Tuition & Financing Your Education
The Law School’s Office of Student and Financial Affairs recognizes that financing your legal education is an important investment in yourself, your future, and the communities you will serve. While the primary responsibility of financing your education rests with you and your family, we are committed to helping you meet your educational goals. To assist students with the costs of attending law school, St. Thomas University School of Law offers financial assistance to eligible law students mainly through the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Direct Student Loan Programs up to their Cost of Attendance.
St. Thomas University School of Law also offers a generous scholarship program that provides merit scholarship opportunities to first-year incoming law students based on LSAT score and undergraduate GPA. Students may earn a merit scholarship in their second and third-year of law school based on class rank and law school GPA. Consideration for merit scholarships is automatically given to all students. Inquiries regarding scholarships should be made to the Law School’s Office of Admissions.
In addition, law students may be eligible to receive funding assistance through other scholarship resources, loan programs, and part-time student employment opportunities. However, the total financial assistance awarded and received from all sources cannot exceed the total Cost of Attendance.
