Prospective Students

You can afford to invest in your dreams and help build a better future.

Investing in law school can put you on the path that leads to professional and personal success and Howard University School of Law is committed to helping you make this investment possible in assisting America and the Global Community future. Tuition and fees for this academic year are affordable. Financial assistance for law school comes as either merit-based scholarship or financial aid in the form of loans.

A student’s financial aid package or a combination of awards – including scholarships (both from the law school and from outside sources), loans, grants, and work-study awards, cannot exceed the total cost of attendance for a nine month academic year. 

The cost of attendance is determined by Howard University and includes an allowance for tuition, fees, books, and the basic living expenses. Students are required to inform the School of Law’s Financial Aid Office if they receive an award that is not reflected in the University’s financial aid award.
