Law School Cost of Attendance

Each year, the financial aid office prepares a student expense budget defining estimated standard allowances for education costs for graduate and professional students. The cost of attendance includes average amounts for standard expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, room, board, and other living expenses.

Estimated budgets differ by program of study. Your actual costs may be different depending on unit enrollment and other program fees. In some cases we can increase your budget to take into account additional expenses such as medical expenses, computer purchases, or child care expenses. See the Law School Revision Request and COA Appeal Form for additional information.

The academic year is a nine month period between mid-August through mid-May and does not include summer. To see the typical cost of attendance of your program, select your program of study below:
