School of Law Affordability

The Bottom Line: A Law Degree Is Within Reach

The first thing you'll discover is how affordable a University of Dayton law degree can be. We award scholarships to over half of each entering class, and generous financial aid awards can help you cover the remainder of the cost.

The first step to applying for financial aid is to apply and be accepted to the University of Dayton School of Law. The federal government requires that any student seeking the use of Title IV funds must first be admitted to a degree-seeking program.

Once you have been accepted to the School of Law, you should file your FAFSA. Then, we will begin to prepare your aid for the upcoming year.

If you plan to use student loans as a means to cover the costs of law school, we suggest you review your credit report on an annual basis to correct any inaccuracies. A good credit rating facilitates a lower interest rate and quicker loan approval for the private alternative loan programs.
