LL.M. & M.S.L. Student Budget

Summer 2015 - Spring 2016

Because the University of Dayton is a private institution, tuition costs are the same for all students regardless of their current residency. The University of Dayton School of Law charges tuition per credit hour rather than per academic year. The cost per credit hour for the 2015-2016 academic year is $1,137.
