Tuition, Fees & Financial Aid

Each year the Financial Aid Office determines the cost of attendance (COA) for the academic year*. This COA includes tuition and fees as well as an allowance for room and board, books and supplies, transportation and personal expenses. Financial aid, including the Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, cannot exceed the cost of attendance. Because COA includes allowances for living expenses, it is not indicative of what the student will owe the Student Accounts Office. A complete listing of all charges and fees for the current academic year can be found here.

Apply for Financial Aid

A student visiting at Loyola Law School and requesting financial aid must apply for assistance through his/her home institution (Loyola does not offer any financial aid to visiting students). The home school must initiate consortium agreements with Loyola's Office of Financial Aid. The home school will collect financial aid application forms and award students' financial aid. Loyola will act as a transfer agent only for disbursing funds to students.

To defer visiting students' tuition accounts pending the receipts of students' loan check, Loyola must have a completed consortium agreement and verification that students' financial aid applications are complete before the first day of classes.

Students needing special classroom or examination accommodations because of disabilities should immediately contact the Office of Students Affairs to arrange for such accommodations.


Merit based scholarships are not available for applicants applying to the joint JD/Tax LLM program. Other scholarship programs exist, however, and all applicants are encouraged to conduct their own search for scholarships.
