A legal education represents a significant investment, and UConn School of Law offers an exceptional value. The average student debt is among the lowest in the nation.
As a public institution, UConn Law offers a substantial tuition reduction for Connecticut residents. Under the New England Compact, tuition is discounted for residents of Rhode Island and Vermont. In addition, state residency laws allow students from another state to petition after one full year of residency to be reclassified as Connecticut residents, making them eligible for the in-state tuition rate. (Out-of-state applicants are urged to learn more about the policy.)
Tuition and fees are set by the University of Connecticut and represent the costs associated with taking courses at the law school. Fees include the following: general university, technology, student activity, parking and infrastructure maintenance. Student activity fees directly support activities of the Student Bar Association and all student organizations.
Students’ total cost of attendance includes billed tuition and fees as well as estimates for books, supplies, transportation, and living expenses during periods of enrollment. Financial aid, including loans, may not exceed the cost of attendance.
Merit-based scholarships awarded by the Admissions Office may include tuition awards as well as smaller funds from generous donors. There is no additional application process necessary for these scholarships. All students are encouraged to apply for external/private scholarships for which they may be eligible.
