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.

Financial Aid 

Financial aid is available, including scholarships and loans.

You should apply for financial aid at the same time that you apply for admission, although no financial aid award will be made until after you are admitted. It is extremely important to apply properly and on time for all forms of financial aid. Loan amounts are determined by the Office of Financial Aid using the information you provide in the FAFSA form. 

Law school is an investment. Consider carefully how your legal education will be financed and what your needs really are while in school. We would be happy to discuss these issues with you as you make your decision about attending law school.

For information regarding financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at the Law School at (213) 736-1140.


Loyola’s Tax LLM program offers merit scholarships to outstanding candidates.  No separate application for merit scholarships is required.
