Cost of Attendance

The cost of attending law school resents significant financial commitment. Students are encouraged to utilize personal resources and reduce expenses whenever possible.

The cost of attendance includes both direct expenses (tuition, fees) and indirect expenses (books, room and board). Your actual personal expenses may be lower than the estimated expenses. Borrow only the minimum amount necessary to meet your educational expenses.
