Aid site. Students participating in a joint degree program with Straus need to refer to the financial aid department of their home university for additional funding, including GSBM, GSEP, and SPP.
The Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution is pleased to offer the Dispute Resolution Fellowship Program. Students admitted to or applying for admission to the LL.M. or Master's of Dispute Resolution program are eligible to apply to receive a Straus Institute Fellowship award for the 2014-2015 academic year.
While Fellows will receive a tuition remission award of up to $7,500, the program is not designed to be a traditional financial aid program. A committee of faculty and administrators from the Straus Institute and the School of Law will review all applications. They will consider financial needs as only one of several criteria and will focus substantially on the candidate's capabilities in contributing to the dispute resolution field.
Fellowships will be awarded for one academic year and usually commence at the beginning of the Fall semester. The deadline to apply for the 2014-2015 Dispute Resolution Fellowship Program is April 18, 2014. Students selected as Fellows from these applications will be able to apply their tuition benefits toward the Fall 2014, Winter Intensive 2015, Spring 2015 and Summer 2015 terms. Applications should be submitted with the Fellowship Application Form. The Straus Institute expects that Fellows will serve for only one year and will not be selected for a second Fellowship. Please note that students who were awarded Fellowships in conjunction with their admission are not eligible to apply for additional awards.
