Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Assistance's objective is to provide a positive financial aid experience for each of our students. We are committed to providing students with financial aid resources to meet the educational costs of attending law school. Our staff assists students with all financial aid processes including application procedures, resource comparison, and the utilization of funds.

We look forward to being an integral part of your educational experience.
