Scholarship, Tuition, & Visa Information


Each and every student is considered for scholarship during the admission process and no separate application is required for this. Loyola Law School values academic excellence and may award a merit-based scholarship of up to $30,000.

In addition to Loyola’s scholarship, students are encouraged to seek outside scholarship opportunities. Many international institutions and programs offer merit-based scholarship to students interested in pursuing a graduate degree in the United States. Following is a partial list of funding opportunities. This list is for informational purposes and does not imply any connection with, or endorsement by, Loyola Law School.   Information below is kept as current as possible; please contact each organization for the most current information and requirements.

Tuition and Visa Information


Tuition for the 2022 - 2023 school year is $62,390. For more information, please view our Tuition and Fees page and our Cost of Attendance page.


Tuition is charged in two separate installments, at the beginning of each semester. Loyola Law School also offers a payment plan option, where students can pay for their tuition in monthly installments. Please be aware that the payment plan option does not change visa requirements and, therefore, students will have to prove at the time of visa application the availability of sufficient funds (through personal assets or other forms) to cover the full tuition and living expenses.


LMU hosts both F-1 and J-1 visas for international students. Please see Immigration Forms and Resources for additional details (undergraduate and graduate).


As an international student at Loyola, it is your responsibility to know and understand U.S. immigration regulations, which are enforced by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) under the Department of Homeland Security.

Please carefully review the information below. If you need assistance or have questions, contact LMU's Office for International Students & Scholars (OISS) at

Visitors with B-2 visas intending to visit academic institutions in the U.S. must declare their intentions as a "Prospective Student" or "Prospective Exchange Visitor" at the Port of Entry. B-2 visitors who fail to do this are no longer eligible for a "change of status" within the U.S. and must depart the country to apply for an F-1 visa.


As soon as you have been accepted to LMU, follow the appropriate checklist to make sure you meet all of the immigration and enrollment requirements.
