Applying for Grad PLUS/Private Loans
There is no financial aid deadline for entering 1Ls and all information is strictly confidential.
There are four types of financial aid for which you may qualify: merit-based scholarships, need-based grants, competing scholarships, and loans.
Need-Based Grants Procedures (for your first year, only)To determine if you might qualify for need-based grants, admitted students must complete our simple online questionnaire, available in early March, on the Admitted Students website. Click on Financial Aid and Need-Based Application to access the questionnaire. If it appears that you may be eligible for need-based grants after completing the questionnaire (available in March), we will direct you to complete additional financial aid information on the 2020-2021 College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS Profile) to assist us in determining your available resources.
Competing Aid ProceduresIf you are not eligible for need- or merit-based aid from the Law School, we can, under certain circumstances, take competing aid offers from peer law schools into account. Please email or fax copies of your financial aid offers from other institutions to see how we can help.
Loan ProceduresPlease note that only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for federal Direct Unsubsidized or Grad PLUS loans, and private loan programs typically require a U.S. cosigner. Our non-U.S. citizen sample loan comparison chart/FAQ [PDF] provides an overview for a couple of lenders.
